We 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 the life they've lived. Dark under-eye circles, deep lines, or deep tear troughs can convey unhappiness to others. Or that you are just plain tired – even when happy and well-rested.

When men and women have deep tear troughs, also called lower eyelid bags, they have 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: eye bags are very common, and none of those products work like they say they do! Read 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 loss of volume, extra fat, and skin collection over time, they give a hollow look and under-eye circles. Tear troughs can only be corrected with cosmetics to some degree. And men usually do not even have the option of makeup. 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 that provides long-lasting results for men and women 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, either removing fat alone or additional skin if present. He usually adds fat taken from the hip or abdominal area, to replace lost volume which helps to attain the more youthful, softer look. 

Scars in this area of the body can heal imperceptibly. Removing extra fat and skin in the lower eyelids will eliminate the shadow effect that creates dark circles and leaves your eyes and face looking more youthful.
