I Got Injectable Filler Under My Eyes to Combat the ‘Tired Mommy’ Look

Bryce Gruber, a 32 year old mother of three, noticed she looked exhausted and no amount of ultra-thick concealer could cover up the dark circles that had developed under her eyes. She consulted with board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Swift, to see if he had any nonsurgical option to combat her 'tired mommy' look.

Darkness under the eyes comes from aging of the face and is one of the early signs of aging. It often appears in late 20s or early 30s. Dr. Swift explains this is mainly due to the changing shape of the skull particularly the orbits or the bony socket. Initially the eye sockets are small but increase in size as we age. The edges of the eye socket become visible and the fat begins to stick out. And as we lose facial volume the cheeks begin to descend. As a result of these changes, there is a demarcation between the lower eyelids and the cheeks which appear as dark circles under the eyes.

Dr. Swift demonstrates on Bryce how to correct the hollowness or loss of volume using filler, ultimately reducing dark circles under the eyes.
