If you are tired of looking run down, eye bag removal in Phuket could be an ideal solution. Also known as blepharoplasty, eye bag removal surgery involves the removal of drooping skin, helping to tighten skin along the eyelids.
As we grow older, our skin tends to lose its muscle strength and elasticity. The first signs of aging often occur in the skin surrounding the eyes. Fat displacement under the eyelids can cause them to bulge, creating what we commonly refer to as eye bags. Eye bag removal surgery can give your eyes a fresh, youthful look.
An increasing number of people are choosing Phuket as a preferred destination for a variety of procedures, including eye bag removal and with very good reason. Surgical procedures performed abroad in destinations such as Phuket not only are much less costly than the same procedure performed at home, but also provide the opportunity to recover in an exotic location.
Recognized as a tropical paradise with world renowned beaches, Phuket offers a wonderful climate and warm Thai hospitality. By choosing Phuket for eye bag removal, you gain the opportunity to rest and recover in a beautiful tropical island environment. Rather than having to worry about your day-to-day responsibilities at home, you can instead kick back and relax, while relying on the hotel staff to attend to your every need.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, eye bag removal can help to treat sagging or loose skin that disturbs the contour of the eyelid and which may impair vision. Eyebag removal can also assist in treating bags beneath the eyes and excess fatty deposits that cause the eyelids to appear puffy.

In traditional eye bag removal surgery, the surgeon makes an incision beneath the lash line. Excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed. To close the incision, the surgeon will use fine sutures.
Your surgeon may recommend a procedure known as transconjunctival blepharoplasty, if there is a pocket of fat located under your lower eyelids, but it is not necessary to remove any loose skin. An incision will be made inside the lower eyelid, which will not leave a visible scar. This procedure is typically recommended for younger patients who have fatty lower eyelids. Traditional eye bag removal takes approximately a half an hour to an hour.
During the first evening following the procedure, patients generally need to rest quietly while keeping their head elevated. You can usually be up almost immediately following the procedure, but it is important to limit your activities. Patients may find it helpful to apply cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising.
Swelling and discoloration will gradually begin to subside around the eyes, although this does vary from one person to another, typically disappearing within seven to ten days. Patients should expect their vision to remain somewhat blurry for a few days following the procedure. You may also notice that your eyes are sensitive -temporarily - to sunlight. Excess dryness or teary eyes is also common following eye bag removal. Your doctor may prescribe eye drops to relieve itching or burning. Permanent stitches usually need to be removed within three to five days following the procedure.
