The tear trough is a well-defined anatomical structure located below the lower eyelid and is distinct from the lid cheek junction. The tear trough extends outwards from the medial canthal measurement and stops at the midpupillary line. Deepening of the tear trough with age results in visible deep under eye hollows.
This is due to three main reasons including bulging of the fat above the tear trough, descent of fat inferior to the tear trough and bone resorption.
