Lower eyelid bags, also known as under-eye bags or puffiness, are a common concern related to aging. Dr. Kian Eftekhari at the Eyelid Center of Utah offers comprehensive solutions to address the causes and treatments for lower eyelid bags.


  • Aging and Lower Eyelid Bags: As we age, the skin around our eyes undergoes changes, including a reduction in collagen and elastin production. This natural aging process can lead to a loss of skin elasticity, causing the lower eyelids to sag and form bags. The fat pads beneath the eyes may also shift, contributing to the appearance of puffiness. Dr. Kian Eftekhari, with his expertise in oculoplastic surgery, specializes in addressing these age-related changes to restore a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
  • Genetics and Lower Eyelid Bags: Genetics play a significant role in determining the structural characteristics of our face, including the tendency to develop lower eyelid bags. If your family has a history of under-eye puffiness or bags, there’s a higher likelihood that you may experience similar concerns. Dr. Eftekhari’s tailored approach takes into account both genetic predispositions and individual facial anatomy, ensuring personalized treatment plans for optimal results.
  • Lifestyle Factors and Lower Eyelid Bags: Certain lifestyle factors can exacerbate the development of lower eyelid bags. Chronic stress, inadequate sleep, and poor dietary habits may contribute to overall facial aging, impacting the delicate skin around the eyes. Additionally, factors like smoking and sun exposure can accelerate collagen breakdown and skin aging. Dr. Kian Eftekhari educates patients on adopting healthy lifestyle practices to complement surgical or non-surgical interventions for lasting results.

Surgical Treatments for Lower Eyelid Bags

Lower Blepharoplasty

Dr. Kian Eftekhari specializes in lower blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure designed to address lower eyelid bags. During this procedure, excess skin and fat are carefully removed, restoring a smoother and more youthful appearance.


Canthoplasty, another surgical option, focuses on enhancing the outer corner of the eyes, addressing both lower eyelid bags and improving overall eye aesthetics.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Dermal Fillers

For those seeking non-surgical alternatives, Dr. Eftekhari may recommend dermal fillers. These injectable treatments can help fill hollow areas around the eyes, reducing the appearance of bags and restoring volume.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is a non-invasive technique that improves skin texture and tightens the lower eyelid area. It can be effective in reducing mild to moderate lower eyelid bags.

If you are considering addressing lower eyelid bags, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kian Eftekhari at the Eyelid Center of Utah. During the consultation, he will assess your unique situation, discuss treatment options, and create a personalized plan tailored to your needs.
