The under-eye tear trough filler procedure performed with a cannula is effective and safe for a vast number of patients.
However, like most treatments, it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Whether or not it will work for you all comes down to your anatomy and the cause of your eye bags.
In general, patients whose eye bags are caused by:
- facial fat loss and hollowing of the under-eye area,
- mild to moderate bulging lower eyelid fat pads,
- or facial shadowing around the eye area…
…are most likely to have good results with under-eye fillers.
Eye bags caused by thin eyelid skin or increased pigmentation around the eyes are typically better served by another treatment.
Dr. Kotlus will examine your facial shape and help you determine the cause of your eye bags during your consultation appointment. Then, he’ll recommend whether or not under-eye fillers are a good option for you.
Take a look:
Some patients will have great results with 50% improvement, while others will have totally transformative results of nearly 100% improvement. In people with more significant bags or bags that are a result of multiple causes, Dr. Kotlus may suggest surgical options instead.
Rest assured—Dr. Kotlus will estimate ahead of time what type of results you can realistically expect. And if he doesn’t believe fillers will benefit you, he won’t perform the procedure and will work with you to find a more effective treatment for your needs.
