Everything about Dark Circle and its Correction !

Everything about Dark Circle and its Correction ! 

Hi, this is Dr. Kim. A lot of female patients in these days tell me that they suffer from dark circles which are often hard to cover with the most clever make-up technique. Today, let's find out about dark circles and some of the correction methods. 

Dark circles are due to weakened shield 
covering fat underneath eyelid 
that causes bulging and shadowy appearance. 
It may appear as bluish circle below your eyes along the side of nose. 

Dark circles can make you look aged or fatigue 
that you might want to consider dark circle correction.

Let's find out what kind of correction methods are available at BK ! :)

Dark circles can be divided into 4 types, 
and it is important to choose a proper method for its correction. 

▶Loosened Eyelid with Fat - Correction via Fat removal on Lower Eyelid

Individuals in their 20s and 30s have better results 
due to higher elasticity in their skin. 
There is no visible scar after surgery
since the incision is made along the inner surface of eyelids. 

▶ Bulging Fat yet Sunken Lower Eyelids - Correction via Fat Relocation

Instead of removing unnecessary fat, 
it is relocated in order to even the the skin surface on lower eyelids. 
If there is not enough fat to fill up the sunken part, 
autologous fat grafting may be necessary. 

The surgery takes about 30 minutes - 1 hour under local anesthesia with IV sedation.
It is fairly convenient since you can go back to your daily activities right after surgery. 

▶Sunken Lower Eyelids - Correction via Filler / Autologous Fat Graft 

Filler is a substance injected to either skin or underneath subcutaneous tissue 
to create volume. Injection with natural substance 
such as hyaluronic acid can correct dark circles enhancing youthful appearance. 
It is more effective when depression is not too severe. 
Reinjection after certain period of time is necessary 
in order to maintain the result since it usually lasts up to 1 year. 

Grafting excess fat from own thighs, hips, and abdomen is another method to correct dark circles, and also known for body contouring effect 
since the procedure grafts unnecessary fat from your own body. 
BK has developed to increase survival rate of grafted fat cells 
to enhance lasting period and results of the procedure. 
Since fat grafting is considered as a challenging procedure 
that it might cause lumps or over-absorption of fat due to misinjection, 
the procedure must be performed by a specialist.
