What causes puffy under eye circles to form?

This is, indeed, the million-dollar question. The answer to this question differs from patient to patient, and the answer in your case will directly influence the type of treatment that will be best suited to your case. Puffy under eye circles can result as a result of:

  • Loss of elasticity in the skin over time
  • Migration of fat from the eye socket to under the eyes
  • Loss of volume in the facial skin in the undereye region
  • Sagging of the cheeks
  • Poor sleeping habits
  • Poor diet
  • Smoking
  • Overexposure to the sun and other elements
  • Allergic reactions

Sometimes, under eye circles can be traced back to a single primary cause; however, in most cases, multiple causes are to blame.

Treatment for Under Eye Circles

During your consultation with Dr. Mesna, you and he will discuss your lifestyle and medical history. His goal will be to provide you with the most conservative treatment available considering your particular circumstances.

In some cases, it may be possible to reduce the appearance of under eye bags by making simple lifestyle changes in combination with a regimen of clinical-strength skin care products. At Mesna Plastic Surgery, we feature several lines of advanced skin care products that are proven to yield excellent skin rejuvenation results, including Clarisonic®, iS Clinical®, NEOCUTIS®, Revision®, Vivierskin®, and Vivite®.

In cases in which under eye circles are the result of a lack of volume in the facial skin, Dr. Mesna may recommend injectable dermal filler therapy. Injectable fillers such as Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® add fullness to the skin with little risk of side effects. Although the results are temporary, treatment can safely be repeated as necessary.

If surgical treatment is recommended, then lower blepharoplasty can be performed. During lower blepharoplasty, discreet incisions are made in the skin of the lower eyelid or inside the lower eyelid. Through these incisions, excess fat is removed, and the remaining fat is artfully repositioned to create more flattering contours. Patients emerge from surgery looking younger, healthier, and more alert.
