Can malar bags be improved with an eyelid lift?
An eyelid lift is a procedure that improves the contour of the lower eyelid area. It involves removing or rearranging the fat in the lower eyelid and then tightening the muscle and removing a small amount of skin. Malar bags are usually areas in the cheeks, not the eyelids, that retain fluid. This may be hereditary or caused by a diet high in salt that causes the body to retain fluid. These bags can be quite challenging to treat. Steroid injections can sometimes help the bags as well as a variety of other non-surgical options.
