Under eyes bags? Festoons at 20? (photos)
Doctor Answers 2
Hi eklat272,Thanks for your question and photos. In the first photo, I can appreciate some malar edema causing lower lid bags. This is especially difficult to treat with surgery or filler since they both tend to make swelling (aka edema) worse. We have had good results lately with injection of tetracycline (an antibiotic) into the area of edema. It causes about 2 weeks of redness and swelling but at the conclusion, the malar edema is improved. At just 20 years old, I would certainly only recommend non-surgical interventions. I would seek a consultation with a skilled oculoplastic surgeon in your area. Good luck!
