Hi guys, I feel like not many people on here mentioned VG Plastic Surgery ( maybe because the place is not heavily promoted in foreigners).I’ve been silently considering my revision rhinoplasty because I’ve never been satisfied with my primary rhinoplasty.It always felt like a really big decision to make but I constantly got annoyed at my nose. I hated taking pictures from the front because of my uneven nose ( kind like collapsed the left side of the nose).I found out about VG plastic surgery by chance while I read the reviews on the Purseforum blog, someone has mentioned the name of VG. I stumbled across a video on YouTube and Instagram. I liked the whole feeling of the hospital so I contacted them.They do 1:1 online consultation which was nice. The English consultant Julia, she is the one who assisted me and arranged for me to get a direct online consultation with Dr.Im Young Min ( CEO of VG and specialized in revision rhinoplasty ). She worked tirelessly to help me when I was doing online consultation and in-person consultation in Korea, to just before and all throughout after my surgery. She was always making herself available to me either in person at the clinic or online via LINE. She's probably one of the busiest employees at the clinic as she handles all of the English speakings foreign patients. I really appreciate her.Dr.Im Young Min is really good with rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, and alarplasty ( has natural & dolly looking results). Dr.Im seemed professional and straightforward about what can and cannot be done. I feel like it’s better to know beforehand instead of being disappointed because of unrealistic expectations.It’s about 3 months post-op and so far I am liking the results. I have not regretted getting my revision rhinoplasty at VG Plastic Surgery. Overall I have a great experience and now I’m waiting for my final results ❤️

I haven’t had any type of plastic surgery before so I was a little nervous going in, but all the staff at 1mm made it really easy for me. My areas of focus were the lower abdomen, lower arm, axillary breast tissue and inner thighs. During my online consultation they let me know that since I was already slim mini lipo would be a better option for me. When I came in for my in-person consultation the doctor and consulting staff were very thorough in asking what kind of shaping I wanted and also letting me know what would and would not be possible, which I appreciated. On the day of the surgery I was quite nervous but as they explained what was going to happen it helped calm me down and by the time it came to the actual surgery I was more excited than anything else. Before the surgery I met with the doctor one last time so that he could map the areas. He said he thought I looked pretty calm. Nice to know I’m good at acting. Right after the surgery I met with the doctor again who explained how everything went, which it thankfully went according to plan, and just answered any questions I had regarding aftercare. I’ve heard instances of people describing the procedure as painful but rather than that I would say it felt more like discomfort equatable to a muscle ache. I was even able to catch a bus home myself a few hours after. This was my first ever surgical procedure of any kind and the doctor and staff at 1mm really made it a pleasant experience throughout. My korean isn’t great so they always had someone there to translate for me and just stay with me to answer questions or just help me feel more relaxed. I didn't have anyone accompany me to any of my appointments so that was really nice. All in all it was a positive experienced I know where I'm going to go if I ever decide to do anything else.

What you need to know about Double Eyelid Creation in South Korea

Blepharoplasty, Before and After

Also known as Blepharoplasty. This form of plastic surgery is used to correct defects of the eyelids or for aesthetically modifying the eye region of the face. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat from around the eyes and the reinforcement of the corresponding muscle and tendon tissues and is centered around the area between the eyebrow and the upper portion of the cheek. Double eyelid surgery creates a crease that makes the eyes appear larger and more alert.  While Caucasians typically are born with a double eyelid crease, approximately 50% of East-Asians do not have a double eyelid crease. Therefore, double eyelid surgery is a highly specialized procedure performed mainly on persons of East-Asian descent. It is the most common type of plastic surgery performed in South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

Double eyelid surgery is a safe and versatile surgery for Asians and other patients with monolids. The surgery makes the eyes appear larger and gives them a more alert appearance. There are different techniques that can be customized to achieve the desired results, tailored for each individual patient. Potential patients should consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine which double eyelid surgery technique is the best option to achieve their desired results.

MyMediTravel currently lists facilities in South Korea offering Double Eyelid Creation procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Double Eyelid Creation can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What does a Double Eyelid Creation Procedure Involve?

