In brief: Tear trough trouble
Correction of the tear trough can be accomplished with fillers (injectable), fat grafts, fat flaps, implants, or mid face lift.

In brief: Yes
It depends on how bad the tear trough deformity is.
Some mild to moderately deep tear troughs can be corrected with injection of hyaluronic acid (restylane/juvederm). Fat grafting and/or a mid-face lift will help to correct severe tear trough deformities.

In brief: Several options
Good morning! Tear trough deformities are usually due to a lack of volume in the deep tissues of the midface.
This can be alleviated by nonsurgical injections of filling agents in a doctors office, or surgical intervention including lifting of the midface soft tissue structures to fill the area. Be sure you are seeing a surgeon or injector well versed in these procedures.

Restoring volume to the mid face in addition to the lower lid, with or without lower lid blepharoplasty can diminish the appearance of the tear trough.

In brief: Yes
If the tear trough deformity is small, using fillers like juvederm or radiess can improve the appearance.
Also fat stem cell grafting in the area can improve the tear trough deformity for many years. For more pronounced deformity a mid face lift is done with fat stem cell injection.

A midface lift with or without fat grafting can be a useful procedure to correct a tear trough deformity.
Fat grats are obtain by performing liposuction on areas such as the flank.
