Eye Bag Removal / Lower Blepharoplasty Philadelphia, PA

What does a lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) help to treat?

Lower blepharoplasty (eye bag removal) is the surgical sculpting and contouring of the lower eyelids offered at Chandler Cosmetic Surgery serving Philadelphia (Jenkintown, Abington PA), the Main Line, and South Jersey (Cherry Hill, Moorestown, NJ). Lower eyelid surgery requires artistry and precision with a top expert in eyelid plastic surgery.

    • Lower eyelid “bags” are significantly improved by cosmetic lower blepharoplasty.
    • Saggy eyelids and excess skin are tightened and the entire lower eyelid region is rejuvenated.
    • Incisions are placed just under the lashes and follow into the natural creases of the eyelids or are hidden inside the lower eyelid itself.
    • Healing from lower blepharoplasty leaves almost imperceptible, hidden scars that blend beautifully with time.
    • After lower blepharoplasty, people look refreshed and much less tired or worn out.

What causes eye bags and how are eye bags removed?

Eye “bags” are usually caused by fat from the eye socket that begins to protrude, bulge, become more obvious or move out of place as we age. Eye bags are not “fluid” but are made of actual fatty tissue. This fat is often not connected to body weight or diet. Genetics do play a big role and some even very young patients have puffy lower eyelid bags the require cosmetic lower eyelid surgery to improve. Dr. Chandler treats adult patients of all ages who have lower eye bags.

Lower eyelid surgery is usually required to treat lower eye bags. During a lower blepharoplasty procedure, Dr. Chandler will remove, sculpt, or reposition the fat of the lower eyelids to give a smoothed and rejuvenated appearance. This is a very delicate operation that is best performed by a top specialist in eyelid surgery.

What is the recovery like after a lower eyelid surgery procedure?
Recovery after lower eyelid surgery is typically mild. Dr. Chandler has patients use cool, icy compresses for the first 24 hours after lower blepharoplasty. There is virtually no pain and Dr. Chandler does not typically prescribe any narcotic pain medications for lower eyelid surgery. The lower eyelids and cheeks typically get bruised and can be somewhat black and blue. It is rare to have complete “black eyes.” Bruises and swelling improve considerably within a week or so and usually resolve by 2 weeks after surgery. There can be some mild blurry vision for a few days after the procedure due to swelling of the mucous membrane of the eye which improves over the first week or so. Dr. Chandler will recommend an ointment that is safe for use around the eyes and helps with the healing.
Where is lower blepharoplasty eyelid surgery performed?
Dr. Chandler performs lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for his Philadelphia and South New Jersey patients at an outpatient surgical center. Lower eyelid surgery is delicate and precise and for the safety and comfort of his patients Dr. Chandler prefers his patients are under anesthesia for the best outcomes. Patients undergo lower eyelid surgery as a same day outpatient procedure and patients return home the same day (no overnight stay needed). Dr. Chandler works closely with board-certified anesthesiologists and an amazing nursing staff to make sure his patients receive the very best care.
What is a cheek lift?
The lower eyelids flow into the upper cheeks. For this reason, Dr. Chandler can address some changes of the cheeks and mid-face when he performs lower blepharoplasty. Using a highly individualized technique, Dr. Chandler may perform a cheek lift during lower eyelid blepharoplasty for an enhanced cosmetic result. With age the corners of the eyes may sag and give a sad or depressed appearance. By performing a cheek-lift enhancing procedure the eyes and upper cheeks can be aesthetically improved, giving a much brighter, happy, alert appearance. Dr. Chandler’s results are often far more than can be achieved through basic, traditional lower eyelid blepharoplasty!

Patient Testimonials

“Love my Eyelid Surgery with Dr. Chandler”

I hated being asked everyday “I guess you didn’t sleep very well last night?”
Finally made up my mind that eyelid surgery had to be done. Researched and found great reviews about Dr. Chandler. When I met with Dr. Chandler he put me completely at ease, explained the surgery thoroughly, and I made the decision to go ahead. The best decision I ever made!
My upper blepharoplasty went great, easy quick recovery. A week later my sister saw me and said I looked fabulous. The surgery gave me a renewed confidence and I love my new look.”

“3 years later & it’s still great!”

Came to Dr. Chandler and my eyelids were very very droopy. Dr. Chandler made me look like I was awake again!! I always looked like I was about to go to sleep. You couldn’t see the color of my eyes at all. I was very impressed with his manner, the way he treated me and I was very pleased. Not one negative thing to say. It was not a painful surgery, I did get black and blue which eventually went away. It was so worth it to have Dr. Chandler help me. 3 years later and it’s still great!”
