Can blepharoplasty be used to repair the appearance of bags under the eyes?

Bags under the eyes may be due to medical conditions, such as allergies or thyroid disorders. Another potential cause is the fat bags of the lower eyelids. Assuming your bags are due to the fat from the lower eyelids then, yes, a lower lid blepharoplasty will address this issue for you. During my exam, I look at the area beneath the bags. If there is a hollowness beneath the bags, then I like to perform a lower lid blepharoplasty that re-positions those fat pads into the area of hollowness, thus effacing the hollowness and providing a more youthful contour between the eyes and cheeks.
