[JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea] About Anti-aging: Upper Blepharoplasty from Best Plastic Surgery Center Korea

Upper Blepharoplasty
 
What is Upper Blepharoplasty?
 
In general, most people merely consider that saggy eyelids are a natural symptom of aging.
However, the root causes of the aging of eyelids vary and include droopiness of all other parts above the eyelids such as scalp, forehead, eyebrows, and eyelids. Thus, eyelid lift correction is not simply about cutting the saggy parts of the eyelids but correcting the overall balance of eyelids.
Eyesight can become deteriorated by the droopy eyelids, and more wrinkles around eyebrows and the forehead can be created as a patient tries to open his/her eyes wide. As droopy eyelids could cover the iris, his/her sight may also become interrupted. The saggy eyelids cover double eyelid lines as well. Upper blepharoptosis wrinkle surgery reduces saggy eyelids and it is divided into upper blepharoplasty and endoscopic brow lift. Upper blepharoptosis wrinkle surgery consists of blepharoplasty.
 
  • It removes the saggy skin of eyelids an creates new double eyelid lines.
  • There are other methods of removal of the sagging skins without creating double eyelid folds and proportional resection of skin around eyebrows.
 
Blepharoplasty is the most general form of eye lift surgery. It removes the saggy skin of the eyelid and creates new double eyelid lines.

Upper Blepharoplasty is effective for the following cases
 
  • Non-incisional method is not applicable and no saggy eyebrows and no blepharoptosis
  • Appropriate thickness of eyelid skin and existence of double eyelid crease
  • Appropriate distance between eyebrows and eyelashes, and light crow's feet and light wrinkles on the bridge of the nose
  • Severe saggy skin around the outer corner of eyes and the existence of double eyelid crease
  • Comparably bigger eyes, which have no blepharoptosis
Procedure of Upper Blepharoplasty

Step 01-
Diagnose overall eye condition of a patient prior to surgery and design the best shape of eyes

Step 02-
Incise the double eyelid lines then remove eyelid fat and saggy skin

Step 03-
Pull the droopy muscle tightly up and stitch

Step 04-
Complete a youthful eye shape with reduced wrinkles

Subbrow Excision
Some people who are middle-aged or are seniors, who have thick eyelid skin, tend to be unsatisfied with their double eyelid line surgery.
The droopy eyelids can fester the outer edge of eyelids and can cause inflammation around these areas. Moreover, as droopy eyelids can interrupt his/her sight, patients try to open their eyes wider. This habit results in creating wrinkles on his/her forehead.
Sub-brow excision can build a refreshed eye shape by pulling the saggy eyebrows upward

Nose surgery with rib cartilage in Korea

For people who want a nose job, their own septal cartilage and ear cartilage can be used to help them get the nose they want. These two cartilages are the most commonly used materials for the augmentation of the nose. What if these are not enough for the augmentation? How about rib cartilage in our chest?

1. What is rhinoplasty with rib cartilage?


Rib cartilage is bigger than septal cartilage or ear cartilage. It is able to provide enough material to modify your nose any way you would like, whether it is lengthening your nose or increasing the height you’ll notice a drastic change.

Sometimes the body will reject foreign materials, however, this doesn’t occur in the case of using rib cartilage. As well, the absorption rate of rib cartilage is much lower than other cartilages so it is able to maintain the shape of the …
