Mild swelling or puffiness under the eyes are known as eye bags. These are a common complaint and, unfortunately, are just another side effect of the aging process. Having eye bags can have a negative impact on a person’s self-confidence. Luckily, it is easy to eliminate bags under the eyes with some simple surgery that we offer here at the Cadogan Clinic.
Ageing is one of the major causes of eye bags. With aging, the tissues around the eyes, including some of the muscles supporting the eyelids, weaken. Normal fat that helps to support the eyes moves into the lower eyelids, causing the lids to appear puffy. Fluid also may accumulate in the space below your eyes, making the area swell even further.
There are a number of other things that can cause eye bags, including sleep problems, allergies, drinking alcohol, smoking, eating too many salty foods, overexposure to the sun and not removing make-up properly before going to bed, which can all irritate the delicate area underneath the eye. In some cases, eye bags are hereditary.
Bags under the eyes do not normally impact on your vision or health. However some cases of under-eye bags may be as a result of infection or other health problems and require a visit to a doctor.
There are a number of things that men can do to minimise the appearance of under-eye bags. These measures include making key lifestyle changes, such as giving up smoking or reducing the amount of alcohol they consume. Having a good night’s sleep, maintaining a healthy diet and keeping hydrated can help too. However, these measures may only yield temporary results and not completely eliminate the problem of under-eye bags.
There are currently countless products on the market which claim to help calm and reduce the appearance of puffy areas under the eyes. However these creams and lotions can be very expensive and don’t always produce the promised results.

The best treatment to rid yourself of eye bags for good is eyelid surgery. Eye bag removal surgery is suitable for both men and women.
The eye bag removal surgery begins with a surgical incision underneath the eye. Fatty deposits are then surgically removed and excess skin cut away, before the incision points are sewn back together. Scars are hidden in the folds of the eye.
Here at the Cadogan Clinic, our qualified practitioners will carry out this safe, highly-effective surgical procedure in just 45 minutes to one hour. Patients will be able to leave the clinic on the same day to recover in their own home. Not only is this a more comfortable environment in which to convalesce, but it also reduces the risk of infection. Post-surgery nursing care is included in the price of treatment.
