Know About The Procedure Of Eye Bag Removal Surgery

Sleep deprivation, long working hours, or just stay awake to watch your favorite show party can all lead to the eye bags. One cause of eye bags is still to be aging.

That's right-you can blame work and stress, but also that you're just getting older. Fortunately, Blepharoplasty of lower & upper eyelid surgery in San Francisco is the surgical removal of eye bags to get rid of one of the major signs of aging.

Eye bag removal surgery or blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes excess, loose skin and fatty tissue from the upper and/or lower eyelid to get rid of bags under the eyes, and in some cases, to improve hooded eyelids. 

This procedure comes in three types: lower blepharoplasty, upper blepharoplasty, and a combination of both top and bottom. No removal of skin required for lower blepharoplasty performed through the conjunctiva, which is only a bag of fat removed. 

This procedure usually takes about two hours and requires general anesthesia. This could be the case today, but overnight is also recommended. After surgery, stitches strips will be applied to support the eyelid. These strips will be removed after three to five days.

There are some common risks when it comes to this surgery such as infection, blurred vision. But it usually goes away over a span of two to three weeks.

Hope this helps to provide some answers and feedback. Good Luck!
