Under Eye Surgery – The Pros and Cons

      Comments Off on Under Eye Surgery – The Pros and Cons

Ageing normally takes a toll on people’s appearance. This especially affects the skin around your eyes, which can start becoming loose, wrinkled and begin to sag. These eye bags give a dull and tiresome appearance to your eye appearance and make you look older than really are. Eye bag surgery is used as a solution to getting rid of eye bags. What are the pros and cons of this procedure?


Make You Look Less Tired

People with eye bags complain of appearing stressed when they are actually not or always looking like they haven’t slept a wink for a long time. Since under eye surgery removes excess fat and skin, you will appear less tired: it takes away that dullness from the face and makes it look radiant.

Restores the Youthfulness of Your Face

Unfortunately, the ageing process occurs in everyone. Some people can experience undesired signs of ageing in their twenties, while others can notice these signs many years later. Nevertheless, it’s a natural, unavoidable occurrence.

Your eyes are among the first and visible parts to show ageing because the collagen that’s in the delicate skin that surrounds your eyes starts becoming weak earlier on plus more severely than the other parts of your body. One of the main aims of under eye surgery is removing fatty tissues and excess skin from under your eye, which makes them look baggy, tired and aged. After undergoing this procedure, most people are happy with how refreshed and young they look.

Increase Self-confidence and Overall Self-esteem

The eyes are known to be a central aesthetic feature; hence they are the first thing that people will notice about you. Therefore, feeling content with the appearance of your eyes is the key to positive self-esteem and self-confidence. As such, the improvements resulting from under eye surgery will help you feel more confident and happier in your own skin.

Erase Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are the wrinkles around the eyes, which are caused by many factors, including stress, smoking, squinting and sun exposure. Under eye surgery minimises crow’s feet appearance, postpone their development, and also prevent them from getting deeper.


This procedure come with a few side effects.

– If performed with fillers, you can get an infection
– Swelling and bleeding
– Pain
– Scarring (if there was an incision made)
– It can take you between 10 and 14 days to recover before you go back to work.
– The effectiveness of the procedure depends upon how you will take care of your skin after the procedure.

Swelling, pain and scarring can be combated using cold compresses. You can also take ointment medication (prescribed by your doctor) in case you are experiencing bleeding. Keep your head elevated when sleeping and not moving your facial muscles by a great extent. If the bags are infected, you should contact your doctor. If you have an infection, you might have to go back to the hospital.
