Aging, among other things, include forming of bags under the eyes. Aging is happening when a protective coat of fat that borders the eyes, starts to sag as the reaction to gravity or decreasing elasticity of skin. In such cases, the face looks older and it gives the individual a fatigued look. The eye bag elimination treatment can make a patient look younger. There are many factors that can attribute to ugly eye bags. The fat weight around the eyes can be caused by lax muscles, ligaments, epidermis etc. An additional fat supports eyelid barriers, so the eyes look baggy, because sometimes the relaxed epidermis may cause the bag due to extra skin in the area. Sagging eyebrows also thickens the muscle in the lid of the upper eyelids, forming bags under the eyes.
Surgery for eye bag elimination removes bags that form under the eyes, so patients look tired. Eye bags may interfere with sight and vision and in such case removal surgery helps. However, surgery won’t remove dark circles and won’t lift eyebrows. The method of eye bag removal procedure involves a few tiny incisions, just under the eyelash, when both surplus skin and fat are removed. The procedure blepharoplasty is done on upper and lower eyelids. After the eye bags removal procedure there are stitches to stay and are usually removed in a 3 to 7 days, after the surgery.

- Dermochalasis means additional skin.
- Hypertrophy of the orbicularis muscle is an overgrowth of the eyelid muscle and a growing of extra fat.
- Brow ptosis is when the drooping eyebrows create baggy upper eyelids.
