Dark circles or bags under the eyes can have a significant impact on our self-esteem and overall appearance. At NuBody Concepts, we understand your desire to look and feel your best, and we’re here to tell you that there is a solution.

Does Eyelid Surgery Help With Under-Eye Bags?

Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes by addressing issues such as under-eye bags and dark circles. At NuBody Concepts, we specialize in this transformative procedure, helping countless individuals regain their confidence and achieve a more youthful look.

Our eyelid and bag surgery is a meticulous and precise process. By removing excess skin and fat and skillfully tightening the eyelid area, we can provide a natural and lasting improvement in your overall facial appearance. Our board-certified plastic surgeons, John D. Rosdeutscher, MD (Nashville) and Mark H. Peters, MD (Memphis), perform this surgical procedure. NuBody Concepts has cosmetic surgery practices in Nashville and Memphis, and our plastic surgeons have 25 years of extensive experience helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals.

Causes of Concern

Before we jump into how eyelid surgery can help with under-eye bags and dark circles, let’s take a moment to understand what causes these concerns in the first place. The factors contributing to under-eye bags and dark circles can be varied. Still, they typically fall into a few key categories.

  • Genetics: Unfortunately, some individuals are genetically predisposed to developing under-eye bags and dark circles. They’re unluckier than others, and under-eye bags run in the family. They may emerge more prominently than you would like or at a younger age.
  • Aging: Our skin loses elasticity as we age, and the muscles supporting our eyelids weaken. This natural aging process can lead to sagging skin and the accumulation of fat beneath the eyes, resulting in under-eye bags. For many men and women, signs of bags under their eyes creep in during their 40s and 50s. 
  • Lifestyle: Unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and inadequate sleep, can exacerbate the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles. These habits can lead to dehydration, which causes the skin to lose suppleness and become more prone to wrinkling. Keeping your lifestyle choices in check is always a good idea, as good habits are helpful even after eyelid surgery. 

If you are experiencing dark circles under your eyes, figure out the cause before you start looking for a solution. This will help you make sense of your experience and help your plastic surgeon successfully combat the issue. 

How Eyelid Surgery Helps

Whatever the cause, if you have under-eye bags and dark circles, it’s safe to say that you’re ready to get rid of them. At NuBody Concepts, our skilled board-certified plastic surgeons perform eyelid surgery for dark circles with precision and care to help you achieve the best possible results.

The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the eyelid area. This surgery eliminates the unsightly bulges responsible for under-eye bags and tightens the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance. No matter what work you have done at NuBody Concepts, we always start with an initial consultation to tailor your treatments to your unique needs, ensuring the results look natural and harmonize with your natural facial features.

Considerations and Alternatives

While eyelid surgery can be a highly effective solution, it’s essential to acknowledge that it may not suit everyone. Managing your expectations and exploring alternative or complementary treatments is crucial in making an informed decision about your cosmetic journey. 

For some individuals, non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers or radio frequency therapy may offer temporary relief from under-eye bags and dark circles. These can help reduce the signs of bags with a non-surgical option for an eyelid lift. However, it’s important to understand that these treatments may not provide the long-lasting results that eyelid surgery can deliver.
