: Can Fat Under Eyes be Removed Without Surgery? 

I got baggy eyes & want to remove excessive fat from upper & lower lid of eyes, is it possible without surgery,if no how much it cost to the persons who resides in Canada or UAE.

: Thank you for your interest. No, there are no non-surgical treatments that could help “remove” eye bags. However, there ARE non-surgical ways to “improve or reduce” under eye fat. Complete removal of eye bags may require surgery since the fat in the bags needs to be extracted or repositioned. That being the case, let us focus on the non-surgical options. Since I am not able to personally assess your “under eye fat”, I will just give out possible non-surgical treatments. If the under eye fat or under eye bags are of mild nature, fillers may be helpful in masking or covering them so that they are less noticeable. Fillers, especially the hyaluronic acid types, are affordable. However, you may need to repeat treatment sessions after roughly a year since their effect is temporary and can wear off. Botox or laser treatments may be used as well.

For accurate treatment plan, consult your board certified plastic surgeon so he or she can assess your case and give you the proper treatment plan based on what you want done. Since we are opting for a non-surgical treatment, your surgeon must know the possible root cause of the bags so that proper non-surgical methods could be applied for the improvement of the eye bags. I hope you find this helpful!
