Blepharoplasty, commonly referred to as eye bag removal, is where the excess skin and fat is removed from either the upper or lower eye lids, meaning that the eye lids are no longer hooded or droopy. This 1 hour procedure can leave patients with a new lease of life as eyes appear open, rejuvenated and overall youthful.
Eye bag removal is often carried out as a day case procedure but this is subject to the individual’s needs. Upper and Lower eye bags can be operated on separately or together under general anaesthetic. If you choose lower lid surgery an incision is made under the lower lashes along the lash line or just inside the eyelid where excess tissue is then removed. With the upper eye bag removal an incision is made along the natural crease of the eyelid, surplus tissue is then taken away.
Attending your pre-arranged follow up appointments is extremely important for the clinic nurse to monitor healing after blepharoplasty and remove sutures between 7-14days. It is advised to wear dark glasses when outside for the first 7-14days as it will help protect the area from UV rays and yourself from touching the treated area as it must be kept clean and dry during this time.
MYA offer a 24hour emergency service line with one of our highly qualified nurses to assist with any medical concerns outside of the clinic opening hours.
Often droopy eyelids or puffiness under your eyes (eye bags) is hereditary or develops with age, and we know any cosmetic surgery takes a lot of thought and research. This is why MYA and our clinical team will provide you with all the information you will need to make an informed choice.
If you suffer from glaucoma or dry eyes you must consult an eye specialist or ophthalmologist prior to your consultation with a MYA surgeon. For more information on pricing for this procedure, click here.
