Which one should you choose? Fillers, Botox, Fat or Surgery?
Each one has its place when correcting the eyes, and it depends on your bone structure and setting of the eyes.
Dr Roberto Viel says, ‘I prefer this treatment as a non-invasive because the treatment is reversible in case the patient changes their mind. It’s a relatively quick procedure and with the right types of fillers results can last 8 months – 1 year.’ The fillers fix hollowing in the tear troughs and ideal for patients that have a depression like a tear trough the lower lids.
The corners of the eyes are not immune to ageing, because of the repetitive movement every time with squint or move muscle in the area. The wrinkles around the eyes, better known as crow’s-feet, can become deeply etched, and tend to make the eyes look more weary. A 10-minute botox treatment can freshen up the eyes with results lasting 3 – 6 months depending on the products used. Dr Viel recommends Dysport.
This gives longer lasting effects, almost permanent which makes the treatment cost effective in the long run. Your surgeon will need to be extremely good to ensure that he injects just enough to blend in the eye bags. The fat is taken from other parts of the body and reinjected into the face. This can also provide volume in the cheek bones providing more youthful contours.
Choose surgery (Blepharoplasty)
This is to correct loose skin, and eye bags. As we age, our eyelids get more droopy, and our eyebags grow larger as the muscles underneath cannot no longer hold in the protruding fat. This 1 hour surgery can refreshen up the eyes giving a more rejuvenated look without drastic change.
Your plastic surgeons, Drs Roberto and Maurizio Viel, will discuss the best approach to help you achieve your ideal look and goals.
