Eye Bag Removal

Eye Bag Removal at Woodthorpe Hospital

What is Blepharoplasty?

An eye bag removal (blepharoplasty procedure) can help men and women of all ages to overcome the inevitable signs of skin ageing above, below and around the eyes. 

This procedure is typically performed to produce a fresher and more youthful eye appearance. The ultimate aim of the surgery is to remove or relocate fat and smooth the loose, lined, crepey skin that can be associated with sun damage and the ageing process. A successful blepharoplasty procedure will create a brighter, fresher, more youthful eye area and improve the overall facial appearance without leaving obvious signs that surgery has taken place. 

An upper blepharoplasty procedure can help those who have loose or hanging skin on the upper lid area and a full and heavy creased appearance below the eye brow margin. 

A lower blepharoplasty procedure is typically performed to improve a tired eye appearance caused by localised areas of lined skin, excess fat and puffiness beneath the eye area itself – these problem areas are commonly referred to as ‘eye-bags’. 

Early signs of ageing and sun damage tend to affect the fragile skin around the eye margin long before other facial areas become affected. It is consequently quite common for patients to request this procedure prior to or as a complementary procedure to other facial surgery, such as a facelift or laser resurfacing procedure in later years.
