Like Upper Eyelid Surgery, this is also to remove loose skin, muscle and protruded under-eye fat. Different techniques can be applied depending on the severity of skin sagging and other conditions.
◆ Different Techniques of Lower Eyelid Surgery
1. If under-eye fat pads are protruded
Under-Eye Fat Removal
-Part of under-eye fat is resected through a small incision on the conjunctiva.
This is effective to remove part of protruded fat under the eye that has young and elastic skin.
Because excessive resection of skin during Lower Eyelid Surgery causes ectropion, in which lower eyelid is turned outward, patients are strongly advised to have surgery from experienced and skilled eyelid surgery specialist.
2. Remove bulging under-eye fat pads and dark circles at once

3. Remove fine lines
-Bulging under-eye fat is removed, and in order to prevent it from protruding, orbicular muscle is lifted through a small incision in the outer corner of the eye and orbital septum is also fixed in the lateral direction.
-This procedure resects skin only and is appropriate for those who have no protruding under-eye fad but have developed plenty fine lines due to loose skin.
4. Remove bulging under-eye fat pads and dark circles at once
Repositioning of Fat
5. Improve sagging lower eyelid and cheeks at once
- This procedure moves protruding under-eye fat pads to lower area, and spreads and fixes them. The depressions under dark circles can be corrected at the same time.
- If both lower eyelids and cheeks are sagging, this method raises fat layer under the muscle on the cheekbone area. This procedure rejuvenates the overall area.
