Eye bag surgery, also known as eye bag removal, focuses on the lower eyelid, where excess fat and sagging skin, often referred to as fat herniation, can be a concern.
Causes and procedures for under eye bags
Bags under the eyes can affect women of all ages, and their presence may be due to genetics or the natural ageing process. Under eye bags can often be the result of the weakness of the septum and muscle and not excess fat! The ideal procedure is to carry out surgery where the fat is repositioned, the septum tightened, the eye muscle plication (tightened) and some excess skin removed.
Benefits of lower eyelid blepharoplasty for women

Septal reset surgery for a perfect balance
As part of our blepharoplasty procedures, we perform a surgery known as ‘septal reset’ in which excess fats are not removed but repositioned to achieve a long-lasting, transforming outcome. Many of our patients combine upper and lower eyelid surgery to achieve the most pleasing results.
Note: There is an accepted technique where the removal of fat is an option, although at the Wentworth Clinic we discourage this procedure as it may result in sunken eyes within 5-10 years time.
