Why do my eyes appear tired all the time - Eye Bag Removal

Being an eye and plastic surgeon, I get to see a lot of patient talking about how to improve the appearance of their eyelids. Patients often visit the clinic saying that they look “tired” all the time even though they are fully rested!

Tired looking eyes can be caused by several different issues. I will be focusing on the lower eyelids in this blog. Under eye bags and dark circles make the whole face look tired. Long hours of sleep will not help to improve the bags. Plus, loose and wrinkled lower eyelid skin always gives a “tired” appearance.

The non-surgical treatment for lower eyelid bags and dark circles is to use an injectable filler to smooth out the contour of the lower eyelid. Filler can help to improve the contour of the lower lids and remove dark circles. It is important that I evaluate all aspects of the eyelid before choosing the best treatment because not everyone is a good candidate for lower eyelid filler.

The Surgical treatment for under eye bags and dark circles is a corrective lower eyelid blepharoplasty. In this procedure, I remove and reposition fat pockets in the lower eyelid to improve the contour of the lid. I also tighten the deeper layers of the eyelid and trim the skin and muscle to give a smooth appearance to the eyelid.
