ASK DR. YAGODA
Question: My eyes always look tired and I have eye bags. I’m a 42-year-old man from Manhattan and I scar easily. Am I a candidate for an eyelid lift?
Answer: Yes, lower lid bags can easily be removed without leaving any visible scar. This is through a transconjunctival approach. In this surgery, an incision is made inside the lower eyelid and the fat is removed from the inside. This technique not only removes the unwanted fat bags, but it also preserves the strength and elasticity of the lower eyelid skin.
