Are you self-conscious about the bags under your eye or malar festoons? Malar festoons and eyebags can result in a tired and “worn out” looking appearance. Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery can help you address these concerns to help you look rested and refreshed.
Dr. Chernoff has successfully improved over 10,000 under eye bags and malar festoons. He is an internationally recognized expert for his proprietary and minimally invasive laser technique. Depending on the severity of the bags and/or festoons, Dr. Chernoff will often use a combination approach that uses laser along with a 2nd technique that safely heats and shrinks the tissue. This approach not only removes the underlying excess tissue and fat that causes the eye bag and/or festoon, but also helps to shrink the tissue over time to improve the under eye skin tone and quality.
About Malar Festoons
Malar Festoons are a concern in which the lower eyelid appears damaged, causing folds that can result in mounds on the tops of the cheeks.
What is the difference between malar festoons and eyebags?
While malar festoons and eyebags can often be mistaken for one another, there are several differences that distinct the two. Festoons are typically caused by a swelling within the skin that protrudes fat in the lower eyelid. The development of eyebags is due to fat protruding through to the lower eyelid as a result of aging. While eyebags are only seen in the lower eyelid region, malar festoons generally develop on the cheek with a minor presence in the lower eyelid area.
