Baggy skin under the eyes is a common condition that occurs among people all over the world. Genetics plays a very small role in the creation of eye bags; mostly it is age and stress factors that cause lower eyelid puffiness and sagging skin. Most of the time, they are an indication of things not going well in life, lack of sleep and old age. Many people would rather like these aspects of their appearance to remain a secret but even if they treat their condition, the eye bags will remain. So, the question always comes up on how to remove eye bags permanently?
Ways to Remove Eye Bags Permanently
While there is a slew of cosmetic and topical creams that claim to remove your eye bags, this treatment is far from being the permanent solution to the problem. Maybe it can bring about some effect but sagging skin cannot be treated by such creams as reported by various medical professionals. The only existing cure to remove eye bags permanently is delivered at the hands of a good plastic surgeon who permanently removes them with an eyelid lift procedure.
Although various commercials tempt people with their “depuffing” solutions and baggy eyelids creams, the truth remains that there is no miracle ingredient that can be applied topically to permanently remove eye bags. You should always save that money and spend it on a worthwhile option that is the eyelid surgery also known as Blepharoplasty.
Temporary Non-Surgical Cosmetic Solution
For those who do not want to undergo plastic surgery can address the problem with dermal fillers, but they don’t get permanent results either. The results are long-lasting but you will continuously need injectables in the eyelids to continue upholding your look. Collagen containing injectables such as Juvederm and Restylane are safe since they make use of synthetic hyaluronic acid (which also exists in the body) to smoothen out the fine lines, tighten skin and make the eye bags disappear for long periods of time. The collagen injected into the eyelids eventually deteriorates over time as it is metabolized by the body (varying from patient to patient) so the effects remain for almost 6 months to one year, or maybe longer in rare cases.
Permanent Surgical Cosmetic Solution
Blepharoplasty is the medical name to the colloquial “eyelid” surgery that is common in cosmetic clinics all over the world. It is the only existing permanent solution to remove eye bags. The procedure involves the simple removal of excess sagging skin or deposited fat while tightening loose muscles if necessary to greatly improve the appearance of eyes and upper face. Although this treatment alone cannot remove all signs of aging from a patient’s face, it can still be combined with a variety of other treatments, including chemical peels for discoloration and anything the plastic surgeon can recommend for individual patients.
How is Blepharoplasty performed?
Blepharoplasty is commonly carried out as an outpatient procedure with the administration of local anesthesia and mild sedation if necessary. The incision made will be along the crease of the lower eyelid just below the eyelashes after which excess fat is removed, muscles are stretched to tighten and extra skin is excised away. The incisions are then sutured shut with soluble stitches or medical glue. The entire procedure will require a preparation period. The procedure itself takes around two hours and the recovery time varies from 4-6 weeks during which the person gradually returns to a normal routine.
The Bottom Line
Eye bags can be removed both surgically and non-surgically. Non-surgically they can be treated through dermal fillers but they will not produce permanent results. However, surgically through blepharoplasty, you can permanently remove eye bags under the skin. The choice is yours now. Consult with a surgeon to make a clear decision regarding the type of procedure.
