I am a 42-year-old Asian woman. I have had bags under my eyes for the past 10 years or so, and they seem to be getting worse and worse as I age. The bags have a full appearance to them, not like loose skin. Would lower blepharoplasty work on someone like me?

A blepharoplasty would address the bags under the eyes. The bags are caused by fat pads that become more prominent with time. A blepharoplasty is designed to either remove those fat pads or re-position those fat pads into a crease that sometimes occurs between the lower lids and cheeks. There are other potential causes of these bags, including allergies and thyroid disease, therefore, it may be worthwhile to have an evaluation for these potential causes.
