Lower Blepharoplasty

What is Lower Blepharoplasty?

As the fats around the eyes sink due to aging, the lines under the eyes tend to make the eyes look very tired, which ages us. You can improve this aging effect on the eyes by removing the sagging skin and unnecessary fats. This removal method reduces and has a tightening effect on the skin and wrinkles around the eyes.

Lower Blepharoplasty is a surgery to reshape the skin of the lower eyelids by excising eye bags and excess fats in the lower eyelids. So, Lower Blepharoplasty is an appropriate surgical procedure for rejuvenation the eyes, especially the lower eyelid area.

Operation Process

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between Under Eye Fat Repositioning and Lower Blepharoplasty?

A: Under Eye Fat Repositioning is focused on the correction of the lacrimal groove. During the Under Eye Fat Repositioning surgery, fats under the lacrimal groove are repositioned. The Lower Blepharoplasty surgery is focused on not only the correction of the lacrimal groove but also the incision of loose skin around the eyes in order to make the eyes tighter.

Q: Could the eyes recur after the Lower Blepharoplasty surgery?

A: After a long time, the skin around the eyes could become loose again. At Answer Plastic Surgery, Dr. Choi minimizes this recurrence by the correction of the lacrimal groove and loose skin with his experience and know-how.

Q: Does Lower Blepharoplasty surgery remove the bags under the eyes?

A: No, it does not. At the Answer Plastic Surgery, Dr. Choi does not get rid of the muscles that make the bags under the eyes during the Lower Blepharoplasty surgery. So, the bags under the eyes would not be removed after the Lower Blepharoplasty.

Facts about this procedure

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
