Eye Bag Removal Before and After

February 23, 2012

Eye bags are dark circles under the eyes or puffy, sagging skin above and/or below the eyes. These bits of loose skin can make you look much older and constantly tired. Tear troughs come with age, smoking, stress and not getting enough sleep. Sometimes there can be just loose skin and fat whilst in others, the eye bags can actually contain fluid. This makes the pockets look swollen and puffy. It’s not really something you can hide with foundation or concealer because it’s the skin text_imageure which needs changing. Seeking an eye bag removal treatment is only natural if you suffer from any of these conditions and there are plenty out there that you can try, cheap and expensive. You may have looked at your parents over the years with their droopy bags and though “I’ll never get like that”. But once aging skin comes knocking on the door, you just have to accept it and deal with it.

You could try the least invasive treatment, eye creams. However, they don’t work for everyone. Keeping a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water and getting lots of rest and sleep are ways to delay getting puffy eyes in the first place. If it’s too late and you’re already a walking zombie, dermal fillers offer another non-surgical means of removal, whereas lipotherapy can help dissolve the fat.  Alternatively, skin tightening with chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing can also help. Where surgery is necessary, eyelid surgery can remove excess skin around the yes for a complete rejuvenation of your face.

Contributing causes of eye bags (dark circles, puffy or sag)

Age – #1 Aging (main factor and contributor)

Muscles – Muscles supporting the eyes wakening causing the skin to sag.

Rest – Not getting enough sleep or bad sleep.

Fats – Fat begins to dissolve above the eye leaving it sagging.

Fluid – The space under the eyes collects fluid giving it that puffy swollen appearance.

Stress – Too much stress can also leave your eyes looking tired and give you dark circles under the eyes.

Allergy – Most allergies affect the eyes especially making them puffy and water.

Dehydration – Not drinking enough water and being dehydrated for a long time can give you eye bags.

Kidneys – Problems with your kidney may also affect how the blood vessels around your eyes circulate and get their nutrients.

Genes – Your problem with eye bags may also be hereditary and not your fault at all.

Rubbing – If you rub your eyes too much then you can damage the skin around the eyes very easily.

Alcohol – Being an alcoholic doesn’t help because it dehydrates you and the sensitive blood vessels around your eyes.

Caffeine – A high caffeine consumption can dehydrate your skin easily and make you look older, be sure to drink plenty of water if you’re a caffeine addict.

Hormones – Hormonal imbalances also could take its toll on your sensitive eyes.

In the end – Basically there are a lot of problems which may contribute to you getting eye bags no matter how bad they are so your overall health and age is very important.

Drugs – Taking illegal drugs like a lot of cannabis or the wrong prescription drugs may cause dark eye bags under your eyes or saggy skin to develop, consult your physician to determine if they have had a negative effect.

Before getting treatment

Before undergoing any eye bag removal treatments or operations you may wish to try and avoid the contributing factors above for a few weeks and if you are still suffering from bad eye bags you may wish to see a doctor to see what you can do about them. The fact and problem is you may have just aged and need to have a treatment done. Prior to having your eye bags removed you probably would have been asked daily by several people why you look so tired until you got tired of answering the question with an “I don’t know why!”, this can be very frustrating and that’s why you’ve landed here. The best thing to do when you spot a little change in your eyes developing eye bags is to do something about it as soon as possible before they blow out into full blown bags. You must understand that the fat around your eyes is ultimately supported by ligaments and as you age these become weaker, lose their elasticity and give way to saggy eye bags. Below we’ve listed a few tips for you to try out before having to make the choice to undergo cosmetic or plastic surgery.

Tips before undergoing plastic surgery

The following tips below may be used for dark circles, puffy and or saggy wrinkly skin.

Cosmetic and plastic surgery treatments after trying everything else

After trying everything else to remove any sort of eye bags you may have little choice but to consider something drastic and invasive.

Filler injections – cosmetic dermal fillers are evidently injected under the eyes to help even out the puffy area and removes any indentation due to a puff. The problem is this only lasts 9 months and then has to be repeated again making you fork out hundreds of dollars at a time and having to go through the pain of getting multiple injections near your eyes which is very off putting. Restylane is extremely popular though and is the most sought after cosmetic surgery procedure in the world by women so the statistics show how great it works. Complications may arise because it is so close to your eyes though, we’ve herd of a lady having tearing eyes for months because the physician injected the wrong area and she had to walk around with a handkerchief all day to wipe her face when tears came out of her eyes.

Eye lift – This is a great option if you wish to have almost permanent (more than 20 years) results and would rather save the time and money of having fillers done every year. An eye lift (known as Blepharoplasty) removes the saggy looking eye bags and any excess skin which would be better if it wasn’t there. The procedure only takes an hour and you should see the full results of it after two weeks. You will be prescribed pain medication and the surgeon/physician will give you after care instruction on how to treat your eyes.

Laser or IPL – This is a cosmetic surgery procedure which is used to remove dark circle eye bags. It uses an intense pulse light to treat the area by vaporizing extra blood vessels making the dark unwanted color look less noticeable under your skin.

After eye bag removal

You will be content because the eyes are very important to you and will no doubt make you look much younger. People look into each other’s eyes when they talk to each other and you can be rest assured that you have improved you appearance.


How much it will cost you to remove those tear troughs will depend on the treatment you choose. Creams and lotions can cost anywhere from $30. Fillers like Juvederm can be around $400 per treatment whilst chemical peels and laser resurfacing will put you out of pocket from $1,500. Eyelid surgery is probably the most expensive option, starting at around $2,500 just fort the surgeon’s fees. You have anesthesia and facility fees on top of that.


I started getting dark circles under my eyes. They got so bad that I looked like a panda and I just looked tired all the time. Then came the bags (puffiness under the eyes). At this stage I knew I had to do something about it. I tried those chamomile sticks and used that for about a month, but I didn’t see any improvement. Then I bought Revitol cream and that worked a little. Finally, I couldn’t be bothered waiting for the treatment to work so I decided to get fillers. They made a huge difference and my tear troughs have actually disappeared.

After I turned 50 that’s when I started to realize my face wasn’t what it used to be. I had a stressful job my whole life and finally decided to downsize. The bags under my eyes were unbelievable. I wasn’t keen on getting plastic surgery because that seems a bit drastic for me.
I went to my doctor to get something done about the puffiness because it just make me look years older. My doctor suggested dermal fillers. I didn’t think adding more volume would do the trick but I gave him the benefit of the doubt. It worked. The skin has evened out and the change was instantaneous. It was much cheaper than having surgery and it’s meant to last for about 9 months so I’m really pleased.
