Non-incision Lower Blepharoplasty

Transformed facial image from depressed and tired look to refreshed and bright face

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

Non-incision lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning transforms a depressed and tired look to become a refreshed and bright face.

Under the eyes, fatty tissues form bulging puffy bags. These bags cause dark circles around one’s eyes and would give a tired look or appear older than actual age. In this case, while removing the bulging puffy bags, improving hollow areas under the eyes would create a brighter face.

In the past, the fatty issues that cause dark circles were simply removed due to a limited surgical option technique. However, a non-incision lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning is an advanced technique that provides multiple solutions for hollow areas under the eyes and lacrimal grooves. Through this new technique, the lower eyelid would be elastically flat and patients would reveal better satisfaction with the operation results than the conventional operation. JW conducts effective non-incision lower blepharoplasty by taking mixed methods, including transconjunctival fat removal and transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning, according to individuals’ conditions.

The causes of dark circles

Try this self-diagnosis!

Excessive under-eye fat

Excessive under-eye fat pushes the muscles and blood vessels of the under-eye bags forward and slows down blood circulation. As a result, the color of the muscles may be visible under the thin under-eye skin.

Lack of under-eye fat

There are a number of blood vessels around the eyes. Since the under-eye skin is extremely thin, the blood vessels may be visible. Veins are generally green. A combination of this color and the lacrimal grooves causes bluish dark circles.

Hollow lacrimal grooves

There are under-eye hollows between the under-eye bags and the muscle tissue of the upper jawbone. The under-eye hollows form the lacrimal grooves. The lacrimal grooves are seen as being darkish under the thin under-eye skin. Being combined with the color of the muscles and the under-eye hollows, it looks blackish red.

Excessive blood vessels under the eyes

The blood vessels of the face are connected to each other like a web. Particularly, the eyes are surrounded by veins. When the veins are seen under the thin under-eye skin, it looks bluish or darkish.
We recommend a non-incision lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning to:
  • Those who have a tired and depressed look due to dark circles.
  • Those who appear older due to bulging fatty bags under their eyes.
  • Those who have difficulties to hide dark circles by make-up.

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

Excessive Fat
Lack of Fat
Dull Skin Tone

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 under-eye 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 under the thin under-eye skin. To relieve this symptom, a proper amount of subcutaneous fat should be transplanted between the skin and muscles.

Recommendation : Three-dimensional Fat Repositioning

It optimizes the harmony and balance of the face by inserting fat into the hollow areas and removing excessive fat.

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

Recommendation : Skin Clinic

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

The taut under-eye bags may cause deep under-eye hollows. Most people experience deep wrinkles as they age, but some people experience this symptom due to 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

  • You must stop eating any food at least four hours before an operation.
  • Bring clothing you can easily change into without irritating the surgical sites, such as a shirt or a big T-shirt.
  • Cigarettes may cause phlegm, sneezing, or bleeding after an operation. We strongly recommend that you stop smoking for two weeks before an operation.
  • A serious cold may reduce your trachea and respiratory functions. Please inform your doctor in advance if you happen to be suffering from a serious cold on the day of surgery.
  • You must stop taking any medications that might disturb hemostasis (oral contraceptive pills, hormonal drugs, vitamin E, aspirin, etc.) at least one week before an operation. If you are currently receiving treatment for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or thyroid disease, you must inform your doctor in advance.
  • We recommend that you take a bath and wash your head on the day before an operation. You must remove makeup and wash your teeth on the day of surgery. In addition, you must remove your contact lenses, any accessories, nail polish, and pedicure.

Caution After Eye Surgery

  • You can wash your face with water from the day after the stitches are removed. You may take a shower but should refrain from using a sauna or a public bath.
  • You must take the medications on time as prescribed by a physician and refrain from taking aspirin or hormonal drugs.
  • Refrain from smoking or drinking, which may delay your recovery, for at least four weeks after an operation.
  • Apply an ice pack on the surgical site for the first three days. Then, apply a warm pack on the site for two to three days. Placing the surgical sites on a higher position than your heart helps to reduce swelling. Refrain from drinking water before you go to sleep to prevent swelling.
  • As each individual has different health conditions, bruising or swelling may disappear at different rates. Please allow time until bruising or swelling disappears.
