WHAT IS DOUBLE EYELID SURGERY?

Double eyelid surgery creates a natural crease in the eyelid that appears when the eyes are opened. The eyelid is very thin, but is one of the most complex structures in the body that is composed of multiple layers of 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 is attached to the interior skin. A person who does not have the crease may look more tired and sleepy from a thick and drooping eyelid. In this case, the double eyelid surgery can improve an overall appearance and image of the person using a suitable surgical method. This surgery can correct the asymmetry, ptosis, and size of the crease and upper eyelid, bringing a better defined look.

DOUBLE EYELID SURGERY METHODS

Non-incisional Method

What is it?

This method creates a natural crease without any incision. It makes 3-4 small slits 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. Thin eyelid with very little droopiness or fat
  2. 2. Short recovery
  3. 3. Looking for natural result
  1. single eyelid before non-incisional surgery 1. Before
  2. small slits 2. Small slits
  3. 3-4 knots along the slits 3. 3-4 knots
  4. single thread is used 4. Single thread
  5. no suture required 5. No sutures
  6. after non -ncisional double eyelid surgery 6. After

Partial-incisional Method

What is it?

This 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 connecting the levator muscle to the skin.

Who can benefit?
  1. 1. Thin eyelid with excessive fat
  2. 2. Looking for minimal scarring
  3. 3. Moderate droopiness or puffiness

Incisional Method

What is it?

It 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 eyelids, i.e. skin, fat, and muscle to create a natural, but defined crease. Almost anyone is suitable for this type of method.

Who can benefit?
  1. 1. Thick eyelids with excess fat or puffiness
  2. 2. Asymmetric eyelids
  3. 3. Revision case
  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
