Eye bag removal and eyelid reshaping

Eye bag removal and eyelid reshaping

Even the most beautiful of faces loses some expression if the eyes no longer sparkle. They are the windows to our soul. Sparkling eyes are a major part of our appeal. The problem is that between the ages of 30 and 60, the skin and tissues lose their elasticity – particularly the thin skin around the eyes.
The eyelids become hooded and eye bags form.

Too much sun, stress or a genetic disposition can encourage the ageing process. Sagging lids lead to a tired expression. The whole facial appearance seems sad and aged.

Eyelids and eye bags can be corrected at reasonable expense. The aim of this procedure is to remove excess skin and lift the lids. The eye area is rejuvenated by about 10 years. The functionality of restricted vision can also be restored with the help of eyelid reshaping.

Overview of the procedure

Pre-operative check-up

The pre-operative check-up complies with the European standard requirements within the framework of preparation for an anaesthetic.

Local anaesthetic: basic haemogram incl. blood clotting factor
General anaesthetic: comprehensive haemogram plus ECG.

Your local doctor or an internal specialist can perform the pre-operative check-up. The clinical report must not be older than 2 weeks.

The pre-operative check-up can be completely performed in the Czech Republic.


Before surgery, the operating doctor will mark the areas of excess skin.
If performing eye bag removal, the incision will be made below the lower lash line. If performing eyelid reshaping, the incision will be made in the lid’s natural skin fold. Sometimes the incisions will be extended if crow’s feet are also to be removed.

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty
In some cases, it is possible to remove eye bags without a visible skin incision. This procedure is internal and can only be performed to remove eye bags without any excess skin.

After surgery, the incisions are stitched up intracutaneously to achieve the best results.
