Does a good night’s sleep no longer have an effect on your under-eye bags? Sagging skin, puffiness, and creases on the lower eyelids can make you appear tired, stressed, and older than you actually are. Fortunately, there may be a way to address these concerns. Lower eyelid surgery from our board certified plastic surgeon can help to smooth away wrinkles, reduce excess fatty tissue, and tighten skin in this area. Dr. Neal Goldberg tailors each procedure to optimize your results for a more refreshed look regardless of your sleep quality.
Puffiness is commonly caused by excess fatty tissue, which can take on a swollen appearance. “Bags” are often formed by a combination of fatty tissue and skin laxity. In lower eyelid surgery, excess skin will be trimmed, loose muscles will be trimmed or tightened, and the fat pad may be reduced in size. Care is taken to ensure the outcome is as smooth and natural-looking as possible. Our experienced surgeon uses tiny sutures to close well hidden incisions, and scars may be virtually undetectable once healed. Another potential benefit of lower eyelid surgery is the long-lasting outcome. Many patients can maintain the effects for 10-15 years, particularly if they take good care of their skin and avoid smoking and excess sunlight.
It may not be possible to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night, but reducing the appearance of under-eye bags is often achievable. Talk to our friendly and knowledgeable medical team today to learn more.
