There are many ways to address the aging in this area. If the hollow under the eye is the only issue, an injection of a small amount of filler may solve the problem for a year or more. Sometimes we can inject fat taken from other parts of your body into the cheek to blend an early descent of the cheek pad from the bone. And sometimes we need to do a more extensive lift.
Many surgeons advocate two or three incisions to get this job done. We have condensed these incisions down to one made under the lower eyelid, combining a mid-face lift with a lower lid blepharoplasty. The result is a smooth round youthful cheek with a minimum of surgery. In most cases, you will be able to return to work after about a week.
A consultation with the experienced surgeons at Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery can help you determine exactly what procedure or combination of procedures will be the best option for you.
