What is Double Eyelid Surgery?

Double eyelid surgery, also known as upper blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to create eyelid folds.

There are several techniques of double eyelid surgery such as non-incision, partial incision, full-incision methods.

Which method is best suited for me?

It depends on many different factors – age, amount of excess skin and fat, etc.

How long does the operation take?

Upper eyelid surgery usually takes 1 – 2 hours however it could take longer if you undergo other eye surgeries such as lower eyelid, Mongolian folds correction, or lengthening surgery.

What are the other eye surgeries?

Eye lengthening surgery, also called as Lateral Canthoplasty, can be done for those who have short eye length.

Mongolian Folds Correction, also called as Epicanthoplasty, is a surgery to remove epicanthal folds. It gives natural enhancement of the eyes by removing excess skin on inner corners of the eyes.

Lower eyelid surgery, also called as Lower blepharoplasty, is done in order to remove eye bags, excess skin or fat.

How long is the healing process?

It varies on individuals however, most people look presentable within 1 – 2 weeks. Scarring could occur however this will gradually fade over time. Our friendly staff will provide pre and post surgery care to follow.

What if I am not happy or develop complications?

There is a possibility for infection or reactions to anaesthesia however they are infrequent and rare.

Some issues can be solved with re-surgery. It is relatively easier to thicken eyelids than to thin eyelids, therefore re-surgery is mainly focused on improvement rather than achieving perfection.
