One of the most requested cosmetic eyelid procedures is eye bag surgery. As we age, the membrane that holds the fat back weakens and the fat comes forward, creating the appearance of those unwanted eye bags.
Eye bag surgery, or cosmetic lower lid blepharoplasty, is a very specialized procedure which should ONLY be performed by an experienced eyelid surgeon, like Dr. Massry. Although it is a commonly performed procedure, complications from an inexperienced surgeon can be devastating. Seeing an oculoplastic surgeon, who is a specialist in eyelid surgery, helps eliminate surgical complications.
Before & After Eye Bag Surgery
How is Eye Bag Surgery Performed?
When performing lower blepharoplasty, Dr. Massry’s goal is to remove the eyelid bag and getting rid of the dark circles under the eyes. Dark under eye circles are also referred to as “periorbital or eyelid hollows.” Rather than removing all of the precious eyelid fat during a lower blepharoplasty, Dr. Massry will instead reposition some of the excess fat to the hollows of the eyes to create a smooth contour and fill in the hollow under eyes. This technique results in a refreshed and youthful appearance.
