What is Non-incision Lower Blepharoplasty (Fat Repositioning)?

Non-incision lower blepharoplasty and fat repositioning is a procedure that transforms a depressed and tired looking face to a refreshed and bright one.

The fatty tissues under the eyes can cause puffy bags and dark circles which make your face look older and tired. To address this, you can remove the bags and improve the sunken under-eye areas to create a bright and happy-looking face.

In the past, due to the limited surgical techniques, the fatty tissues that cause dark circles were simply removed without additional touches. However, the non-incision lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning technique is an advanced solution to improve the hollow areas under the eyes and lacrimal grooves. Thanks to this new technique, the lower eyelid will be elastic and flat giving the patients higher satisfaction with the operation results. 

JW conducts effective non-incision lower blepharoplasty by applying mixed methods, including transconjunctival fat removal and transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning. The precise procedure is decided based on each individuals’ condition.

The causes of dark circles

Try this self-diagnosis!
1

Excessive under-eye fat

Excessive under-eye fat pushes the muscles and blood vessels of the under-eye bags up, which in turn slows down its blood circulation. As a result, the color of the muscles may become visible through the thin under-eye skin.
2

Lack of under-eye fat

There are many blood vessels around the eyes. Since the under-eye skin is extremely thin, they can become visible. These veins are generally green in color; the combination of the green veins and lacrimal grooves causes a bluish dark hue under the eyes.
3

Hollow lacrimal grooves

There are hollows between the under-eye bags and the muscle tissue of the upper jawbone. The under-eye hollows form what is called lacrimal grooves. The lacrimal grooves can seem dark under the thin skin around the eyes. The combination of the muscles and the under-eye hollow lacrimal grooves can be visible in a blackish-red hue.
4

Excessive blood vessels under the eyes

The facial blood vessels are connected like a web. Particularly, the eyes are surrounded by many veins. If the veins become visible through the thin under-eye skin, the area can look blue or dark.
We recommend a non-incision lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning to:
  • Those who look tired and depressed due to dark circles under their eyes.
  • Those who appear older because of bulging bags under their eyes.
  • Those who have difficulty hiding the dark circles with make-up.

JW’s Knowhow for Non-incision Lower Blepharoplasty with Fat Repositioning

Excessive Fat
Lack of Fat
Dull Skin Tone
Wrinkles

Congenital excessive under-eye fat or weak under-eye structure may push the under-eye bags forward, which results in shadows under the eyes. This symptom can be improved through fat removal or repositioning.

Recommendation : Non-incision Lower Blepharoplasty

Its effects are maximized when you have good skin resilience without deep under-eye hollows and wrinkles.

Unlike other parts of the body, the under-eye skin with dark circles barely has subcutaneous fat. As a result, muscle tissue can be seen through the skin. To relieve this symptom, subcutaneous fat should be transplanted between the skin and muscles.

Recommendation : Three-dimensional Fat Repositioning

This procedure optimizes the harmony and balance of the face by adding fat into the hollow areas and removing fat where it’s excessive.

The thin under-eye skin is weak and sensitive to UV rays and other external stimuli. The under-eye skin may look darkish due to melanin in the skin cells.

Recommendation: Consult a Skin Clinic

In this case, we recommend continuous skincare such as whitening, skin recovery treatment, and light skin peeling using vitamin C and skin growth factors.

Taut under-eye bags may cause deep hollows as well. Most people experience wrinkles as they age, but some experience this symptom because of their congenital weakness and taut under-eye bags. 

Recommendation : Rewind Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty effectively removes the under-eye wrinkles.

Procedure of the Operation

Caution Before Eye Surgery

  • Refrain from drinking or eating for at least four hours before the operation.
  • To minimize irritating the surgical site, bring clothes, such as a T-shirt or a big shirt, that can be put on easily.
  • To reduce post-operation complications and bleeding, avoid smoking for at least four weeks before the operation. Smoking also causes post-nasal drip which increases sneezing and coughing.
  • If you have a cold or cold-like disease, which can lead to breathing issues, please let your doctor know on the day of the surgery.
  • Stop the intake of medication that disrupts hemostasis (hormonal drugs, vitamin E, aspirin, oral contraceptive pills, etc.) at least one week before the surgery. If you are taking these medications for heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. inform your consulting doctor.
  • On the day before the operation, take a bath and wash your hair. Remove your makeup and clean your teeth before surgery. Contact lenses, pedicure, and nail polish, as well as any type of accessories should be removed as well.

Caution After Eye Surgery

  • Resume washing your face with water from the day after the stitches are removed. You will be able to take a shower as well but avoid public baths and saunas.
  • Take your medication on time and follow the doctor's orders. Avoid aspirin or hormonal drugs.
  • Avoid drinking and smoking for four weeks; it can hinder your recovery.
  • An ice pack can relieve swelling during the first three days. Afterward, you can use a warm pack for two to three days. Keep the surgical site lifted and higher than your heart to avoid additional swelling. Drinking water before bedtime can cause more swelling.
  • The healing process varies from person to person; you should give your body some time for a full recovery.
