In medical terms, the area surrounding eyes is called the orbit. Around this site there is fat just like any other part of body. What supports and holds the fat is the skin and when the skin becomes resilient and flabby, that particular phenomenon signifies as skin aging. As it is mentioned about what is aging up above, this typical protruding fat which reform another fat layer after being pushed to underneath the eyes due to skin aging is the lower eyelid fat. This fat may be seen as dark circles when the skin pigmentation settles over the skin or along the physical shape beside the nose, and there may be shade near the nose which makes it look darker and gloomy. Therefore, it can be influence social relationships by provoking misunderstanding due to facial expression as the skin ages with wrinkles. For example, you may have been told that you look tired or sad due to dark circles. The key point of transconjunctival fat repositioning is for relocating the fat without removing fat as the word indicates.
The following procedure is how the process goes for transconjunctival fat repositioning :
1. Local anesthesia
2. Dissect the internal lower of eyes conjunctiva
3. Separates the fats
4. Fixating separated fats by pushing into bottom of orbital socket with a stitching fiber.
The main purpose of transconjunctival fat repositioning is minimize of any possible chance of side-effects by repositioning transconjunctival fat around the orbit by not eliminating it.
Advantages: 1. Permanent non-invasive treatment
2. Returning to daily life is possible the next day after the surgery
Discomfort: 1. Swelling or bruises can happen around the eyes.
In modern medical technology, there is a special needle only for transconjunctival fat
repositioning surgery so it is much more convenient than it used to be and actually the
operation time has decreased.
If you are planning to have this surgery, I would suggest you undergo the procedure by a doctor who is well experienced and knows exactly what the surgery is for. It will be even better to have the surgery done by the first doctor, Dr. Jang Chul Ho who invented this specific needle! So here is the brief introduction from the doctor at Wannabe Plastic Surgery about the needle known as Chang's needle which has a patent application with his words.
"I invented the Chang's needle and made it for a patented application. Also, the new internal fixation of transconjunctival fat repositioning method was published in September at Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Global Open. This proves that the originality and utility of its surgery method officially gained recognition. The method combines the advantages from each different surgery method which are internal fixation and externalized percutaneous suture method. Every day, I studied hard about how I could develop and improve the original surgery method to be better to perform as well as for patients. And finally, my contribution is recognized in public which made me extremely happy. From now on I will put my efforts into developing more surgical methods and medical equipment so that more patients can receive benefits."
