Double Eyelid Surgery
A number of patients of Asian descent opt for double eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty to give it its surgical name, in order to create a more open appearance of the eyes. The procedure also enhances the definition in the upper eyelids.
Double eyelid surgery is similar to a regular upper eyelid lift, although it has been slightly modified to remove a small amount of skin, tissue and fat pads so that an upper eyelid crease that did not formerly exist is created.
This form of surgery calls for a highly skilled surgeon because it involves ‘designing’ and placing a new crease in the upper eyelid. The wound must also be successfully sealed and the incision concealed within this new crease. Finding overall balance with the rest of the face is crucial too if the operation is to be a success and the results harmonious.
