Eye Bag Removal

We understand the frustration that eye bags can cause, giving you a tired or unwell look despite feeling well and getting plenty of sleep. Eye bag removal can treat the prolapse of fat beneath the eye, which can form in the lower, or in some cases, upper eyelids.

The ageing process can be a factor as to why they form, as can genetics or the “tear trough” underneath the eye bag creating a bulge. Me Clinic offers a range of eye area surgeries to help refresh one of the most critical sections of the face.

Surgical Warning: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

How can eye bag removal help me?

The surgical treatment for eye bag removal is known as a Blepharoplasty which can work to remove or reduce the fat under the eye. The procedure involves the removal of fat via an incision.

This relatively straightforward procedure requires local anaesthetic with a small incision made inside the lower eyelid or just below, the lower lash line, from which excess skin or fat is removed.

The benefits of this procedure include:

  • A less “tired” look
  • More confidence in your facial appearance
  • A younger fresher aesthetic

The areas surrounding the eyes have a significant impact on the overall look of your face. Many patients are surprised by the effects that eye bag removal can have on their overall facial aesthetic.

Alternate eye bag reduction strategies

The team at Me Clinic will always aim to find the best results for you, even if surgery is not the answer. In the case of eye bags, we recommend that you try some at-home methods of reduction before considering surgery.

Attempt to reduce or eliminate eye bags by trying the following;

  • The application of a cold compresses under the eyes left on for a few minutes
  • Adequate, high-quality sleep, helped along with a healthy diet and regular exercise
  • Sleeping with your head raised
  • Awareness of an underlying allergic factor which may be the cause of eye bags

If you have tried these methods and experienced no improvement, a consultation with our expert team is the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for eye bag removal surgery.

What should I expect after this procedure?

It is normal that you will experience some swelling and bruising, and this will subside naturally in the weeks after the procedure. The area of the incision may appear a little red but this will fade over the following months, and you will be left with a youthful and refreshed look.

What will eye bag removal cost?

The eye bag removal cost will depend on the amount of fat that will need to be removed as this determines the complexity of your procedure. In some cases, you may also wish to include other facial procedures as part of an overall refresh.

To understand the specific cost, you will be assessed during your consultation after which a customised, no-obligation quote will be provided. This is also a chance for you to ask questions and gain a better understanding of what will be involved in the procedure to ensure you are comfortable before moving forward.
