Dark circles under your eyes can make you look older than you actually are. These circles are often the result of a condition called tear trough deformity, which occurs when skin and fat in the lower eyelid creates a shadow around your eye. Over time, the condition generally worsens, resulting in a worn, haggard appearance.
Grossman Plastic Surgery offers tear trough implants to correct this condition, eliminating the dark circles around your eyes once and for all. To learn about this and other facial implant procedures, please call (866) 221-9665 to arrange a consultation.
Am I a Candidate for Tear Trough Implants?
Ideal candidates for tear trough implants are in good general health and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of the surgery. If you prefer a non-surgical solution for your condition, you may want to consider dermal filler treatments as an alternative to tear trough implants. However, fillers will not provide you with the long lasting results achieved with tear trough implants.
Our Denver plastic surgeons often recommend a lower blepharoplasty in conjunction with your tear trough implants for enhanced results.
Tear Trough Implant Procedure
Tear trough implants are made from a soft silicone material. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro will insert your implants through a tiny incision, placing them over the bone mass under the eyelid.
Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro prefer to use the transconjunctival method, which makes a incision inside the eyelid. This advanced technique does not leave a visible scar since there is no incision on the outside of the eyelid. The transconjunctival technique also results in quicker healing time and does not alter the shape of the eyelid.
You will receive detailed follow-up care instructions from Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper healing.
While tear trough implants are not a common procedure, it takes considerable surgical skill to properly execute. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro have performed this plastic surgery many times and have consistently achieved exceptional results. By using the transconjunctival method, they eliminate many of the complications traditionally associated with less advanced techniques.
