How long does the eye bag removal procedure take, and what will happen?

The time it takes to complete the eye bag removal surgery depends on whether you have just the upper or lower lids done, or both – so the time could vary between 1 and 3 hours.

Local anesthetic or light sedation is usually given, rather than general anesthesia. The incisions to remove the excess skin and fat from your eyelids are made in inconspicuous areas. For surgery to the lower lids the incisions is made inside the lower lid, so no scar is detectable. On the upper lids the incision is typically made in one of the eye’s natural creases.

Once the loose skin and excess fat is removed the remaining skin is pulled tight and stitched carefully in place.

What is the recovery time after Eye Bag Removal?

As you would expect after surgery, you will experience some swelling and bruising, which will not begin to subside for a few days. You will be given instructions but generally told to avoid lifting, bending and doing anything that will raise blood pressure for a few weeks. You should be able to engage in your everyday routines after a week and many people feel well enough to go back to work then, even if swelling and bruising is still evident.
