Pair Lower Eyelid Surgery with Dermal Fillers for Ultimate Results

Fine lines and wrinkles around and below your eyes were probably your first signs of aging. RefinedMD combines the power of cosmetic surgery with the best aesthetic treatments to help you turn back the clock. Lower eyelid surgery, or lower blepharoplasty, is a fast and effective way to get rid of lines, wrinkles, and undereye bags. It can even help minimize the appearance of undereye circles, but it usually won’t get rid of them completely. However, when you combine this surgery with dermal fillers, you may be able to vanquish undereye circles immediately.

Rejuvenate Your Eyes

Undereye circles are usually caused by a lack of fat and muscle in this area (in less common cases, the dark circles are actually hyperpigmentation of the skin itself—and we have different treatments for that). The face naturally has minimal fat and muscle in the undereye area. As we lose what little “good fat” we did have there, the dark circles become more and more prominent.

Sometimes shadows can exacerbate the appearance of dark circles. Lower blepharoplasty will certainly get rid of that issue by removing excess, sagging skin causing the shadows. However, some patients are disappointed to find that dark circles persist.

Wrinkles, lines, and bags are just one sign of aging around the eyes. Those dark circles are also a giveaway. The only way to hide them is by replacing the lost fat. Dermal fillers are an excellent stand-in, and are almost all made with hyaluronic acid. This is a type of acid that already occurs in the body, so there’s virtually no risk of your body rejecting it.

Schedule Your Eyelid Surgery Consultation

When there’s enough “fat” (or fillers) between the skin’s surface and blood vessels, the dark circles lessen or disappear. If you really want to maximize the results of your lower eyelid lift, you’ll likely want to add dermal fillers to your treatment. Some fillers last six months while other last two years, so you can test out the look or enjoy a semi-permanent result. To learn more or schedule your consultation, connect with RefinedMD today.
