My name is Shi Jing, I sometimes work part-time in web and TV commercials, but every shoot, I feel sorry for the makeup artist, because of my protruding eye bags, which also make my dark circles particularly noticeable, and eye bags are hard to cover with makeup. Even sometimes, the director stops the shoot because my eye bags are too obvious, needing the makeup artist's help to cover up, honestly speaking, it's really a blow to my confidence on set.

A past advertisement
made me realize
the severity of my eye bag problem

One advertisement work made me realize the severity of my eye bag problem, because of the lighting that day, my eye bags were more pronounced. In post-production, to cover my eye bags, my face was blurred excessively, making me look very foggy and unattractive. This experience made me think that refining my appearance is also part of being professional as an actor, which led me to decisively go for Blepharoplasty!

5-in-1 Invisible Scar Blepharoplasty key points image

The "5-in-1 Invisible Scar Blepharoplasty" combines the advantages of both internal and external approaches to directly target the fat layer, removing it and filling the tear troughs. It addresses 5 major eye area concerns in one procedure, including removing eye bags, filling tear troughs, improving dark circles, smoothing under-eye wrinkles, and enhancing firmness.

Since the incisions are hidden inside the eyelid, there are virtually no visible scars post-surgery, allowing for an almost immediate return to normal activities without affecting daily routines. The recovery period is about 5-7 days.

How to Determine
If You Have Eye Bags?

True Eye Bags

There are 2 types of true eye bags: congenital and those commonly seen in middle-aged or older individuals due to tear troughs, fat accumulation, or loosening of lower eyelid structures, causing orbital fat to bulge and form true eye bags.

The most obvious characteristics of true eye bags are looseness and wrinkles under the lower eyelids and bulging of orbital fat, appearing in a bag-like form.

False Eye Bags

False eye bags can be caused by 5 factors, including irregular sleep patterns, excessive water intake before bed, consuming spicy food, overuse of eyes, or excessive crying leading to temporary swelling and the formation of false eye bags.

The most obvious feature of false eye bags is enlargement of the orbicularis oculi muscle, but the skin and muscle have not loosened.

Is It Love Bands or Eye Bags?
How to Distinguish

Love Bands

Love Bands

Love bands are part of the orbicularis oculi muscle, not very noticeable when not smiling, but clearly visible when smiling due to muscle contraction.

Eye Bags

Eye Bags

Eye bags are the bulging of orbital fat below the love bands, not due to an increase in fat volume but due to the relaxation of muscle tissue, forcing the fat to protrude.

What Are the Types of Eye Bags?

Edematous Eye Bags

Edematous Eye Bags Illustration

Edematous eye bags, also known as bubble eyes, usually result from staying up late, drinking too much water before bed, or consuming too much salt causing eye swelling. The sodium in salt retains body water, soaking the eyes and leading to edema. They often appear in the morning and usually improve within a few hours.

Genetic Eye Bags

Genetic Eye Bags Illustration

Genetic eye bags typically occur in younger people and are mostly due to congenital "excessive fat accumulation" leading to protruding eye sockets and forming eye bags.

Aging Eye Bags

Aging Eye Bags Illustration

Aging eye bags develop from aging, skin aging around the eyes, and loosening, allowing the orbital fat to slide down and bulge outward, forming sagging and protruding eye bags.

Pre-Surgery Instructions
for Blepharoplasty

    1
  • Stop using steroids, aspirin, and other anticoagulants within one week prior to the surgery.
  • 2
  • Avoid ginkgo, ginseng, fish oil, and other blood-thinning medications or foods within one week before surgery.
  • 3
  • Refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol one week before surgery as they can affect wound healing.
  • 4
  • If sedation anesthesia is chosen, start fasting (including water) 8 hours before surgery.
  • 5
  • Please inform the doctor in advance if you have keloid scars, are prone to thick scars, have allergies, or have any special diseases.
  • 6
  • Do not apply nail polish, makeup, skincare products, or wear contact lenses on the day of surgery. If you have heavy eyelashes, please remove them in advance.
  • 7
  • Remove all metal objects from your body (earrings, rings, necklaces, watches, etc.) on the day of the surgery.

ATTENTION
Post-Surgery Instructions
for Blepharoplasty

For patients who undergo external incision surgery, avoid getting the wound wet before stitches are removed; temporarily wipe to clean the face instead. If the wound gets wet during showering, shampooing, or washing the face, follow the doctor's instructions for wound care. For the first three days, enhance icing of the wound. After three days, switch to warm compresses for about 10 to 15 minutes each time, with an hour interval between sessions. The frequency of icing depends on personal convenience; try to ice the wound as much as possible when time allows.

Avoid smoking, alcohol, or consuming spicy foods like chili peppers. Minimize consumption of coffee and tea. Drink less water before bedtime and avoid consuming fruits with high water content to prevent swelling the next day.

Avoid wearing contact lenses, excessive head movements such as looking up or down, emotional agitation, or lifting heavy objects within 2 weeks to prevent wound swelling and bleeding. Additionally, avoid engaging in vigorous activities for a month after surgery, such as playing basketball, cycling, swimming, etc.

FAQ
About Blepharoplasty

The surgery usually takes about one to two hours. Patients are advised to ice the operated area well on the day of the surgery and rest and ice for at least two more days. Stitches are removed one week post-surgery, and swelling typically subsides by 80 to 90% within a week, looking very natural after a month.

Intensify icing for the first three days post-surgery to reduce bleeding, swelling, and pain. Generally, continue icing after that, as the eye area is thin and susceptible to increased bleeding chances with too early heat application.

No stitch removal is needed for internal incision surgeries; for external incision surgeries, stitches can be removed five to seven days post-operation.

Internal incision surgeries leave no scars, while external incision surgeries may result in a faint red line below the eyelashes, which fades and becomes less noticeable after three to six months.

This result occurs when the doctor suspends the retro-orbicularis oculus fat and orbicularis oculi muscle during surgery for a significant improvement. There's no need to worry, as the eye shape typically returns to normal within half a month to a month.

The swelling usually lasts about a week, and it will look natural after a month.

The duration varies from person to person and by method, but generally lasts between ten to twenty years.
