I am a 39-year-old male and have very heavy, full eyelids as does my mother and several of her relatives. I would like to have a eyelid surgery in Austin. I was wondering if I should wait until I am a bit older to get more bang for my buck in later years or does it make a difference?
It is not uncommon for patients to have bags under their eyes at a relatively early age. This condition is usually associated with an unfavorable relationship between the anterior position of the eyeball and the inferior bony orbital rim. Oftentimes this can be corrected by augmenting the orbital rim rather than reducing fat within the orbit. At other times fatty prominence within the orbit can be reduced and utilized to fill the orbital groove. Timing of the procedure is dependent upon the individual and may be recommended at any point in which the condition becomes significant enough that it warrants surgical intervention from the patient’s perspective.
