The “youthful” lower eyelid is the full lower eyelid found in a handful of young Asian women. It is called aegyosal in Korean, which literally translates to “affectionate and cute skin.” It is most apparent when one smiles, as the full lower eyelid pushes the eye into a friendly crescent-moon shape. It exhibits a warmth in the overall facial impression, as well as an innocent look of youth. A full lower eyelid instantly rejuvenates a patient who has lost elasticity in the muscles of their lower eyelid. It is also suitable to those who have lost the youthful lower eyelid with age. It is especially appropriate for patients who have bulging eye sockets, as it balances an overly protruding upper eyelid. Together with a successful double eyelid surgery, a youthful lower eyelid can dramatically enhance the demeanor of the patient.
This type of lower eyelid can be produced with a fat graft injection, filler injection, and lower complex blepharoplasty.
- Filler Injection: Fillers can be injected into right underneath the eye until a 3mm fullness width is achieved. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. The downside of this procedure is that filler injection last for 1 year.
- Fat graft injection: Fat can be removed from the thigh or abdomen region. The purified fat is injected underneath the eye to create fuller lower eyelids until a 3mm fullness width is achieved. Fat grafting lasts for a long period of time.
- Lower complex blepharoplasty: This procedure will simultaneously create youthful eyelid through fat transposition, muscle release, and muscle suspension.
