BLEPHAROPLASTY AND UNDER EYE BAG REMOVAL IN IBIZA
TRANSFORM YOUR LOOK WITH OUR BLEPHAROPLASTY AND UNDER EYE BAG REMOVAL SERVICE
Blepharoplasty and under eye bag removal surgery is the order of the day for people seeking to remove fatty bags accumulated in the upper or lower eyelids, as they can grow considerably in some cases.
It is a popular operation in our cosmetic surgery clinic in Ibiza. If you think you are an ideal candidate to undergo it, the following guide tells you all about the procedure.
WHAT IS BLEPHAROPLASTY AND BLEPHAROPLASTY UNDER EYE BAG REMOVAL?
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery. It can be a cosmetic or reconstructive treatment, which aims to improve the appearance of sagging skin when it is weak and droops or accumulates on the upper or lower eyelid.
Surgery is usually performed to eliminate that annoying feeling of eyelids hanging over the eyes or bags, often adding years to our lives. But apart from that, from a health point of view, it can even reduce the field of vision and cause headaches. So, both cases are interesting.
The ideal is to study the patient’s situation and propose one option or another depending on the patient’s condition. If it is performed, it is an outpatient procedure. It does not require hospitalisation, so the patient returns home within the day. The duration of the intervention varies from case to case.
Who is the ideal candidate to undergo this surgery?
Some people seek this procedure to improve their appearance and rejuvenate their look, taking years off their faces. But it can also be a visually impaired person.
In any case, people in good health and have good psychological stability are good candidates for this surgery. Generally, a health examination, blood tests, and electrocardiogram may be performed before surgery to confirm the patient’s suitability.
It is usually suitable for people between 35 and 60 years of age. This is the most frequent profile of people who undergo this surgery. Primarily, these people want to remove excess bags, skin and dark circles under the eyes that occur as the years go by and can be very unsightly.
TYPES OF BLEPHAROPLASTY
To curb this problem, the patient can undergo these interventions:
- Upper blepharoplasty: this technique is performed under local anaesthesia. Its objective is to eliminate drooping eyelids, excess skin and/or bags in the upper eyelid, mainly removing the feeling of a sad or tired look.
- Lower blepharoplasty: this surgery is performed on the lower eyelid when excessive skin and fat accumulate in the lower bags and dark circles under the eyes.
- Complete blepharoplasty: in this case, the surgery is performed on both upper and lower eyelids.
Although the procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia or local anaesthesia plus sedation, general anaesthesia may be necessary. In many cases, it depends on the surgeon’s preference and the patient’s pathology; any of these types may be considered.
WILL I HAVE ANY SCARS?
The procedure leaves a small scar or two. They may appear pink after the operation but become almost invisible with time. The risk of poor healing is low, but care must be carried out correctly.
Postoperative care is straightforward for the patient. Resting for a few days and applying cold to the area is important to reduce inflammation.
Doing any sport or exercise in the first two weeks is not advisable. An ointment, anti-inflammatory medication and a preventive antibiotic may sometimes be prescribed.
Although the postoperative period is usually painless, following the surgeons’ instructions is essential.
Side effects such as excessive tearing, a little blurred vision or hypersensitivity to light may appear in the first few weeks, but they will gradually disappear.
WHEN WILL THE RESULTS BE VISIBLE?
The results of this surgery are practically immediate, as they can be seen within the first two weeks. Therefore, after the postoperative phase, significant progress can be noted, as the patient will see that their problems have disappeared and can now lead an everyday life.

CO2 LASER BLEPHAROPLASTY AT EIVIESTETIC
At Eiviestetic, we also perform blepharoplasty with a CO2 laser.
CO2 laser blepharoplasty offers several advantages over the traditional technique. For example, we achieve greater precision in the cut, with less damage to adjacent tissues. This generates very little inflammation of all structures, and the surgery is much cleaner than the traditional method.
The laser also allows us to coagulate all the vessels we find during the intervention.
It benefits the patient because the postoperative period will be shorter and more comfortable. You will have less postoperative swelling, less oedema, and less risk of haematoma. They will be able to return to everyday life very quickly.
In the same CO2 laser procedure, we can perform a complementary resurfacing treatment, eliminate other skin defects, such as blemishes and fine wrinkles, and even tighten the tissues. In this way, we enhance the patient’s aesthetic results even more.
