WEST ORANGE, New Jersey — Often surgeons rarely recommend surgery for patients with lower eyelid “bags”, since surgical removal (lower blepharoplasty) may result in a hollow, “operated” appearance. And, according to Dr. Eric Joseph of West Orange, NJ, surgery doesn’t address the reason they occur. Dr. Joseph feels the cause of lower eyelid puffiness is due to an age-related loss of cheek fat that, in youth, blends the lid bulge into the cheek bulge. This loss of fat results in a groove between the cheek and lower eyelid, and he feels that filling in the groove eliminates the “bag” and leads to a natural, “un-operated”, youthful eyelid.

As an alternative, Dr. Joseph uses hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm®, or Restylane® to correct lower eyelid grooves if patients want temporary results that last between six and twelve months. After appropriate consultation and informed consent, he uses Silikon-1000® (purified polydimethyl siloxane, Alcon Labs.,Ft. Worth Tx.) which gives permanent correction to lower eyelid grooves and natural restoration of a youthful lower lid appearance. Procedures are performed painlessly with topical anesthetic, and normal activities are resumed immediately with no downtime.

“This is pioneering technology that has had very successful results,” according to Dr. Joseph who has been using Silikon-1000®, for facial rejuvenation, wrinkle reduction, and volume replacement for over eight years with consistently beautiful, natural, permanent results.
