While eye bags can be reduced to a certain degree with non-surgical methods, changes to the skin causing puffiness cannot be reversed.

If you are wondering why your eyes are puffy and how to get rid of eye bags, you are not alone. You can expect your undereye area to become baggy and depressed as a result of ageing.

The good news is that puffy eyes do not impact your vision. However, they can affect your appearance and reduce your confidence. That is why people are keen to know how to get rid of eye bags. But first, let’s look at what causes them and how to reduce and prevent them.


Causes Of Eye Bags


causes of eyes bags


The most common reason for puffiness or baggy eyes is ageing. According to Dr Adnan, one of the most revered plastic surgeon in Dubai, “Ageing makes the skin loose and lax, and collagen production decreases, due to which fat surrounding the eyes bulges out and creates the bubble-like appearance.”

Bagginess in the undereye area may also be caused by:

  • CVS or computer vision syndrome
  • Lack of sleep 
  • Lack of hydration 
  • Genetics 
  • Excess salt in the diet
  • Medical conditions such as thyroid issues, dermatitis, renal disease, etc.

How To Remove Eye Bags?


If your eye bags have formed due to stress, then taking a break from the screen can relax eye muscles and reduce eye bags. You can apply rosewater dabbed on a cotton pad to the eyes for a soothing effect.

In addition, be sure to take ample rest, stay hydrated and limit the amount of salt in your diet. If you are a smoker, cut down or stop smoking, and take a look at your lifestyle to see where you can make further improvements.

If you use screens in your day-to-day life, you may be more susceptible to puffy eyes. But remember, as mentioned earlier, while droopy skin around the eyes may make you appear older and affect your confidence, it will not affect your vision.

How To Get Rid Of Eye Bags Permanently?


Even if you follow a healthy diet, get enough sleep, and take all other steps to minimise eye bags, the loose skin can only be repaired by surgery. Blepharoplasty (blef-ur-rho-plas-tee) or eye lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that repairs droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle, or fat.

Here is what Dr Adnan has to say about blepharoplasty:



How Is it Done?


The procedure takes around two hours with the steps as follows:

  • Anaesthesia-The surgery proceeds under local anaesthesia or IV sedation. 
  • Surgery- The surgeon makes an incision along the natural skin folds, and cuts and trims loose muscle, bulging fat, or saggy skin.
  • Incision closure- Once the surgeon is done, the skin is sutured with dissolvable stitches.

The patient is given instructions on how to care for their eye area after surgery.


Who Can Choose Blepharoplasty?


You are a good candidate for blepharoplasty if you have:

  • Droopy eyelids
  • Loose eye skin causing eye bags
  • Crows’ feet around the eyes
  • Puffy eyes with a darker undereye area

For surgery to go ahead, you must be healthy, a non-smoker (or willing to quit for a period of time) and have no significant health issues that may interfere with surgery.

After blepharoplasty, you can expect visible results soon afterwards; however, you must have realistic expectations about the surgery.


Things To Consider Before Having Eye Lift Surgery


Eyelift surgery is a very common cosmetic procedure in Dubai to enhance overall facial looks. However, you must consider the following points about the surgery.

  • You should be in good health.
  • Your eyes will be bandaged after surgery, so you will have to adapt to this for a period of time.
  • You must take your medication on time.
  • The skin around your eyes will be bruised and swollen, and you may also experience itchy and dry skin.

How Successful Is Blepharoplasty Procedure?


Blepharoplasty is a highly successful carried out in Dubai. It has minimum downtime, and you can expect to see visible results almost instantly after the procedure.

During the consultation, Dr Adnan will discuss your issues, examine your undereye area, request eye scans if necessary, and then draft a surgical plan tailored to your needs.

On the day of surgery, he will expertly carry out the planned procedure, making incisions from natural skin folds around the eyes. As an expert in natural-looking plastic surgery, he believes in doing the minimum to get optimal results, to which his patients will testify.
