Double Eyelid by SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors
About 50% of the Asian population have eyes that are characterized by a distinguishing epicanthal fold. It creates a definitive Asian facial aesthetics that is commonly seen in the inner corner of the upper eyelid. The epicanthal fold is then adjusted to create a more definitive supratarsal crease. It is for this very reason that it is called Asian eyelid surgery.
The procedure will add that distinguishing supratarsal crease on the patient’s upper eyelid. After the procedure, the patient will have the eye shape and contour that they have been dreaming of. This procedure also helps alleviate ageing and tired-looking eyes.
Anatomically, the eyelid lift is composed of several tissues, muscles, veins, orbital fats, and connecting fibres. However, some people have a developmental lack of connecting fibres that anchors the upper eyelid skin to the underlying muscle bands.
In some cases, fine elemental tissue connections lead to various small or unstable folds. Thus, making the medial epicanthal fold more prominent than the supratarsal crease. This eyelid phenomenon is common to most East Asian populace.
Asian double eyelid surgery provides a lot of benefits including the following:
Notice how eyes without the supratarsal fold look?

Most pairs of eyes lack symmetry that also affects facial balance. Double eyelid procedures can help improve facial harmony while promoting better eye symmetry. Thus, exuding that perfect look that most men and women desire.
It may be because of genetics, advanced ageing or lifestyle habits that most eyes become puffy amplified by excess skin or fat. These conditions can be reduced with Asian double eyelid surgery.
For many women, getting your makeup on every morning is truly time-consuming. However, Asian blepharoplasty can help minimize that. It makes makeup application for the eyes easier and more convenient.
One of the many benefits of this cosmetic procedure is it can be combined with transconjunctival lower eyelid fat bag removal. In which case, you can achieve full eye rejuvenation with time and cost-efficacy.
Asian eyelid surgery offers several ways to achieve the double eyelid that most patients desire. However, this may depend on the condition of facial structures that surround the eye, the patient’s skin laxity and the outcome that patients expect.
Here are two of the most prevalent techniques that are available for Asian blepharoplasty:
This technique requires making an incision along the line where you desire to have your supratarsal fold. It involves the removal of excess muscles and orbital fat that makes the eyes puffy, flat, and lifeless.
The incision technique offers the removal of hooded eyelids. It also eliminates unwarranted connective tissue to prevent an added skin fold. Thus, maintaining a vibrant, natural, balanced and youthful facial appearance.
This is a less invasive technique than incisional or open double eyelid surgery. The suture technique uses a pin-prick incision technique where a series of tiny holes are made along the upper eyelid.
Sutures or soluble medical threads are then inserted into the holes and anchored to the underlying tissues of the eyelids. This will then create the eyelid crease that you desire. However, the suture technique offers less permanent effects as they are more inclined to fade as time passes.
Both may involve an incisional method that aims to reduce puffiness of the upper eyelid or the bagginess of the lower eyelids. The difference lies in where the incision is made. For upper eyelid plastic surgery, the incision is made on the eyelid crease while for lower eyelid surgery, the incision is made along the lash line.
The best way to know if double eyelid surgery is suitable for your needs is to book a consultation with SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors.
During your consultation, the structure of your upper eyelid is evaluated. This also includes assessing the laxity of your eyelid skin and upper eyelid crease. Afterwhich, your plastic surgeon will determine the most ideal procedure that will work well with you.
Whether incisional or suture double eyelid plastic surgery is recommended for you, plastic surgeons aim to provide the most natural eyelid fold to help you achieve your beautification goals. To ensure that you get the most ideal method, visit your trusted surgeon or clinic in Melbourne, Australia.
Indeed, getting a recommendation or advice from your opthalmologist can help surgeons determine and create the perfect treatment plan in enhancing your upper eyelid crease.
Depending on the type of Asian blepharoplasty, the cosmetic surgery typically takes 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete. However, it varies for every patient. The cosmetic needs of patients are taken into consideration. It also depends on the expected outcome of the patient as well as his or her skin laxity.
Generally, local anaesthetic is enough for double eyelid surgery. Asian Blepharoplasty may require incisions or sutures but it does need to be performed under general anaesthesia. Local sedatives are enough to provide ease and comfort to patients.
After this surgical procedure, patients may experience mild to moderate swelling and bruising on the treatment site. However, these downtimes typically subdue on their own within the next 24 hours following the procedure.
Blepharoplasty is a safe and effective treatment that helps in rejuvenating facial structures. It offers a facial balance and youthful look to the patients. And it is typically performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who is highly knowledgeable in facial anatomy, especially the structures surrounding the eyes.
Blepharoplasty is also performed as a day procedure in a clinic certified to perform recognized cosmetic treatments. Thus, this surgical procedure rarely offers risks and complications. Although patients experience some swelling and bruising post-surgery, these downtimes resolve on their own gradually in the next few hours.
In case the bruising and swelling persist beyond 48 hours, it is best to visit your trusted clinic in Melbourne for immediate attention. This way any risks of complication can be prevented.
Typically, it takes about two weeks for a patient to recover from this surgical procedure. However, recovery for some patients may take longer than 2 weeks. This depends on the coping mechanism of the patient and the type of blepharoplasty employed.
In most cases, a patient who opts for suture surgery may recover in less than 2 weeks. A patient who chooses an incisional method, on the other hand, may recover longer than 2 weeks. However, be it noted at an incisional procedure offer more permanent results than employing a suture method.
During your consultation, your surgeon will provide a list of post-surgery DOs and DON’Ts. Most surgeons aim to extend their help even after they have performed the procedure. Thus, it is highly advised that you attentively and diligently follow these aftercare guidelines.
Remember to visit the clinic two weeks after the treatment to allow your surgeon to reevaluate the natural appearance of your upper lids. He or she will also check if the incision or suture is healing well.
