you have bags under your eyes? Do you look like you haven't
slept in days? Well luckily there is a solution for you!
can I do for this problem?
The lower eye lid blepharoplasty is done to reduce bulging
of the lower lid which helps you look less tired and worn
makes his approach different from other plastic surgeons?
Dr. Byun has two approaches which are the subcilliary
and the transconjunctival approach.
The subcilliary approach is recommended for patients with
excess bulging of the lower lid along with skin wrinkles
along the eye area. The incision follows the line along
the eyelashes making the scar hidden almost invisible.
He then removes fat from three pockets under the skin,
he is careful not to remove too much otherwise you would
have dark circles due to the hollowness.
transconjunctival approach is recommended for patients
with minor bulging, also known as the beginning stages
of lower lid skin ptosis. The advantage of this specific
approach is that there are no incisions made on the outside
of the eye. It is done through the conjunctiva with a
much down time is involved?
You will have to come back to see Dr.Byun one week post
surgery to have all sutures removed. You will experience
significant swelling 24-72 hours post surgery. Also, significant
bruising will occur. Oftentimes, the healing process differs,
so you may find some sutures still in place until Dr.
Byun feels proper healing has transpired. You should allow
3 months for complete healing,
time for subcilliary incision is 3-4 weeks until you could
return to work with light duty.
time for transconjunctival incision is about 3 days.
