Question: I feel like my lower eyelids make me tired. What can I do about that look?
This is not an uncommon complaint by both men and women. There are several things that may come into consideration based on our analysis of the lower lid.
We will first look at the skin and determine whether there is extra skin or even a “crepe-like” appearance to the skin. Options may include everything from chemical peels to laser skin resurfacing to surgical excision.
For the “dark circles,” we have to determine the cause. Pigment, thin skin with “show” of the underlying muscle and shadowing due to loss of fat or swelling may all be causes for “darkness” and can be addressed with things such as skin care, lasers, or dermal fillers.
Puffiness or baggy lower eyelids are often due to bulging of the underlying fat and may require surgical removal. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is popular at our Dallas and Frisco, TX, locations for this indication. You can see examples of real eyelid surgery transformations in our before-and-after photo gallery.
Rejuvenating the lower eyelids requires more than a one-size-fits-all solution. It is important to see a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine the exact nature of your concerns and design a customized treatment plan to address them.
