A beautiful day starts when you get up and see your glowing face and beautiful eyes. No one wants to see puffy eyes staring back at them.
Dr Shubhra Goel, internationally renowned Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon, says that puffy eyes or eye bags are formed when fat or fluid accumulates around the eyes. For fluid collection, you can try home remedies to avoid puffy eyelids, like applying cucumber or cotton dipped in rose water over closed eyes. But if there are underlying structural changes, one has to get them treated by a specialist. Please note that puffy eyes are different from swollen eyes which are typically caused by allergies and infection.
Dr Goel is an expert with extensive experience in the surgical correction of puffy eyes. This surgery is known as Blepharoplasty.

Surgical correction of Puffy eyes
When the puffy eyes are mainly due to fat collection, the correction can be done only by a surgical procedure called Blepharoplasty.

The lower lid bags are removed by lower lid blepharoplasty.
The basic steps of both surgeries are-
The surgery takes typically 45 mins to 1 hour. It can be done under local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia for patients who are anxious. The patient generally does not feel any pain, but she may be aware of touch and pressure around the eyes. There are no major complications if done by experts, but in the end, one has to be ready for the realistic expectations.
