FAST and Effective Way to Wake Up Tired Eyes

Under eye bags caused by heredity, age and gravity can be unsightly. When the unavoidable effects of time create unwelcome under eye bags, Dr. Norman H. Rappaport is here to help.

Through the use of both injectable fillers and surgical procedures, Dr. Rappaport can get you looking like your best self again. If under eye bags are impairing your vision or simply making you unhappy with your physical appearance, numerous options are available through Houston Center for Plastic Surgery to rectify the issue.

If you have lived your whole life with hereditary eye bags, then you are probably all too familiar with the plethora of products out there targeted to “cure” that sagging under the eyes. If you’re tired of products that simply do not work or sick of having to layer makeup to hide your imperfections, Dr. Rappaport has both surgical and nonsurgical options that can address your concerns directly and permanently.

Injectable Fillers

The appearance of puffy under eye bags are caused by the rapid breakdown of cheek tissue as the face ages. While the rest of your facial tissue may slowly begin to sag, fatty tissue under the eye can remain behind. The sagging in the rest of your face can make the delicate skin and tissue underneath the eyes appear much more prominent and create those unsightly bags.

By using injectable fillers or fat, Dr. Rappaport can restore subtle volume underneath the eyes creating a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Smooth formulations containing hyaluronic acid are typically used to fill out the “tear trough” area below the eyes minimizing the appearance of dark circles in addition to bags. Injectable fillers offer a fast and simple way to refresh and rejuvenate the eyes and surrounding area without the need for surgery.

Dermal filler appointments are very quick and can give you instant results with no downtime. That’s why they are often referred to as “lunchtime” treatments. The use of injectable treatments for fast and affordable results have skyrocketed in recent years due to their instant and satisfying results. Dr. Rappaport can discuss whether injectable fillers are the right option to help you produce a more youthful appearance around the eyes.

Injectable fillers produce quick results, but your new look will be temporary. To create lasting results, routine appointments will be necessary to sustain the look you want and keep your face looing young and revitalized.


If you are seeking a more permanent solution to rejuvenate your eyes and get rid of bags, plastic surgery may be a better option for you. Dr. Rappaport will meet with you to discuss if blepharoplasty, otherwise known as an eyelid lift, will help you meet your aesthetic goals. While blepharoplasty typically involves lifting the upper eye to reduce droopy upper eyelids, it can also be beneficial for those seeking to eliminate under-eye bags. Blepharoplasty is a quick procedure with a recovery time of around two weeks.

After you are administered general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, according to your preference, Dr. Rappaport will perform the procedure and get you home the same day as your surgery. By removing excess skin and either reducing or transferring fatty tissues from below the eye, you can revive your youthful appearance or eliminate the hereditary eye bags that have always plagued you.

During the procedure, Dr. Rappaport will make small incisions inside the eyelid, along the lash line or in the natural creases of the eye so that visible and obvious scarring will not be an issue. Blepharoplasty yields permanent results, so you can enjoy your refreshed appearance for many years to come.

Recovery Following Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is an ideal option for those looking to remove under eye bags with minimal discomfort and recovery time involved. Within a week or two, you will be back to your regular routine, sporting a refreshed appearance and greater confidence in how you look.

The surgery will result in minor bruising and swelling but is typically less uncomfortable than patients expect. Makeup can be applied a few days after surgery to cover up post-operative bruising. Dr. Rappaport will advise you to restrict your physical exercise for up to three weeks following your procedure to ensure that your body has been given adequate time to heal.

If you are looking to get rid of under eye bags quickly, Dr. Rappaport has different options for you to consider that allow him to tailor your treatment to your precise needs and desired results. Injectable fillers and blepharoplasty are both quick options that yield a satisfying outcome with many patients. With his expertise backed by years of study and a long list of satisfied patients, Dr. Rappaport is your best option for achieving the look you desire.
