As eye bags are a natural effect of the age that just emerges in the face of almost anyone over the years. Although this is their main factor, bags can also be due to lack of sleep, allergies and habits that promote water retention.
As an aesthetic concern, this age-typical problem can affect our confidence by making us look too tired or discouraged, which is why many patients choose to undergo eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty.
HOW IS EYELID AND BAG SURGERY?
The eyes reflect in a very evident way the passage of time. The upper eyelids tend to fall progressively while, in the lower eyelids, the bags that age our eyes appear. With this, our face can look an aspect with which we are not satisfied, negatively affecting the physical conception we have of ourselves.
Eyelid and bag surgery offers a solution to this, allowing our professionals to rejuvenate the eyes of patients by remodeling the tissues surrounding the eye. As a general rule, blepharoplasty is performed primarily for aesthetic reasons, although in some cases it is necessary for visual reasons (functional blepharoplasty) since the loss of the skin of the upper eyelids can cause a reduction in the visual field. The objective of blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is to return to the look a more youthful appearance, maintaining the features of each person, with a natural appearance, avoiding visible scars and protecting eye health.
The process involves removing excess skin from the upper eyelid through a small incision. In the case of eye bags, it is possible to access them without any incision, unless there is an excess of skin. In this case, the scar will be one millimeter from the lash line and will be hidden in the eyelid groove. In a period of between 3 and 6 months the scars will go completely unnoticed.
