Question: Will a facelift improve malar bags?
Answer: Facelifting in general is good at improving the mid face appearance. Large bags around the eyes may not be improved with a facelift procedure alone. Some other technique may be needed to improve the malar bags. It is important to diagnose the major problem causing the malar bags. There may be excess skin and there may also be ptosis or drooping of some of the underlying tissues which may need to be addressed.
