How Does Eye Bag Surgery Work?

The global cosmetic surgery and services market is already worth more than GBP 15.35 billion. But experts say that it'll grow bigger by 2019, topping over GBP 20 billion by then.

A huge contributor to this growth is the United Kingdom. In 2017 alone, cosmetic surgeons operated on over 28,000 patients. There's also the 31% of UK adults interested in getting cosmetic surgery in the future.

These numbers prove that many, if not all, care about appearance. Especially when it comes to the face since it's the first thing other people see.

It's for this reason eye bag surgery has become more popular. After all, how our eyes look (beyond colour), can give us a more youthful-attractiveness.

That's right. Science says eye shape and the surrounding area can make us look younger (or older!).

But what is eye bag removal and how can it help? Keep reading to learn all about it!

Why Bags Under the Eyes Develop in the First Place

You've heard it before: The eyes are the windows to the soul.

It's not only a "saying" though. It's not only a "saying" though. How the eyes and the area around it look also give off signs of our physical and mental health. That's why other people can tell if you're happy, worried, anxious, or sleep-deprived by looking at your eyes.

As such, if you're sporting bags under your eyes, most people would think right away that you haven't had a good sleep. In fact, you may even look like a sad person to others!

But lack of sleep isn't the only cause of under-eye bags. It's also a sign of ageing, especially since the skin around the eyes is the thinnest facial area.

Keep in mind that as one age (as early as the 20s for others), the skin loses moisture and elasticity. There's also the fact that the skin around the eyes sits on top of blood vessels and purple muscle. Since this is the thinnest area on your face, moisture and elasticity loss makes it look even darker.

This doesn't mean you should already give in to the effects of time. Minimally-invasive eye bags surgery can breathe back life into your tired, dull-looking eyes.

What Eye Bag Surgery is All About

So, how does this under eye bags surgery work?

First things first: You have both surgical and non-surgical options to get rid of eye bags.

If you're willing to go under the knife, then consider lower blepharoplasty. This procedure removes hooding (excess skin), fat (the bags themselves), or both. Removing these unwanted excesses help make the skin tauter.

Lower blepharoplasty works on excess fat below the skin under the eyes. If you have loose skin in this area, then your cosmetic surgeon may also recommend this procedure. It involves creating an incision under your lower lash line to remove the excess fat or skin.

Once you've recovered, you'll see a pair of rejuvenated, more youthful-looking eyes.

Keep in mind though that recovery often takes about two weeks. Mild discomfort is also common within the first few days. Bruising may take up to two weeks to disappear.

How about the Non-Surgical Approach?

If the thought of going under the knife doesn't appeal to you, then dermal fillers may be the answer. There's no surgery involved, only simple injections to remove eye bags.

Dermal fillers take the form of gels consisting of hyaluronic acid. It's a natural substance (meaning it's present in the body) that helps add or restore volume to soft tissues.

If your eye bags result from cheek deflation, dermal fillers can put some plump back in your cheeks. The injectables can restore the smoothness of the area below your eyes and cheeks. This smoother under-eye transition to the cheeks then helps remove those bags.

Dermal fillers may also help with eye bags caused by excess fat. This still depends on your facial anatomy though. Your chosen doctor will determine this through complete facial assessment and mapping.

The Faster, Safer Way to Freeing Your Face from Eye Bags

Because dermal fillers don't need you to undergo surgery, then recovery is also a breeze. In fact, you can even go back to work the same day you had your treatment. It's up to you if you want to rest overnight.

Depending on how sensitive your skin is, you may see some redness or feel a bit of tenderness. This may occur within the first week after the treatment, but it's uncommon.

In any case, there's little to no downtime involved with dermal fillers. To top it all off, you'll notice the effects much sooner than if you went through surgery.

You can even get dermal fillers for many of the other problem areas of your face. Whether you have smile lines or marionette lines, fillers can smooth these out for you. They can also help reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines.

Profhilo: Another Gamechanger in the World of Eye Bag Removal

The Profhilo treatment, like dermal fillers, also uses hyaluronic acid. It helps rid you of your eye bags by plumping and firming up the skin. What's different is Profhilo's formulation.

Look at it this way: Dermal fillers help to volumise while Profhilo to hydrate. Instead of enhancing specific facial areas, Profhilo rejuvenates the entire face.

Aside from the face, this skincare treatment also works wonders on any other area with thin or loose skin. Suffering from droopiness in your neck or sagging skin in your arms or knees? Then Profhilo is one treatment option you should explore.

Don't Let Eye Bags Give You an Older, Forever-Tired Look

Keep in mind that your eyes can either make you look trustworthy or give you a depressed vibe. Since you don't want the latter, then it's time you address those bags under your eyes.

Again, eye bag surgery isn't the only way to get rid of these unwanted skin problems. It's best you take as much time as you need also to explore your non-surgical options.
