Inner Corner Reconstruction

When Mongolian folds are removed either excessively or insufficiently during inner corner fold removal, or the outcomes are not satisfactory, Inner Corner Reconstruction should be considered.

Proper time for Inner Corner Reconstruction

It is recommended that you wait for at least 6-12 months for an inner corner reconstruction surgery so that surgical sites or related tissue are completely healed.

Inner Corner Reconstruction FAQ

Q: Will there be any scar after Inner Corner Reconstruction surgery? Can even very serious scarring cases be corrected?

A: Usually, inner corner reconstruction leaves short vertical incisional (ㅡ shape) scar; however, you should not worry because it gradually loses its color and texture to be very natural and invisible around 6months after. This procedure can correct too much skin removal and evident scar on the inner corner. Even for the severe cases can be corrected by adjusting the degree of closing.

Q: I have undergone Inner Corner Reconstruction at another hospital, and do not like the result. Can I have revisional inner corner reconstruction surgery again?

A: Yes. Revisional Reconstruction might be more complicated however, it is possible to have revisional inner corner reconstruction surgery depending on your condition.
