Double board-certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, Gregory D. Lewen, M.D., offers non-surgical rejuvenation for men and women in Miami, Aventura, and the surrounding areas of Florida. Dr. Lewen is one of a select few plastic surgeons who specializes in plastic surgery of the eyes, and our FAQs on dermal fillers for under-eye procedures answer the most common questions.

How Are Face Fillers Used in the Under-Eye Area?

Dr. Lewen uses facial fillers to add volume, soften wrinkles, and address other cosmetic concerns around the eyes. A qualified practitioner who has an extensive understanding of the eye structures, including the blood vessels, nerves and delicate skin around the eyes, can achieve incredible results with products such as Botox®, Sculptra®, Radiesse® and Belotero Balance®. Although many practitioners use these same products, the results are highly dependent upon the expertise of the person who is performing the injections. Expertise matters not only for results, but also for avoiding complications related to facial fillers that are used under the eyes.

For patients who are considering procedures that involve facial fillers in the eye area, Dr. Lewen recommends a review of our dermal fillers for under eye FAQ.

  • "I just saw Dr. Lewen July 6, 2018. His bedside manner is excellent. He explains all procedures in detail. I was extremely happy with the outcome and I will be going back. He and his staff are super professional and make you feel comfortable. The best part, is that he takes you at your appointment time, no 2 hour waiting ????"

What Are the Possible Complications from Under Eye Facial Fillers?

Complications from facial fillers and injectable products that are used in the eye area depend upon the type of product that is being used.

  • Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® injections may cause droopy eyelid (ptosis) and visual disturbances, such as double vision
  • Juvéderm® and other types of facial fillers that contain hyaluronic acid may cause swelling, infections, and vein disorders

How Do I Minimize the Risk of Complications from Under Eye Facial Fillers?

An oculofacial plastic surgeon is uniquely qualified to perform under-eye procedures with facial fillers due to the extensive understanding of facial anatomy. In addition to education, this type of plastic surgeon has experience with both surgical and non-surgical methods for improving concerns in the under-eye area.
