What type of surgical method works for my eyes ?

What type of surgical method works for my eyes ?

Eyes play a critical role when the first impression is determined.
That's why a lot of people want to have big and beautiful eyes.
Especially for Asians, since they tend to have small eyes without double eyelids, many Asian people undergo double eyelid surgery.

Shapes of eyes are different from every individual that 
you must consider the overall harmony 
with the other facial features for double eyelid surgery. 
It really does require delicate and artistic skills 
in order to create beautiful eyes customized for all individuals. 

Eyelid surgery mostly indicates double eyelid surgery,
and there are two major surgical methods - incision and non-incision.
Incisional method makes incision on eyelids and remove fat, muscle, and subcutaneous tissue when non-incisional creates double eyelids by connecting skin and levator muscle using a single knot along the crease from inner to outer skin. 

Ptosis correction is for those with weakened levator muscle to fix the appearance of eyes. 
Procedures such as epicanthoplasty and lateral canthoplasty 
enhance the size and shape of eyes to create bigger and more defined eyes. 

Then which type of surgical methods is suitable for me ?
Let's find out now ! 

Thin Eyelids 

In case of thin eyelids, procedure can be performed by pinching the muscles with thread instead of making an incision on eyelid skin.
Non-incisional method is suitable for such type of eyes.

Thick Eyelids

If upper eyelids consist excess fat, thick skin, or over-developed muscle,
eyes may look puffy or swollen.
Full-incisional or partial-incisional double eyelid surgery
is suitable for patients with such condition.

Small Eyes

The vertical width of eyes can be extended by double eyelid surgery only.
However, inner corner fold removal or outer corner extension
should be performed with double eyelid surgery
to extend the horizontal width of eyes. 

Wide Distance between Eyes

Mongolian fold covering inner corner of eyes 
may cause small appearance and wide distance between eyes. 
In this case, inner corner fold removal with double eyelid surgery 
can be performed to improve the condition. 

Sleepy Eyes

Sleepy eyes are due to ptosis in most cases.
Ptosis is abnormal low-lying upper eyelid margin with eyes in primary gaze.
Normally, upper lid covers 1-2mm of the superior part of pupil.
Ptosis can be corrected by shortening levator muscle
with incision along the inner surface of eyelid or eyelid crease.

Wrinkled Lower Eyelids 

Bulging lower eyelids with fat and loose or wrinkly skin need fat repositioning surgery.
Incision is made under lower eyelid, and remaining fat is repositioned in a broader area with excess fat removal. Wrinkle removal with slight skin incision can be performed as well if there are saggy wrinkles beneath lower eyelids. 

Asymmetrical Eyes

Most people have some degree of asymmetrical eyes. 
But for severe condition, it should be corrected with double eyelid surgery. 

There are so many different eyelid surgery methods,
but it is very important to find out the best suitable method for my eyes through careful consultations with an eyelid specialist.
