What is Eyelid Surgery:
Eyelid Surgery is a method to remove fat and excess skin from the eye bags.

The cut is in the upper eyelid to fold and just below the eyelash edge at the lower lid. Excess skin is removed, tighten up the muscles and remove the excess fat. Stitches can be removed about 3-5 days after the operation. It is good to tape the scars for a while after eyelid surgery; your plastic surgeon will inform you about this and show you how to do.
You remain for around one hour in the clinic to reduce swelling and bleeding. At home, you must use a cold towel and compress on your eyes for a week. Taking a shower is ok after 2 days, but be sure not to use hot water or rub your eyes. Avoid the steam and sauna one month after the operation.
You will be blue below and over the eyelids for a while after eyelid surgery, bruises disappear after 2-3 weeks, it is fine to cover with a little makeup after 1 week from the surgery.
