Leave your ‘bags’ at the door!

Some patients experience puffy bulging lower lids due to excess fat tissue. If fat tissue is bulging through the lower lids, it can lead to a tired, aged appearance.  This is often confused for fluid. It isn’t. This bulge consists of fat tissue and stretched muscle. With fat pad removal, it’s possible to lighten the appearance of the lower lids to restore a youthful appearance in the eye area. 

Eye bag surgery works by removing the under eye fat and tightening the muscles & excess skin can have a dramatic effect on the overall aesthetic of your face. You will appear less tired with a fresh look, by addressing the eye bags (fat pockets). With the sagging eyelids being toned and eye bags removed, your eyes can look many years younger.
