Recently, social media influencer Uorfi Javed opted for eye fillers to address dark circles and hollowness under her eyes. However, she was disappointed when discomfort and slight unevenness surfaced a few weeks later, leading to regret over her decision. Eye fillers generally refer to dermal fillers that are used to enhance the appearance of the area around the eyes. Dermal fillers are injectable substances that are commonly used for cosmetic purposes to add volume, reduce wrinkles, and rejuvenate the skin.
Eye fillers have become a popular option for those seeking to enhance their appearance without the invasiveness of surgery. Their quick results and temporary effects attract many individuals, but potential risks and suitability concerns should not be overlooked too. If the filler is not administered correctly or is done by an inexperienced practitioner, it can lead to uneven results, lumpiness, or even cause damage to the surrounding tissues. So it is very crucial to choose a reputable and experienced practitioner to minimize risks, says Dr. Anand K, Chief Consultant - Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, SPARSH Hospital, Bangalore.
Why choosing a reputed doctor is crucial when getting eye fillers?
#Safety: Reputed doctors have extensive knowledge and experience in performing filler injections safely. They are well-versed in the anatomy of the face, including the delicate areas around the eyes. This reduces the risk of complications and ensures that the procedure is performed with utmost care.
#Thorough Assessment: A skilled doctor will conduct a thorough assessment of your specific concerns and facial structure before recommending any treatment. They will determine if eye fillers are the appropriate solution for your needs or if any treatments would be more suitable.
#High-Quality Products: Reputed doctors typically use high-quality, FDA-approved fillers. These products are tested and proven to be safe and effective for cosmetic purposes. Using subpar or counterfeit fillers can lead to undesirable results and potential health risks.
#Customization: Every patient's facial anatomy and needs are unique. A reputable doctor will tailor the treatment to your specific requirements, ensuring natural-looking results that enhance your features rather than giving an unnatural appearance.
#Minimizing Risks: While eye fillers are generally considered safe when administered by a qualified professional, there are inherent risks associated with any medical procedure. An experienced doctor can minimize these risks by following proper injection techniques and aftercare instructions.
#Patient Satisfaction: Experienced doctors have a track record of satisfied patients. You can often find reviews, testimonials, or before-and-after pictures of their previous work, giving you better clarity of the results that can be expected
#Correcting Complications: In the rare event that complications arise, experienced doctors are better equipped to handle and correct any issues effectively. They have the expertise to manage adverse reactions or complications that may occur after the procedure.
Prior to considering eye fillers, individuals should conduct thorough research, consult with qualified professionals, and carefully weigh the benefits against the associated risks to make informed decisions about their aesthetic journey adds Dr. Anand.
