BAGS & DARK CIRCLES

Lower blepharoplasty is a common procedure used for treating bags and dark circles. It is usually performed using local anesthesia and sedation. To improve the lower eyelid bags, incisions are placed inside the eyelids (transconjuctival approach). This is necessary to minimize the risk of eyelid sagging or retraction. Not all plastic surgeons use this approach and that is why it is so important to find a surgeon specializing in eyelid surgery.   When excess skin is present the incision is placed just below the lashes. Dr. Levin combines trimming and/or repositioning of the lower eyelid fat to reduce the prominence of eyelid bags, while simultaneously filling depressions around the eyes (dark circles). In patients with pre-existing eyelid laxity, a canthal suspension procedure is performed to address this and decrease the risk of post-operative complications.

After the procedure patients are instructed to apply ice, rest and avoid strenuous activity. Swelling, bruising and irritation are expected in the early post-operative period. Healing time varies between patients, with age, general health and medications affecting the individual healing time.
