Korean Style Scarless Eyebag Removal

What are eye bags?
In science, formation of eyebag is explained as prolonged exposure to gravitational pull; as time goes by (aging), you’re exposed to a hefty amount of gravity that weighs down all earthly object, including skin.

However, the formation of eyebag can also be associated with other factors such as:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Genetics
  • Allergies
  • Stress
  • Degrading of collagen in skin

The main culprit of eyebags formation though, is fat deposit caused by the fats drooping as you age. Although these fats help to protect the eyes, they’re mostly the reason for eye under-eye puffiness.

How to get rid of eye bags?
Scarless Eyebag Removal is a simple procedure that involves removing fats from inside the eyelid.

ABOUT THE PROCEDURE

How are the fats being removed?
An access point is made through the inner lower eyelid, exposing the fat pads. Once this is done, our Korean-trained plastic surgeon will remove the fats. Due to the access point made, there are no visible external scars.

Does the process involve pain?
Local anesthesia will be applied to the eye region before the procedure, thus numbing the eye region. Your eyes will also be shut during the procedure, so there is totally no pain involved. If required, you may opt for sedation for the procedure.

How many sessions to get the desired result?
This is a one-time procedure.

What to expect for the procedure?
Before the procedure – A week before the procedure, patients are advised to avoid:

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Vitamin E
  • Omega 3 (Fish Oil)
  • Pain Killers (NSAIDs)

  • Average downtime is 2 to 3 days and results will show by the next few days
  • Minimal bruising and swelling with minimal discomfort, but painkillers will be provided
  • Skin will continue to tighten around the area for the following weeks
  • Final desired result will be visible in approximately 1.5 weeks time on average

Will the fat deposit again and cause eyebags reoccurrences?
The possibility of fats depositing in the same area would take about 10 years to reoccur, after the one-time eyebag removal procedure.
