Is lower eyelid surgery painful?

When discussing lower eyelid surgery for lower eyelid bags with my Houston eyelid surgery patients, one of the more common questions is if lower eyelid surgery is painful. Most patients do not describe significant pain from lower eyelid surgery. Patients usually describe that the eyes feel itchy and may occasionally burn a little. Pain is not a common complaint after lower eyelid surgery. If there is significant pain after lower eyelid surgery, especially with one eye more than another, this could be a sign of bleeding that may be occurring under the skin. This is an urgent issue that needs attending and your surgeon should be notified.
