Eye bag surgery or eye bag removal refers to surgery of the lower eyelid which can be troubled by excess fat and skin, known as fat herniation. Affecting women of all ages, eye bags can be hereditary, as well as occurring as part of the ageing process. They can also often be the result of the weakness of the septum and muscle and not excess fat! The ideal procedure is to carry out surgery where the fat is repositioned, the septum tightened, the eye muscle plication (tightened) and some excess skin removed.

Septal reset surgery for a perfect balance
There is an accepted technique where removal of fat is an option, although at the Wentworth Clinic we discourage this procedure as it may result in sunken eyes in 5-10 years time.
As part of our blepharoplasty procedures, we perform a surgery known as ‘septal reset’ in which excess fats are not removed but repositioned to achieve a long-lasting, transforming outcome. Many of our patients combine eyelid surgery and eye bag removal to achieve the most pleasing results.
As with 90% of our cosmetic surgery procedures, eye bag removal can be performed under local anaesthetic with oral sedation, though in some cases your surgeon will deem general anaesthetic as the most appropriate option.
