“I am only 32 years old, but there are already pronounced bags under my eyes. I read about different methods, but I just can't decide what to choose. No patches and massages with gadgets help anymore. I would like to hear the opinion of a plastic surgeon"

Reader, 32

Expert's answer:

The self-isolation period has been going on for almost two months. We all eat more and exercise little, so we look swollen. More and more patients turn to me with the question "How to remove bags under the eyes?"

One of the most common reasons is the structural feature of the lower eyelid, which suggests pronounced fatty hernias. With age, in many people, the processes of tissue atrophy, that is, aging in the lower eyelid, the severity of bags under the eyes begins to worsen: skin tone decreases, swelling in the lower eyelid becomes more noticeable, as in the case of the nasolacrimal groove.

There are several ways of correction - from cosmetic procedures to surgical operations. At the first signs of bags under the eyes - loss of volume in the middle zone of the face - a cosmetic correction and injection correction can be carried out with a small amount of hyaluronic acid. True, here the doctor must be extremely careful: if the hernia is already strongly pronounced, additional injection of the filler will provoke swelling in this area, and you will not achieve the desired result.

If the problem persists, but grows and bothers you more and more, the best solution would be to visit a plastic surgeon. There are two methods to restore youthfulness and beauty to the eye area. If you are young, the operation is performed without an incision in the skin - transconjunctivally, through the mucous membrane. The eyelid is pulled back, a small incision is made in the mucous membrane (so the surgeon gets under the muscles exactly on these hernias). The main advantage of this operation is that after it there are no traces left on the skin.

If you are an older patient, the intervention will be more serious: an incision under the eyelashes is required in order to tighten the skin and remove hernias. In this case, a more multifaceted approach is required: you can add your own fat (lipofilling procedure), remove skin or hernias. Combinations are possible depending on each specific case. You should not be afraid of the incision under the eyelashes - in a month it will no longer be visible.

In any surgery, a relative disadvantage is the rehabilitation period. After 10-14 days, with light makeup, it will already be possible to return to your usual way of life. Also, it will not be superfluous to know that lower blepharoplasty is performed under sedation (this is a light medication sleep). The operation is short enough, takes 30-40 minutes and is popular among both men and women.
