Sunken Eyes Syndrome Beverly Hills, CA
woman's face prepared for plastic surgery

Having sunken eyes makes the area around them look dark and hollow. This condition has many causes and can be treated by our Beverly Hills oculoplastic surgeon in different ways.

Causes of Sunken Eyes

Sunken eyes are a cosmetic issue and can be caused by the following:

Getting Older – As you age, the skin on your face loses fat and becomes thinner and more translucent. Bone density is also lost throughout the face, including around the eyes, resulting in a hollowing look.

Losing A Lot of Weight – Dramatic weight loss removes a lot of fat throughout the body, including the face and around the eyes. This also results in the blood vessels surrounding your eyes being more visible and transparent.

Your Family Genetics – If some of your family members have sunken eyes then it’s likely caused by your genetic DNA.

Lack of Sleep – Frequently experiencing a lack of high-quality sleep can affect the appearance of your eyes and make them look sunken in.

Being Dehydrated – Lacking proper hydration can lead to sunken eyes.

Smoking – Smoking degrades collagen and causes your skin to lose elasticity which can give you the appearance of sunken eyes.

How To Treat Sunken Eyes

Some causes of sunken eyes can be easily addressed. For example, you can get your sleeping pattern under control, stay hydrated, or quit smoking.

For causes that are out of your control, you should consult a doctor. Dermal fillers can be injected around the eye to improve the appearance of sunken eyes. For more permanent results cosmetic surgeries like brow-lifts, lower eyelid surgery, and face-lifts can be done.

To see what options are best for you call Dr. Kami Parsa’s office in Beverly Hills today to schedule a consultation.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
