Under eye hollows – under the knife or injectables?
Under the knife, meaning surgery, for under eye hollows is done a lot less nowadays because of the introduction of non-surgical cosmetic treatments, such as Restylane TearFill.
However, if you are going to have surgery under the eyes, this needs to be assessed by an oculoplastic surgeon. The surgeon will decide whether to do fat grafting, either from the tummy or from around the eyelids, into the lower lid/tear trough area and upper cheek. Many people regard injectables as much more tolerable and suitable. In the delicate under eye area, injectables are sometimes not so effective. When the patient is around 45-50 years, an eyelid surgery “under the knife” may be a better option.
