Lower eyelid “bags” and “dark circles” are two of the most common reasons why patients are visiting plastic surgery clinics. Under eye circles can be caused by stress, fatigue, aging, lifestyle choices and other causes. The skin around the eyes is more sensitive to stress and appear more often in older people as the skin around the eyes loses elasticity. There are two kinds of surgery for dark under eye circles.
Blepheroplasty is a procedure in which excess skin is removed from under the eyes and the remaining skin is tightened to remove bags.
The other kind of surgery uses laser in an attempt to rejuvenate collagen in the skin. This procedure tightens and smoothes the skin under the eyes and requires less time to recover. One of the main pros of the surgery for under eye circles is that it is very effective. Patients look younger and healthier after having the surgery.
Blepharoplasty is not a complicated surgery. If it is performed by an experienced surgeon, it can take about an hour or two. One of the main benefits is that the surgery is performed using local anaesthesia. This surgery is not a painful procedure and it takes two weeks for full recovery. Generally speaking, eyelid surgery is one of the quickest plastic surgery procedures to recover from.
The biggest advantage of this treatment is that a patient can achieve a beautiful appearance and self-confidence. They can experience a boost in their self esteem.
