Lower Eyelid Bags

Lower Eyelid Surgery Can Achieve A Fresher Appearance


Dark circles under your eyes or puffy eyelids can make you seem tired or older. With lower eyelid surgery and other treatments, you can enjoy a younger appearance.

Dr. McCann from Discover Facial Appearances can enhance your natural beauty using safe procedures.

What Causes the Dark Circles under My Eyes?

As we age, the tissue structure and muscles around the eyes begin to weaken. Fat tissue that once surrounded the eye can begin to migrate to the area below the eye.

At the same time, fluid can accumulate in the area below the eyes, so that it appears puffy and swollen.

How Can I Get Rid of Baggy Eyelids and Dark Circles Under My Eyes?

Dr. McCann can assess your unique situation. He will make recommendations for cosmetic treatments or lower eyelid surgery.

Lower Blepharoplasty


Lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is an outpatient surgical procedure. It is usually performed using a hidden incision on the inside of the eyelid.

During blepharoplasty, excess fat or skin is removed through an incision in the lower lid. Your surgeon will then rejoin the skin with tiny dissolving stitches.

In most cases, the goal of lower eyelid surgery is to get rid of the depression between the eyelid fat and the cheek fat. Soft tissue or fat bulges in the lower eyelid can be repositioned underneath it. This gives you a more youthful and rested appearance.

Are there Risks or Complications With Blepharoplasty?

Every surgical procedure involves the possibility of complications. Common complications and risks to pay attention to with blepharoplasty include:

  • Dry Eyes
  • Watery Eyes
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Blurred Vision

More serious, but very rare complications include:

  • Visual loss
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Injury to eye muscles
  • Corneal abrasion
  • Drooping of an eyelid.

If you choose eyelid surgery, Dr. McCann will explain side effects and complications. It’s up to the patient to make sure they are making an informed decision.
