The Procedure Of Eye Bag Removal

Thinking about getting your eye bags removed but want to know the Procedure Of Eye Bag Removal

Wouldn’t it be great if you can go into surgery knowing what will happen, well now you can know the procedure of eye bag removal.

The majority of people who get eye bag removal surgery are of an older age and this is simply because as they have aged their eye bags, so their upper and lower eyelids, have become saggy and are affecting their appearance and sight. This is down to the fact they may not be able to apply makeup to their eyes due to the droopiness of them and because the lids sag so much it is affecting what they see.

The procedure of eye bag removal can be costly but is totally worth it from the end results that you will receive, it will also help you get your life back on track if you do have an issue with your vision.

The procedure of removing the eye bags is pretty straightforward, but then again I have been doing this for 15 years.


The Procedure..

Before the surgical consultation you will have already discussed which area and part of the eye bag will be removed, you will know in advance what is going to happen and what to expect. If you are fortunate enough to have the procedure under a local anaesthetic then you will be able to leave the same day.

During the surgery your surgeon will make incisions along the natural lines in your eyelids or below your lower eyelashes, this is so any fine scars will be in the natural folds of your eyes and won’t be noticeable. The excess fat and skin is then carefully removed and the incisions closed. Sometimes the incisions are made inside the eyelids, this is a good thing for you as the patient because you will be left with no visible scars.

After the surgery is complete your eyes will be swollen and bruised and you may have small strips of sterile tape applied over your stitches. You surgeon will have applied ointment to help stop your eyes from drying out and to prevent infection.

Like any operation there is always a risk of infection or side effects so it is important to find out these risks or side effects from your surgeon before leaving the clinic and ensuring you follow their instructions to avoid any complications.

Hopefully this has gave you as much information as you needed to know about the procedure and can twist your arm into giving me a visit seen as I am a professional plastic surgeon in Manchester.
