Tired-looking eyes caused by heavy eyelids or puffy, saggy under-eye bags are one of the most common complaints of patients contemplating cosmetic surgery.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can restore a more energetic and youthful appearance. You should look refreshed, as if you're just back from holiday.
Lower eyelid bags are caused by orbital fat prolapse through the weakened septum, which is the wall separating the eyelid from the orbit. Also, due to gravity, the cheek line drops over the years, accentuating the eyelid bags.
There are a few ways to treat lower eyelid bags. In mild cases, filler injection along the tear trough line could camouflage mild cases. For more prominent eyelid bags, surgery would be preferable.
The main purpose of the surgery is to reduce the prominent lid bags and camouflage the tear trough line. That could be accomplished by redistributing the fat with conservative excision of skin if needed. Lifting the eyelid could help maintain a youthful tight eyelid.
Expect cosmetic improvement of the lid bags by 80%, as the cosmetic outcome should be weighed against the functional outcome of the lower lid. The surgery should avoid causing exposure to the eye surface and dry eye.
Bruising could last up to 2 weeks and a small amount of bleeding is expected in the first day.
Double vision could happen after the surgery and may last for 2 weeks, as the surgery is taking place very close to the inferior oblique muscle, which is one of the muscles responsible for eye movements.
Scar could be obvious for 6 months if the surgery were performed from the skin side.
Cold compress could be used as soon as possible after surgery. The patient can use commercially available eye compress, or even a bag of frozen peas. Apply the cold compress for 10 minutes every 2 hours, during waking hours, for 2 days then x4 for 2 more days.
Compressive eye pads can be removed 2 days after the surgery and the steroid ointment can be applied over the lower lid, 3 times a day for 1 week.
Maxitrol drops, which are a combination of antibiotics and steroids, could be added when the surgery is taking place on the inside of the eyelid.
Silicone gel can be used to reduce the scar line.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience doing Lasik at this clinic. Their entire staff was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire process.
My surgeon was wonderful, made me feel entirely at ease before and during surgery. Highly recommended.
Laser eye surgery, now glasses free after 23 years! :)
I have always thought about laser, I have worn glasses for 23 years. I was very anxious, worried about the what ifs. I had an appointment with Dr Mani, he explained everything to me and I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It was so fast, Dr Mani did remind me to be patient and I think this is very important. I am now glasses free and hoping this will continue! After care was good, a week after surgery I was concerned and Dr Mani invited me down to check my eyes to be sure all was ok. Thank you

I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Mani. It was painless, smooth, and everything went well. The staff and Dr. Mani are all friendly and will answer all questions asked. Will recommend 100%! Thank you!
I had a great experience performing my laser eye surgery at Optimal Vision Clinic. All the staffs are very helpful, co-operative and supportive throughout the treatment process. On the first call, they explained the entire procedure in details and gave necessary instructions at every stage. My eye surgeon made me feel comfortable and relaxed before and during the procedure. Aftercare was done properly with a thorough check-up of my eyes. I would like to recommend this clinic to everyone!
Very happy and impressed with the highly professional care and service I’ve received at the Optimal Vision clinic. Dr Mani is so professional, and he explained everything about Laser surgery and answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and almost completely painless. My eyes have healed perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend this clinic.
My husband had been experiencing discomfort in his left eye since July and was seen by various doctors/consultants even at the Queen Mary’s hospital but no abnormalities were found.
This week Dr. Mani discovered the fault which happened to be Retina detachment with three tears.
Dr. Mani’s preciseness and his perfectionist attitude to attention to details, detected the source of the main issue and saved my husband’s eye. We feel utterly grateful and can not recommend him enough for his excellence.
