There are many plastic surgeries and cosmetic procedures that improve the look of the under eyes. Tear trough fillers and blepharoplasty are two of the most common procedures performed to address the under eye area. How do you know if you need fillers or eyelid surgery? Dr. Santos can determine if under eye fillers vs. lower blepharoplasty will provide you the best results.

Under eye fillers are injected to address dark circles and a sunken appearance. Adults of all ages receive tear trough fillers because this sunken, dark look can occur due to genetics. Aging can also contribute to volume loss in the area. Dermal fillers can plump this area for a natural look that removes a permanently tired appearance. 

Lower blepharoplasty, also known as a lower eyelid lift, addresses extra skin and sagging of the lower eyelids. This can sometimes produce a sunken appearance, although in most cases, will cause extra skin and fat to occur. Lower blepharoplasty surgery removes excess skin and fat from the area for a more youthful look.  

When it comes to under eye fillers vs. lower blepharoplasty, fillers typically treat a sunken appearance while an eyelid lift removes extra skin and fat gathered under the eyes.
