Non-Surgical Treatment for TED
Non-Surgical Treatment of Thyroid Eye Disease
As part of a complete analysis, at the International Orbital Institute, Dr. Raymond Douglas may consider non-surgical interventions for thyroid eye disease. Through his years of practice, he has found that non-surgical dermal filler injections can provide patients with wonderful results.
As always, Dr. Douglas’ goal is to provide his patients with functional improvement as well as a natural appearance. In some patients, fillers can either be a great alternative to surgical intervention or a nice compliment to surgery. During a consultation with thyroid eye disease expert, Dr. Douglas, he will determine if you are a candidate for non-surgical treatments to improve your appearance. The most common reasons Dr. Douglas will use a filler treatment for thyroid eye disease patients is to add volume to the mid-face or upper eyelid and brow area.
Using a cannula, Dr. Douglas can add filler to the mid-face (cheeks) to lift the cheeks and create a smoother transition from the under eye to the cheek. Adding this volume creates a very beautiful and natural appearance for patients.
When a patient presents with hollow upper eyelids and prominent eyes, filler injections to the upper eyelid and brow area can make a dramatic difference in their appearance. Dr. Douglas will strategically place filler in this area to create a more natural eyelid appearance.
Below you can see an example of a patient who underwent a non-surgical approach with dermal fillers to augment the cheek-lower eyelid junction. This treatment dramatically improved her appearance.
With fillers, Dr. Douglas’ goal is generally to elevate the cheek and to remove the orbitomalar ligament, as you can see in the patient below. This treatment creates a much more aesthetically functional and pleasing appearance.
