Eye Bag Removal in Phuket Province

The Ultimate Guide to Eye Bag Removal in Phuket Province

Last fact-checked: 30 August 2020

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 strength and elasticity. The first signs of aging often appear in the area around the eyes. Fat displacement under the eyelids can cause them to bulge, creating what we commonly refer to as eye bags. 

Booking eye bag removal surgery in Phuket through Medical Departures can give your eyes a fresh, youthful look for less—not to mention the chance to enjoy a relaxing holiday to this exotic Thai island. 

Why Consider Eye Bag Removal in Phuket?

An increasing number of people are choosing Phuket as a preferred destination for a variety of cosmetic procedures—and with good reason. Surgical procedures here and throughout the rest of Thailand are much more affordable than at home and are performed by expert surgeons with all the necessary experience. Heading to a destination like Phuket also provides 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’ll have the opportunity to rest and recover in a beautiful tropical island environment.

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. Eye bag removal can also assist in treating bags beneath the eyes and excess fatty deposits that cause the eyelids to appear puffy.

Booking Treatment with Medical Departures

As the leading online medical travel booking agency, Medical Departures understands your desire to book in with a quality clinic while getting value for money. 

We list only those medical facilities we have thoroughly and personally vetted; as part of our background check process, we take into consideration authentic patient interviews, check professional memberships and confirm qualifications. We also check all doctors and clinics for legal and criminal records and conduct on-site visits to the clinics so that we can gain a sense of how things are done. 

Get started now by taking a look at these two leading facilities in Phuket that offer eye bag removal for international patients. 

How Long Does Eye Bag Removal Take and What Can I Expect from the Recovery Process?

In traditional eye bag removal surgery, the surgeon will make an incision beneath the lash line. Excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed and then the incision is closed using 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 30 minutes to an hour—although do plan to be at the clinic or hospital for longer while you recover.

Your post-surgery recovery:

  • During the first evening following the procedure, patients generally need to rest quietly while keeping their head elevated. You can usually be up and around 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, typically disappearing within seven to ten days. 

  • Patients should expect their vision to remain somewhat blurry for a few days following the procedure. Excess dryness, teary eyes and sensitivity to sunlight are all common side-effects following eye bag removal. 

  • Your doctor may prescribe eye drops to relieve itching or burning. 

  • Non-dissolvable stitches usually need to be removed within three to five days following the procedure.

What Is the Cost of Eye Bag Removal in Phuket Compared to the U.S. and Canada?

On average, double eyelid surgery in Phuket costs around AUD $3,800 (EURO €2,600; UK £2,000; US $3,000; CAN $3,800). 

This can be compared to Australia where it’s around AUD $8,000 (EURO €5,200; UK £4,100; US $6,000; CAN $7,700). [Please note: these prices are approximate estimates based on international data, calculated at the time of writing.]
