If you are looking for an eye bag surgeon in London, contact the Elena Prousskaia Clinic.

Elena Prousskaia, one of the UK’s best-known aesthetic surgeons, offers eye bag surgery in London, a solution to the signs of aging under the eyes.

Changes in the skin around the eyes are often among the first signs of aging. The skin becomes slacker and develops a tendency to puffiness and sagging. The muscles around the eyes lose their firmness, allowing fat pads to bulge in the under-eye area, causing pouches or bags.

The operation to remove eye bags in London is called a blepharoplasty. In the hands of skilled surgeons like Elena and her team, it is a straightforward and effective procedure that will revive your eye area. Contact the clinic to find out more about plastic surgery in London.

Are there any non-surgical solutions to under-eye bags?

Under-eye puffiness can be the result of allergic reactions, perhaps an allergy to something in your environment or to prescription medication. Have a word with your doctor to rule out either of these resolvable causes. High salt diets can cause fluid retention making eye bags worse while sleeping in an elevated position can help to drain fluid from the face. Smoking and lack of sleep will also impact your eye area. If maintaining a healthy lifestyle doesn’t improve your eye bags, contact our London Clinic to chat about how a blepharoplasty could help you.

What happens during a blepharoplasty in London?

During a blepharoplasty, the surgeon will make a fine cut along the lower lid, either in the under-eye crease or inside the lower lid. The pouching under the eye is caused by slack skin and muscles. The surgeon will trim and remove the excess skin and muscle. This procedure will make your under-eye area much smoother. A similar procedure can be performed on the upper lid to improve the look of hooded eyes.

What is the downtime after surgery to remove eye bags?

The surgery will be carried out at the day clinic in London, and you will be able to go home afterward. All surgeries, particularly to the sensitive eye area, carry the risk of post-operative swelling, which may last up to ten days. Sleeping in an elevated position will encourage fluid to drain from the area, as will cold compresses. It would be better to wear your glasses rather than contact lenses for the first week after surgery as lenses may irritate the eyes. Patients rarely experience significant pain issues, but painkillers can be used if required. After 12 weeks, any swelling or bruising will have resolved, and you will have a fresh new look.

Eye bag surgery cost in London

An essential part of your journey toward a rejuvenated eye area is your first consultation with your surgeon. Your surgeon will discuss your problem and how it can be improved by surgery. This first meeting will cost between £200 to £250 depending on location. The total cost of the surgery and your post-operative consultations starts at £4620.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Risks Of Eyelid Surgery?

Any surgical procedure comes with some risks. Like any operation, blepharoplasty poses a risk of bleeding, infection, scarring and an adverse reaction to anaesthesia. It’s also possible to have an allergic reaction to the surgical tape or other materials used during or after the procedure. Elena will provide you with further information about the risks and provide you with a detailed consent form during your consultations. This will help you to minimise the risks.

What Care Is Taken Before And After Eyelid Surgery?

Following your initial consultation It is normal to have a second consultation, for you to ask any further questions, once you have had time to consider the different surgical options. After the decision is made, we will carefully prepare for your surgery. During this consultation, you will have a fully informed consent form instructing what to do before and after surgery for the best outcome. The Elena Prousskaia Clinic prides itself on the quality of its aftercare so we will make absolutely sure you know what to expect, and how much rest is needed. We will give you specific instructions that may include how to care for your eyes following surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to follow-up with Elena.

Am I A Good Candidate For Blepharoplasty?

Most of our blepharoplasty patients are over 35 years old, however ultimately age does not matter. Elena will look at the condition of your skin regardless of age. Eyelid surgery is typically for those patients who are seeking to reduce droopy eyelids, or “bags” under the eyes, for a younger, more open-eyed look. However, the surgery has also a functional purpose in that some people’s eyelids are sagging to such a degree that it actually interferes with their vision. In these cases, the procedure can make a huge improvement to their daily life.

What Is The Recovery From Blepharoplasty Surgery?

In this first week there will be some puffiness or swelling around the eyes. This is completely normal and part of the post op healing process, and should subside within 7-10 days. The incisions around your eyes may be pink and quite visible, and your eyelids may feel numb for several days. Your eyes may also be watery, dry, and sensitive to light. You may also experience some tenderness and bruising around the eyes resulting in a “black eyed” appearance. Some recommended tips for reducing the swelling around your eyes include: • Sleep elevated on two pillows.
• Use cold compresses – especially in first few days.
• Avoid wearing contacts for this first week but glasses are okay.
• Drink plenty of water and fluids, but avoid alcohol.
• Eat a light healthy food that is low in salt.
• Rest, rest, and more rest. You may also experience some double vision or blurriness a few days post op. Wear dark sunglasses during this period particularly if you’re going outdoors.

Can I have surgery if I wear Glasses?

If you wear contact lenses, you will not be able to wear these in the first days after surgery. As glasses make no direct contact with the eyes, they are safe to use. A patient’s focus will be on resting in those early days of recovery, which means avoiding strenuous physical activities as well as activities that may result in eyestrain. However if you go outdoors, be sure to wear sunglasses. This will hide your eyes from view after surgery has been performed and will also protect your eyelids from direct sun exposure.

How Long Does Surgery Take?

Generally speaking this surgery takes around 2.5 hours, although this varies depending on the nature of the procedure.

Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.

SM – Abdominoplasty & Liposuction

I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.

EG – Removal & Replacement of Implants

I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery  has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!

JB – Breast Reduction

Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital. The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands. The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.

LMS – implant Removal & Replacement

Had surgery with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!
