Eyelid Surgery Didn't Work. Still Have Moderate Puffiness

Love the way my upper eyes look now. Lower eyelids are still pretty puffy.

I did this surgery because I looked so tired. I was once a model and now look a lot older and tired then I am.

I had lower Blepharoplasty one and a half years ago. After the procedure the Doctor said there was little fat and didn't remove very much. He said the puffiness was muscle laxity and fluid. I still have moderate puffiness. The physician said I would need cheek implants and a mid-face lift to correct this. I cannot believe this is the only other treatment for me.

Could laser help? Something like Profractional laser? My eyelid puffiness very much inhibits me from being the person I once was.

Very thoughful and informed of potential furture problems.

Same issue here! I have had 2 revisions on my lower eye. It's getting to be too expensive to have plastic surgery every few years when it only returns. I am now trying Lymphic Drainage. The massage leaves you feeling great if nothing else. I havn't had enough treatments yet to tell if it'll work but I'll let you know if it is helpful! If you have found any solutions please let me know!

I have puffiness under my eyes that kind of looks like that. The puffiness under my eyes is pseudo-fat herniation and fluid retention from poor lymphatic drainage. The puffiness was caused by too much botox or misplaced botox in the crows feet area and particularly from a shot of botox under the lower eye lashes. I have puffiness under both eyes, but I only had the under lash shot on one side (left) and the puffiness is markedly worse under my left eye than under my right eye. Do you use botox? I would be disappointed if I had your level of puffiness after a bleph, so I am just wondering if you had considered that it might be caused by something else like botox. Just a thought. Cheers

From your side profile, I can only see that you need your laugh line filled in with one of the available filler on the market. Without seeing your face entirely, I cannot say anything more. You look like you are in your early 40's and with the laugh line filled in you can pass for about 35.

Here's another Doctor Q&A thread that lists some of the different treatments for tired/puffy eyes. Certainly not all will be right for you, but it should give you some ideas!

Tired eyes - how do I get rid of them?

Good luck!
