Last fact-checked: 25 August 2020

Eye bag removal in Pattaya is a fairly straightforward surgery that will help you look younger and more fresh-faced—at a fraction of the price you would pay at home.

Discover quality-checked clinics in this popular Thai coastal city and book your flexible appointment through Medical Departures.

Why Eye Bag Removal?

After eye bag surgery, your face will look younger and your eyes appear more open and alert. Cosmetic surgery that gets rid of puffy eyes is also called blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery.

Smoking, stress, not getting enough sleep, aging and even a poor diet contribute to eye bags. Saggy and droopy skin around the eyes gives you a tired appearance and you may have to face comments regarding not getting enough sleep. Eye bag removal gives an immediate lift to your face and makes you look younger. You can have both upper and lower eyelids done at the same time or just get under-eye bags removed. It can also help smooth out some wrinkles around the eyes and, in some cases, even improve vision.

Why Should I Consider Blepharoplasty in Pattaya?

Pattaya is a hugely popular tourist destination overlooking the Gulf of Thailand with its beaches and parks, shopping and nightlife, water sports and floating markets. With many avenues of entertainment, you can enjoy a holiday in Pattaya while undergoing eye bag removal surgery there. You'll find it to be an inexpensive tourist destination with reputable, modern cosmetic surgery clinics deploying the latest equipment and medical techniques.

Pattaya is accessible from many destinations in Australia, where you can fly on most major airlines to Bangkok. From there, it's just an hour and a half by road. You will discover numerous state-of-the-art medical clinics, where you can obtain quality medical care at affordable rates.

Should You Book Surgery on Your Own?

It can be risky booking surgery based on information that you cannot verify yourself. While an Internet search will give you many seemingly great options for eye bag removal surgery, you can never be sure about how many or which of them are on the level and not just hyped to attract clients.

If you do your research through Medical Departures, you are assured that we have done the homework for you and have carried out an independent and unbiased check of the facilities, qualifications of the doctors, quality and services of the facility, and the surgeries carried out there.

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

The eye bag removal procedure will take between one and two hours. You may require tightening of both upper and lower lids or elect to only remove the bags under your eyes. Incisions are made so that they are virtually invisible and these, too, will fade over time. Excess skin and fat are removed and the skin tightened and sutured. On the upper eyelid, the incisions are made in the natural eye crease and on the lower eyelid just under the lashes.

Notes on recovery: 

  • There will be bruising and swelling, which will subside in around 10 days.
  • You will be advised to wear dark glasses and restrict certain activities.
  • You should be able to go back to work in a week or so.
  • You will not be able to wear eye makeup or contact lenses while your eyes are healing.

What Is the Cost of Eye Bag Removal Surgery?

If the cost of eye bag removal surgery is holding you back, it's worth considering heading abroad to a top medical tourism destination like Thailand to save thousands. 

The cost of eye bag removal surgery depends on whether you are getting upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both done at the same time. For complete blepharoplasty, the cost can range from AUD 5,000 to AUD 9,000 whereas in Pattaya the cost can be as low as AUD 1,575—less than a quarter of what you might pay in Australia.
