[BK Plastic Surgery] Double eyelid surgery

BK Plastic Surgery Hospital
Double Eyelid Surgery

Many people think eyelid surgery is 
the most common and simple surgery among various plastic surgeries, 
but you must make a decision seriously before surgery 
since eyes play a critical role for making your impression.

Today we are talking about double eyelid surgery.

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 eyelid 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 eyelid covers 1-2 mm 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.

Droopy or Slanted Eyes

For moderately droopy or slanted eyes, raising or lowering the outer crease line 
during double eyelids surgery can easily correct the shape of eyes. 

But for severe cases, procedures such as Lateral hotz 
by cutting the lateral end of eyes to correctly place the shape of eyes 
should be considered.

Asymmetrical Eyes

Most people have some degree of asymmetrical eyes.

But for severe condition, 
it should be corrected with double eyelid surgery.

  1. Double eyelid surgery is now becoming very popular among Korean people who have oriental eyes. Eyelid surgery involves cutting the outer end of the eyes to make them wider and rounder, something plastic surgeons say boosts confidence. More than that the procedure improves the look of loose skin and bags under your eyes.
