Dr. Devgan was interviewed in a recent Self Magazine article about trends in plastic surgery and injectables. As a board-certified plastic surgeon and expert in minimally invasive techniques, Dr. Devgan discussed tear trough augmentation, one of the most popular aspects of her practice.
Dark undereye circles are a common complaint for women in their 20s through 70s. Younger women may be able to chalk it up to a late night out. But as we age, the fat pads that support the lower eye dwindle in volume. This creates a sunken, hollow, and, in general, tired appearance. While in the past the only real solution for these “bags” was undereye creams and concealer, now more and more patients are turning to tear-trough augmentation. An injectable filler reduces hollowing under the eyes, creating less of a dark shadow and smoothing puffiness.
“In this era of people working longer hours, sleeping less, and spending more time juggling the demands of work and family, I’ve found a sharp uptick in the number of patients complaining of tired-looking eyes,” says Lara Devgan, M.D., M.P.H., a specialist in plastic and reconstructive surgery. “When skillfully performed, tear-trough augmentation can achieve excellent and transformative results in as little as five minutes, with no downtime, incisions, or pain.”
