Eyelid Surgery for Eye Bags – Medical Minute

Lower eyelid surgery could help you say “good-bye” to bags!

Losing your bags can be infuriating when you’re at the airport, but when they’re hanging beneath your eyes, it can be a welcome change!  One of the concerns I often hear about is dark circles or bags beneath the eyelids that don’t seem to go away, even with a good night’s sleep.

These types of dark circles are not caused by a darkening of the skin; rather they are caused by shadows.  This is the result of light shining (usually from above) and hitting the bulge caused by some excess fat producing a shadow beneath the bag.  So we simply need to reduce the bag by removing some fat (without a skin incision) – and the dark shadow goes away!

Watch the video above to learn more about under eye bags, dark circles, and how surgery may be the solution to getting rid of that tired look!
