Lower Blepharoplasty (Lower Eyelid Bags)

You may look much older at a young age with bags and dark circles under your eyes. Facial deflation, as a natural part of aging, and loss of skin elasticity contributes the appearance bags and dark circles.

There are various nonsurgical and surgical treatment options for lower eyelid bags and dark circles and lower eyelid wrinkles, depending on the variables involved in each individual. Each person needs an individualized treatment plan.

A nonsurgical treatment is to fill the relative hollowness below the “fullness” with either facial filler or fat, thereby camouflaging the “bags.” Younger patients may not have a fatty prominence causing the appearance of bags; rather have congenital hollowness below the eyelids (tear troughs) and are ideal for injectable fillers such as Belotero or Restylane.
