The problem is usually the combination of dark circles, bags, and excessive visibility of the tear trough.
Interventions in the lower eyelid and midrange areas are the fastest developing areas in aesthetic plastic surgery. The trend is to replenish the volume of tissues, to retain the remaining fat, to inject autologous fat into the affected areas, and after filling, to remove excess skin. With severe undereye bags, it may be necessary to partially remove excess fat, but we often choose fat transfer.
For restoring the volume, synthetic material (hyaluronic acid) can be used besides the body’s own fat, but this can only be achieved by skilled hands. In the absence of adequate preparedness, it is conceivable that the material is not of high quality, injected into the wrong place, or used in cases where is not ideal.
The spectacular beneficial effect of good quality and correctly administered hyaluronic acid lasts 1-2 years, and the result is almost instantaneous. After the intervention, you need to come back to a follow-up exam which contains a special facial massage.
With an autologous fat transfer, one procedure is usually enough for life, as the fat tissues “stay in place”, like they would have stayed if they had been left in the place from where they were transplanted. In the case of frequent weight change, it is not worth applying lipofilling, as significant weight loss will damage the result.
Treatment of dark circles and undereye bags can, therefore, be performed by surgical or non-invasive interventions or combinations of these. In a personal consultation, we will reconcile the most appropriate individual solution.
A specialist in the area around the eye is experienced both in the field of plastic surgery and ophthalmology, which is by no means a dermatological competence. We call this field oculoplastic surgery or periorbital plastic surgery. Basically, most plastic surgeons have enough experience to perform these routine interventions.
