Tear trough is the area below your eye where dark circles can appear. Dark circles are caused by hollowing of the tear trough which results in shadows. Dark shadows in this area can make you look tired and aged.

Thin lips due to genetics or age due to loss of collagen can be enhanced
Smokers lines above the lips can be reduced or softened
A voluminous pout can be achieved with a dermal lip treatment
A natural lip line can be achieved so less lip pencil is needed

  • The Procedure
  • Aftercare

Tear Trough Filler Treatment

Topical anaesthetic will be applied to the area prior to treatment. Once numb, the area will be cleansed and your doctor, nurse or surgeon may mark up the area. Dermal filler is then injected into the cheek area; in some cases a small cannula may be used. Once complete, the area will be massaged to ensure a smooth result.

Tear Trough Filler is an advanced Dermal Filler technique and as such should only be carried out by highly experienced medical practitioners.

We are proud to be working closely with the Independent Health Advisory Service (IHAS), and to have all of our clinics registered with Treatments You Can Trust.

After Your Tear Trough Treatment

You will notice an immediate result however redness, bruising and swelling may appear shortly after the treatment which can take a day or two to clear up.

In order to maintain your results from dermal cheek filler, you will need to plan for additional top up treatments. If you would like to come and see us for a consultation to discuss your options click here.

There is no downtime associated with tear trough filler treatment. You may experience some bruising and/or swelling post-treatment for 1-2 days.

We do advise that sleep on your back for the first 2-3 nights post treatment. Avoid strenuous exercise for 4-6 hours, avoid touching your face for 6 hours including applying make-up, minimise your sun exposure and protect yourself with SPF.

  • What is tear trough filler?

    The tear trough is the area between the lower eyelid and upper lid. As we age, this area can appear deeper and more shadowed giving patients what’s known as ‘dark circles’. This can cause patients to look tired less vibrant. Tear trough filler is a specialised dermal filler technique aimed at filling the hollow depression underneath the eye that causes dark circles to appear. Dermal filler will replace lost volume into the area and help to retain and improve skin hydration in the treated area too.

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    I had a breast reduction performed by Mr Navid Jallali. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I have less backache and less neck ache. The size and shape are absolutely fabulous.The clinic was amazing. The nursing staff in the hospital were superb. I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic and Mr Jalalli to anyone wanting a breast reduction.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
