When you don’t get enough sleep, it is common to have puffy bags under your eyes. However, there are many people that have permanent eye bags that never go away, even with plenty of rest. It is common to have sagging skin under the eyes as you get older, but perpetual eye bags can occur at any age. If you are tired of looking tired, blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, may be just what you need to refresh your appearance.

What Causes Under-the-Eye Bags?

The skin under the eyes is very thin and delicate. When the tissue underneath shrinks, the thin skin can droop, creating eye bags. When you are tired or dehydrated, the skin can sag due to loss of volume. Genetics also play a big role in whether you have eye bags from an early age. As you get older, the skin loses elasticity and volume in the cheeks and midface can dissipate. This can increase the appearance of eye bags, which typically becomes worse with age.

Eyelid Lift Surgery to Remove Eye Bags

Blepharoplasty on the lower eyelid can rejuvenate the eyes and make the entire face look more youthful and energetic. During the lower eyelid lift, a tiny incision is made to access the skin and fatty tissue under the eye – the incision can be made inside the eyelid or along the lash line to hide the scar. If needed, excess fat is removed from the eye bags and the skin is carefully tightened. This can create a smoother, firmer undereye area for a refreshed eye appearance.

In some patients, eye bags are increased in appearance due to lose of volume in the cheeks. A lower blepharoplasty may be combined with a cheek augmentation to smooth the transition between the under eye area and cheeks for a more youthful facial contour.

If your people are constantly telling you that you look tired, or the reflection in the mirror looks older than you feel, blepharoplasty may be right for you.
