Eye Bag Removal in Kuala Lumpur

The Ultimate Guide to Eye Bag Removal in Kuala Lumpur

Last fact-checked: 27 July 2020

Bags under our eyes make us look old, tired and moody—even on good days when we feel refreshed! If you’re finding that expensive serums and slices of cucumber aren’t making much difference, surgery could be an option. 

With Eye Bag Removal in Kuala Lumpur, you’ll save a good amount on the price, get the chance to explore the wonderful Malaysian capital and, when booking through medical Departures, won’t have to compromise on quality. In fact, many of our clients report that the standards of care are actually better than what they’re used to at home. 

Is Eye Bag Removal for Me?

This straightforward surgical procedure effectively removes bags that have formed under the eyes. The result? A younger, more refreshed-looking you. No longer will you have to waste time applying extensive make-up and concealers to hide those eye bags—which is becoming increasingly commonplace among young men.

Medically known as blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery, this surgery tightens baggy or droopy eyelids, stretched skin and under-eye bags that may bulge or have fat deposits. 

Eye bag removal will give your eyes a more open look, alleviating the physical signs of stress or fatigue. That said, many people are genetically predisposed to eye bags, which is why even the most zen, well-rested people can still look tired. As a minimally invasive procedure, friends, family and colleagues won’t be able to see any signs of surgery after around 10 days (only that you look so much better).

Why Choose to Undergo Eye Bag Removal in Kuala Lumpur?

When booking through a trusted site like Medical Departures, undergoing cosmetic procedures in this bustling city can be just as easy as it is in Sydney, London or New York—and a whole lot more affordable. 

Major airlines fly from Australia to KL (as it is popularly known) and you can book a cheap flight when it is available, cutting your costs even further.

Kuala Lumpur is a great holiday destination full of tourist attractions including the iconic Petronas Towers, the KL Tower, nature parks and gardens, museums and historic places. You can eat your fill of delicious cuisines from all over the world, including local Malay, Chinese and Indian delicacies at fine dining restaurants, food courts and hawker stalls. 

Why Should I Book with Medical Departures? 

All surgery comes with some degree of risk, and so it’s important that you mitigate the chances of anything going wrong by finding an experienced surgeon at a quality-checked facility in Kuala Lumpur. This is especially true when it comes to surgery to the face (the skin around the eyes is very delicate and needs special care).

While you can search online and randomly book through a website, how confident can you really be with regard to the truthfulness and accuracy of the content? Can you be sure that the clinic is recognized with any international bodies such as the Joint Commission International

When you book through Medical Departures, we eliminate the apprehensions and fears you may have. That is because we carry out thorough investigations of the hospitals and clinics we list. We make sure that the doctors are experienced and qualified, the staff well-trained, the equipment modern and the amenities up to standard. We also conduct post-surgery patient interviews to make sure that everything is above board.

How Long Does the Surgery Take and What Is the Downtime?

The time taken for the surgery will depend on whether you are getting eye bag removal surgery on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Regardless, the time is relatively quick, taking between one and two hours. 

It is performed under local anesthesia and you may be given some light sedation. Fortunately, the surgical evidence of eye bag removal is very difficult to detect as incisions are made in the natural creases of the eyes, and these do fade with time. You cannot avoid bruising and swelling, though, and you will have to wear dark glasses to hide them and protect your eyes. These marks will take around ten days to fade.

Depending on the state of your eyes, your doctor may recommend either a chemical peel or laser resurfacing at the same time to get better results. 

You may want to combine eye bag removal surgery with a facelift or eyebrow lift. The time taken for the surgery will increase proportionately, but the recovery time will be about the same.
