As you age the skin around your eyes loses its elasticity. You may develop deepening crease on the lower lids and loose folds of skin on the upper eyelids. As well as loose skin, the muscles in this area relax so that any fat bulges forward, giving a haggard appearance.
Eye bag removal, also known as blepharoplasty, is an operation to remove the surplus skin and/or fat from around your eyes. This process tightens the skin to create a flatter more youthful appearance. Eye bag removal can be carried out on the upper, lower or both eyelids
A local anaesthetic may be all that is administered when upper blepharoplasty is performed alone. Mild pink scarring will be visible along the inner of the lower lash and socket line to the upper lid, but this will fade in time.
Typically stitches are removed a week after cosmetic surgery. Post cosmetic surgery swelling and bruising can be disguised with dark glasses during the recovery period. Most individuals return to work within 1-2 weeks after cosmetic surgery.
