Eyelid Surgery Q & A

This saying has become a history nowadays. However, why do anxieties and revisions still increase continuously? The ordinary non-incision method to “pinch” the eyelid possesses high possibility that the double eyelid will be released. In Wonjin, we don’t form double eyelids forcibly. The natural fascia fixing method in Wonjin forms natural double eyelid by inducing the inner skin to stick together. Moreover, the number of knots tied dual-prevents the double eyelid from releasing. Go to IncisionNon-Incision

You don’t have to worry even if you have small eyes or thick eyelids from now on. This is because the natural fascia fixing method in Wonjin Beauty Medical Group widens the eye length by controlling the eyelid muscles and remove unnecessary fats without incision.

Wonjin won’t offer Double eyelid surgery to every small eyed patients, nor we proceed Ptosis Correction just because the eyelid has become droopy. With Wonjin’s natural muscle fixing method created by our know-how, you can get the effect of Double Eyelid surgery and Ptosis Correction at once!

Double Eyelid has become more firm, and no worries of becoming a shocked bunny eyes like ordinary double eyelid surgeries in existence. This is because natural pretty eyes can be formed even without incision.

Many are diagnosed to do Ptosis Correction just because they have drowsy-looking eyes. However, unless the eyelid covers more than 1/3 of the pupils, natural muscle fixing method can be used to correct the drowsy-looking eyes.

The answer is “YES”. The reason to this answer is because bigger eyes can be made through natural muscle fixing method without relying on the double eyelid.

We proceed this kind of surgery commonly for male patients or those who doesn’t want a big change on the impression. In this case, it is utmost to utilize his/her individuality.

Double eyelid surgeries might seem the same. However, the surgery outcome differ totally depending on how the muscle is hooked and fixed and how the stitches are tied with how many knots.

Wonjin’s Double thread-burying method doesn’t simply “pinch” the eyelids, rather we “form” double eyelids and fix them with double knots to prevent the eyelids from releasing.

Instead of just tying the thread twice, we combined the advantage of natural adhesion that induces the eyelid and the muscle tissues to stick naturally and double-tying method that ties the eyelids both inside and outside to prevent the eyelids from releasing.

The surgery outcome is completely different depending on the surgeon’s ability, even if same type of thread is used. Human’s eyelids are thin and weak, therefore detailed skill is needed.

Wonjin inserts thread into the skin through tiny holes without incision to prevent irritation on the skin and inflammation. Because the knots are tied deep inside the eyelids and the double eyelids are formed smoothly along the eye lines, you can be rest assured that the scars and stitches can’t be seen mostly.

It is mostly possible unless the eyelids very thick, and people of age from 20~30 prefer this method.

The disadvantage of non-incision method in existence was that only the strength of thread was used to lift the skin and muscle as a lump. As the result, the thread was easily released when it becomes weak.

Wonjin’s double thread-burying method adheres muscle and skin tissues together, and clear eyes can be formed because it fixes the double eyelid line with finer thread.

Although thick eyelids are incised, the incision slit is very small. Therefore, it is close to non-incision method and the double eyelids are as natural as non-incision method.

The scars aren’t visible as they are hidden by the double eyelid incised along the lines and the scars fade after 3~5 months.

If you decide to use partial incision method only because you feel obliged for incision, the probability of release is rather high and you can’t get a satisfying result.

If the eyelids are a little thick, fats can be removed by partial incision method. However, it can’t remove the fats as much as incision method and the droopy skin can’t be removed either. Therefore, incision method is effective if the eyelids are rather thick and droopy. Surgery method is decided according to the eye shape and eyelid skin condition, not the scar remaining, swelling or personal preferences.

Seems that many avoid incision method because of anxieties caused by false understandings.

Double eyelid doesn’t become thick because of incision, it is rather depending on the surgeon’s skill in designing the double eyelid lines.

Natural double eyelids can be made according to the initial plan if the incision and suture matches the fine line designed before the surgery.

The thought that incision leaves scar is also wrong. It is not the matter of incision, but the surgeon’s ability itself.

Although swelling subsidence and recovery of scar take slightly longer because the incision slit of the incision method is bigger than other methods, the reddish incision scar mostly fades after 3~5 months as much as even specialists can’t differentiate whether it is incision or non-incision method.

This is Wonjin’s skills indeed and the reason why patients can be rest assured to receive incision method.

Lifting a low double eyelid is easy, but skilled technique is needed for making thick double eyelids low.

Non-incision method can be simply corrected by removing the stitches. As for cases that incision has taken place on the other hand, the engrafted tissues should be relaxed and scars should be healed by designing a lower line than the double eyelid in existence.

It is a complicated surgery indeed, but no need to worry so much since the double eyelid lines can be lowered more than half without leaving any deep scars in Wonjin.

If the vertical length of eyes are originally big, the effect would be better. However, a big change can’t be highly anticipated with canthoplasty only.

Usually, a more dramatic effect can be seen if canthoplasty is done together with double eyelid surgeries.

2~3mm for Epicanthoplasty, 4~5mm for Lateral canthoplasty can be opened to widen the horizontal length of the eyes thus making the eyes bigger and deep.

The inner corner of the eyes are sensitive to scars and therefore incision part and careful design is very important.

It usually leaves white scar as the outer skin of the Mongolian fold is incised.

To overcome this, Wonjin incises a little bit on the conjunctiva in the eyes and sutures towards the inner skin so that scars aren’t visible from outside.

Wonjin does not focus simply on widening the eye length.

We must consider the balance of exposure of red flesh in the inner corner of eyes and the distance between the glabella when doing the Epicanthoplasty.

