I am 33 years old and have bags under my eyes. I don’t think they necessarily make me look older. I just don’t like them. How long is this surgical procedure? Are the bags made of fat that is removed, or do you have to fill in the area? How long afterwards will my eyes look black and blue?
You might benefit from a transconjunctival lower eyelid blephatoplasty with fat transposition. In this procedure, which takes about an hour, an incision is made inside the eyelid to expose the fat pads under your eyes. The fat is then moved down under the cheek to fill in a depression called the tear trough. You can expect swelling and significant black and blue for about 2 –3 weeks.
