Upper Body Portrait of Young Female SmilingWe all know the old saying, “The eyes are the window to the soul.” The eyes say so much about a person. They can tell you about their age, their health, or about the life they’ve lived. Dark under eye circles and deep lines around the eyes can send a message to others of unhappiness or that you are just plain tired – even when happy and well rested. When Raleigh men and women have deep tear troughs, also called lower eyelid bags, they are left with a sunken appearance in their lower eyelid area that creates a dark shadow and makes them look older than they are. There is nothing more frustrating than having a great night’s sleep only to look in the mirror and see someone who looks tired. One can watch late-night TV and see many home remedies and cures for this condition which generally tells you two things: its very common and none of those products work like they say they do!  Keep reading to learn how blepharoplasty at Zenn Plastic Surgery can correct deep tear troughs and lower eyelid bags.

What Are Tear Troughs, And Why, Oh Why Do I Have Them?

Tear troughs are the areas under your lower eyelids extending from the corner of the inner eye, down along the nose, and out toward the upper cheek. When exaggerated by fat and skin collection over time, they give a hollow look and under eye circles. Tear troughs can only be covered with cosmetics for so long. And men do not even have the option of make-up. When makeup fails, it is time for a more permanent correction through blepharoplasty, or eyelift surgery.

Blepharoplasty To Correct Deep Tear Troughs

Lower blepharoplasty, or lower eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure used to provide long lasting results for Raleigh men and women who are suffering from deep tear troughs and eyelid bags. This procedure can roll back the hands of time and leave you with a rejuvenated and rested look. When performing a lower blepharoplasty, Dr. Zenn will remove the bags altogether, either removing fat alone or additional skin if present. Scars in this area of the body can heal imperceptibly. Removing extra fat and skin in the lower eyelids will get rid of the shadow effect that creates dark circles and leaves your eyes and face looking more youthful.
