There is now a faster and safer procedure that claims to make a person look young by giving an eye lift. Developed by Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Haideh Hirmand, this technique is called the "tear trough" procedure. The best thing about this procedure is that people who are not satisfied can opt to have an antidote, an enzyme, injected to selectively and immediately melt the hyaluronic acid away.

Highlights of the "tear trough" procedure
a. This is a non-invasive procedure.
b. This procedure involves the use of fillers, massage and a blunt cannula instead of a needle to plump up the under-eye area.
c. Small droplets of Restylane are placed very deep along the tear trough and around the eye rim and massaged and sculpted into place.
d. The Restylane is injected with blunt needles.
e. The sculpting is planned and mapped based on individual pattern of volume loss not only around the eyes by also in the cheeks and midface.
f. It is ideal for people with thicker skin and minimum to moderate indentation.
g. It can be opted for by people who had earlier undergone surgical procedures.
h. It involves the use of local anesthesia.
i. The entire procedure takes just half an hour.
j. The results last for more than a year.
k. It is a precise and versatile procedure.
l. It is safe and results are instant.

Disadvantage
It might cause slight swelling and bruising for several days after the procedure.
