Help! Is this right for me?

This is something that has been bothering me for years, I've tried Botox and also tear fillers. I feel like your eyes are the window to your soul and mine look tired and old. Is this procedure right for me? I'm only 23 and I have horrible under eye wrinkles and my eyelids sag over. What sort of price am I looking at?

    Hi Tegandasha,


    The lower eyelid can be rejuvenate in a number of ways. The structure of the lower eyelid consists of skin, underlying eyelid muscle, orbital fat and ligaments and finally bone.


    Looking at your photo you do have some laxity in the tear trough ligament that has caused a moderate tear trough deformity (dark lines) with minor excess skin. I would recommend a formal lower eyelid blepharoplasty which will look more natural than fillers and give a long lasting result.


    I hope this helps

    Thanks for posting your question and photographs.  There are several different ways to non surgically treat the under eye area as you have already experienced.  You display mild skin laxity under your eyes and significant dark circles which may be improved with a lower lid blepharoplasty.  Arrange a consultation with a fully qualified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
