[JW Plastic Surgery Clinic Korea] Revision Double Eyelids Surgery (re operation)

1. Why the most popular plastic surgery procedure is “Double Eyelids Surgery” aka “DES”

The most common procedure in Korea is blepharoplasty,or double eyelid surgery. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it's the most popular plastic surgery operation in the world, with 1.43 million people getting it done in 2014. It's so prevalent that a former Korean president had the operation while he was in office. Blepharoplasty is also controversial. Critics say that the operation makes patients look "less Asian," while proponents say that it's simply a matter of beauty — bigger eyes equals more attractiveness, essentially.
"Most Koreans don't have a double eyelid line, so in that case, sometimes they look sleepy and tired, the director of JW Plastic Surgery Clinic Korea sees 11,000 patients a year.

2. Types of Double Eyelids Surgery and which procedures suits me the most

 01. Non-incision method (Buried Suture)
Double eyelid surgery methods consist of incision method, non-incision method (buried suture), and partial incision.
The surgery method is selected by the type of your eyelid, thickness of eyelid skin, fat volume under the eye skin, and strength of eye opening muscle, and others, during the consultation with your doctor.

Non-incision method (Buried suture) is recommended for:

  • 01- Those who have thin eyelids Those who have a low volume of fat in the area of eyelids
  • 02- Those who want to have natural-looking eyes
  • 03- Those whose skin around their eyes is sufficiently elastic
  • 04- Those who doesn’t want the incision method

02. Incision method

Incision method cuts the double eyelid line to remove a certain amount of tissue, including skin, muscle, fat and connective tissues, then stitches the dermis layer under the line with fascia and tarsal plate, allowing the two tissues to adhere to one another by scar tissue. In this way, the double eyelid line is accurate and clear.
The incision method makes your double eyelid last long but swelling after the operation can last longer in comparison and it takes a longer time to make your double eyelid to appear naturally.
Incision method is applicable to:
  • 01. Those whose double eyelids are thick and have high fat volume
  • 02. Those who want to have a distinctive eye shape
  • 03. Those whose skin is sagging
  • 04. Those who want to have big eyes and long-lasting double eyelids

03. Partial Incision method

You can have both natural looking eyes through the non-incision method (buried suture) method and distinctive eye shapes through the incision method.
Partial incision has strengths of both non-incision method (buried suture) and incision method. The partial incision creates a 10mm crease in the middle of the fold by the incision method, and the creases of both sides are shaped by buried suture. After the shape of double eyelid fold is created then the fold is stitched. Through the partial incision method, not only the double eyelid fold can last longer than the ones made by other methods but also leaving no scar remains, fat around eyelid can be removed, and swelling is relieved quickly. However, this method can’t be applied to those who have sagging eyelids.

3. Is Double Eyelids Surgery easy?

People may think Double eyelids surgery is the most simple and easy surgery which it is not true!
Many of patients think it is simple procedure that incise the skin and suture nicely but the fact is that it really depends on surgeon’s technique and your condition. Plastic surgeon will have to check your thickness of skin, volume of fat, skin, remaining skin, etc., after checking all these options, then surgeon’s skill comes. Also main concerns / bone structure /point of beauty are different from all over the country, so it will be needed of your research to check surgeons who have more experienced in many races such as American-African, Westerner, and Asians.

4. Before and After pictures of surgery who needed to be done Revision Double Eyelids Surgery.

Muscle Correction (ptosis correction) with Double Eyelids Crease control

Above 3 patients had double eyelids surgery or Ptosis Correction from other clinics which it needed to be perform of revision double eyelids surgery, because their creases were too high due to adhesion or too high creases which it got controlled by "JW"

5. How to correct or solve previous double eyelids operation properly and Key Point for "revision double eyelids"

In order to create beautiful and natural-looking double eyelids, eye surgery should be conducted in consideration of the height and depth of double eyelids, the volume of eyelids, adhesion, and the strength of ocular muscles. If such components are not harmonized, the results of the operation may be unsatisfactory or the eye shape may look awkward on the patient’s face. In this case, a reoperation may be required.

01. Height

As each individual has different eye shapes and skin conditions, it is important to find the most natural and optimal height of double eyelids for you. Thick double eyelids make you look edgy from a long distance, but make you appear vacant from a close distance. On the contrary, thin double eyelids look natural from a long distance, but make you look fierce from a close distance. Therefore, it is important to find the most optimal height of double eyelids in order to prevent such gap.

