Overview

Double eyelid surgery is one of the most common cosmetic surgery performed in the oriental population. In double eyelid surgery there are many factors to consider in order to create a pair of aesthetically pleasing double eyelid creases. These include the size of the eyes, the symmetry of the left and right eyes, the thickness of the upper eyelid skin, presence of excess fat, skin laxity, droopy upper eyelid and the others features in the face that the eyes have to match in order to present a harmonious. The design of the double eyelid has to be individually tailored according to different patients’ need and
preference.

Sometimes double eyelid surgery is combined with epicanthoplasty and lateral canthoplasty to make the eye appears larger and enhance the overall results. The details of epicanthoplasty and lateral canthoplasty can be obtained from their respective sections in our website.

Surgery

Duration of Surgery: 0.5 hour for stitch method; 1-2 hours for incision method

Anaesthesia: Local anaesthesia

When to Go Home after Surgery: On the same day

Back to Work: 5-7 days
Technique: There are two types of double eyelid surgery:

  • Stitch method: Sutures are inserted into the skin of the upper eyelid to create a double eyelid fold. No skin incision. Suitable for patients with thin upper eyelid skin. There is a low but definite possibility that the sutures become loose and the double eyelid folds gradually disappear. This is more likely if the upper eyelid skin is thick. 
  •  Incision method: An incision is made on the upper eyelid skin. The eyelid is opened and tissue fixation is done to create the double eyelid fold. The results from the incision method are permanent. The scar on the upper eyelid usually heals very well and usually not noticeable at normal talking distance.
