Double Eyelid Surgery (Asian Blepharoplasty) At Bangkok Plastic Surgery Clinic
Double eyelid surgery, also known as “Asian Blepharoplasty”, is most well-known method that creates a defined crease above the Asian eye. The creation of a lid fold enlarges the eyes dramatically and enhances the beauty of the eyes. Asian Blepharoplasty can consist of a single suture, or liposuction and tissue excision. Some patients require double eyelid operation because their drooping eyelids actually obstruct their vision. While the goal of the operation is to create a crease in the upper eyelids and open the eyes, another part of this goal is to retain the patient’s aesthetic, and individual ethnic characteristics. As every patient is unique, the surgeon will select the most appropriate method for you during your consultation.
BEFORE THE SURGERY
Process to create the “double eyelid” is complex and requires thoughtful individualization to each patient. Before undergoing the Asian Blepharoplasty, the surgeon will meet with the patient to discuss expectations and to plan the double eyelid operation. With the careful measurements of eyebrow height and position of the eyelid crease with demonstrations, this will ensure that the patient understands the probable result of this procedure. The choice of method recommended by the surgeon will be dependent on the patient’s anatomy and aesthetic desires.
A SIMPLE AND SAFE PROCEDURE
The procedure involves excising a crescent-shaped piece of skin out of the eyelid. Following this some of the underlying fat is removed, and stitches are used to rejoin the sides back together. Any scars left by the procedure will be hidden by the created crease. A typical procedure should take between one hour to three hours and will be performed under local or general anesthesia.
A FAST RECOVERY
For the first few days after the Double eyelid surgery (Asian Blepharoplasty), the new crease will most likely look a bit higher than where one would imagine it should be. You may also feel some tightness, swelling, numbness, or changes in vision, but these will heal themselves during recovery.
