This procedure is the trifecta for the under-eye area in candidates with accompanying volume loss. The procedure removes the bag bulge, resurfaces and tightens loose, crepey skin tissue, and replenishes hollowing with customized injections. The Ultimate Under-Eye Filter brings all the benefits of the Under-Eye Filter treatment while adding volume to the surrounding areas that may have lost their youthful contouring.

What Procedures Are Included in the Ultimate Under-Eye Filter?

Lower Blepharoplasty

Under-eye bags and dark circles can make the face look tired and depleted. Lower blepharoplasty surgically removes excess fat and skin in the under-eye area and tightens the area by repositioning the delicate tissues in such a way that softens the contouring and restores balance and symmetry to the face. The effect is a more awake and vibrant complexion.

Skin Rejuvenation

Thoughtful skin rejuvenation is accomplished by addressing  the epidermis (external layer) and dermis (internal layer). Skin texture is made smoother with a chemical or laser peel. Skin elasticity and suppleness are refreshed with rejuvenating radiofrequency energy.

Volumizing Injections

The human body contains hyaluronic acid that is responsible for making the skin look hydrated and plump. As the body ages, the depletion of hyaluronic acid can cause a sunken or drooping appearance that decreases the vibrancy of the face. The beauty of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is that they add contour by restoring lost volume. The injections are customized to each individual’s face, creating a natural brilliance that can take years off of the complexion. Autologous (your own) fat grafting is also an option for replenishing volume.

What Can I Expect from the Procedure?

Dr. Cox will make sure you are comfortable by combining local anesthesia with oral or IV sedation. General anesthesia may also be used, in some cases. Lower blepharoplasty is performed with a hidden incision inside the lower lid. The muscle is then tightened, restoring the natural position of the lower lid by counteracting the drooping that has taken place due to the aging process. Trimming additional eyelid skin may be required for appropriate skin tightening of the lower lid. Then, total skin rejuvenation is accomplished with a combination of exfoliation (chemical or laser peel) and rejuvenating radiofrequency energy. If there is added hollowing of the lower lid and cheek, dermal fillers or autologous fat grafting is injected to restore the natural contouring.

What Is the Recovery Process?

After the Ultimate Under-Eye Filter procedure, your skin will be tender, and you may notice some bruising, swelling, and redness for the first few weeks. Dr. Cox will give you a thorough recovery plan that will include icing and applying an ointment, in order to aid the healing process.

As long as you protect your skin with sunscreen, avoid strenuous exercise, keep your head elevated while sleeping, and focus as much as possible on resting, you will see beautiful results, as the treated area heals.
