The eyes always tell us a lot about a person, for many they’re the most engaging part of the face. As we grow older, it’s always the eyes that age first, as the skin’s elasticity starts to loosen around the eyes, forming puffy bags.
It’s a common problem affecting both men and women, often giving a very tired appearance even making you look ill or older than you really are.
Stress and fatigue can also encourage the condition along with iron deficiency, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalances, food and dust allergies, smoking and many more.
Although eye bags pose no health issues, they do look unsightly and can be the cause of great concern and unhappiness.
Eyebag removal and eyelid surgery can now tackle the problem of dropping eyelids and eye bags. This is a treatment known as Blepharoplasty, which can be carried out as a day procedure on both the upper and lower eyelids treated together or separately.
The eyelid and eyebag surgery will make you look younger by smoothing out the folds and firming the eyelids to remove the hooded appearance and removing the bags below and any surplus tissue e.g. skin and fat.
