If you have dark circles under your eyes or long-lasting bags that permanently give your face a tired appearance, tear trough correction can reverse these signs of aging. Tear trough correction can be done for patients of any age, as under-eye bags can happen anytime.
After any tear trough correction procedure, you may feel mild discomfort including bruising or swelling that can last up to 7 days or 1 week. You may take over-the-counter pain medication based on Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz’s recommendations, however, he may prescribe you a stronger medication if necessary.
Non-surgical procedures result in no scarring. In the case of a surgical blepharoplasty, a small incision is made along the lash line. Once healed, a small scar will remain hidden and blend in.
This varies depending on how deep your tear troughs are and if you need a multi-procedure plan to correct them. As this is generally an elective cosmetic procedure, the cost is usually out of pocket, but there are financing and payment options available if needed.
Swelling and bruising are normal side effects that can take at least 1 week to subside. This can also cause some asymmetry between your eyes as one may heal faster than the other. You should be able to return to your normal activities after two weeks once the swelling is gone.
If you suffer from dark circles and/or hollowing of the under eyes, you may be a good candidate for tear trough correction. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz requires that any patient interested in undergoing tear trough correction meet for a consultation before scheduling any surgery. This will allow him to evaluate your needs and establish your eligibility.
