Where to place fillers for tear trough correction
Thank you for your question. In my opinion, fillers should be placed directly on top of the bone when correcting tear trough deformity. The skin is very thin in that area and superficial placement of the filler might lead to filler visibility. I hope this helps. Best wishes!
Filler and location.
I am on the same page as your surgeon. It is interesting you reviewed a skull because that will help understand this. So there is a nasojugular ligament that is attached at the medial towards the nose part of the eye socket and that becomes joined with a band of the circular orbicularis muscle. These together cause this demarcation that separates the eye from the cheek. It becomes a valley at this point. So this is the area we need to lift. To lift an area there must be support to build. Like building a house on a foundation. So we use he bones orbit to push up the soft tissues of this area which helps camoflauge the eye bag demarcation.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck,