A slight difference of 1mm can overly expose the red flesh or the eyes might look to close towards each other. Therefore, Epicanthoplasty is recommended only when it is needed and the balance should be the utmost priority.

The main purpose of Canthoplasty is not only making bigger eyes but correcting the shape to make pretty eyes.

If the slanted eyes give a sharp impression, Lateral Hot’z can be done to incise the lower part on the outer corner downwards as an oval shape. This way, a much cuter impression can be formed.

The tissues often stuck back again during the recovery stage after canthoplasty surgeries in existence because the outer skin was incised.

To prevent this, Wonjin incises the inner conjunctiva of the eyes and removes the mucous membrane that sticks skin completely. For this reason, you don’t have to worry about the recurrence.

The cause of under eye dullness is complex, it needs to be treated according to its factors.

If the under eye isn’t so droopy and the fats stick out, the fats should be removed. If the under eye is sunk and it’s dark due to dark circles, fat should be injected or reposition is needed to form bright and smooth under eye.

However, if the skin is extremely droopy due to aging, lower blepharoplasty surgery that removes droopy skin is effective. Although under eye surgery is simple, it should be done by a skilled specialist as detailed incision of conjunctiva on the inner eyes is needed.

When aging takes place, dark circles appear when the layer that is wrapping the fat under eye becomes droopy and the eyes are shaded. Dark circles may appear in the 20s if the fat layer is too weak by nature. The dark circles become more obvious when the person is tired and return to its original state when they take enough rest.

Although having dark circles is not a disease, pigmentation will be severe from time to time and the fats could solidify when the elasticity under the eye is lost. For brighter impression, dark circles should be treated.

Fat filling surgery is rather simple, but under eye could become bulgy or the fats could be easily absorbed if the fats are injected into the skin as common fat filling methods.

In Wonjin, side effects mostly don’t occur as the fats are filled from the deep skin and the reposition of tissues strongly grabs them. In addition, fats from the eye sides are used because they are most similar to the under eye tissues to create more natural and elastic eyes.

Some say that filler forms a bulge under the eyes and thus form an unnatural impression, this could be interpreted as “the surgeon is lacking of skill”.

Although love band filler is simply done within 10 minutes, a slight difference of volumes may change the impression. This is why the surgeon’s experience and skill are very important. A cute and natural impression can be created in Wonjin as the skillful surgeon not only fills up the procedure part but also design in detail and raise the volume carefully as if he is correcting the eye shape.

Some people are concerned because every surgeon gives a different diagnosis for droopy eyes. Although both ptosis correction and blepharoplasty help the eyes to be wide opened, different surgical method is used depending on the droop level.

If the eyelids aren’t so droopy and the eyes look sleepy due to weak muscles, ptosis correction is appropriate. If it is blepharoptosis that more than ½ of the pupils are covered due to droopy eyelids or the eyelashes poke the eyes, upper blepharoplasty that removes the droopy skin is suitable. Accurate diagnosis is essential as the surgical method may differ according to the droop level of eyelids.

Many middle aged people end up having thick and cheesy double eyelids after Upper Blepharoplasty. Commonly, the droopy eyes were removed and the eyelids were made thicker. Wonjin NEVER focuses on making the double eyelids.

As the aim is to make the eyes open comfortably and clearly, droopy muscle in the skin is tightly corrected to grow the size of the eyes. Therefore, a younger impression can be formed with thin double eyelids or without double eyelids so there is no need to worry.

You need ptosis correction if you habitually frown your eyebrows and forehead every time you open your eyes because they can’t be opened comfortably.

Ptosis is recommended when the levator muscle is weakened due to aging, this can be fixed by shortening the droopy levator muscle of the Upper Blepharoplasty to prevent droopy eyes and thus baby-face effect can be gained as the forehead wrinkles are also eliminated.

A natural effect depends on the moderation and how the suture is done even if the same skin removal is needed. Droopy under eyes that sticks out due to aging will be corrected with lower blepharoplasty.

The skin right under the eyes is very thin and weak so incision area will be bruised and scarred. Wonjin incises the inner line of under eyelashes instead of the outer skin to remove and repose fats then remove droopy skin, leaving almost no scars.

Although making double eyelid lines higher is easy, forming lower double eyelids once a high double eyelids made by incision method needs extremely experienced skills. Loosening the adhered tissues with minimum scars is important.

If the eyelids are thick, fat should be removed and new lower double eyelid lines should be created without leaving visible scars. Double line correction is made with suitable methods according to the remaining skin amount so there is no need to worry.

Incision is not necessary if the double eyelids are loosened after non-incision or partial incision eyelid surgery.

If the problem was because fats were not removed although the eyelids are thick or the knot wasn’t properly tied, it can be tightly corrected with double-tying or partial incision method after making slimmer eyelids. If however, incision surgery was done, correction after an accurate diagnosis is recommended as scars should be removed and a new double eyelid line should be formed.

Many hesitate Epicanthoplasty revision due to scarring. This surgery needs a highly sophisticated technique as to its difficulty. Wonjin minutely reconstructs the Mongolian fold that has been overly cut.

The tissues around the front edge is removed and attached in a Y-shape. At this point, minimizing the damage of tissues and scars and forming a mild impression is important. Revision surgery is done 6 months after the surgery, when the tissues after the first surgery is healed. The outcome is very natural, so you don’t have to worry so much

Swelling remains even 2~3 months after surgery and therefore the double eyelids may seem uneven.

As the swelling remains until 6 months after surgery, it is hard to judge the eye shape. Therefore, don’t make a rush decision to do a revision surgery. Take some time and observe. If however, the asymmetry is obvious even after 6 months, revision surgery should be considered through accurate diagnosis.
