What is Eye Bag Removal Surgery (Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty)?

Eye Bag Surgery, or “Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty," is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the lower eyelids or eye bags. When performed correctly, this procedure can revive the appearance and make the patient seem more youthful for up to 10 years. While there are some excellent non-surgical options for mild cases, such as LASER and Tixel, Eye Bag surgery is the most effective way to treat moderate to severe eye bags.

How Does Lower Lid Blepharoplasty
Procedure Work?

Eye bag removal surgery smooths the under-eye area by removing excess skin, bulging fat, and loose muscle from the lower eyelids. To do so, we make a tiny cut, which is either hidden in the natural lower lid crease or inside the lower lid, in the case of a “Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty.” The surgeon removes or repositions unwanted tissues before closing the incision with fine stitches. The skin can also be treated by laser resurfacing or a chemical peel to help tighten the skin of the lower lid. Dr. Sabrina, a leading eye surgeon in London can give you the results you’re looking for. During the consultation, you can talk about your goals and view Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty before and after pictures of similar cases to help you understand the process.

Patient Questions About Eye Bag Surgery or lower lid blepharoplasty

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of Eye-Bag Surgery or “Lower-Lid Blepharoplasty”?

We offer different types of eye bag removal surgery in the UK.

The first method is scarless; no visible cut is seen because the incision is made from the inside of the eyelid. The tissues are then removed or repositioned, giving the under-eye area a smoother appearance. This is an ideal approach if you have tight, non-wrinkled skin beneath the eyes, which is often the case with younger patients, though it may also be appropriate for mature patients when combined with a “skin pinch” or LASER resurfacing.

The second approach, which is not scarless, is better suited to correct excess wrinkled skin and involves a small incision being made on the outside of the eyelid. This allows the removal or repositioning of the fat while improving the appearance of saggy or severely wrinkled skin.

What is the recovery time for Eye Bag Surgery or a Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty?

After a scarless Lower-Lid Blepharoplasty, patients usually recover within 2 weeks and can return to work quickly. However, after the non-scarless option, patients can experience bruising for 2 weeks, requiring 4-12 weeks to recover completely. Normally, the stitches are visible for the first week; once they have been removed, a faint scar is visible.

The scar may seem thickened and red for 6-12 weeks, becoming almost invisible after that period. A thickened or reddened scar can be improved with a scar remodelling gel, and our specialist-recommended skincare kit, designed to aid your recovery.

What are the risks of Eyebag Surgery?

While Eyebag Surgery is a safe operation, there are risks associated with it. Some common risks include:

Infection: This is very rare; however, occasionally, the stitches may become infected or inflamed. This can be swiftly settled with oral and topical antibiotics.

Scarring: Generally, scars are hidden in the skin fold or the inner part of the lid. Stitches are normally visible for the first week, but a faint scar is visible when they are removed. Although the scar may seem thickened and red for 6 to 12 weeks, it will gradually become almost invisible after that period. While most scars heal well,  scar remodelling gel can improve the appearance of a thickened or reddened scar. However, the treatment needs to be continued for several months to have a good result.

Large bruise or haematoma: This can be minimised by regular use of ice packs, avoiding heavy exercise for 2 weeks after surgery, and stopping Aspirin and other Anticoagulants 2 weeks before surgery. If you do experience a haematoma, you may have to undergo another surgery to remove the blood clot and have your stitches redone. 

Theoretical risk to vision: There is a very small chance of optic nerve damage from eyelid surgery due to undetected infection or bleeding, though the risk is much lower than that of a typical car ride.

Hollow appearance: This is rare but can occur, usually when too much fat has been removed.

Temporary poor blink: Generally, blinking returns to normal within 12 weeks.

Sagging of the lower lid: This can happen as a result of scarring between the layers of the lid or the inadvertent removal of excess skin. It can alter the shape of the lower lid and even cause watery eyes. Occasionally, this may require corrective surgery with either a skin flap/graft or a midface lift.
