Eye bags, puffy under eyes and saggy under-eye skin are one of the most common signs of face aging. While we cannot prevent aging, there are effective non-surgical and surgical treatments for improving the appearance of your under eye bags, wrinkles, dark eye circles and saggy skin.
In my practice, I’m asked these questions very often:
“Can I remove my eye bags without surgery?”
“Is eye bag removal painful and risky?”
“Are the results of eye bag removal treatment permanent?”

Non Surgical Eye Bag Removal Treatments in Singapore
If you have mild to moderate severity of eye bags and dark eye circles, you might want to consider non-surgical methods of eye bag removal treatments before attempting surgery.
At Sozo Aesthetic Clinic, we target your under eye bags and dark eye circles using specialised treatments. With one of the most comprehensive suite of eye rejuvenation treatments, you can be assured of holistic improvements and natural results.
AGNES is a Korean-made laser that uses radiofrequency (RF) delivered using insulated micro-needle to perform 2 powerful effects: melt excess eye bag fat and stimulate collagen to tighten under eye soft tissue.
For small eye bags, only 1 treatment session is required. For larger eye bags, 2-3 treatment sessions might be needed. Treatment intervals are spaced 1-2 months apart.
Saggy under eye skin and wrinkles also contribute to the appearance of eye bags.
Non-invasive treatments like Ultraformer 3 HIFU’s 2.0mm specialised Eye treatment and EndyMed RF specialised iFine treatment are used to stimulate collagen and tighten under eye skin.
Ultraformer HIFU Eye treatment is a medical-grade HIFU procedure that is performed every 12 months while EndyMed RF iFine treatment is performed every 1-3 months as a maintenance procedure.
The best method to replace lost volume is by using injected dermal fillers. Popular dermal fillers that are suitable for the under-eye include Restylane Defyne (Hyaluronic acid) and Rejuran I (PDRN) fillers. These fillers are once a year treatments.
Pico Laser and Fractional CO2 Lasers are the ideal treatments for mild fine lines at your under eyes. By resurfacing your skin, these lasers smoothen out your wrinkles.
At least 3 to 5 laser treatments are recommended at monthly intervals for best results.
Dynamic wrinkles (or movement lines) at the under eye as well as crow’s feet can be improved with Botulinum toxin injections.
Under eye botox treatment is both safe and effective for reducing fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by repeated muscle movement.

Non-surgical versus Surgical Eye Bag Removal Options and Reviews
Everyone is unique. Hence, under eye treatments should always be customised according to your needs.
You should decide on your treatment options based on the severity of your condition, budget, medical history and ability to tolerate downtime.
Surgical eye bag removal is a good option for patients with the following:
- Severe, large eye bags
- Severe saggy skin
- Able to take recovery time of at least 1 week
- Able to tolerate general anaesthesia
Non-surgical eye bag removal is ideal for the following patients:
- Small to medium-sized eye bags
- Mild to moderate amount of saggy skin and fine lines
- Unable to take downtime of more than 5 days
- Not keen for general anesthesia
- Looking for a cost-effective option
Non-surgical eye bag treatments are for prevention and maintenance of eye aging whereas surgery is for treatment of severe eye aging.
Both types of treatments are synergistic. In fact, non-surgical treatments are used Before and After surgery.
Before surgery: Non-surgical treatments slow down aging and delay the need for surgery.
After surgery: One still continues to age after surgery. Non-surgical treatments are used to enhance and preserve the results of surgery.
What is Eye Bag Removal Surgery?
Eye bag removal treatments or surgery are known as lower eyelid blepharoplasty.
There are 2 types of eye bag removal surgery: Transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty and transcutaneous lower blepharoplasty.
If you have excess under eye fat without saggy skin, you can consider transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty.
A transconjunctival approach to lower blepharoplasty is often known as the scarless blepharoplasty. This is because the incision is made in the conjunctiva (inner side of your under eye).
Another approach is to remove fat through a transcutaneous approach, which involves an external incision on the skin at your under eye.
The benefit of transcutaneous lower blepharoplasty is the ability to remove excess saggy skin in addition to removing fat.
However, the disadvantage of transcutaneous lower blepharoplasty is longer recovery time (1 to 2 weeks) and the possibility of a scar.
Not keen for long recovery times, the chance of scarring and anaesthesia risks?
Apart from surgery, there are several effective non-surgical methods to rejuvenate your under-eye.
How much does eye bag removal surgery cost in Singapore?
Eye bag removal surgery in Singapore can cost from $6000 to $15,000.
The price differences are dependent on the severity of your eye bag condition, the experience of the doctor and the complexity of treatment.
