Eye Pouch Removal Surgery

As time goes by, eye pouch and wrinkles on lower eyelid are one of the earliest signs of being old and main factors to affect facial beauty. People with them look old. So eye pouch removal surgery is one of common plastic surgeries.

Types of Eye Pouch

The eye pouch of only flabby and thick orbicular muscle of eye is genetic and appears when young. It is featured by closeness to lower eye-lid edge, arch-shaped and not flabby skin, which happens on 20-32 years old people.

Eye pouch caused only by flabby and lose skin is featured by flabby lower eye-lid and outer canthus skin and small wrinkle around eye orbits without flabby orbital septum and process of orbital septum fat. It generally happens on middle age of 33-45 years old.

Light and moderate bulge of lower eye-lid are caused by geneogenous overgrowth of orbital septum fat, which generally happen on 23-36 years old people.

Moderate and severe bulge of lower eye-lid are caused by flabby skin, orbicular muscle of eye and orbital septum fat which droops for gravity. In severe case, outer canthus ligament is loose and tarsus is everted, eyelid and ball are separated and cry happens often. It is seen among 45-68 years old people.The case with loose skin and depression between lower eye-lid edge and eyepit is often seen among old and middle-aged people. Besides the flabby skin, atrophy of orbital septum fat and tarsi fat happens, too.

New approaches to Remove Eye Pouch

Many hospitals still take a traditional way to just cut orbital septum fat and skin now, which leaves unnecessary cutting scar of eyelid edge. And some people get ectropion and depression of lower eye-lid. In fact, most patients don’t have obviously increased orbital septum fat, while people who really have it are often young people. Because they have good skin and strong orbicular muscle of eye, what should be cut is only fat, not muscle and skin. Therefore, different therapies are for different cases:

For those with only fat orbicular muscle of eye, surgeons can just cut orbicular muscle of eye thin. Fat isn’t supposed to remove.

For those cases caused only by loose skin, redundant skin should be removed and no more system such as orbicular muscle of eye and orbital septum fat should be destroyed. This can avoid depression and other complications like losing sight because of bleeding of eye balls after removing orbital septum.

For those with moderate and severe bulge of lower eye-lid, conjunctiva path is a good choice. It’s to remove redundant orbital septum skin from inside. Because of well elastic skin, skin will not be loose. This way also avoids cutting scar and makes small wound and light bulge or even no bulge after surgery. It’s a safer approach.

For those with flabby skin and severe bulge of lower eye-lid, redundant skin and droopy orbital septum fat should be removed from the cut mouth of eye-lid edge, and meanwhile orbital septum and orbicular muscle of eye should be tightened. For those with ectropion of lower eye-lid, the outer canthus should be fixed to rectify the ectropion. All is necessary for final good effects.

Experts on plastic surgery think that as easy as it is, eye pouch removal surgery may leave some pities to ones pursuing beauty or even cause such serious complications as lower eye-lid ectropion. The key to a successful surgery is to master the amount of removing loose lower eye-lid skin and orbital septum fat. Clinically, many aspects like types of eye pouch, distribution of orbital septum fat, elasticity of sebum should be consider comprehensively when deciding the surgery approach. And then, fat process should be examined and diagnosed carefully and soft and cautious operation is also needed to reach perfect effects.
