Will Tear Trough Implants Help My Deep Dark Circles Under My Eyes?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have had deep dark circles under my eyes since I was a baby. I am looking into tear trough implant surgery.

A :You are headed in the right direction to improve your lower eyelid fat herniation due to lac of infraorbital bony rim support. These would have to be custom infraorbital implants as they need to create a 3D augmentation of the underlying bone not just sit in front of the bone edge which is all that standard infraorbital rim implants. This would be combined with herniated fat removal through a lower blepharoplasty approach.