Surgery is performed under local anesthesia and sedation will help you avoid pain and discomfort associated with the surgery. The Doctor draws pre-operative lines on your eyelids and incisions are made along your natural creases, as these creases hide your scars after you recover. If the surgery is planned for both the upper and lower eyelids, the upper eyelid is treated first. Excessive fat, skin, and muscle are removed through this incision and then it is stitched. The same procedure is repeated on the lower eyelid. Sometimes, incisions are made inside your eyelids, this is usually an option for dark-skinned people as white scars look prominent on their skin. Inside incisions will have inside stitches - bandages are applied over the wound.

The three most common techniques for creating a double eyelid crease are the Full Incision, Minimal Incision, and the Suture Technique - you will have the option to discuss with your surgeon about which is the most suitable treatment for you.

How Long Should I Stay in South Korea for a Double Eyelid Creation Procedure?

This is a short surgical procedure performed in the outpatient department. It takes 1 to 3 hours in the operation theatre after which you do not need to stay in the hospital. You are discharged after a complete medical checkup which is carried out on the same day. You should stay in South Korea for at least 14 days after you have undergone blepharoplasty surgery. During this period you are kept under observation and you will attend follow up checks. Your health conditions are monitored and stitches are removed after 5 to 7 days. If everything goes fine during this time, you can go home when allowed by your physician.

What's the Recovery Time for Double Eyelid Creation Procedures in South Korea?

Immediately after the surgery, you will suffer from pain and discomfort and you will also experience blurred vision and puffiness of the eyes. Your eyes become sensitive to light and there is swelling and bruising in the initial days which will subside after 1 to 2 weeks. Several months are required before you will see the final results. You will have to take 2 to 3 weeks off work and after this, you can expect to return to office work. You will have to wait for at least 6 weeks if your job requires physical effort.  

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Double Eyelid Creation Procedures in South Korea?

Consider the following:

  • Use ice packs to deal with the swelling and inflammation. Apply ice on your eyes 4 to 5 times a day immediately after the surgery.
  • Do not smoke or drink because tobacco and alcohol decrease your natural healing ability.
  • Avoid strenuous activities such as the gym, running, swimming, etc. for at least 10 days after the surgery.
  • Use prescribed eye drops and ointments regularly.
  • Look for any kind of irritation, redness or swelling. Visit your doctor immediately if you experience any issues.  
  • Do not rub your eyes.
  • Avoid direct contact with sunlight. Do not go out for the first couple of days. Use sunglasses if necessary.
  • Do not use contact lenses for at least 2 weeks.
  • Sleep with your head at an angle of 45° that is slightly higher than your chest.
  • Ensure your diet is rich in vitamins.
  • Use clean gauze to change your bandage on a daily basis.
  • Do not put stress on your eyes.
  • Do not get your bandage wet as It can cause infection.

What's the Success Rate of Double Eyelid Creation Procedures in South Korea?

Double Eyelid Surgery has a high success rate but issues can arise as with any surgery, for example, an infection, blood clot formation, scar hypertrophy, etc. Sometimes, there is re-drooping of your eyelids in cases of failed surgery. Usually, only one surgery is required, but if you are unsatisfied, another surgery is always possible, it will have to wait several months though to give your eyes sufficient time to recover from the primary surgery. According to a study, only 9.5% of the subjects showed some complications after the surgery and revision surgeries are performed in these cases. The rest of the subjects were completely satisfied with the results of the surgery.

Are there Alternatives to Double Eyelid Creation Procedures in South Korea?

The following are some effective non-surgical alternatives to double eyelid surgery:

  • Botox: with this method, botulinum toxin is injected into the eyelids. This causes relaxation of the muscle. It has immediate results which can last for 3 to 4 months. Follow up treatments will be required to maintain the results.
  • Ultherapy: This method makes use of ultrasound rays to stimulate and boost collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin. It gives a fresh and youthful appearance to your skin along with tightening it.
  • Dermal fillers: substances such as Restylane and Juvederm are injected into your eyelids. These fillers work to decrease skin lines and wrinkles. They give a lifted appearance to your eyelids.
  • Skin resurfacing: a number of treatments come under this category. Such as laser resurfacing, micro-needling, laser treatment, etc. They are helpful in lifting your eyelids non-surgically.
