What Is Eye Bag Removal Surgery?

Eye bag removal is a cosmetic surgery procedure which is used for getting rid of any lose skin, excessive fat, or wrinkles in the lower eye area.

 

Eye bags usually form due to the accumulation of excess fat under one’s eyes. They may also form when the support of skin and the orbital septum gets weakened. Eye bags are a common cosmetic issue which makes an individual look older, tired, and more fatigued. Aging is one inevitable and major cause of eye bags formation, but many individuals also get them due to genetic reasons. Nevertheless, they can be reversed effectively with eye bag surgery.

Who Needs Eye Bag Removal Surgery?

Under eye fat removal is recommended for individuals with:
  • Bulging under-eye bags .
  • Sagging and wrinkled skin under the eye .
  • Tear trough depression. 
  • Dark circles that are visible even when covered in makeup. 

Types of Eye Bag Surgery

There are two common eye bag surgery techniques used for under eye fat removal. These include:

1. Transconjunctival Eye Bag Removal

While performing eye bag removal, the surgeon removes fat tissue through the inner part of lower eyelids. This procedure does not leave any visible scars on the patient’s face. 

2. Incisional Eye Bag Removal

In this eye bag surgery method, an incision is hidden along the lower lash line to remove excess fat tissue and skin. This results in a more even, less wrinkled and tauter appearance on the under-eye area.
