Eye bag removal

Eye bag removal surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a procedure that is designed to remove bags under your eyes or excess skin form upper eyelids.

As we age, the muscles around the eyes relax and the skin surrounding them loses elasticity allowing eye bags to form. Aside from aging, the puffiness around your eyes can also be caused by your lifestyle, sleep routine and diet. So if you have already tried getting more sleep, exercising more and avoiding salt in your food or if makeup can’t seem to hide the eye bags anymore, we are happy to discuss with you eye bag removal or eye lift surgery as a possible solution.

The main purpose of the eye bag surgery is to get rid of the excess fat and skin to tighten up the eye area. Here at Transform, our team guides thousands of women and men each year through their cosmetic surgery. You can rest assured that you are in expert hands with our surgeons.

Eye bag removal & eye lift surgery FAQs

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we know that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around you. Following our consultation process we will provide you with a detailed pricing overview as well as information about our flexible credit options.

You can usually leave the Transform hospital the same day if you have either an upper or lower blepharoplasty. If you have both procedures, an overnight stay will probably be required.

As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks attached such as bruising and infection, but we’ll fully explain these to you during consultation so you can feel as confident and relaxed as possible before going ahead.

Cosmetic surgery to correct heavy, saggy or tired-looking eyelids is called upper blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat in the eyelids to provide tauter skin and help achieve a fresher looking eye area. Cosmetic surgery to correct bags under the eyes is called lower blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat in the area beneath the eyes, leaving skin tauter.

If you have your eye bag removal surgery under local anaesthetic, you will be able to leave hospital the same day. General anaesthetic will require an overnight stay at one of our hospitals. You may feel some discomfort to begin with as the areas will feel tight, however we will provide you with pain relief during your hospital stay, and also give advice on how to manage your recovery at home. You can expect some swelling and bruising in the first couple of weeks.

Losing skin elasticity and muscle tone around the eyes is common as we get older, so it is important to understand that the ageing process will not stop even after the eye bag removal or eye lift. During your medical consultation, your surgeon will discuss the results you can expect to achieve.

We suggest you to wait a few weeks until the area has fully healed before wearing eye makeup. Your surgeon and nurse will be able to advise you on how the area is healing during your aftercare appointments.

No, although we do recommend wearing dark sunglasses for the first week after blepharoplasty surgery.

More details on eye bag removal

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. While everyone’s jorurney is different, here’s a general step-by-step guide to what you can expect from an eye lift of eye bag surgery at Transform.

Eye bag removal step-by-step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering eye surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss every aspect of your eye surgery from the different procedures to the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. There are several eye alteration procedures, which tackle the upper eyelid, beneath the eyes, or both together. Your surgeon will discuss the right surgery method for you and the results you can realistically expect. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. There are three types of blepharoplasty that we perform: Upper blepharoplasty, which is performed along the crease line of the upper eyelid. Lower blepharoplasty, which is performed along the crease of the lower eyelash. Upper and lower blepharoplasty, when both the upper and lower procedures are performed together. During the procedure, your surgeon will make incisions into either the creases in your eyelids or just below your eyelashes. The excess fat and skin is removed to tighten up the area.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. You can usually leave the Transform hospital the same day if you have either an upper or lower blepharoplasty. If you have both procedures, an overnight stay will probably be required. Before leaving hospital, we’ll give you practical advice on how to look after the treated area and make a follow-up appointment to check your progress. We’ll also give you a 24/7 patient helpline number to call if you have any concerns.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. Your eyes may feel sore initially and you will probably want to take a few days off work whilst they begin to heal. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.
