Bags, sagging, dark spots, and drooping are all common concerns that develop under the eye. There are many reasons why under eye issues arise; some are due to stress, lack of sleep, or lifestyle. Most however are genetic and inherited from our parents and side effects of aging, creating wrinkling, fat prominence, and a sagging lid.
For most patients, puffy or full eyelids and under-eye areas are part of their genetic background. In most cases, there is a combination of reasons why the under-eye may require correction or rejuvenation.
Thankfully, there are just as many treatment options to treat or correct under-eye concerns. Redness, puffiness, and even dark bags beneath the eyes may be improved or camouflaged with non-surgical treatments. For more extensive correction, cosmetic surgical procedures are available. We offer many different non-invasive as well as surgical solutions for under eye correction at the Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids.
Common Under Eye Concerns
If you’ve ever had a sleepless night or had a stressful week at work or school, you’ve probably developed some dark circles under your eyes.
While these tend to go away with some R & R, they are recurring for many patients, and some may have other issues altogether. Common under-eye concerns that cause you to appear aged or tired can address at the Bengtson Center include:
Our facility offers many customizable treatments to address these concerns and other aesthetic or functional issues related to the under-eye.
Depending on your situation, our services range from skincare solutions like cosmetics to injectable fillers and fat transfers to surgical solutions like a facelift or blepharoplasty. In many cases, under-eye procedures can be corrected with minimally-invasive treatments such as laser treatments or fillers. For more extensive correction or treatment of pockets of fat or noticeably saggy or loose skin, cosmetic surgery may produce better and more permanent results.
At our facility in Grand Rapids, we offer procedures to accommodate all patients and their unique needs. Plastic surgery is an excellent way to achieve dramatic, long-lasting solutions to aesthetic concerns under the eye.
It is a big commitment both aesthetically and financially and can require patients to take time away from their responsibilities to recovery. This may not be ideal for everyone. For our surgical and non-surgical treatments, patients will have to be in good general health, be non-smokers or ready to quit, and have realistic expectations for their results.
If you have puffy under-eyes or lower eyelids, whether it is due to genetics, aging, weight fluctuations, or lifestyle factors, blepharoplasty can help to address this with excellent results.
Also known as eyelid surgery, sometimes specified as upper or lower blepharoplasty depending on the target area, blepharoplasty is a delicate procedure that should only be performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. This procedure’s benefits include a more youthful and alert appearance with smoother skin in the under-eye area.
If skincare and cosmetic solutions are not enough to help deliver the result of your desire, our non-surgical solutions may be a better option.
Patients who have recessed, sunken eyes, for example, can see success with injectable fillers and fat injections, as they can provide volume to these areas. Patients who want to address the loss of collagen or puffiness can try laser resurfacing or customize an anti-aging facial treatment. In addition, lasers can be used to treat prominent veins under the eyes. During your consultation with Dr. Bengtson, you will be able to discuss your options and set up a regimen that will help naturally improve the appearance and condition of your skin over time.
Finding a plastic surgeon you can trust for delicate procedures can make a significant difference in your experience with facial enhancements.
At our facility in Grand Rapids, Dr. Bengtson and his team of dedicated professionals work diligently to provide all our patients with a luxurious level of care and attention.
