Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty with Fat Grafting and Skin Pinch To Remove Eye Bags


Thank you for your question.

Fillers can camouflage eye bags by filling the depression beneath the lower eyelid bag.

Fillers are temporary and if not injected by an experienced surgeon, serious complications are not uncommon. I also do not like the idea of repeated injections into the eyelid, especially over a lifetime in younger people.

In my experience the Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty with Arcus Marginalis Release and Fat Grafting and a Skin Pinch Blepharoplasty provides an excellent permanent solution.

Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty can be used to reduce fat, but we rarely do it in young people. Usually filler will solve this problem much better. If you’re in your 20s and have fat removed under the eyes, in a couple of years the area will be very hollow.

You may be an excellent candidate for a transconjunctival blepharoplasty to treat the "bags" under your eyes.  This technique does not require an external scar.   Your surgery will need to perform a formal physical exam to determine your exact treatment plan.  Best of luck!

Transconjuntival Blepharoplasty for Under Eye Bags


The design of the transconjunctval blepharoplasty is to resect excess fat from under the eye.  One should not resect too much fat, as one does not want to look "holllowed out."  This may also be followed by some trimming of excess skin, if needed.
