What is Double Eyelid Surgery?
A double eyelid is an eyelid with two movable folds that cover the front of the eyeball externally. While some people are born with double eyelids, others are born with unattractive monolids. Monolids are eyelids with without a crease on the skin above the eyes. Fortunately, for those who wish to have double eyelids, procedures such as the Double Eyelid Surgery can provide them with permanent double-eyelids.
How it Works:
Our affiliated clinic offers incisional, non-incisional and partial-incisional double eyelid surgery.
・Incisional Method: This is a reliable technique that has the additional benefit of removing wrinkles between the new double eyelid line and eyelashes. This technique is also useful in those who wish to specify the size of their desired double eyelid or in those who have slight sunken eye deformity. If you wish to change the direction of the eyelashes to angle them slightly upward, the incision technique should be the method of choice.
・Non-incisional Method: Beads Method
・Partial Incisional Method: Buried Suture Method
Advantages and Limitations of Double Eyelid Surgery:
・Larger-looking and defined eyes with a double eyelid (all types)
・Resuming non-strenuous daily activities is possible immediately after procedure (all types)
・Permanent double eyelids, no future visit required (Incisional Method)
・Extended recovery period (Incisional Method)
・Risks involved such as prolonged swelling and visible scar (Incisional Method)
*Scar visibility depends on skin type. In general, those with dark and dry skin tend to develop slightly visible scars.
Q1: How can my post-blepharoplasty swelling be reduced and healed?
A1: Swelling can be healed quickly by getting enough rest (avoid strenuous activity), eating healthy food, drinking enough water, taking anti-inflammatory drugs (which will also aid in resting), keeping your head at an elevated position (to reduce blood flow to eye area) and applying cold compresses to the surgical area. Still, do ask your doctor for advise before taking steps in reducing your post-blepharoplasty swelling.
Q2: Is there anything else I should know?
A2: Yes. In Asians with asthma or atopic dermatitis, scars tend to become visible as well.
Q3: Which anaesthesia is used?
A3: Either local or general anaesthesia can be used.
