Our expert says:
If you have bags under your eye, it can most definitely be removed by plastic surgery. This is a relatively small procedure, compared to many other plastic surgery procedures, and many patients have it done on a Friday, returning to work on the Monday. It can also be done under conscious sedation (twilight anaesthetic), rather than general anaesthetic, which makes the procedure more affordable. Unfortunately I cannot give you an idea of costs. You can visit the website of the Plastic Surgery Society of South Africa (www.plasticsurgeons.co.za) for a list of names of plastic surgeons in your area, otherwise ask a doctor for a referral.
