[JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea] Part1.) What you should think before having secondary blepharoplasty (revision eyelid surgery): 1. Volume problem

Part 1.

Today I would like to talk about people having "secondary blepharoplasty" (revision eyelid surgery)

As you know it is very important to find right plastic surgery clinic and right surgeon who can solve your problems it caused by previous operation you had.

Before having "secondary blepharoplasty" you should know what you have to solve the problems of your eyes.

There are 5 major factors to make natural double fold (double eyelids). These are
  • Height of eyelids
  • Volume of eyelids
  • Depth of eyelids
  • Adhesion of eyelids
  • Levator function (Power of your eyelid muscle)
Most of the "Secondary Blepharoplasty" cases are related to inadequacy of these factors.

And I'm going to talk about "volume problems" today.

1. Volume problems:

The volume problems are roughly divided two categories. Fulness and sunken. Also most of the problems are caused by sunken eyelid for "secondary blepharoplasty".
  • Fullness- Excess of covering
  • Sunken- Lack of covering
Sunken eyelid is related with "Levator function", and it can easily cause pseudoptosis. Most of the sunken cases are corrected only "levator surgery" and "preaponeurotic fat repositioning"

Most of patients or unprofessional surgeons chosen to perform fat injection on your upper eyelids to solve the sunkeness on your upper eyelids but that will be the last choice. Before having this thoughts you will consider to solve by use the pre-aponeurotic fat.

This patient did not have any fat injection on her upper eyelid
We just performed "Levator advancement and Pre-aponeurotic fat repositioning"
When we perform the reduction of the volume, it should be avoided to remove too much OOM of the lower flap. It is not effective for volume reduction and can make unnatural double fold, so you must find the right doctor who can perform and control the right amount of volume not to make a high & deep fold, low fold, upper flap reduction.

Nose surgery with rib cartilage in Korea

Many people, who are considering plastic surgery, are reluctant because they worry about foreign materials being put in their bodies. What options are there for them? 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 …
