Eyebags Are Not Ageists

“Lucky” me, I had eyebags for as long as I can remember. Although eyebags worsen with age, like me, many may develop them in their youth. “People with flat cheekbones, higher volume of orbital fat (fat around their eyes) or weaker support tissues are more likely to develop eyebags from a young age,” explained Dr Chia Hui Ling, a Consultant Plastic Surgeon from the prestigious SW1 Plastic Surgery Clinic in Paragon Medical Centre. Dr Chia says her youngest eyebag surgery patient was in her early twenties.

Youths are often very bothered by eyebags. Encircling the windows to their souls, the most common complaint from young people who come for eyebag surgery is that they get asked repeatedly why they look knackered, even after a good night’s sleep. Especially at an age where they are likely to socialize more regularly and meet people at work.

Eyebag Surgery For The Young

On the bright side, young patients have tight, non-saggy eyelid skin, making them excellent candidates for scarless lower eyelid surgery. Also known as transconjunctival blepharoplasty, the plastic surgeon removes eyebag fat via the inner lining of the lower eyelid.  Because no skin cut is made, minimal swelling is experienced after the operation and best of all – no visible scars. Dr Chia recommends SmartX Lite after surgery, a skin tightening laser to smooth out any loose eyelid skin. Older patients can opt for eyebag surgery with removal of saggy skin, which leaves an inconspicuous scar at the lower lashline.

Not Ready For The S Word?

If you are not ready to go under the knife, there are other options to mask eyebags and brighten the lower eyelid area, often referred to as the tear trough region. Revitalift Eye camouflages eyebags by filling and erasing the dark hollows under the eyebags and by boosting the eyelid skin thickness. Using dermal fillers tailored for the eye area, Revitalift Eye also helps with dark eye circles. In the hands of an experience injector, the results can be as good as surgery. The downside is that it works only for mild cases and the result is not permanent, lasting for a few months to a year.
