Under Eye Wrinkles Removal-Lower Blepharoplasty
Treating and identifying the underlying cause of wrinkles
The skin gets saggy and begins to have wrinkles as people get older. The characteristics of sub epidermal dermis maintain the elasticity of the skin while such as the elastic fiber and moisture content play important roles.
There are various types of wrinkles, and they can be categorized into the fine wrinkles formed by repeated exposure to UV, the forehead wrinkles, the grabella folds or epicanthus lateralis (so called crow’s feet) is formed due to the repeated contraction of face muscles, the mental line wrinkles are formed by sagging, the inherent neck wrinkles, the nasolabial crease formed by multiple causes.
The treatment method differs for each cause. Surgical procedure is preferentially recommended when treating under eye wrinkles and under-eye bags but in case of micro fine wrinkles, which are typically formed due to exposure to the sun light, are treated by laser treatment.
Surgical procedures for under eye wrinkles and its recovery period
The surgical procedure of lower Blepharoplasty is to make transverse incision to the root side of inner eye lash of lower eyelid and to cut the droopy skin out by calculation. Also for under-eye thick fat pads can be removed partially and especially if the boundary of the periorbita is noticeable, or if the patient has baggy skin under the eyes, it can be fixed by delicately spreading the fat.
By using the dual approach which removes the fat through the inner red conjunctiva, no damage in the orbicularis oculi muscle occurs and also the lower sclera of the eyes of the patient does not get exposed so the recovery period is short and hence the patients can return to their daily lives within a short period of time.
The scar does not show very much as it remains hidden under the eyelashes. Swelling and bruises are recovered after 1-2 weeks post operation, and make-up is possible from day one after the removal of the stitches. (Approximately one week)
If the skin is excised too much, the sclera of the eyes can be exposed (scleral characteristics), but if the surgery is done after accurate calculation and done based on various experiences there is no need to worry.
The Lacrimal Groove (The lower medial part of lower eyelid) is formed innately or has been acquired by serve hallow region in the lower medial periorbita.
It is a surgical procedure that makes the sunken area to protrude by spreading fat of the lower eyelid downwards. This procedure is recommended to older patients and patients who have fat convex.
The Micro-fat Injection is also a great surgical procedure that gives elasticity to the lower region of the eyes. It is a method which achieves effective results using the filler injection materials.
