Eye Bag Removal Q & A

What is scarless eye bag removal surgery?

Eye bag removal is a scarless surgery available at ellevateMD. Dr. Jayaram performs eye bag removal carefully after evaluating your lower lids and the skin around them.

Before your surgery starts, Dr. Jayaram injects local anesthesia around the lower lids to numb the regions and covers your eyes with protective shields.

She uses a marker to mark the incision locations, then removes excess and skin with a strategically placed incision. She closes it with dissolvable sutures and may recommend fat grafting or injections to shape up the areas.

Your eyelid and eye bags frame your eyes, which are extremely delicate. Dr. Jayaram has a background in ophthalmology training and uses it to perform procedures around the eyes with great precision to avoid damaging them.

Exact strategies for eye bag removal vary, and she tells you in detail what she plans to do before the date of your procedure.

What is a liquid eye bag removal?

A liquid eye bag removal is an incisionless alternative to surgical eye bag removal at ellevateMD. It’s a great option for those who hesitate to undergo surgery or if you’re not a candidate for surgery because of a health problem.

During liquid eye bag removal, Dr. Jayaram minimizes dark circles, eye bags, and undereye wrinkles using an injectable filler like Restylane® or Juvéderm® Voluma™. She places the filler carefully in the tear trough area, building up to your desired results by using very small amounts of the filler.

What should I expect during recovery after eye bag removal?

The recovery period after a liquid eye bag removal is simple and takes just 1-2 days. You can alleviate swelling and discomfort with over-the-counter pain relief medications or by applying a cold compress.

Recovery after surgical eye bag removal is a bit more complex, but Dr. Jayaram makes sure you know what to expect and how to prepare. She may advise you to:

  • Apply a cold compress for the first 48 hours
  • Use prescribed ointments and eye drops
  • Limit strenuous activity for at least a week
  • Wear dark tinted sunglasses as you heal

If you have any questions or concerns about healing after your eye bag removal procedure, contact ellevateMD to express them and get helpful tips or answers.

Eye bag removal can make you look more awake, alert, and youthful. To find out if you’re a candidate for a surgical or liquid eye bag removal procedure, schedule an appointment by phone or online at ellevateMD today.
