4 Types of Non Incision Double Eyelid

As many may already know by now, there are 2 main types of double eyelid surgery:
the one with incision, and the one without incision.

The one without incision involves micro openings on the eyelid "without incision" so that the scarring and swelling is less and also has a faster recovery time. This method can be divided into 4 different types:

1. One Roof Non-Incision

The most simple method of the non-incision surgery

- Thickness of eyelid: for people with very thin lids 
- Double line: light or small 

The line is pinched only a couple times compared to the 3 times it usually is so there is a high chance of the double eyelid becoming loose.

2. Knot Non-Incision

The oldest method used 
- Thickness of eyelid: for people with very thin lids
- Double line: natural

This method is the original non-incision method, which involves tying individual knots so that there is an average chance of the double eyelid becoming loose.   

3. Consecutive Knot Non-incision

The most popular method 

- Thickness …

Trouble Eating because of Huge Chin

Real Story : Two Jaw Surgery
"I had two problems with my jaw - functional and aesthetic. 

My lower jaw was genetically larger and more sticking out than my upper jaw, so it was basically impossible for me to use my front teeth and also hard to chew food. I had more than one problem with the aesthetic part because I just hated taking pictures. 

Every time someone would look at my face, I wanted to hide my chin because it bothered me. So I lost confidence whenever I was around other people and had a hard time meeting new friends." 

     Before                                                                                        After

" My lifelong wish was to have a normal looking face. Now that I think about it, I've made a very smart decision by getting two jaw surgery. Right after the surgery, it was uncomfortable to breathe, but I got better pretty soon and I started eating soft foods. After I recovered, I could take in other foods like porridge and noodles. 

It's …

Minimal Incision for Square Jaw Reduction

Q: Hello, I am currently interested in getting square jaw surgery. I heard that there was a surgery with minimal incision. I'd like to know what kind of surgery it is and if the recovery time is faster. I need to know how many days I can get off work prior to the surgery :) 

A: The surgical method basically depends on the shape of your face, so for a more exact consultation, we recommend you to visit our hospital. Square jaw got its name from the large and angled jaw bone, which makes the face look bigger than it really is because of the edged bone right under the ears. Through square jaw surgery, the angular jaw bone is reduced and the frontal chin is slightly narrowed, giving the contour it a "v" shape. 

Not only is the protruding jaw bone reduced, but also the width of the bone so that the surgery can be done avoiding the nerves. With Wonjin's post care program that includes oxygen therapy and healite treatment, the swelling is less and the recovery is faster. 


Global Anti Aging Market Rising in Popularity

Recently, the anti aging market has been increasing in popularity within the beauty and aesthetic industry. In the past, people would search for the "fountain of youth" in hopes of avoiding their aging, and they were usually non scientific remedies.

However, in the 21st century, with various methods of treatments and functional cosmetics, medicine has developed over the years to be used for "living youthfully." Many apply functional cosmetics and also receive laser treatments for their wrinkles, some exercise and receive skin massages, and some receive hormone or stem cell injections. To receive these new and effective anti aging treatments, many foreigners are making their way over to Korea - one of the signs that Korea has become the global hub or anti aging.

In February, Wonjin Beauty Medical Group was crowded with a large group of Chinese patients from the morning.  These patients have come to Korea to receive lifting treatments to refine their wrinkles, and also…

Is using rib cartilage for nose revision surgery absolutely necessary?

Is using rib cartilage for nose revision surgery absolutely necessary?
Q: I am interested in getting nose revision surgery. What kind of material is used for revision surgeries? 
A: After getting nose surgery, people may consider revision surgery for a various number of reasons. The shape of the nose may be different, the implant may be too high, the nose tip may be too pointy, the implant may be loose and move, or there might not even be a nose tip. 
Surgical methods may change case by case: 
1. Slanted implant - the implant is first taken out, then space is made to match the implant to fit correctly

2. Loose implant - without opening the nose, the implant is placed under the periosteum 

3. Michael Jackson nose - the implant and altered cartilage in the tip are removed, and the tip is made to look natural again using the dermis and autologous tissue

4. Nose tip contraction - this revisional surgery can be done using septal cartilage or donated cartilage, and after the scars inside the nose …

Lifting for 30's

What are some effective lifting procedures for people in their 30's? 
People who are in their 20's~30's don't need major face lifting surgery because the skin is not sagging as much. Rather than an invasive surgery that requires cutting and pulling the skin, our doctors recommend a method which uses "surgical thread."

Thread lifting is effective for fine wrinkles, elasticity, smile lines, bulging cheeks, and a sharper jaw line. There are two types of thread lifting: the one using regular thread, and the one that uses melting thread. Both methods require a short amount of recovery time, and looks very natural.

One type of thread lifting called "V-lifting" uses medical thread that has 2-3 more times the spin, which is then inserted into dermis. The thread is pulled tightly, ultimately spreading the wrinkles with a semi-permanent effect. It is recommended not to get facial massages for 1~2 months and laser for 2 weeks.

A New Type of Surgery has Emerged

Lip surgery to raise the corners of your lips 

Q: I am interested in having raised lips like the ones that Korean male actors have. I think it looks attractive when you look like you're smiling, even when you're not. Is it possible to have surgery like this? 

A: This surgery is for people who have sagging lips that make the person look depressed and not lively. On the other hand, people who have raised lips look bright and positive, so the surgery has the effect of looking young again and lively. As some might think, this surgery is not going to be like the "Joker smile" (if you know what I mean)

Surgical Method: 

The muscle that pulls the lips downwards is removed. Then the skin and the muscle is lifted upwards so that the patient looks like they're slightly smiling. The appearance is very much determined by the angle of the lips, so you need to consult a highly skilled surgeon who knows how to relocate the skin and muscle around the lips. 

The treatment time is 30 …
