Having bags or dark circles beneath your eyes can make anyone self-conscious about getting older. If you’re trying to find a way to get your skin looking young again, Dr. John Lee’s Philadelphia eyelid surgery practice can evaluate your cosmetic needs and help you achieve a more youthful appearance for the space around your eyes. Bags under the eyes can be caused by a number of different factors, among them:
  • Age
  • Genetic tendency toward discoloration of the skin around the eyes
  • Sinus issues, including allergies and hay fever
  • Smoking
  • Prolonged exposure to sunlight
If any of these issues have caused unsightly patches to form under your eyes, Dr. Lee could rejuvenate this portion of your face through lower eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty. This procedure involves removing excess fat and skin in the eyelid area, then tightening the skin for a younger appearance free from blemishes. If you’d like to learn more about how Philadelphia eyelid surgeon John Lee, M.D., FACS, might be able to help you get rid of bags beneath the eyes, please contact us or call 610-789-6701 today to make an appointment. Dr. Lee proudly sees patients in or around Philadelphia and Scranton, Pennsylvania.
