Lower Eyelid Surgery

Similar Names: Eye bag surgery, scarless lower eyelid surgery, lower blepharoplasty, transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty, tear trough correction surgery, 下眼睑手术, 眼袋手术.

Eye bag surgery, also known as lower blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to address puffiness and sagging skin under the eyes. The tear trough, the hollow area between the lower eyelid and cheek, can also be a concern because it often gives a tired or aged appearance. 

During the procedure, excess fat and skin are removed or repositioned, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. The tear trough is commonly treated at the same time, using fat transfer or injectable fillers, to give a youth contour to the eyelid and cheeks.

Surgeries often done together with lower blepharoplasty surgery for more eyelid enhancement:


  • Stop blood thinning medication as directed by your doctor.
  • Avoid supplements such as fish oils, vitamin E, Ginseng, glucosamine before surgery.
  • Stop smoking to maximise your healing ability.

After lower eyelid surgery, your eyelids will feel bruised but it will not be intensely painful. For some patients with dry eyes, their eyes may feel uncomfortable and you will be given eye drops to soothe the eyes. 

Abstain from wearing contact lens for 5 to 7 days after surgery because it may exacerbate dry eye symptoms.

  • We advise to start wearing cosmetics 1 week after eyelid surgery. For scarless lower eyelid surgery, you may apply makeup gently after a day. 
  • Instead of eye cream or eye gel, apply the ointment provided by the clinic to moisturise the wounds and the eyelids.
  • Cool compress for 3 days 
  • Walk around and avoid lying down to make use of gravity to reduce swelling 
  • Low salt diet 
  • Stop blood thinners and certain supplements as directed by the doctor before  surgery. 
  • Warm compress from day 4 of surgery. 
  • Some patients are prone to obvious bruising. Speak to our doctors on starting bruise lasers to help clear your bruises more promptly. 

The cost will depend on the technique used, the condition of your eyelids and the severity of the problem, such as in revision surgery. Please consult our plastic surgeon for a more accurate cost advice.

  • For transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty, eyebag reduction is done through the inner lining of the eyelids (conjunctiva), leaving no scar. The limitation is excess skin cannot be removed. 
  • For patients with excess lower eyelid skin, subciliary technique, where the incision / cut is at the lower eyelash margin, and skin can be removed, this technique may be more suitable.
