Return Volume To Your Skin

The tear trough is the deep crease between your lower eyelid and upper cheek. Many people find that they look tired from shadows under their eyes.

While this can be a product of lack of sleep, it can also be hereditary or an unwanted sign of aging. Tear trough correction is designed to treat this issue by reducing the depth of it through the injection of a dermal filler, fat grafting and repositioning, surgical blepharoplasty, chemical peels, and skincare. This can decrease the hollowness and return volume to your skin. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jose Rodríguez-Feliz specializes in a variety of cosmetic procedures, including tear trough correction, eyelid surgery, and deep plane facelifts. Dr. Rodriguez understands patient needs, allowing him to provide the highest level of service throughout your experience with him and his staff. Together, they will produce the best results to help you regain balance and harmony to your face.

What Is Tear Trough Correction?

Tear trough correction is a blanket term used by Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz which encompasses multiple different procedures to rejuvenate the look of dark circles, hollows under the eyes, or a combination of both.

Procedures such as lower blepharoplasty, fat grafting, dermal fillers, and under-eye chemical peels help restore volume and brightness to the lower eyelid. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz can help you decide which combination of treatments would be best for you based on the cause of your tear trough concerns.

Why Should I Receive Tear Trough Correction?

The hollows under your eyes are sure signs of stress on your face, whether that’s from lack of sleep, genetics, or the aging process. They can deepen with time, making your eyes look more pronounced the bigger the bags get under them. This can also happen as early as your 20s, making you appear exhausted or unhappy. If you have wrinkles, deep shadows, or bags under your eyes, tear trough correction can reverse this look by replacing lost facial tissue with your natural fat, dermal fillers, or a surgical alternative such as blepharoplasty.

The Tear Trough Correction Procedure

Because there are multiple different treatments used for complete tear trough correction, the procedure plan will differ from patient to patient. If you are undergoing a surgical blepharoplasty, you will be placed under IV sedation while Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz surgically removes any excess skin and tissues to create a smooth under-eye. Additionally, if you lack volume, fat transfer or fat repositioning may be recommended to restore a youthful appearance.

If you choose to undergo a non-surgical course of treatment such as dermal fillers, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the area 15-30 minutes prior to your procedure for ultimate comfort. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz with expert knowledge in the delicate eye area is key when receiving tear trough injections.

What to Expect During Tear Trough Correction

Depending on what route of treatment Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz recommends for you, a surgical or non-surgical plan may be pursued. If a surgical blepharoplasty with fat transfer or fat repositioning is recommended, you will be placed under IV sedation.

Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz performs all facial surgery under local and/or twilight sedation. Without the use of general anesthesia, bruising, swelling and recovery times are substantially minimized. Learn more about the benefits of Twilight Sedation during your facial surgery with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz. If a non-surgical plan is best for you, such as dermal fillers and/or under-eye chemical peels, you will be provided with a topical anesthetic to ease any discomfort during your procedure. Results are immediate, though there will likely be bruising and swelling which will keep the outcome from clearly showing for up to two weeks.

Tear Trough Correction FAQ

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.
