There are a variety of treatments to help rejuvenate the lower lids. ⁣

First and foremost, the eyes and upper/middle face are examined in terms of skin quality, bone structure, volume loss, and fat descent/deflation. ⁣

Typically, the upper lids are always paired with the brows as they complement each other, and treating one may leave the other deficient. ⁣

The lower lids must be treated as part of the midface. I typically examine the relation of the globe to the bony orbit and facial width vs projection. ⁣

Most opt for a blending of the lid-cheek junction. This can be done with a single HA filler or sandwiching two different fillers with different lift capacities. ⁣

In addition, some benefit from surgical repositioning of fat and tightening of the lower lid. Others may benefit from energy-based skin tightening modalities in conjunction with neuromodulators or fillers. ⁣

See your board-certified plastic surgeon for a treatment plan that will benefit you and your lifestyle!
