Eyelid specialist Dr Kwon Bong-Sik is a plastic surgeon known for his expertise in the eyelid.
His experience and expertise is famous in Korean and also abroad.
He published his paper at SCI plastic surgery journals.
Dr. Kwon’s research is considered to be revolutionary because by understanding the relationship between the epicanthal fold and the Asian double eyelid, it suggested a new approach for Asian blepharoplasty.
Before Dr. Kwon published his research, for nearly 200 years, it was widely accepted that the Mongolian fold (epicanthus, eptcanthal fold) was a congenital abnormality occurring in Asians, In his SCI thesis “Reconsideration of the Epicanthus: Evolution of the Eyelid and Devolutional Concept of Asian Blepharoplasty”.
Dr. Kwon suggested that the epicanthal fold was not a congenital abnormally, but a result of a natural bio-evolution of the eyelid as a base.
Dr. Kwon invented and patented a new surgical procedure called Magic Epicanthoplasty (devolutional epicanthoplasty) and Structural Asian Double Eyelid Surgery based on the concept of devolution.
Conventional epicanthoplasty surgeries primarily focused on cutting off the Mongolian fold in order to remove it.
However, Magic Epicanthoplasty (Kwon’s method) rearranges muscular tissues in the upper eyelid to naturally recover the medial canthal structure, making the end result of the surgery more natural.
Dr. Kwon is continuing his research on evolutionary eyelid biology of Asians and surgical application to introduce more innovative and universal methods for Asian blepharoplasty.
