A new technique for the treatment of palpebral bags is presented. The technique consists of returning fat to the orbital cavity and retaining it by means of a continuous suture (with nonabsorbable filament) of the capsulopalpebral fascia to the periosteum of the lower orbital rim. The anatomic basis for the technique, after examination of the relevant literature and dissection on fresh cadavers, is analyzed. The procedure followed and results obtained are described in detail. Evaluation of the results suggests to the authors that this might be the method to be applied in the majority of patients.
