What happens during Eye Bag Removal?

Eye Bag Removal surgery is most often done using IV sedation or light general anesthetic.

The incision is usually done using a tiny incision on the inside the lower eyelid to remove a tiny amount of fat. Tiny incisions under the lash line can be used to lift and tighten loose skin. Usually the surgeon uses dissolving sutures on the inside of the lid.

You can read more about Eye Bag Removal at the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.


Your surgeon will choose the best technique for you, but there are also some non-surgical options that can produce good, long-term, but not permanent results:
Cheek volumization raises cheeks that have drooped, creating a hollow under the eyes.
Tear trough filler and resurfacing helps plump up the hollow line under your eye that is the bottom edge of the “eye-bag”.
Radiofrequency, Lasers & Peels can tighten skin with almost no downtime.

How long will the procedure take to do?

Eye Bag Removal surgery takes one and three hours, depending on if there are any other procedures done during the surgical session. Most often it is done as outpatient, meaning you can go home same day.

What does the recovery process look like?

The amount of bruising depends on the method used to reduce your eye bags. There is usually less bruising if only fat is removed. You can get back to your regular activates within a few days, but you may still have some swelling, bruising and mild discomfort.

Avoid strenuous activity that raises your blood pressure during the first week or so – this will help your bruises subside. Avoid applying makeup over external incisions, as this might cause permanent coloring in the scar.
