Eyebag removal surgery is a commonly performed cosmetic procedure that is safe and effective provided it is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. The surgery can be done at a day surgery center with local anesthesia, which lasts about one hour.
Young individuals can have eye bag fat removal by laser cutting through a small incision inside the eyelid. There will not be any visible scar. Older individuals may need additional removal of saggy eyelid skin followed by fine suturing. Sutures are removed 7 days after surgery. The scar at the skin excision site is usually inconspicuous with time.
Risks of surgery includes bruising and swelling, local infection and Inflammation, and mild pain.
