What Can I Do About the Bags Under My Eyes?

Do you have noticeable bags under your eyes that are giving you a constant tired appearance? This is a common issue caused by the presence of excess fat under the lower eyelids. The presence of fat is normal around the eyes and helps to protect the eyes. However, as we age, the tissues in the eye socket become weaker, allowing the fat to bulge outwards and form bags under the eyes.

This issue can be corrected by undergoing a lower-eyelid blepharoplasty. The procedure will remove or reposition the excess fat under your eyes through a small incision made along the inside of the eyelid. This approach is known as a transconjunctival incision and provides the most natural-looking results, because any post-surgical marks will not be visible.
