Lower Eyelid

“What Is Lower Eyelid Surgery?”

Lower Eyelid Surgery is a surgery that can freshen up your image by removing excess bulky fat tissues or flattening your under eye. There are three methods for the surgery depending on the condition. If you have sunken under eye, then under eye should be filled with layers of fats to flatten out. If you have dark circles, a thin layer of fat will be inserted to cover up the dark circle. If you have bulky eye bags, fat reposition and flattening out are required.

Doctor’s Message

Under eye bag, dark circle, and sunken under eye usually appear as we age, but it may also show when you have a thin under eye skin and weak fat tissues since you were young. Lower eyelid surgery is a popular surgery for all ages for both men and women since bulky under eye bag possibly gives depressed and tired appearance. If you want to achieve a fresh and clean image, lower eyelid surgery is definitely recommended for you.
