Will a blepharoplasty help to completely remove the bags

Question:

I’m 54 years old and I’ve had dark bags under my eyes for a long time now. Will a blepharoplasty help to completely remove the bags?

Answer:

Darkening of the skin under the eyes can be due to shadowing from overlying fat, or pigmentation of the skin from a variety of causes.  Often, addressing the fat during surgery to smooth out the bags will eliminate the shadowing effect, providing an acceptable appearance.  However, in patients who have persistent darkening under the eyes, I will offer phototherapy treatments to treat the pigment problem.
