Prominent of puffy lower eyelids are commonly referred to as “Eyelid Bags.” Surgery to correct eyelid bags is called lower eyelid blepharoplasty, blepharoplasty, eyelid bag surgery or simply an eyelid or lid lift. The key to successful eyelid bag surgery is to create a natural appearance without the surgical look.
Many different surgeons can perform eyelid bag surgery (eyelid lifts). It is imperative to see an eye trained plastic surgeon or ophthalmic plastic surgeon for this surgery. An ophthalmic plastic surgeon (oculoplastic surgeon, eye plastic surgeon) is a surgeon specifically trained to do eyelid bag surgery (eyelid lifts). The specifics and credentials of eye plastic surgeons can be found at the web site http://asoprs.org. This is the sight for ASOPRS (American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery). Please do your homework before selecting a surgeon for your eyelid lift surgery
Do not have surgery by a non-specialist. It is harder to repair problems than to do surgery right the first time.
