WHAT IS DOUBLE EYELID SURGERY?

Double eyelid surgery creates a natural crease in the eyelid which appears when the eyes are open. The eyelid is very thin, but it is one of the most complex structures in the body that is composed of multiple layers such as the skin, muscle, fat, conjunctiva, and tarsus. Among them, the levator muscle is the main component that is attached to the tarsus of the upper eyelid. This muscle elevates the upper eyelids and causes the lid crease when attached to the interior skin. A person who does not have the crease may look more tired and sleepy due to thick and drooping eyelids. In this case, double eyelid surgery can improvethe overall appearance and image of the person using a suitable surgical method. This surgery can correct asymmetry, ptosis, and the size of the crease and upper eyelid, bringing more definition to the eyes.

DOUBLE EYELID SURGERY METHODS

Non-incisional Method

What is it?

The non-incisional method creates a natural crease without any incision. It makes 3-4 small slits the size of 1-2 mm on the upper eyelid, and then connects the levator muscle or tarsus to the skin to create the crease using non-absorbable thread.

Who can benefit?
  1. 1. People who have thin eyelids with very little droopiness or fat
  2. 2. People who are looking for a fast recovery
  3. 3. People who are looking for natural-looking results
  1. single eyelid before non-incisional surgery 1. Before procedure
  2. small slits 2. Small slits made
  3. 3-4 knots along the slits 3. 3-4 knots tied through incisions
  4. single thread is used 4. Usage of single thread
  5. no suture required 5. No sutures necessary
  6. after non -ncisional double eyelid surgery 6. After procedure

Partial-incisional Method

What is it?

The partial-incisional method uses a combination of incisional and non-incisional methods. A small incision is used to remove excess fat while the crease is formed by a single thread passing through 2-3 slits of 3-4 mm in length, connecting the levator muscle to the skin.

Partial-incisional Method can Benefit
  1. 1. People who have thin eyelids with excessive fat
  2. 2. People who are looking for minimal scarring
  3. 3. People with moderate droopiness or puffiness
  1. single eyelid before partial incisional surgery 1. Before
  2. incision is made to create crease 2. Incision(s)
  3. excessive fat is removed along the incision 3. Fat removal
  4. connect and levator muscle and skin 4. Connect the levator
    muscle & skin
  5. suture for eyelid 5. Suture

Incisional Method

What is it?

The incisional method is a versatile surgical method that can remove fat and control various tissues to achieve a long-lasting double fold crease. This method uses a full incision on the eyelid and manipulates various tissues of the eyelids, i.e. skin, fat, and muscle to create a natural, but defined crease. Almost anyone is suitable for this type of method.

Incisional Method can Benefit
  1. 1. People who have thick eyelids with excess fat or puffiness
  2. 2. People with asymmetric eyelids
  3. 3. People looking for a revision
  1. before incisional double eyelid surgery 1. Before
  2. incision is made to create crease 2. Incision
  3. excessive fat is removed along the incision 3. Fat removal
  4. connect and levator muscle and skin 4. Connect levator
    muscle & skin
  5. no suture required 5. Suture
  6. after incisional double eyelid surgery 6. After
