We offer Lower eye bag removal – blepharoplasty from our clinics in London and Glasgow
Lower eye bag removal is an operation designed to remove excess skin and or fat from the lower eyelids.
It can reduce the appearance of baggy or tired looking eyes.
What happens during the lower eye lift procedure?
Lower eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anaesthetic or under sedation, depending on what exactly is required. First an injection is carried out to make the area numb. Next, an incision is made just below the eyelash line. What happens next depends on your own anatomy, and varies from person to person. If your problem is simply excess skin, then this can be removed and the procedure can be carried out under simple local anaesthetic. Often however there is too much fat, or fat in the wrong places under the eye in which case it is necessary to remove or reposition the fat pads. If you require removal or repositioning of the fat pad, then the procedure will need to be carried out under sedation.
WHERE ARE THE SCARS?
The scars are hidden in the natural crease just below the eyelashes. Over time the scars should be virtually undetectable.
What are the potential risks and complications?
Like any operation, there is a risk of side effects and complications. There is a possibility of a collection of blood forming under the surface of the skin, which could necessitate further treatment to remove it. There is also a small risk of wounds becoming infected, especially in patients who smoke. All the potential risks of surgery will be discussed in detail at your consultation.
