Question

I am still very young, only 16, but I do have fine lines under my eyes which make me insecure.

My question is, do you think that cosmetic surgery would be a good option to remove wrinkles under my eyes when I get older?

My second question is that I had a cyst under my jaw line and I also had surgery but it still hasn't disappeared. Would cosmetic surgery remove the cyst completly or do I have to go through another surgery in hospital?

Answer

At the age of 16, the wrinkles under the eyes are more likely related to squinting and contracting the muscles of the lower eyelid. You can try to relax and reduce this movement, and maybe later on you can look at using botulinum toxin to reduce the muscle contractions.

In addition, it is probably a good habit to use sunblock when you are outdoors, in particular if you have very fair skin.

With regards to the cyst, it may require repeat surgery, but it is important to appreciate whether you are dealing with a recurrence or just the scar there is still lumpy and needs some help to settle down
