I am 32 years of age and have terrible black bags under my eyes that I am looking for a cure for?


The presence of prominent lower eyelid bags in a young person such as you, is frequently a reflection of underdevelopment of the maxilla and lower rim of the orbit (eye socket) which means insufficient support to the lower eyelid.

Depending on the anatomical configuration, the answer can be:

  • transconjunctival lower eyelid blepharoplasty,
  • fat transfer to the cheek alone or in combination with lower eyelid blepharoplasty
  • Cheek implants combined with lower eyelid transconjunctival blepharoplasty
  • Injectable fillers below the eyelid bags in isolation or in combination with cheek implants

Essentially, for a situation like this I would recommend a consultation using 3-D imaging and simulation in order to evaluate the type of change that best fits your aspirations, and then discussed regarding the type of treatment suitable to achieve it.
