[An Introduction to Banobagi Plastic Surgery]
The answer for Ptosis, 'Non-incision ptosis correction'!
It is often said that the first impression is made on first meet of 3~5 seconds.
According to a study by American psychologist Albert Merabian,
the first image consists of 55% visual, 35% auditory and 7% linguistic elements.
It means that appearance has big impact on the first impression.
Our eyes take a big part among the face and the first face to face gaze is the moment
where eyes last the longest.
A clear and bright eye gets a good score on first impression
but a sleepy and blurry eye makes less good impression.
Especially if people around you often said that you look sleepy
or if you feel that you need to give more energy to open your eyes,
you should suspect a ptosis.
Normally when the eyes are opened naturally,
80 ~ 90% of the pupil should be seen but if there is a ptosis,
the eyelids covered the eyes pupil and it looks sleepy or stuffy.
Ptosis caused by natural inherent weakness of lifting the eyelids
or due to acquired aging, trauma and various habits.
Sometimes there are people who try to solve ptosis by double eyelid surgery.
If you only get eyelid surgery done,
you can imagine that your eyes will look bigger and become clearer.
However, ptosis is basically a symptom of weak eye muscles that covers pupil,
so it can’t be solved only by receiving double eyelid surgery.
Instead of double eyelid surgery,
tension muscle should be controlled through eye correction surgery.
If you have eyelid ptosis and do not correct them but only get double eyelid surgery;
even if the double eyelids are made, not only unnatural,
they are likely going to be uneven eyelid and even if you have another eyelid surgery,
the chance for it to get loose is high.
Eye correction surgery is a technique to improve the root that caused of ptosis
and strengthens the power to open the eye
and can change sleepy looking eye into a clearer eye.
It depends on the cases; double eyelid surgery and combination surgery
along with aesthetic area should be fully considered.
Most of the time, eye correction is performed by using incision method.
However, since this method incised the upper part of the eyelid,
there are some minus points because it leaves scar or takes long recovery.
In recent years, there has been a good result of a surgical method called
"Non-incision ptosis correction".
Non-incision ptosis correction is a surgery that sews a thread inside the eyelid
without incision to tie a part of the eye-lifting muscles
and reduce the length of the muscle.
When the muscle length is shorten, the strength of the eye is relatively strong,
and it is possible to have sharp and clear eye.
Above all, you can see the effect as much as incision method
but recovery to daily life is quick and double eyelid line is as natural.
Although the recovery period is individual, it usually takes 5 to 7 days to recover
and the latest is almost a month for the surgical area.
Non-incision ptosis correction surgery is more difficult than double eyelid surgery
because it is an operation that ties and fixes the muscles.
Therefore, it is suggested to get surgery by a specialist
In addition, it is difficult to understand the condition of your own eyes,
so it is better to consult with the specialist.
