Eye Bag Removal

Eye bag surgery is sometimes required if bags form under the eyes. In this instance, under-eye bags can impact a person’s appearance and make an individual appear tired and older than his or her actual age.

Dr. Babak Azizzadeh is a world-renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who understands the importance of maintaining bright, beautiful eyes. He offers eye bag surgery and other facial rejuvenation treatments to help patients revitalize their facial appearance.

How Does Surgery to Remove Bags Under the Eyes Work?

Eye bag removal surgery is often performed under local or general anesthesia and requires up to three hours to complete. During eye bag removal, a surgeon removes excess fat and skin from under a patient’s eyes. Next, the surgeon sews the under-eye skin back together to help the patient rejuvenate his or her facial appearance.

Under-eye bag surgery involves a delicate, precise approach, as a surgeon performs the procedure around the eye muscles and eyeballs. Therefore, it is important for a patient to find a surgeon who possesses extensive eye bag surgery expertise so he or she can limit risk.

To date, Dr. Azizzadeh has performed many eye bag removal procedures, and he only recommends eye bag surgery if he believes it is safe and effective for a patient. In the event that Dr. Azizzadeh believes the potential risks of surgery to remove bags under the eyes exceed the potential benefits, Dr. Azizzadeh provides alternative treatment options.

  • Eyelid sagging
  • Wrinkling on the eyelids
  • Dark circles around the eyes>/li>
  • Asymmetrical lower eyelids
  • Large bags under the eyes

Does Eye Bag Surgery Deliver Instant Results?

The results of eye bag surgery usually become visible within a few weeks of treatment. Initially, a patient experiences dry eyes, bruising, swelling and other side effects after eye bag removal. These side effects typically subside within about 10 days of eye bag surgery.

Dr. Azizzadeh monitors a patient’s progress in the days and weeks after eye bag removal surgery. He recommends eye bag removal patients avoid strenuous exercise for at least one week after surgery. Also, Dr. Azizzadeh asks eye bag surgery patients to wear dark tinted sunglasses to protect the eyes for about one week following treatment.
