The Ultimate Guide to Eye Bag Removal in Cebu City

Thought about a surgical holiday to get rid of your eye bags? In Cebu City, Philippines, Medical Departures has brought together quality-checked surgeons and clinics in this popular destination so you can make the most of your pre and post op time.

Bags under the eyes give you an ageing expression; they make you look sleepy, stressed and tired. Eye bag removal can give you a face that looks younger and refreshed. Eye bags typically comprise some fat that forms under drooping skin. They may look puffy and even sag a great deal. While you can use topical products like creams, lotions and serums, these will not have an impact on deep-seated eye bags.

At times, cool compresses may have a temporary effect and reduce the appearance of eye bags. Professional use of makeup including concealers may also give your face a fresher look. But the only real and long term solution is eye bag removal surgery, called blepharoplasty. This surgery can remove the eye bags, and and at the same time you can also get your upper eyelids treated if they are also puffy.

Why can’t you book on your own?

Cosmetic surgery, like other surgery, carries with it some risks. If the surgeon is not skilled, he can do your eye bag removal surgery such that your lower eyelid is pulled and tight. This can cause you more problems and lead to revision surgeries that may or not be effective. When you book on your own, you will not be certain that the doctors you go to are well qualified and experienced.

If you book through Medical Departures, we do the groundwork for you. We investigate the qualifications and background of the doctors, make sure that they well trained and certified and even accredited as required. We check out the ambience of the clinics and hospitals and ensure that they are using modern equipment and technology. This is so that you don’t get shortchanged in any way.

How long does eye bag removal surgery take and what is the recovery period?

The time taken for the surgery depends on whether you are only getting the under eye bags removed or the eyelids also tightened. In case both are done, the incisions are made in the natural crease of the eyelid and in the lash-line of the lower ones, so scars will be virtually invisible. The surgery can take between one and two hours. In the case of simple eye bag removal, the fat under the eyes will also be removed and the skin tightened so the bags disappear.

You will have some bruising and swelling and need to wear dark glasses for protection and to hide the bruising. You may have some activity restrictions for some time till the eyes heal completely. You will not be able to wear contact lenses or eye makeup while the eyes heal as there can be risk of infection. The healing should take around ten days.
