As a 25-year-old woman, I know a blepharoplasty is an unusual request. But Ive got huge, ugly, puffy dark circles under my eyes that just wont go away! Is a blepharoplasty a good choice for treating my dark circles despite my young age?
Some young women have excess fat under the eyes that is hereditary, and on occasion, we do perform conservative blepharoplasty surgery on these patients. However, the dark coloration is another issue, which can either be due to shadowing from the prolapsed fat or from the blood vessels seen through the thin, translucent eyelid skin. In that case, you might benefit from Restylane injections under the eyes. Your best bet would be to have an evaluation by an experienced surgeon who could advise you appropriately.
