Undereye bags are a common and frustrating problem. While creams or other treatments can stave off the signs of aging for a while, undereye bags continue to develop over time. An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty can treat your undereye bags to help you look refreshed and youthful. You can even combine a lower eyelid lift with other procedures to give you better results.

How Can I Treat Undereye Bags?

Most store beauty aisles offer dozens of undereye products. While these can help improve the appearance of the undereye area, no topical treatment can prevent age-related collagen loss. When the skin loses its natural collagen support network, it begins to sag. Lower blepharoplasty can remove this drooping skin and redistribute sagging fat pads to rejuvenate your undereye area. 

How Does a Lower Eyelid Lift Work?

Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stein will perform your procedure under twilight sedation. He will use a small incision hidden in a crease of the lower eyelid to tighten the skin and remove excess skin and fat. To remove the appearance of undereye bags, Dr. Stein removes or repositions fat pads under the eye. These fat pads can sink over time, leaving hollow areas and undereye bags. Restoring them to their more youthful position corrects hollows and bags to leave the undereye area smooth and even.

What is Recovery Like From an Eyelid Lift?

You may have blurry or double vision for a day or two after surgery. You will receive detailed aftercare instructions, including any eye drops or other medications you may need to use. Most people can return to work within a week. Dr. Stein will discuss your typical work tasks and determine whether you need more time to heal. Swelling can last for several weeks, and as it resolves, you can enjoy your results. 

What Other Procedures Can I Have With an Eyelid Lift?

If you have a lower blepharoplasty to treat your undereye bags, you may also consider several other procedures that Dr. Stein often performs in combination with it. An upper and lower blepharoplasty together provides a lifted, bright, alert-looking eye area. A brow lift can raise sagging brows, smooth the forehead, and reposition drooping eyebrows to give you a complete upper face restoration. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Lower Eyelid Lift?

If you have undereye bags or sagging skin, you may be a good candidate for a lower eyelid lift. Most people with no serious health problems can have this procedure. If you are considering a facelift or brow lift and have concerns about your undereye area, this offers a perfect opportunity to add a lower eye lift to your procedure.

“I had the drooping eyelids that come along with the aging process and it made me self conscious to the point I stopped wearing eye shadows so I wouldn’t draw attention to my eyes. I did my research, visited two different surgeons and decided on Stein Plastic Surgery. The staff is wonderful and Dr. Stein amazing. I am beyond thrilled with my results. Every step of the way Dr. Stein made sure to let me know exactly what to expect which elevates concerns. I had my eye lids done along with a brow lift and I am so thrilled with the results. Thank you for your professionalism and the fantastic work you do!”
