How Blepharoplasty Can Correct Your Under-Eye Bags

How Blepharoplasty Can Correct Your Under-Eye Bags

The summer season gets underway early in southern California. You’ve probably already pulled out your shorts and sandals — and your sunglasses along with them. If you’re living with under-eye bags, that last item can feel particularly welcome. With sunglasses on, no one can see the bags that may make you look older and more tired. 

The issue, of course, is that you can’t wear sunglasses around the clock. That doesn’t mean you have to show your drooping eyes off to the world, though. 

With a blepharoplasty, Linda Swanson, MD, can correct under-eye bags, helping you look younger and more energized. If you want to face summer with eyes wide open, don’t hesitate to schedule a blepharoplasty consultation with Dr. Swanson at either of our offices, conveniently located in Torrance and Los Alamitos, California.

To give you a better idea of what blepharoplasty can do for you, we also built this guide.

Blepharoplasty basics

Blepharoplasty is basically a long way of saying eyelid surgery. People have traditionally opted for this procedure to address drooping upper eyelids. Over the years, a lot of people deal with sagging skin that makes them look older. In fact, eyelids can get so saggy that they even interfere with your ability to see.

Dr. Swanson can take blepharoplasty a step further, though. As a plastic surgery specialist, she knows how important it is to look your best after a procedure. So while she offers blepharoplasty to correct drooping upper eyelids (i.e., upper eyelid blepharoplasty), she also offers it to address an extremely common issue: under-eye bags. We call this lower eyelid blepharoplasty. 

Eliminating bags with lower eyelid blepharoplasty

During your lower eyelid blepharoplasty, Dr. Swanson directly addresses the extra skin and fat that accumulate under your eyes. 

She tightens your skin, eliminating sag and reducing the number of fine lines around your lower eyelid. At the same time, she removes the fatty deposits that cause the bags under your eyes.

Get ready for summer

Blepharoplasty gives you a way to look younger and more alert this summer — but it’s not your only choice. Dr. Swanson offers a range of fixes to get you summer-ready, including liposuctionbreast augmentations, and abdominoplasty (a tummy tuck). If you want to head into the warmer weather feeling great in your swimsuit, don’t hesitate to talk to Dr. Swanson.
