Am I a candidate for tear trough implants?
Tear trough implants are used in a procedure done to correct a condition known as Tear Trough Deformity and/or to improve hollowsand dark circles under the eyes. In a majority of older patients, the protruding eyelid skin and fat of their lower eyelids cast shadows that accentuate dark circles under their eyes. Tear Trough Deformity is a depression of the medial lower eyelid where it meets the cheek. With aging the hollowing and dark circle appearance under the eye becomes deeper, longer and runs down and out into the cheek. For some people it is a small groove and for others it is extremely deep. The condition tends to worsen with age and is often hereditary.
Tear Trough Implant Surgery
Tear trough implants are made of silicone – a soft rubber-like material that is inserted through a small incision and placed over the bone mass under the eyelid to augment its shape and create a more youthful appearance. Dr. Prasad performs tear trough implant surgery with a transconjunctival method of putting implants in place by way of a small laser incision on the inside of the eyelid. By using this advanced surgical technique, there are no visible signs of scarring since there is no incision made on the outside of the eyelid. Transconjunctival tear trough implant surgery has a quicker healing time post-surgery than less effective surgical techniques and leaves no change to the shape of the eyelid.
Let us help you to regain a natural and youthful appearance so you can face the world – looking your best! Please note, that we have several members of our staff who are fluent in Spanish should this be desired.
