Anyone here keep up with Korean entertainment? Have you noticed a lot of the female stars have really big bags under their eyes? My girlfriend and I asked our Korean friends about this, and they said a lot of Korean girls don't just get the double eyelid surgery, but also get injections (collagen?) under their eyes. They do it to look cuter. It does draw a lot of attention to the eye, like you have smile eyes all the time.

My girlfriend is thinking of getting this done to minimize the appearance of wrinkles. This makes sense right? If you stretch out skin by plumping up the area underneath, then lines would be flattened?

So, does anyone have experience, or heard anything about this type of procedure?

RMB,

I really wouldn't call those bags. I know because I've got 'em, and they are the bane of my existance. My eyebags reside below the crease that shows on that girl (They may work for Benicio Del Toro Razz , but I'm tellin' ya, mine aren't doing me any favors! Smile )

I do agree, though, that her eyes do look very cute like that. I just think that it would not suit just anyone, and adding lumps and stretching skin in that delicate and crucial area of one's face would be risky!

Hi Bee,

I thought those things were bags. Just filled bags versus empty, sagging bags.

If they're not I apologize. I don't want to misspeak, especially when it comes to something that negatively impacts your life.

My gf has had work done in Korea before and I think the country matches and perhaps surpasses the States in a lot of respects (for example more experimentation with less noticeable surgical entry points). She is seriously contemplating this undereye area procedure on her next trip. Foremost as a way to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, then later as a way to hide age-brought bags, with looking cute only as a possible bonus.

That does look cute on her, but those are not real eye bags. The latter are bigger and extend further below the eye, look more "deflated"/flat, and give the eye more of a droopy appearance. Here's an example of baggy eyes: http://www.smiledogproductions.com/21256030.jpg

I also think that the placement of the fat immediately under the lower lash line won't prevent wrinkles around the eyes later on (and those are the ones that make you look aged, in my opinion).

personally, not sure the bags make her look cute. I think it is more that she is just cute to begin with Embarassed

I heard that Korea is very very good with plastic surgery. I guess they have more experience and experiments since a lot of people do it.

I agree with many of you. They are not undereye bags. Lots of Korean girls have implants in that area to make that area look plumped.
