What is Eye Cheek Bag Removal (lower Blepharoplasty)?

Eye cheek Bag Removal (lower Blepharoplasty) is one of the most popular types of plastic surgery. Eye cheek Bag Removal (lower Blepharoplasty) is similar to non-surgical suture puffy lower eyelid surgery in which the operation is done without any external incisions on the patient.

Some people have bags under their eyes and are looking to make this kind of look better because it seems like they are always tired. One of the approved methods to solve this problem is lower eyelid surgery. There are several surgical methods that a surgeon can use for eye cheek bag removal. Still, the general approach usually includes extracting and removing fat, removing extra skin, and reinforcing the tendon of the eyelid. The natural fat bags that are part of the orbit around the eye may descend due to various reasons, and this causes swelling and puffiness under the eyes. Most of the time, the swelling of the fat bags that cause puffiness under the eyes is genetic.

Who is a Good Candidate?

You are a good candidate for Eye cheek Bag Removal (lower Blepharoplasty) if:

  • • You have extra skin and wrinkles on your lower eyelids.
  • • Have extra fat beneath the lower eyelid.
  • • There is puffiness under your eyes.
  • • You have extra eyelid skin in this area.
  • • Remember that extra skin can interfere with eyesight.
  • • You have lost the natural cleft in the upper eyelid area.
  • • You are looking like an old person.

The Procedure

Blepharoplasty is performed on patients on an outpatient basis and may take up to three hours. Below, we have described every stage of the surgery.

The first step in the surgery is anesthesia injection. Anesthesia is mostly local, but sometimes doctors order general anesthesia for the ease of the patient.  Depending on his or her diagnosis, the surgeon then cuts in the appropriate area. In Eye cheek Bag Removal (lower Blepharoplasty), the incision is made either just below the lash line or inside the lower eyelid.

Then the necessary changes are applied to the lower eyelids. These changes can be:

1-Removal of extra fat tissue in the lower eyelids

2-Removal of extra skin on the lower eyelids

3-Removing extra muscles

4-By cutting inside the lower eyelid, only the extra fat in the lower eyelid is removed.

Eventually, the incisions are closed with surgical sutures.


The recovery phase after surgery is convenient for most patients. For two to five days, prescribed painkillers are used.  Dryness and discomfort in your eye will get better after a week or two from the day of surgery. Swelling and bruising will lessen by the end of the first week, but it takes two to three weeks at least to heal completely, and you can go to your workplace after two weeks. Keep in mind that a full recovery may take several months.

Possible Complications

  • • Swelling and bruising around the eyes.
  • • Feeling a slight pain, dryness, and eye irritation.
  • • Blurred eyesight and sensitivity to light.
  • • Wounds, scars, infection, and bleeding from the incision
