Korean love bands. What would make it so different to alloderm or fascia?

i dont understand why ocular PS here in the US, state korean love band surgery is disastrous , but some retraction surgery often alloderm is used w/out problems & the tarsys graph is used & placed in pocket that is created by surgical dissection of the tarsal plate that the love band would be placed in, using alloderm or fascia. so what would make it so different ? A dr in the US said doing love band this way (under tarsal plate) wouldnt have problems vs the love bands placed under the skin. TY

In my experience love band surgery using Alloderm (fascia is less effective) is not associated with any significant problems. Placing the graft under the skin is more effective than placing it deeper.
