What is the procedure for eye bag surgery?

The most common procedure is by making an external incision just below the eyelashes when performing lower blepharoplasty known as the transcutaneous incision which means “through the skin”.  An incision is made in the skin just below the eyelashes. The skin is lifted, exposing the membrane that holds the three lower-lid fat pads. This membrane is penetrated, exposing the fat pads. Precisely the right amount of fat is removed from the lids to allow for a flat lower lid. We do not want bulging fat, nor do we want a sunken lid. Finally, a 2- to 4-millimeter strip of excess skin is removed.
This approach can be advantageous if there is sagging of the skin and the orbicularis oculi muscle (the muscle which supports the eyelid). A well-placed incision can be virtually invisible when fully healed. Patients with darker skin may experience darker pigmentation (hyperpigmentation) along the incision line.
Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is a type of lower eyelid surgery which is performed without any external incisions. This procedure uses the internal incision known as the transconjunctival approach (from inside the eyelid). The procedure is similar to transcutaneous blepharoplasty, but the fat pockets are removed from inside the eyelid. With this method, the scar will not be noticeable, even when inspected closely.
