Banobagi independently developed outstanding method, Original No-Scar Epicanthoplasty (epicanthoplasty with no incision under eyes) will leave the least sign of inequality shaped scar for epicanthoplasty. Since it does not require an incision to the lower eyelid and surturing is done in a small area, it will not look weird even right after the operation. This technique can be performed by only the limited number of surgeons.
Eye consists of the black pupil, sclera and caruncle. 50 to 80% of the caruncle is shown in an ideal eye shape. Non-incisonal epicanthoplasty can change a stuffy eye into a soft fresh-looking eye.
The most important factor is the position of scars leaved after the operation. At Banobagi, there is no need of incion on the lower eyes and stiches are hidden inside the inner conner of the eye, so it is possible to leave almost no visible scars.
Most of epicanthoplasty techniques have been developed for the westerners. Therefore, Banobagi hospital focuses on creating a fresh looking eye that suit Asian eyes the most.
