    What is Eye Bag Removal & Eyelid Surgery?

    There are many signs of ageing, one area many people are concerned with is the eye area. Excess skin in the upper eyelid can create folds and wrinkles, excess skin in the lower eyelid can create the appearance of bags under the eyes and look of permanent tiredness. There are many creams and lotions available which claim to temporarily relieve these symptoms, however a more permanent option is to consider a surgical correction procedure. Eyebag & Eyelid Surgery, Eyebag Removal Surgery or Blepharoplasty is a unique procedure.

    Upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery are known as blepharoplasty and involve the removal of excess skin from the eyelid area or eyebag area respectively.


    Surgery ( Eye Bag & Eyelid Surgery or Eye bag Removal Surgery)

    Eye Bag & Eyelid Surgery or Eye bag Removal Surgery or Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids, or both if necessary. Your eyesight will be assessed before surgery along with your ability to produce tears. During blepharoplasty surgery a local anaesthetic is usually used along with a sedative.

    During surgery, incisions are made around the skin of the eyelid which loosens the skin and muscle. This is then removed with further cutting. Fine sutures are used to close the incisions leaving fine lines across the eyelid. These normally heal and fade to very fine, almost indistinguishable marks within three months. The surgery usually lasts between one to two hours. In order to reduce inflammation and discomfort an ophthalmic cream is applied to the eyelid area underneath dressings which are soaked in a cold saline solution.

    Later Progress

    The area around your eye will be swollen for around a week and you may find your eyes are sensitive to light for a few weeks. Other side effects include watering eyes and visual fluctuations which should pass within a few weeks. After this time you should be able to see the results of your surgery, with your younger fresher appearance.

    You will usually be able to return to your day to day life within eight to ten days. After your blepharoplasty surgery it is vital that you follow the aftercare instructions given to you by the clinic and make sure that you attend all follow up appointments.

    Patient Testimonials

    Jocelyn Ward

    Jocelyn underwent eyebag removal surgery at Nu Cosmetic Clinic. She talks about why she decided to go for surgery and what impact the surgery had in her personal life. She talks about her interactions with the Patient Coordinator and Surgeon. She gives a detailed account of her experience at Nu Cosmetic Clinic beginning with her free consultation, followed by the surgery and finally the aftercare received.
    How long does the procedure take ?
    Depending on the complexity of the procedure, the surgery normally takes about 90 minutes, not including time in recovery.
    Are the results permanent ?
    The results of eye bag correction normally last for about five years. After this, the skin will begin to sag again, however, they will always have a better appearance than if you had never had the surgery.
    When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities ?
    We recommend that people take a week off work following the procedure (more if your job is particularly physical). Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and intense exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks after your surgery. Bruising may remain for a few weeks after surgery, so you may wish to consider this when booking time off work.
    Are there any alternatives to this surgery ?
    The only way to fully remove upper or lower eye bags is by surgery. Some forms of non surgical procedures may help to lift the eye area (for example wrinkle smoothing around the eyes) however the effect will not be substantial enough to remove eye bags.
    Can I combine this procedure with other surgery ?
    Yes, you can combine this procedure with other facial procedures. You can discuss this in full at your free consultation.
