WHAT ARE EYE BAGS?

borsesottogliocchi_01

When we speak about eye bags, we mean the presence of adipose or fat tissue protruding out of its natural seat. Fat is kept in its position by the eye socket septum and by the orbicular muscle, but the loss of muscle tone of those structures causes the protrusion of the fat and appearance of the bags under eyes.

The result is an unnatural puffiness, more often of the lower eyelids, which makes the gaze heavier and the face look older.


CAN I REMOVE EYE BAGS?

The patients turn to an oculoplasty surgeon:

  • Because they complain about a tired look, aged and depressed due to the eye bags.
  • Because the presence of the adipose bags makes them feel uncomfortable and embarrassed when with other people.
  • Because they don’t recognize themselves anymore looking in the mirror and at the pictures, where they don’t find their personality and desired look.

Each patient will be guided and advised on the most suitable and cutting-edge surgical treatments, based on the most updated guidelines of the international surgical associations

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that as a great effect in a facial rejuvenation program. For the lower eyelid, the excess fat is eliminated through an incision that runs just below the eyelashes or through an incision hidden in the inside of the eyelid, the conjunctiva, without leaving any visible external scars (trans-conjunctival blepharoplasty).

The chosen treatment is personalised so to respect the patient’s expectations, the harmony of the gaze and the proportions of the entire face

The lower blepharoplasty and the use of fillers, as an alternative or complimentary treatment are operations which are highly effective within a total face rejuvenation. The operation is able to eliminated the eye bags.

The patient does not feel pain either during surgery or during the immediate post-operative due to the effect of the anesthesia prolonged analgesic therapy. The majority of patients still do not require any kind of pain medication.

The incision is hidden between the natural facial lines and creases, and so it’s not visible, or practiced on the inside of the eyelid (transcutaneous blepharoplasty) with a total absence of external scars.
The result is a rejuvenation of the gaze and face, preserving the proportions and guaranteeing natural and harmonious look.
The tired and prematurely senile look is corrected, and the patient finds his young and lively expression.
