Eye Bag Removal

eye bag removal

Eye bags can be a problem for people who are self-conscious about their looks. Eye bag removal in Dubai – also called blepharoplasty – can be of great help when it comes to removing eye bags. Eyelid surgery is a widely performed cosmetic procedure that helps remove eye bags located under the eyes. However, as the treatment is considered a cosmetic procedure, its cost will not be covered by medical insurance. Visit the eye bag removal cost page to know the approximate price of the treatment. 

During this procedure, sagging tissue and loose skin in the lower area of eyes is removed. An incision is made in the natural crease inside the lower eyelid. After the procedure is completed, the incision is closed with small stitches. The eye bag removal treatment is performed on an outpatient basis.

What causes eye bags?

As you grow older, your tissue structure and muscles supporting eyes begin to weaken and the skin starts sagging. Due to this sagging, fat begins to move towards the lower part of the eyelids. Fluids can also be accumulated between the space of your eyes that can make eyes fluffier and swollen.

What are the symptoms of eye bags?

There are several symptoms of eye bags including:

  • Mild swelling around the eyes
  • Dark circles occurring around the eyes
  • Loose and sagging skin around the eyes

When will you need a doctor?

There is no apparent danger related to eye bags and it doesn’t require any medical care. But if you don’t like how they look, you can go for a surgical or medical treatment. However, if swelling is severe, painful, and itchy, you must consider going to the doctor.

Your doctor will inspect all the possible causes that can cause swelling in the eyes or face. These causes may involve infection, allergy, or thyroid problems. The doctor will refer you to an eye specialist or a plastic surgery specialist for cosmetic surgery of the eye.

Medicines for Allergies

If the fluffiness of eyes is caused by an allergy, ask your doctor for a prescription to avoid the allergy. He/she will prescribe the medications needed for treating the allergy.

Therapies and Treatments for Eye Bag Removal

Various treatments are used to improve the appearance of eyes by removing the fluffiness from underneath. These treatments include chemical peels, fillers, and laser resurfacing. These options are perfect for improving the skin tone as well as tightening the skin and rejuvenating the eyelids. However, they are not as effective as Eyelid Surgery and Plexr treatment.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is an effective option for removing eye bags. It is an outpatient procedure; meaning that the patient won’t have to stay overnight in the hospital. During this procedure, the surgeon will remove extra fat through the incision made in the natural crease of upper eyelids. The incision can also be made inside the lower eyelid. After removing the extra fat, the doctor will rejoin the skin with the help of stitches.

Blepharoplasty can not only correct the undereye bags but also help repair:

  • lower droopy eyelids that can lead to the exposed white below the iris
  • extra skin on the lower eyelids
  • the baggy and fluffy eyelids
  • excess skin on the upper eyelids which could greatly affect your vision

Eyelid surgery can cause some side effects such as dried eyes, bruising, swelling, blurred vision, pain, and watery eyes. Some rare complications of this surgery include injury to eye muscle, bleeding, infection, and drooping of eyelids.

Who is best suited candidate for eyelid surgery?

There are a couple of factors that decide whether you are a candidate for eyelid surgery or not. These factors include the following:

  • Applying makeup to the eyes becomes difficult for you due to the shape of your eyes.
  • You look tired even when you are getting enough sleep.
  • You notice that there is extra skin around the area of your eyes.
  • Your eye bags are there throughout the day and don’t go away.

During your consultation with the doctor, a thorough examination of your eye condition will be conducted. The goal of this examination is to identify the features of your eyes based on your skin condition, age, gender, and ethnic background. By doing this, the proper approach to treating your eyes can be determined which will improve the shape of your eyelids to a greater extent.

Recovery Time

In some cases, swelling and bruising can be expected but they will diminish within a week or ten days after the procedure. However, most people will be able to return to work during the first week of recovery. You will also receive specific instructions regarding your recovery.

Plexr Treatment

Plexr is a non-surgical treatment for eye and it is the alternative of Blepharoplasty. Plexr uses plasma to stimulate skin tightening in the affected area and the procedure takes two to four weeks to be completed. The procedure can be used for eye bag removal in Dubai. There is no scaring involved in the procedure so no stitches are required after the procedure.

What to expect after surgery?

The treatment is performed through dots created by a Plexr device to covert the skin from solid to gas without damaging or bleeding the surrounding skin.

After the treatment is completed, the area of treatment will become red and swelled. At the site of treatment, there will be camouflage which will last for 7 days after the procedure and the treated area needs to be kept clean to avoid any infection. You also need to protect the affected area from direct sunlight for at least 30 days to avoid dryness. You will also be prescribed with creams and lotions which will help in the healing of your wounds.

Side Effects

Side effects of this procedure include scarring, infection, and pigmentation changes. Therefore, aftercare is important to avoid any unnecessary complications.

Benefits of the Treatment

  • Plexr is an effective treatment when it comes to treating excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids.
  • In addition to treating the eyelids, this procedure also affects the wrinkles and lines of the area around the eyes.
  • There is no cutting or stitching involved in the procedure so the recovery time of this procedure is also minimum.
  • The procedure can act as an alternative for people who are not suitable for surgical eye lift or are not ready for it.
