Tighten Up Those Eyelid Bags

It’s normal for our skin to sag and loosen as we age. But sometimes our under-eyelids can sag, darken, or loosen without explanation. This can make you look tired and much older than you actually are! 

At the offices of Omar Ozgur, MD, we’re dedicated to helping you look and feel your best. And that’s why we’re proud to offer you a variety of treatment options for your under-eyes. Read on to learn more about how we can help you with this all too common problem.   

Why we get eye bags

Eye bags are quite a nuisance! Sometimes the problem is age-related. As we get older, the skin under our eyes starts to thin and lose its elasticity. Sometimes the problem is due to lifestyle factors like smoking, lack of sleep, and allergies that can make your under eye bags sag and darken. And, sometimes the problem is just plain hereditary, as under-eye bags can run in your family.

How we treat eye bags

At our offices, we have a variety of treatment options. If your under eyelid problem isn’t too severe, we can try to treat it with noninvasive skin-tightening options like laser or radiofrequency treatments. 

However, if the problem is severe enough, you may need to consider some more aggressive interventions like an eye lift, also called a blepharoplasty. With an eye lift, the operation is done in our office under local or general anesthesia. Though it’s an outpatient procedure, you will need someone to take you to and from your appointment, as the anesthetic can make you drowsy.

During the procedure, Dr. Ozgur carefully removes excess skin and underlying fat from your upper and lower eyelids, then tightens them up to provide you with a fresh and youthful look. The results are stunning, leaving you with a more youthful appearance, and potentially better vision, as the procedure removes any loose skin that may have been blocking your vision.   

Recovering after your procedure

While the operation is only minimally invasive and doesn’t require an operating room or heavy anesthesia, you will still feel some pain and discomfort and will require some recovery time afterward. Here are a few simple tips that we suggest, to make your recovery as smooth as possible:

You can generally resume your usual activities after a week to 10 days, but everyone is different, so be sure to keep your follow-up appointments and notify us if you notice any problems.
