I am a 42-year-old mom of three. I don’t feel old, yet I feel like I constantly look exhausted. Does blepharoplasty help reduce darkness under the eyes?
Darkness under your eyes is often a multi factorial issue. It may be caused by hyperpigmentation of the skin, shadow off the fat pads of you lower lids if they protrude some, and loss of soft tissue volume below the eyes that contributes to a deep tear trough. A lower lid blepharoplasty in which some of the fat of the lower lids is moved to fill in the tear trough may help some. Laser resurfacing to tighten the lower lid skin may help some. Treating your skin with hydroquinone to lighten the skin or the Obagi Nu Derm system may also help. Check out theses photos on our website
