Double eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Studies show that approximately half of Asians are monolids or do not do not have a well-defined eyelid crease. While there is nothing wrong with this unique eye shape, some feel that a deeper crease will enhance their own personal features and make their eyes look bigger. A Double Eyelid Surgery Singapore doctor can help.
Types of eyelid surgery
Your doctor will create a crease by removing excess skin, smoothing the eye muscles, and tightening or resecting any support structures and fat in the eye area. Special care is taken so that the crease looks as natural as possible.
There are 3 different kinds of eyelid surgery techniques: full incisional method, buried sutured method, and partial incision method . The full incisional method can give you the most natural look, but it can take longer to heal. The buried suture method – where small sutures are dotted across the eyes to create a crease — is best for those who have thinner eyelid skin. The partial incision method combines both techniques. Your doctor will know which one will work best for your particular case.
What is the process and healing time?
Most surgeries will be conducted at the cosmetic surgery Singapore clinic. You’ll be given local anesthesia, and the procedure takes about 1 hour. About 5 – 7 days later your stitches will be removed.
Your eyelids will look swollen and bruised for about two weeks to a month, depending on the type of surgery performed and how thick your skin is. After a month, you’ll be able to hide most of the redness with makeup. However, it will take about 3 months for your face to look completely natural.
