Eye Bag Removal in Cebu City

The Ultimate Guide to Eye Bag Removal in Cebu City

Last fact-checked: 12 August 2020

Tired of looking tired all the time—even when you’ve got enough sleep? Maybe it’s time to get rid of your eye bags with surgery in Cebu City. 

Heading to the Philippines can save you potentially thousands on this straightforward removal procedure, and when you book through Medical Departures, you are guaranteed the best prices at quality-checked clinics.

Is Eye Bag Removal Surgery for Me?

Bags under the eyes give you an aging expression; they make you look sleepy, stressed and tired. They typically comprise a small deposit of fat that forms under drooping skin. While you can use topical products like creams, lotions and serums, these will not have much 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. However, the only real, long-term solution is eye bag removal surgery, called blepharoplasty. This surgery can remove the eye bags, and at the same time, you can also get your upper eyelids treated if they are also puffy.

With eye bag removal, you can turn back the years, with the end result giving you a younger, more refreshed appearance without noticeable scarring. 

Why Consider Eye Bag Removal in Cebu City?

Cebu City in the Philippines is a great holiday destination. It boasts blue waters, white sandy beaches and many islands that you can visit on a day trip. The locals are friendly and welcoming and you can have your pick of different cuisines or try the local delicacies. It’s also possible to find a wide range of accommodation options, from luxury hotels and resorts to budget rooms.

The city has a host of excellent medical facilities and hospitals with well-qualified, English-speaking doctors and support staff. Many have undertaken at least a portion of their training in Western countries or even studied and worked there, and many are likely to be members of international professional organizations, like the International Society of Plastic Surgery (ISAPS). With medical Departures on your side, you can find excellent medical care at affordable rates in Cebu City—plus have the chance to combine your cosmetic surgery with a fun holiday beforehand. 

Why Shouldn't I Just Book on My Own?

How Long Does Eye Bag Removal Surgery Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

The time taken for the surgery depends on whether you are only having the under-eye bags removed or the eyelids also tightened. In the case where both are performed simultaneously, 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 experience 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 until the eyes heal completely. You will not be able to wear contact lenses or eye makeup while the eyes heal as there can be a risk of infection. The typical recovery period from eye bag surgery is around 10 days.

What Is the Cost of Eye bag Removal Surgery?

In Australia, the cost of the surgery is quite high, ranging from AU$ 5,000 to AU$ 9,000 (depending on where you are and what kind of surgery you get done). In Cebu City, you can expect to pay between AU$ 1,300 to AU$ 2,600, or around 70% less.
