Tear Trough Injections

The under eye area may have a hollowed look due to genetics, volume loss due to aging, or from environmental factors such as excessive sun exposure and smoking cigarettes. Hollowness can affect just the small area directly under the eyes called tear troughs, or the whole area under the eyes continuing to the sides of the eyes and can even lead to the appearance of dark circles.

Dermal filler injections to improve the area under the eyes is a commonly sought treatment. Its popularity is due to eye bags and tear troughs being one of the most common aesthetic issues since it is related to genetics. Both women and men may find that eye bags, tear troughs and dark circles make them look more tired, weary, and older than they actually are.

Best Candidates

Women and men who are unhappy with the hollowing under their eyes.

After going to three other Plastic Surgeons ( for botox™ & fillers ) I finally found the right one. Her staff as well as Dr Kitto are absolutely amazing.

The Procedure

Dr. Kitto specifically uses soft and thin dermal fillers for injections under the eyes in order to give a natural look and refreshed look. In select patients who have noticed hollowing not only in the area under the eyes but the entire middle face Dr. Kitto will combine it with cheek fillers and temple fillers in order to restore facial harmony. In patients who are also unhappy with lines at the out corner of their eyes known as “crow’s feet” Dr. Kitto will inject Botox™.

Results are immediately visible and may be temporary or permanent depending on the type of filler used.


There is minimal to no downtime after tear trough injections. Some patients may experience mild swelling and short-term bruising.

Dr. Kitto was AMAZING! Best Plastic Surgeon appointment I’ve ever had. She was so thorough and gentle and she explained everything very in detail! And I even got a great outcome! I love my lips and they look amazing 😍
