I am 38 and ever since I had my second child (2 yrs ago), I lost volume in my cheeks but gained bags under my eyes!

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A shutterstock_80002510 Q. I’d prefer non-surgical options if possible. My physician has said that fillers won’t help me but I would like a second opinion. Would Restylane be an option? What other options do I have? A. So sorry about you post-pregnancy changes; I hope I can help you rejuvenate! Most physicians today would recommend the use of fillers under the eyelids. This works well for temporary changes in the skillful hands of a talented injector. This is an advanced injector technique and may camouflage the bags and fill the descended fat compartments. There are many things to consider in your rejuvenation including the loss of elasticity of the skin, the loss of septal tightness over the eyelid bag, creases, lines and folds. Please consider:
  • Obagi ZO Skin Health care to reverse the aging changes of skin texture, elasticity and unevenness of color.
  • ThermiSMOOTH, the newest tool for external skin tightening using ThermiRF radio-wave energy.
  • Fillers in the deeper compartments.
  • If you are a good candidate, a combined blepharoplasty and mid-face lift is the most rejuvenating surgical procedure for this area.
As with any decision, Consult with the most talented and skilled, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to review your options. I trust this is helpful. All the best!   This information is not meant as medical advice. It is provided solely for education.
