Some of our patients have brought forth interesting and detailed questions about upper eyelid surgery, otherwise known as upper blepharoplasty, and eye bags treatment.


Is There a Nonsurgical Way to Remove Bags from Under my Eyes?

I am 52 years old and I have bags under my eyes. One is worse than the other and I would like to know a nonsurgical way to get them to go away. I don’t have any winkles and this is the only thing that gives my age away. Also being on a fixed income I would like to know how I can get rid of them the most cheapest way possible. Can anyone advise of a nonsurgical solution?

: Thank you for your interest on how to remove bags from under eyes! Actually, there are no non-surgical means that could remove under eye bags. Surgery like blepharoplasty is still the way to go if your goal is to “remove” your under eye bags. However, there ARE non-surgical methods, which may help improve, cover, or reduce the under eye bags even by a bit.

But before anything else, you need to know that the severity of the fat herniation will tell if the non-surgical means of improving under eye bags will help you achieve your desired result. This will be determined when you visit a board certified plastic surgeon in Santa Barbara in person for an under eye bag evaluation. If your surgeon finds that your eye bags are not very prominent, non-surgical means like filler injections could be done in order to blend the under eye bags into your cheeks. Getting fillers can help conceal or mask the eye bags for about 1 year.

That being said, always consult a board certified Santa Barbara plastic surgeon so that he or she can evaluate your case as well as consider the best options for you. Your plastic surgeon in Santa Barbara will consider all of the possible causes of the under eye bags and the factors that could help identify the best non-surgical option that give you your required result. I hope you find this helpful!
