Look 10 years younger


Anti aging basics

The pursuit of staying or at least looking younger has inspired myths and legends all over the world, inspiring stories of immortal mythical heroes and villains. In the 16th century, the Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon even set out on an expedition to find the fountain of youth in the Americas, investing serious time, effort and money in the process. If you ever found yourself wishing you could return to your glowing twenties, you are certainly not alone.

One of the things that most people struggle with would be the dark and puffy circles around the eyes. There are of course a whole range of both medical and home remedies available, but none of them are guaranteed to have long lasting effects. Fortunately, there is a simple procedure for removing the circles around your eyes and which can help you look much younger, known as blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical cosmetic procedure aimed at addressing signs of aging around the eyes. Blepharoplasty can be divided into upper and lower blepharoplasty, referring to the upper and lower parts of the eye. If you experience loose or sagging skin that creates folds, fatty deposits which cause puffiness in the eyelids, bags under the eyes, drooping lower eyelids or excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid, you are a great candidate for this procedure, and contacting a plastic surgeon would be the next step.

Upper blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelift, focuses on droopy eyelids that have started to sag, due to the effects of aging and gravity. This phenomenon is common in females and males older than forty-five and as time goes on the eyelid starts to lose elasticity and sag even more.

An upper blepharoplasty will lift the eyelid, and tighten the skin above the eye which results in a more youthful, alert appearance. The procedure is performed by making an incision along the crease of the eyelid and removing some skin to tighten the eyelid. In more severe cases the doctor will also remove fat and muscle. After the removal, the doctor will suture the incision along the crease.

The procedure will take no more than an hour, and your stay in the hospital will be the same amount of time. If you are traveling from abroad, it is recommended that you stay in Seoul around a week to give yourself a rest, and you can return to normal activities again in around 10-14 days. Full recovery and healing will take no more than 6 months.

To address baggy eyes or dark circles under the eyes, the procedure to go for is lower blepharoplasty. Bags under the eyes is another symptom of aging and is caused by gravity pulling on the skin and the skin losing its elasticity over time.
Similar to upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty is performed by making an incision about 3mm below the lower eyelash line. Loose skin is excised and fat is removed and/or repositioned under the eye, to give the eye a more youthful appearance. The procedure and recovery time is exactly the same as with upper blepharoplasty.
