Lower Eyelid Surgery


Surgery to fix lower eye bags and excess skin is more involved procedure than upper eyelid surgery and mostly requires a general anesthesia.

Anaesthetic - General or sedation

Length of stay - 5 nights 

Length of operation - 1 hours

Return to normal life - 1 week

Dr Mak sometimes combines this procedure with a lower eyelid fat transfer to ensure the most youthful and durable results. The structures of the lower eyelid can be approached by an incision below the lower eye lashes(subciliary) or inside the lower eye lid(conjunctival).

As the skin is so thin around the eye area, almost all patients will have some bruising around eyes , which can take 2-3 weeks to completely resolve however , this can generally be covered with make up after 1 week.

Before your treatments you might also need to:

Stop smoking. Smoking decreases blood flow in the skin and can slow the healing process. If you smoke , Dr Mak will recommend that you stop smoking before surgery and during recovery.

Avoid certain medications. You will likely need to avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, blood tinners and herbal supplements, which can increase bleeding.

As you begin your journey toward considering plastic surgery and other cosmetic enhancements , my goal as your plastic surgeon is to provide you the highest quality of care throughout the entire process.
