Undereye Bags: Eye Surgery

Eyelid surgery can be combined with other facial surgeries such as face or neck lift or browlift.

The Basics

Undereye bags eye surgery, commonly known as lower blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing or removing puffiness and sagging beneath the eyes. It targets the excess fat, skin, and muscle that contribute to the appearance of under-eye bags, resulting in a smoother and more youthful look.

During lower blepharoplasty, the surgeon may make an incision along the lash line or inside the lower eyelid (transconjunctival approach). The chosen method depends on the patient’s anatomy and desired outcomes. The surgeon then removes or repositions the excess fat, trims excess skin if needed, and closes the incision with fine sutures.

Who is a good candidate?

This surgery is often sought by individuals who feel that under-eye bags give them a tired or aged appearance, even when they feel well-rested. It can significantly rejuvenate the eye area, making the person look more alert and refreshed.
