Fillers for under eye hollowing
It is difficult to answer this question without being able
to evaluate a photo or seeing you in person. Fat transfer to the lower eye area
is a much more involved procedure with more downtime and higher risk. As
general recommendation of someone your age the Hyaluronic Acid fillers
(Belotero Balance/ Restylane/Juvederm) would be the best for the hollowing and
smile lines. One syringe should be more than enough to fill the area in
question. These fillers are temporary so will need to be repeated, but in
my opinion this can be a benefit in a younger patient as the face changes with
age. If fine lines around the eyes are a concern this is best treated with a
Botox product. Please be sure to consult with a surgeon who has
ample experience with both and can evaluate your needs appropriately.

Fillers, lasers, microneedling, fat all do well for this area. I suggest seeing an expert for an evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.
There is no question that hyaluronic acid fillers are far more predictable and infinitely more adjustable than grafted fat.
While the prospect of a treatment that lasts forever should so promising, grafted fat does not deliver on the promise. I see 2 to 3 new consultation a week for individuals who need fat removed from their lower eyelid. Also the midface and lower eyelid are glide planes. Grafted fat scars these planes and this adversely affects how the face moves when you smile. You will not like this. On the other hand, hyaluronic acid fillers will last a year or more and causes no scaring. If there is an issue with a hyaluronic acid filler treatment, it can easily be removed with enzyme. Please be careful what you look for, you may find it.

Thank you for asking about your facial lines and filler.
- Without being able to see a photo, here is a general approach -
- For lines around the eyes, Botox is the best answer by far.
- For hollowing, Restylane filler can usually help.
- Fat transfers are more expensive and have a significant recovery - start with fillers before doing more.
- For the eyes, you should need no more than one syringe.
Always see a Board

It is difficult to assess the problem without photos but for general hollowing under the eye, a quick and simple solution would be to have hyaluronic acid fillers to these areas. It does not require surgery and is temporary in case you do not like the appearance. Most fillers come in 1cc aliqouts and that is usually more than enough for the eyelid areas. Fat transfer is a permanent solution that can benefit some patients but not ideal for all. It depends on your appearance and anatomy. For the best treatment options, it is important to visit an expert for an in-person examination. Hope this helps!

Thank your for your question. Misspria without having an assessment, it is very hard to give you advice. Many of my patients opt to have fillers under their eyes and find it a very beneficial temporary solution. Please seek out a board certified plastic surgeon in your area with an expertise in facial/eye aesthetics and discuss treatment options.
All The Best!
Thank you for sharing your questions. Without seeing you in person or evaluating photos, it is difficult to give proper guidance. Typically, 1cc of Restylane is more than enough to correct the tear troughs. See an experienced Oculoplastic Surgeon for comprehensive evaluation and discussion of treatment options.
