The appearance of loose skin under the eyes has a dramatically ageing effect.
Lower eyelid bags and dark circles are two very common reasons patients seek a consultation with our surgeons. These eye bags and circles lend to looking older and fatigued, and are impossible to hide behind makeup. Genetics, variations in anatomy, excess sun exposure, ageing and herniation of orbital fat can all be reasons why the problems exist. While there are many reasons for eye bags and circles to develop, it is important to know that our eye bag treatments also vary according to the needs of each individual. Eye rejuvenation is a high priority for our patients.
Sunken lower eyelids can be improved considerably with a simple, non-surgical dermal filler treatment, referred to as ‘tear trough’ treatment. By placing a discrete level of facial fillers into the under eye cavity, we can elevate the skin and rejuvenate the eye area. It restores lost volume and smoothes out the crevice created by the ageing process.
The longevity of results is variable, depending on the product used. Upon consultation we will discuss with you the best type of dermal filler to use for your particular indication. For the delicate eye area, though, we will always opt for a soft, natural-looking gel that will not give anything away.
Blepharoplasty, or lower eyelid surgery, is an effective surgical eye bag treatment solution. The procedure is often performed under local anaesthetic as a day case and the majority of the swelling will subside after the first 48-72 hours. Overall, the bruising tends to last approximately 14-21 days.
