Dr. Dean Kane Q & A eyes Q. I have really dark circles due to genetics. I’m 20 years old. Do you think that lower eyelid surgery can help me get rid of my dark under eye circles? A. Pigmentation or dark circles under the eyelid may come from any combination of the following. 1.     Eyelid bags and laxity with shadowing 2.     Cheek laxity and shadowing 3.     Thin eyelid skin with a reflection of the underlying muscle 4.     Eyelid veins. 5.     A separation of the eyelid structures from the sagging cheek structures 6.    Pigmentation, laxity and fine lines of the skin   Many options are available depending on the problem above.   1.     Eyelid lift 2.     Cheek lift (with Contour Threads or short scar facelift) 3.     Injection of fillers, either into the skin or deep under the fat for volumizing using Restylane, Juvederm or fat 4.     Vein ablation 5.     Mid-face lift, a lift of all the structures of the cheek with a eyelid lift 6.     ZO Obagi Skin therapeutics and Peel or Laser to rejuvenate and tighten eyelid and facial skin.   Please consult with a Board Certified and well experienced Plastic Surgeon, for your best evaluation and recommendations.   I hope this has helped.