02. Depth

The depth of double eyelids is determined by the direction of the front and rear parts of the eyelids and their length. Even though the height of double eyelids is the same, the eye shape changed depending on the depth of double eyelids. Thin double eyelids may easily disappear and deep double eyelids look unnatural.

 03. Strength
Accounting for 80% of revision eye surgery, the strength of ocular muscles is one of the most important elements. Most people’s faces are asymmetric and have a different strength of ocular muscles. An operation should be conducted, that considers the strength balance of the ocular muscles of both eyes.

 04. Adhesion
If too much skin tissue was removed during double eyelid surgery, it may cause excessive adhesion and hollows under the double eyelids. In this case, the eye shape is unnatural. In the opposite case, it may case triple folds.

05. Volume
If the eyelids are too thick, the upper eyelids may cover the double eyelids and the double eyelids may look extremely thin or not be visible at all. In the opposite case, the double eyelids may be overly exposed and look awkward and unnatural, which may require a re-operation.

[JW Plastic Surgery Clinic Korea] Flat nose tip correction (Flat nose tip plasty)

What is Flat nose tip correction (Flat nose tip plasty)?

1.     What is “Ideal tip of nose”?

With regard to an ideal tip of nose, it is recommended for the line to be naturally connected from the glabellar area to the end of nose but in a somewhat round shape on frontal view. In this case, nostrils should not show in excess and alar rims at both sides need to be in gentle sea gull shape. In lateral view, it is ideal that alar rims should not be retracted or hanging so that it properly matches the nasal columella without the length exposed in 2~4mm. Proper nasolabial angle is 90~95 degree. And it is recommended that the height of nose occupies 50~60% of the nasal length. At the base, it is ideal to keep not too broad a nasal base, gentle triangular nose, not excessively exaggerated infratip lobule, and nostrils in dear drop shape. It is not desirable to emphasize the projection of nasal tip resulting in an upturned nose or the nasal tip is being projected too much not properly matching the length or size of nose, or the whole face.

Most of women’s longing for beautiful breasts

What are standards for beautiful breasts?

Ideal average standards are:
JW Plastic Surgery Clinic Korea surgeons perform breast augmentation with most suitable for body type considering the different physical characteristics of each individually.

Golden Ratio For Beautiful Breast

The most ideal breast is when the length of A,B,C is equilateral triangle (18cm ~ 22cm)
Nipple: Areola : Breast Diameter Ratio = 1:3:9

JW’s Beautiful breasts creating methods:

Breast implants VS Fat injection (Harvest Jet 2) 


Combination breast augmentation

  • Most likely there are 2 types of operation methods for breast augmentation, which it is Breast implants augmentation and fat injection to your breast (Harvest Jet 2), but “JW Plastic Surgery Clinic” made “Combination Breast Augmentation” which it only collected strengths from Breast implant augmentation and fat injection.
  • Combination breast augmentation is insert breast implants, and then we inject the harvested fat at the same time to fulfill the satisfaction of feeling and sizes.
  • If the patient decides to have breast augmentation by using of breast implants, we use HD endoscope to make spaces in breasts to insert breast implants.
  • “JW Plastic Surgery Clinic” uses “Harvest Jet 2” machine for harvesting fat tissue which it will be injected to patient’s breast to raise the rate of persistency and survival rates of fat tissues. Also PRP or Stem cell could be added.

Advantage of JW’s Breast Augmentation

1)      Asepsis -> Prevent contracture in advance ( Keller Funnel / 3M Ioban)

“The reason why JW’s Keller Funnel 2 is a must!”

1. It is aseptic disposable product without any possibility of contamination.
2. Reduces tissue damage and bleeding through soft and easy insertion.
3. Minimal pain and low possibility of side effects.
4. The implant does not rotate during the insertion.
5. It is possible to insert any areas such as armpit, areola or under the breast incision, and shortens surgical time.

 Using of Full HD Endoscope for Breast Augmentation ->

JW Plastic Surgery Clinic has performed endoscopic breast augmentation since it first came out. Furthermore, we have played a pioneering role in dissemination of the endoscopic method through numerous academic activities in Korea.

