How To Get Rid of Eye Bags?

To determine how to treat bags underneath the eyes, you must determine the cause of the problem first, something we elaborate on later. However, if bags under the eyes are not of a temporary nature, then eye bag removal in Sydney will most likely be used to execute the treatment. Of course, we always recommend that patients speak to a licensed cosmetic surgeon before having any surgical procedures within the eye area.

What Causes Bags Under the Eyes at A Young Age?

A lack of sleep and allergies can cause temporary bags under the eyes of younger patients. However, a small percentage of these patients may experience bags under the eyes because of hereditary influences. If your parents or grandparents have struggled with this problem, and you experience eye bags from a young age, genetics could be a contributor.

    What Is Eye Bag Removal Surgery?

    Eye bag removal surgery is also known as blepharoplasty surgery. During a blepharoplasty, cosmetic surgery can treat the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. For the lower lids, which is targeted for bags underneath the eyes, the cosmetic surgeon will make an external incision in the natural crease of the eye or inside the lower lid, this then will be closed with sutures. Anaesthesia and sedation including general or local anaesthesia is used during this cosmetic procedure. The lower eyelid surgery method can vary from surgeon to surgeon, so it is important to ask about the incision and surgery procedures the surgeon will use for your treatment.

    Shortly after the lower blepharoplasty procedure, you may encounter some side effects and impairments from the surgery. Common side-effects that you may encounter after surgery are blurred vision, watery eyes, sensitivity to light, puffiness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

    There are some things you can do during your downtime to reduce some of the side effects after your surgery. For the swelling, you can use a cold pack and apply it to the affected area for ten minutes. Please note, you should only apply your cold pack once on the night of your surgery. Once 24 hours have passed, you can apply the cold packs up to five times a day.

    Patients should also avoid smoking during their recovery. Smoking is known to cause complications such as infection, but it can also reduce the speed of your recovery. Ideally, you want to stop smoking several weeks before your procedure, as smoking can cause complications during surgery too.

    Certain medications must be avoided during your recovery, as they can cause complications or have interactions with other post-operative medications you are taking. Medications that should be avoided include aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen. For pain relief, the cosmetic surgeon could recommend Tylenol. You may also be prescribed some antibiotics to prevent infection after your surgery. Should you have any questions about the use of medication post-surgery, please contact our clinic for additional information. Never take any medication if you are unsure about its interaction and its effect on your post-surgery recovery.

    Bags under the eyes are one of the most common types of ageing; this is alongside excess skin and loose skin on the upper eyelids and lower eyelids. When the skin ages, the skin will lose collagen. As a result, skin can lose its elasticity and lustre. As eyelid skin is quite thin, bags will be quite prominent.
