Double eyelid surgery, or as it’s also known, Asian eyelid surgery, involves creating a refreshed look for patients of Asian descent.

The purpose of Asian Blepharoplasty is to create a natural upper eyelid fold and a unique eyelid shape that is authentic to the patient’s heritage. 

What’s different about double eyelid surgery?

The most effective approach to addressing eyelid disorders is surgical blepharoplasty. It produces excellent and long-lasting outcomes in treating moderate to severe cases of swollen upper eyelids and eyelash ptosis.

What causes double eyelids?

Many people of Asian origin are born with no upper eyelid crease (also known as a “single” or “mono” eyelid), which can cause the lashes to sag into the visual axis (a condition known as “lash ptosis”). Sometimes the eyelid is droopy or has ptosis, which can give the patient a “sleepy” appearance, and some patients have a “mongoloid fold” or an epicanthic fold at the nasal corner.

How does this surgery work?

There are two ways to carry out this treatment. The first method involves an incision, allowing the scar to be concealed in the crease of the eye. This alternative method necessitates two weeks of recovery, with the scar completely healed in three months. The second approach creates the crease with a running stitch which requires no incisions, and leaves no scar. The recuperation time is shorter (one to two weeks), but the operation only lasts one to four years.

Double eyelid surgery is normally performed under local anaesthesia as a day-case procedure. This implies you’ll be able to leave on the same day.

Why should I book this treatment?

Double Eyelid Surgery helps to create a fresher, more “awake” appearance for the patient. Excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed if they contribute to a puffy appearance.

I have completed the International Fellowship in Advanced Aesthetic Science (IFAAS) on Asian blepharoplasty and I am trained in Asian eyelid techniques including:

– Asian blepharoplasty

– Double eyelid surgery – non-incisional (suture only) and incisional techniques

– Medial epicanthoplasty – for epicanthic folds

During my IFAAS training, I travelled to Asia to learn from internationally-renowned experts in Asian eyelid surgery from Korea & Malaysia.

Should I read reviews of the surgeons first?

Absolutely! It is strongly recommended you read through some patient experiences before you book a consultation. No one can quite describe the patient’s journey quite as well as the patient’s.