Safe Anesthesia: Possession of Dantrolen

Types of Implants:

Smooth implants / Micro textured implants / Textured implants

Smooth Type:

This breast implant is most commonly used and the surface is soft and smooth. It is suitable for people with thin skin and less breast tissue. The breast implant is able to move around the breast freely after the surgery and does not stick with surrounding tissue so that the shape is natural. To prevent hardening after breast enlargement surgery, massaging the breast implant is recommended for more satisfying results.

Textured Teardrop Type:

The tear drop shaped breast implant has properties similar to the textured type, and allows the breasts and nipples to be slightly raised to accentuate the breast shape and line. Teardrop shaped breast implants may change the shape of the breasts after a “boob job” before it settles so only texture is used.

Bellagel have acquired approval from Europe’s CE and Korea’s MFDS with a product that comes in three different shapes (Round, Anatomical, Conical) and 2 different textures (Smooth, Textured)

GelCohesive Gel95% of the gel used in Bellagelis a cohesive gel registered under the US FDA.Cohesive gel has a high level of cohesion and does not slide down

Listen: Thoughts on plastic surgery in South Korea

This podcast is about plastic surgery in South Korea. South Korean Hanbi Kim shares her experience with plastic surgery and why she chose to change her nose. Doctor Chul Hwan Seul and employee Jay Han from JW Plastic Surgery Clinic talk about patients’ motivation for getting plastic surgery done, and offer their thoughts on the plastic surgery market.

    Hanbi Kim, which English name is Robin, got plastic surgery when she was 20-years old. Privat photo.

During my stay in Seoul, South Korea, I realized that beauty is an important factor in the South Korean society. The term “Korean beauty” is becoming well known, Korean beauty products are gaining popularity in other parts of the world, and South Korea has in the recent years become famous for their many plastic surgery clinics.

This podcast is about plastic surgery in South Korea. South Korean Hanbi Kim, whose English name is Robin, met me in a rented study room in Gangnam to talk about her experience and thoughts on plastic surgery. For Robin, getting a “nose job” three years ago, when she was 20 years old, wasn’t a serious decision. Robin explains “I was generally fine with my face (…), but if you could fix one thing, I said it would be the tip of my nose, because it was kind of pointing downward instead of upward”. Even though she encourages others to stay happy with their natural look, for Robin beauty is an important factor related to getting a job. A constellation, Robin says, that the South Korean society needs to work on; accepting people for who they are. After ending the interview with Robin, we continued our conversation over dinner. Here, Robin and her friend explained that talking about plastic surgery among friends, is like talking about purses: giving each other advice on where to get plastic surgery and exchanging experiences. Also Robin explains that getting plastic surgery is a quite normal graduation gift among her circle of friends.

In this podcast, Doctor Chul Hwan Seul and employee Jay Han from JW Plastic Surgery Clinic in Seoul explain why clients are getting plastic surgery done and how the plastic surgery market is increasing. According to Doctor Chul Hwan Seul, plastic surgery clients explain that they wish to look more beautiful, look more like celebrities, or their husbands wish to have a more beautiful wife. He continues explaining that it is mostly women who get plastic surgery, but this does not mean it is not popular for men as well. Furthermore Doctor Chul Hwan Seul explains that the clinic has also seen an increase in the number of foreigners coming to South Korea to have plastic surgery.

The expansion of plastic surgery in South Korea has also been discussed among scholars. According to the text “The Beauty Complex and the Cosmetic Surgery Industry” (2004) by Professor Woo Keong Ja, the expansion of plastic surgery in South Korea is a consequence of patriarchal ideology and consumptive capitalism. In the text she says “In order to achieve higher and more profitable positions in the labour market, women have no choices but to adjust their bodies to the standard concept of femininity. This is where cosmetic surgery enters the picture” ( p. 58). Professor Woo Keong Ja states that patriarchal ideology influences womens lives in such a way that their values lie in their physical appearance. Furthermore, she points out that womens cosmetic surgery issue is caused by society, plastic surgery being an readily available solution to honor expectations to womens appearance created by patriarchal ideals.

It can be discussed, whether beauty has become a capital in the Korean society. In the podcast Robin explains that in order to get a job beauty is imperative. Furthermore through Doctor Chul Hwan Seuls knowledge on plastic surgery clients, we hear about cases where women get plastic surgery because of their spouses’ desire for their wife to be more attractive. Both explanations are consistent with “The Beauty Complex and the Cosmetic Surgery Industry”, coming to the conclusion that plastic surgery is a consequence of beauty as a social construction.
