Background: This Bay Area man had begun to notice a constant puffiness below his eyes that caused him to look chronically tired and unhappy. He was unsure of the best method for correcting this problem, so he scheduled a consultation with Dr. Mabrie. In this patient's consultation Dr. Mabrie evaluated his face to determine the cause of the problem before recommending lower blepharoplasty, a plastic surgery procedure in San Francisco to smooth out the lower eyelids.

Dr. Mabrie's Assessment: "Lower lid bags that develop beneath the eyes typically result from excess eyelid skin, pockets of fat underneath the skin, or a combination of both conditions. During our initial consultation, I noted that this man had an overall good skin tone, but enlarged pockets of fat gave him very defined bags that were an unwanted distraction and made him look tired. Many women and men with this condition choose to undergo an Oakland area eyelid surgery that removes that small fat pocket and smoothes the tissues below the eyes."

Procedure: This man received a lower lid blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. This surgical procedure is designed to remove the "bags" of fat and excess tissue from the lower eyelids, and typically requires only a small incision at the inner surface of the lower lid.

Follow-Up: Dr. Mabrie successfully removed the large bags beneath this man's eyes, re-emphasizing his eyes and giving a natural but dramatically smoother appearance to his upper cheeks. This procedure generally requires no external incision, which helps ensure an attractive result and fast recovery.
