Double Eyelid Surgery

Double eyelid surgery, also known as Asian blepharoplasty or double eyelid blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that creates a crease in the upper eyelid, resulting in the appearance of double eyelids. This procedure is popular in East Asian countries, where a significant percentage of the population naturally has a single eyelid without a distinct crease. The surgery aims to enhance the definition of the eyes and is often chosen for aesthetic reasons.

  1. Creation of Eyelid Crease:

  • The primary goal is to create a double eyelid by forming a crease in the upper eyelid. This is achieved by removing a small amount of skin and, in some cases, adjusting the underlying structures.

  1. Incisions:

  • Incisions are typically made along the desired crease line. The specific technique and incision location can vary based on individual anatomy and the surgeon's approach.

  1. Suture or Incision Method:

  • There are different methods for performing double eyelid surgery, including the suture method (non-incisional) and the incisional method.

  • Suture Method: Involves the placement of sutures to create the eyelid crease without making external incisions.

  • Incisional Method: Involves making small incisions to remove excess skin and create the eyelid crease.

  1. Recovery:

  • Recovery time can vary, but patients may experience swelling and bruising. Following post-operative care instructions is important to ensure proper healing.

  1. Natural-Looking Results:

  • Skilled surgeons aim to achieve natural-looking results that complement the individual's facial features and maintain ethnic characteristics.
