Frequently, my Houston lower eyelid surgery patients will ask how long treatment for their lower eyelid bags will last. Lower eyelid bags are due to fat that has pooched out over time or was there even during childhood. If performed properly and not overdone, this fat should not return over time. During lower eyelid blepharoplasty, the lower eyelid skin is tightened. As we mature, we lose laxity in our skin and this lower eyelid skin will become loose again. This may take 10-15 years after lower eyelid surgery. The bottom line is, your eyelids will still look better at this point than they did before surgery.
