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.

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.

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!
