Eye Bag Surgery
Eye Bag surgery is a common general term for “Eyelid Surgery” or ‘Blepharoplasty’ to give it its medical name, is one of the most frequently carried out cosmetic surgical procedures due the life enhancing results this relatively straightforward procedure provides.
Eye Bag surgery is performed on eyes that have appearance of being tired. The most frequently complaint is ‘hooded’ uppers lids and ‘baggy’ lower lids. The objective of the procedure is to rejuvenate the face to give a more youthful and fresher appearance.
Eye Bag removal generally takes between one-to-two hours and can be performed under local anaesthetic and sedation or general anaesthetic depending on the preference of the patient.
The procedure on the upper eyelid is performed by making a small incision in the natural folds of the eyelid, in the crease of the upper eyelid. For the removal of lower eye bags, a small incision is made below the lashes or behind the lower eyelid.
Following surgery you will be able to go home and eat and drink as normal. You will be required to revisit the clinic in about one week’s time for the removal of stitches and a general check over.
Scarring from eye bag removal is virtually indistinguishable due to the unique make-up and folds of the eyelids.
