Abstract

PURPOSE: "Selfie" photography is increasing among teenagers, accentuates congenital anomalies, and impacts self-confidence. Tear trough deformity is most commonly due to aging, but also occurs as a congenital anomaly and can be a major source of insecurity and embarrassment.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to show the efficacy and safety of hyaluronic acid gel filler in a teenage patient with congenital tear trough deformity.

MATERIAL AND METHOD: We describe the case of a teenager who underwent hyaluronic acid gel filling to the tear trough deformity at age 14 years. Prospective follow up was assessed for 5 years.

RESULTS: The patient improved clinical appearance and self confidence. Her satisfaction level was high, and no complication occurred during entire follow up.

CONCLUSION: In this case, hyaluronic gel acid filler was safe and effective for augmentation of congenital tear trough. The patient was satisfied and experienced increased self-esteem.
