Will Eye Bags Return After Blepharoplasty Surgery?

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


The eyes are usually the first place to show subtle signs of aging. Puffy eyes and dark circles become more prominent due to genetics and factors like sun damage and smoking. This can make you appear older or more fatigued than you really are. If you have problems with sagging tissue under your eyes, blepharoplasty in Beverly Hills or Las Vegas at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery might help.

So, what is blepharoplasty, and how does it work? Will your eye bags return after blepharoplasty surgery? While plastic surgery cannot fight the effects of future aging, most patients are completely satisfied with their results. Learn more by meeting with Oculo Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint. Our office can help you get rid of eye bags and appear more refreshed.

What is blepharoplasty?

Sagging skin or fat around the eyes is not a desirable trait for most people. So, what is blepharoplasty? Blepharoplasty is also known as eyelid surgery. This treatment can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids to make them appear smoother and more attractive. Ideal candidates for this procedure are in good health and do not have any serious eye conditions. As we mentioned, while this surgery can enhance your appearance, it cannot stop future signs of aging. However, it is considered permanent.

A blepharoplasty in Beverly Hills, CA or Las Vegas, NV is ideal for the following cosmetic issues:

  • Loose or sagging skin around the eyes

  • Fine wrinkles around the eyes

  • Puffy eyes, or fat deposits under the eyes

  • Under eye bags

How blepharoplasty is performed

Dr. Myint can personalize your eyelid surgery based on your specific concerns. For example, many of our patients want to treat dark circles and under eye bags that make them appear constantly tired. To achieve this goal, we may remove excess lower eyelid fat and reposition the skin. Incisions are carefully placed to minimize scarring as much as possible. The overall goal is to get rid of eye bags and create a younger-looking appearance. With our clinic, no one will be able to tell you had any work done!

Making your results last

The results of your blepharoplasty become more visible as side effects, like swelling and bruising, subside. Most patients love their outcomes and do not seek repeat treatments. While future aging may cause your eye bags to return, this ultimately depends on your age, skin condition, and lifestyle choices. Factors like smoking and sun exposure may also change your results. Our office recommends taking care of your skin by following a regular skin care routine at home. We can also suggest touch-up treatments as needed.
