Do people ask you if you’re getting enough sleep because they notice that you have puffy bags under your eyes? It doesn’t matter if you get a good’s night rest, because the reason for your lower eyelid bags is not the amount of sleep you are getting.

The cause of dark circles and puffy lower eyelids is excess lower eyelid fat and skin. The best way to restore the vibrant appearance of the eyes is to remove and/or reposition the excess fat with possible skin removal.

This surgery is called a lower blepharoplasty. It is performed by making a small incision along the inside of the lower eyelid with the possibility of an incision on the outside at the lash line. Excess fat is carefully removed or repositioned from the area to create a smooth, youthful transition from the eyelid to the cheek.
