I am 52 years old and look tired all of the time due to the dark bags under my eyes. It feels like fatty tissue. I would like the fat removed. Can this be accomplished with gentle liposuction or is blepharoplasty necessary?
The bags you are seeing in the lower part of your eyes is actually fat that has sagged from the inside of the orbit, or eye socket. Liposuction can be used to remove the fat because it is in a very delicate area. In order to remove it, I make a small incision underneath the eyelashes or inside the eye, and gently remove the fat. We then remove a small amount of skin so that it does not sag.
