Under-eye fat pockets may appear at a younger age in the lower eyelid area. They may be hereditary, and appear around the age of 30 or sometimes sooner. Usually there are 3 bags: the inner, the middle and the outer bag.
The treatment requires a surgical procedure. A lower blepharoplasty is performed.
- When the quality of the skin is optimal, the scar is completely invisible since it is hidden inside the eye. It is specific for hereditary early bags. When the treatment is administered on patients between 30 and 40 years old, the skin is tonic enough and marks can be avoided.
- If the skin is stretched, a scar will occur and be situated under the eye, at the base of the lashes. The final result will show an invisible scar.
When eye bags begin to appear, hyaluronic acid injections can be performed below the bags in order to correct the tired aspect of the glance by reducing the hollow situated below the pockets.
A pocket, also called hernia, may appear in the inner corner of the eye, in the upper eyelid. This fatty pocket appears when the tissues supporting the eye weaken over time.
Only surgery is able to treat inner pockets. This fatty pocket is usually removed with a blepharoplasty, which will allow removal of the excess skin in the upper eyelid and may likely correct a potential ptosis.
