Put An End To Hollow Eyes

April 29, 2014

There is help for those who may be genetically predisposed to hollow eyes or have lost soft tissue and bone density, which can make the eyes appear sunken or hollow.


Filler: Restylane is Dr. Olson’s preferred filler for the under-eye, or “tear trough”. Hyaluronic acid is effective in filling deficient areas under the eyes when it is injected deep into the tissue. Dr. Olson is an orbital specialist with extensive knowledge and experience in periorbital and eyelid reconstruction and rejuvenation. She has published about filling the “tear trough” under the eyes with Restylane.


Skin Care: Applying products with vitamin C can reduce the dark circles that sometimes accompany eye hollowing. Retinol is a good ingredient to help the fragile skin become stronger, and humectants will add a bit of a plumping effect under the eyes. If you find that you have dark circles too, a prescription of hydroquinone can help to lighten up under-eye shadows. 


Surgical: Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is used to remove or reposition the fat bulges and loose skin of the bottom eyelids. Many factors, including heredity, smoking and sun damage accelerate these changes. You may appear tired, sad, and older than you feel. Lower eyelid surgery will correct this, leaving you with a more youthful contour and alert appearance. 


Doctor Olson has a specialized 3 dimensional approach to the lower eyelid surgery. She recontours the fat through the back side of the eyelid (transconjunctival approach). The eyelid is horizontally supported so that the eyeshape remains a youthful almond shape into older age. Sagging, retraction and round eye is prevented. The skin externally is redraped to improve the wrinkled texture with either surgery or laser. It is important to maintain the eyelid function to protect the eye and restore a normal position and shape to the eyes. Doctor Olson specializes in the correction of lid retraction caused by previous surgery and performs corrective surgery for patients who are unhappy with previous blepharoplasty from older and more aggressive techniques.


Eyelid surgery may be performed at any age and all times of the year in the office based setting. 99 percent of surgeons are NOT eye specialists – ASOPRS surgeons are extensively trained and experienced oculofacial surgeons.
