Would under eye filler such as Restylane help solve my problem?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A shutterstock_7859413Q. I am a 31 year old female, In the last 2-3 years I’ve observed the under eye area become hollow and baggy looking. I would be interested in a non-surgical procedure and one that would yield the most favorable results. I am also concerned about the darkening of the area and not sure what would improve that. I am of Italian and Romanian decent, olive skin tones. A.  It appears that a descent in the soft-tissues and fat compartments of the cheek along with a natural laxity in the septum orbitale, the membrane which maintains the fat behind the eye are creating the hollowing and fat bags seen symmetrically under your eyes. ​ ​Properly performed deep facial fillers may help “fill” and project the cheek and possibly even camouflage the eye-bag / cheek fold but a much more permanent and youthful appearing solution may be lower eyelid blepharoplasty with a mid-face lift. ​ ​Whether you decide in a minimally invasive (filler) approach or a surgical approach, this are very advanced techniques and requires a true artistic and talented, well experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or ENT Facial surgeon. Please obtain proper evaluation to include eyelid function and tightness. ​ ​The darkening under your eyes may be due to shadowing or pigmentation. Proper fill with your tissues (mid-face lift) or fillers and the use of a ZO Obagi Skin Health regimen to control pigmentation will help. ​ ​I wish you the very best with this!
