UNDER EYE LID SURGERY

Who can have Under Eye Lid Surgery?

Anybody who is unhappy with the appearance of their under eyes can have lower eye lid surgery.

Age & genetic factors are linked to the decline of the supporting fatty pillows under the eye sockets, giving the appearance of "bags" under the eyes. This may cause the person to look & feel older than they actually are.

The removal of under eye bags will also eliminate the permanent "tired" look.

The duration of the surgery is approximately 60-90 minutes and can be performed under local or general anaesthetic.
