What procedure do I need for the bags under my eyes? Didn’t use to be concerned as they would disappear once I got enough sleep. But lately, this hasn’t worked.

Hello, thanks for your question.  Eye bags can be removed by surgical and non-surgical means.  Addressing the need to eliminate eye bags without surgery, dermal fillers, made of gels composed of hyaluronic acid can be used.  This method is best for those with excess fat under the eyes.  It is also recommended for those with eye bags caused by cheek deflation.  Downtime is little if any, most patients can return to work the same day or the day after while there are some that will have some tenderness, redness or swelling for up to 2 weeks after the procedure.  Surgical removal of eye bags can be done for those whose eye bags are caused by bulging or excess fat under the eyes.  The doctor removes and/or adjusts fat under the eyes to eliminate the bags. Depending on the patient’s recovery capacity, full recovery can take from 4 to 6 weeks.
