REWIND Incision Lower Blepharoplasty

Bulging under-eye wrinkles reveal signs of aging. Regain the beautiful and youthful you.

What is REWIND Incision Lower Blepharoplasty?

REWIND Incision Lower blepharoplasty can create a bright-looking eye shape and add a youthful feel to your image.

As we age, the eyelids’ skin becomes thin and the muscles around the eyes loosen. The skin under the eyes, which has lost elasticity, starts to become saggy with creases forming. The layer that covers the fat inside the skin starts to lose its supporting capacity and the fat slowly leaks from the layer. These changes cause dark circles around the eyes, regardless of the patient’s age. The combination of saggy skin under the eyes and the dark circles makes one look much older than his or her actual age as well as a worried or stressed appearance.

Most hospitals solve this problem by removing and cutting, so the initial impression looks rather fierce. 
But at JW, we maintain and raise your youthful look through the process of lifting and filling, making you look 10 years younger. 

 

JW’s REWIND Incision Lower blepharoplasty is a mixed lower blepharoplasty type procedure that is complemented with lower blepharoplasty and a cheek lift.

Self-Diagnosis of the aging process In The Eye Area

1

Sagging skin below the eyes

Due to gravity, the skin can loosen and move from its original position on the bone.
2

Decreased of Soft Tissue Volume

The soft tissue under the eyes can start to shrink due to aging and make the under-eyes look sunken.
3

Bulging Fat

Congenital excessive under-eye fat or weak under-eye structure may push the under-eye bags forward. This causes shadows under the eyes. This symptom can be improved through fat removal or repositioning.
4

Visible Lacrimal Grooves

The lacrimal grooves can be visible in some cases and look darkish under the thin eye skin. When it combines with the color of the muscles it might look blackish red.
5

Mid-facial Sagging

The area under the eyes is closely connected with midface. Once there are signs of aging on the eyes it will spread out to the midface as well.
6

Loss of The Fat Under The Eyes (Lovebands)

The reduced volume of tissue under the eyes can cause loss of love bands.

Preoperative diagnosis for better 1:1 customized professional surgery

#1 | Preoperative diagnosis to have the most satisfactory results

Analyze your eye characteristics. When you know your eye best you’ll be able to get high satisfaction from the operation.

Amount of sagging skin under the eyes

Amount of peeling off skins could be changed depends on the condition of sagging skin.

The Presence of Protruding Zygoma (Cheekbone)

In cases of protruding zygoma (cheekbone) fat removal has to be minimal and the operation will be modified depending on the level of zygoma protrusion.

State of the Upper Eyelid Skin Groove

When there are visible upper eyelid skin grooves, the under-eye fat must be preserved during the operation to lessen the visibility of the groove.

Lacrimal Groove

Check the state of the grooves under the eye or eye bag.

Level of protruding eye

To have a more dimensional effect of an eye, there is a need for fixation of muscles to bones but the fixed point can be changed depends on the level of protrusion.

The Amount of Bulging Fat

Based on the amount of bulging fat, the operation method is adjusted to reposition the proper amount of fat per case.

#2 | Pre-operation diagnoses to prevent retraction after the procedure

Using the thumb and index finger,  the skin and orbicularis oculi muscle attached to it will be pinched making the closing of the eyelid difficult.

Then we can determine the needed level of the skin or lower eyelid relaxation based on the level of adhesion between lower eyelid skin and orbicularis oculi muscle.

We can also examine the elasticity of the lower eyelid by checking the speed at which the lower eyelid returns to its original position after being released.

JW’s Specialty REWIND Incision Lower Blepharoplasty

JW’s REWIND Incision lower blepharoplasty is different from the conventional lower blepharoplasty. Under-eye wrinkles can be reduced by fat repositioning, front facial wrinkles can be reduced by a cheek lift, and the under-eye love bands can be recovered through pulling sagging under-eye muscles. This is a Korean eye surgery method that allows excellent dark circle reduction as well.

REWIND Incision Lower Blepharoplasty Procedure

Step 1

Make an incision below the eyes

Step 2

Incision on orbicularis oculi muscle Core Techniques 1: Muscle Preservation Orbicularis oculi muscle is an eye closing muscles that must be preserved to the fullest to maintain their function. Long incisions make surgery easier, but we use minimal incisions to maintain nerve preservation, tension and prevent eye strain.

Step 3

Peeling of skin tissues Core Techniques 2: Full separation of SOOF Underneath the eye is a place where many facial nerves pass so it is very difficult to peel this area and go down deep. But JW's unique technique allows for deep peeling, which results in a wider range of pulling and a more obvious improvement.

Step 4

Fat repositioning • removal Core Techniques 3: Fat arrangement 1. Raise the protruding fat under the eyes up to improve sag. 2. Move the fat in front of the eyes down to the furrow under the eyes to create a volume. 3. Removing the outer fat will make the cheekbone more visible so we will not touch it.

Step 5

Make original under-eye shape Core Techniques 4: Fix the orbicularis oculi muscle (OOM Sling) This is a procedure that binds orbicularis oculi muscle to the bones. In addition, the elasticity under the eyes is tight, preventing eye hallow. Since each person has a different degree of eye protrusion and bone position, it is important to accurately predict and operate because the shape of the eye varies greatly depending on how and where the muscle is fixed.

Step 6

Lift the skin and remove excess skin Core Techniques 5: Skin resection Removing too much skin can lead to eye stiffness, as the eyes cannot close completely. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain the appropriate amount and to remove excess skin accurately.
