Lower lids can suffer from excess fat, dark circles, or sometimes be hollow. Surgery removes or moves the fat and smooths the skin. Several different techniques may be used to help a person appear less tired and more refreshed.

The Basics

Undereye bags eye surgery, also known as lower blepharoplasty, is a procedure designed to remove or reduce the appearance of puffiness and sagging beneath the eyes. This type of surgery typically involves the removal or repositioning of excess fat and skin that contribute to the formation of under-eye bags. The goal is to create a smoother and more youthful appearance by eliminating the swollen, puffy look that can make a person appear tired or older than they are. By carefully sculpting the lower eyelids, this surgery can significantly rejuvenate the eye area, leading to a refreshed and more alert appearance.

Who is a good candidate?

Ideal candidates for lower blepharoplasty are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and seek to improve the appearance of under-eye bags. While the surgery can produce lasting results, it’s important to follow post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal outcome. Potential risks and complications should be discussed with a qualified plastic surgeon or ophthalmologist before proceeding with the surgery.
