VIP International Plastic Surgery Center in KOREA - Lower Blepharoplasty

The width to be removed is decided when the patient opens his/her eyes while sitting. The desired crease line or removal line is designed, and the amount of fat and the removal of orbicularis oculi muscle are decided, if necessary. The size of the crease is decided according to the facial feature and patient’s desire.
The process is as follows in the respective order: anesthesia, removal of skin, treatment of orbicularis oculi muscle, treatment of orbital fat and trauma suture.
Aging degree
There are various surgery methods, of which is decided according to the level of sagging skin, muscle, fat, turgor and exophthalmos.
In less severe cases, the removal of fat only is practiced through the conjunctiva. In case of droopy skin, the fat is returned to its normal anatomic compartment, and the skin is appropriately removed through skin incision.

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty

With aging, the soft tissues of the lower eyelid (skin, muscle, septum) loosen and shrink,
and the membrane enclosing fat weakens.
The periorbit changes and the fat pockets tend to protrude and bulge in the lower eyelid.
The semicircular part in the lower eyelid sinks and the skin droops.

Surgery Methods
Under the conscious sedation, it is performed through an incision just beneath the eyelashes without worries about scars.
The fat in the lower eyelid is spread out to the sunk semicircular part and sutured with absorbable sutures.
In case of too much fat, the fat may be partially removed.
The droopy skin is removed and sutured, resulting in a toned and younger lower eyelid.
Progress after surgery
The suture will be removed in five days after the surgery.
Unlike the upper blepharoplasty,
quick recovery enables the eyes to look natural in seven days after the surgery.
