DAEGU, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JCI(Joint Commission International)-accredited EFIL Plastic Surgery is drawing attention across the globe with its exophthalmos surgery.
As medical institutions that treat exophthalmos are getting globally very unique, patients across the world are visiting EFIL Exophthalmos Center to protect eyeballs and treat bulging eyes.
In EFIL Center, patients can receive treatment for proptosis caused by aesthetic issues or hormonal issues like hyperthyroidism. If the eyes are protruded since birth or during childhood, surgery for aesthetic purpose is available to adults over 18 years old. However, surgery for proptosis caused by hyperthyroidism is only available after hyperthyroidism is fully recovered or treated for more than one year.
“Eye socket expansion surgery” involves conjunctival incisions inside the corner of the eye for invisible scars. This procedure exposes and expands the orbital bone and pushes them to create a bigger space to allow bulging eyes to sit further back in the head. This procedure will take about an hour and allows one day discharge generally. Many overseas patients who can stay for one or two weeks may receive this treatment considering the recovery period. Patient satisfaction is high as the procedure actually sets the eyeballs back, which is not an optical illusion as real effect of eyeball setback.

JCI is designated by World Health Organization (WHO), which is only given to healthcare institutions if they meet or exceed strict international standards.
