From aged-looking and dull lower eyelids to brighter and youthful eyes!

Anti-aging lower eyelid surgery is a surgery to brighten up dull and aging lower eyelids, caused by sagging muscles and a bulging fat layer on the lower eyelid.

When fat accumulates, the lower eyelid becomes saggy. The eye bag builds up and the other areas become more sunken, which can cause an aged and tired look. Depending on the individual’s physical characteristics and condition, lower eyelid fat can be removed or repositioned to the sunken areas on the eyes.

In some cases, the excess skin can be removed. By repositioning the fat and filling the sunken areas, the dark lower eyelids become brighter and the appearance becomes younger.

Different Reasons for Lower Eyelid Aging Process

Skin and muscle sagging

The lower eyelids which were previously attached to the bone loosen and gravity causes the eyelids to sag naturally.

Loss of volume

The volume of the muscle and the fat under the muscle decreases, making the eyes sunken.

Loss in elasticity

Skin elasticity tends to decrease as we age. By checking the elasticity beforehand, canthopexy is performed together to prevent the lower eyelid turning outward (ectropion).

Eye bag protrusion

When the strength of the muscle on the eyes decreases, the fat on the lower eyelid protrudes.

Deep tear trough

The eyes have a deep crease under the protruded eye bag, which is called the tear trough. The tear trough is where the muscle is attached and it occurs when the tissues around this area become thinner. The tear trough becomes more and more obvious.

Bulging lower eyelid fat

Recommended When

  • The eye bag on the lower eyelids stands out
  • Due to dull and dark lower eyelids, the face looks dark and tired.
  • Dark lower eyelids are not covered by makeup.
  • Dark lower eyelids are not brightened by laser treatment.
  • The fat under the eyes (called a love band or an agyosal) becomes flatter and starts to wrinkle.

Pre-op Checkup

To achieve satisfactory results in terms of functional and aesthetic purpose, a pre-op checkup should be performed and a personalized plan made for each patient.
