Expert Removal of Eye Bags and Mounds on Top of the Cheek
Are you self-conscious about the bags under your eyes or the folds of skin that appears as mounds on the tops of the cheeks (malar festoons)? This condition often gives men and women a tired and “worn out” looking appearance.
Dr. Greg 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 eye bag removal 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 second technique that safely heats and shrinks the tissue. This approach not only removes the underlying excess tissue and fat that causes the eye bag, but also helps to shrink the tissue over time to improve the under eye skin tone and quality.

What Are Eye Bags and Malar Festoons
While malar festoons and eye bags can often be mistaken for one another, there are several differences that are distinct. In fact, many people aren’t familiar with the term 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. Festoons are typically caused by a swelling within the skin that protrudes fat in the lower eyelid. Festoons are made worse by the age-related loss of bone and fat below the muscle of the lower eyelid.
The development of eye bags is due to fat protruding through to the lower eyelid as a result of aging. While eye bags are only seen in the lower eyelid region, malar festoons generally develop on the cheek with a minor presence in the lower eyelid area.
Are You A Candidate For Eyebags And Malar Festoons Surgery?
You may be a candidate for eye bags and malar festoons surgery if you are bothered by any of the following conditions:
- Sagging under the lower eyelid eye
- Excess amount of skin in the lower eyelid/upper cheek area
- Swelling within the skin that protrudes fat in the lower eyelid
- Folds and mounds that develop on the cheek
Dr. Chernoff and his expert team can help you decide if an eye bags and/or malar festoon procedure is right for you. During your consultation, we will evaluate the skin under your eyes and at the top of your cheeks. If you are a candidate for lower eyelid bag or malar festoon removal, computer projected imaging is offered to show a result you could expect from the procedure.
