Tear Trough Implant

Tear trough implant surgery is a type of facial plastic surgery that involves the placement of implants in the tear trough to treat the hollow region of the lower eyelid at the top of the cheek. This counteracts the natural volume loss associated with aging and improves overall facial balance and symmetry. This procedure is typically performed for cosmetic reasons to create a smoother “Eyelid-Cheek Continuum” as opposed to a cheek implant which is mostly done to enhance facial contour and create a more defined cheek. The intention of this procedure is not to change your appearance, but rather to create a more well-rested, refreshed look to the eyelids. If there is also prolapsed or excess lower eyelid fat in addition to a tear trough volume deficiency, tear trough implant is often combined with lower blepharoplasty.

Benefits of Tear Trough Implant Surgery:

It is important to keep in mind that individual results may vary and that it’s always best to consult with a qualified Oculofacial plastic surgeon to determine if tear trough surgery is the best option for your specific needs and medical history. A qualified surgeon will be able to evaluate your anatomy, skin thickness, and facial shape to determine the best implant size, shape, and placement for you.
