Could I be a Restylane Candidate?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A.shutterstock_78831334-200x300

Q. I am so over these eye bags. I’m only 30, but I feel 100! Help! Should I get Restylane fillers, or should I go with a lower blepharoplasty? Thanks. A. Thanks for sharing your photos. ​Yes, Restylane is an alternative to mask the bags by elevating the folds. It takes special skills so choose your injector wisely. ​It would also be important to have your thyroid hormone levels checked and a proper evaluation of your eyes, lids and boney structure. Eyelid surgery is a possibility but in your photos, I detect some eye bulging and asymmetry. This may indicate an overactive thyroid gland or other anatomic concerns regarding your options. ​ ​Consult with a well experienced and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, OculoPlastic Surgeon and  / or Facial ENT Surgeon who perform eyelid surgery regularly. ​ ​I hope this is helpful. All the best!
