What Should I Expect From Eye Bag Surgery?

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty (eye bag surgery) is a cosmetic procedure that tightens the skin, removes or repositionals herniated fat tissue, and reduces excessive skin. Eye bag surgery can make the eyes look younger and more alert. It can reduce vision problems and help correct loose skin, wrinkles, and lower eyelid bags. The process of eye bag surgery will include an initial consultation to ensure you are a suitable candidate, preoperative preparation, blepharoplasty treatment, and recovery.

Is Eye Bag Surgery Painful?

Most people do not experience much pain from eye bag surgery, but discomfort is normal after the procedure. Eye bag surgery is performed with sedation and local anesthesia to prevent pain during the procedure. Swelling, bruising, bleeding, soreness, and temporary blurred vision are possible temporary side effects of eye bag surgery. The recovery lasts 7-14 days, and temporary blurred vision should subside within 24 hours.

How Long Do the Results of Eye Bag Surgery Last?

Eye bag surgery can significantly improve the appearance of the eyes. As the healing progresses, the results will become noticeable, and the eyes will look youthful and revitalized. The results can last for many years with proper recovery, adopting a good skincare routine, living a healthy lifestyle, and avoiding exposure to the sun. Depending on maintenance and care, the scope of the procedure, and genetics, the results of eye bag surgery can last anywhere from 5 years to a lifetime.
