Eye Bag Removal at venus medical in Ireland

A lower blepharoplasty or eye bag removal surgery is a cosmetic procedure that is done to improve the appearance of the lower part of the eyes. It can be combined with an upper blepharoplasty (eye lift) to rejuvenate the entire eye area. 

With age, the area surrounding the eyes starts to look tired and jaded due to the effects of gravity, loss of skin elasticity, and sun damage. Fine lines develop in the skin under the eyes. Excess fat accumulates in the under-eye area, giving rise to puffiness. This is commonly referred to as “eye bags.” 

We offer a lower blepharoplasty or eye bag removal surgery to men and women with aging eyes. The procedure can smoothen unattractive lines and wrinkles and get rid of fatty deposits and puffiness. The result is a dramatic improvement in your appearance with eyes that appear more alert, rested, and youthful. 

At Venus Medical, Dr Malcolm Paul  performs eye bag removal surgery under local anaesthesia. He makes an incision either  immediately below the lower lash line or from the inside of the eyelid. Through this incision, he removes or repositions fat, lifts and tightens under-eye tissues, and removes excess skin. Dr Paul can perform a lower and upper blepharoplasty together for more complete eye rejuvenation.

You can find out if you are a suitable candidate for a lower blepharoplasty (eye bag removal procedure) during a consultation with us at Venus Medical or by starting a journey and connecting with us through the MeTime app.
