What is Rewind Lower blepharoplasty?

Rewind lower blepharoplasty offers you with a bright eye shape and baby-face at one time

Through aging, the skin of eyelids becomes thin and the muscles around the eyes are loosened. Less elastic skin under the eyes starts to become saggy and creates creases.
The layer, covering the fat pad inside the skin under the eyes, starts to lose its supporting capacity and the fat leaks from the layer.
This bulging fat builds dark circles around the eyes regardless of a patient's age. The combination of saggy skin under the eyes and the dark circles cause a person to look older than his/her own age and make the person appear to be worried.

Then we can determine a level of the skin or lower eyelids relaxation by seeing how much adhesion between lower eyelid skin and orbicularis oculi muscle is. We, also, can examine the elasticity of the lower eyelid by checking the speed of going back to the original position when we pull the lower eyelid from the eyeball and release.
