The Double Eyelid Surgery ProcessConsiderations and Aftercare:FAQs

What Is Double Eyelid Surgery?

Double eyelid surgery is a procedure that creates a crease in the upper eyelid. It is often performed on Asian patients to achieve a visible upper eyelid crease.

Popular Surgery

This extremely common surgery technique is one of the most popular surgeries among the Asian population. The surgery can correct asymmetry as well as achieve larger-looking eyes for the patient. Double eyelid surgery adds dimension and depth to the eyelids in the creation of an upper eyelid crease.

Eye-opening effects

The effect works to open up the eye. We use the Korean technique at Derma Revive for this Asian blepharoplasty procedure.  The Korean Technique refers to a specific approach or method used in performing double eyelid surgery that has gained popularity in South Korea.

What is the Korean Technique?

The Korean technique is a form of Asian double eyelid surgery. It involves creating an incision in the upper eyelid, often in the eyelid fold area. This technique may also use partial incisions or non-incision methods with sutures. The goal is to create visible upper eyelid creases, with small incision marks hidden in the new crease. It may include removing excess fat or tissue.

Double Eyelid Surgery Costs

The cost for double eyelid surgery ranges from £3,500 to £4,000. This depends on individual requirements. During a consultation, a detailed price breakdown is provided to determine the exact cost.

Benefits of the Korean Technique in Double Eyelid Surgery

The Korean Technique in double eyelid surgery, a specialised form of Asian blepharoplasty, offers distinct advantages. This method involves creating an incision in the upper eyelid, often in the eyelid fold area, which may include partial incisions or non-incision methods with sutures. The primary benefit of this technique is the creation of visible upper eyelid creases with minimal and strategically hidden incision marks. This approach is particularly effective for those seeking a more defined eyelid crease, adding dimension and depth to the eyelids.

The Korean Technique can address issues such as asymmetry and can contribute to a larger-looking eye appearance. It’s suitable for individuals with different eyelid conditions, whether it involves removing excess fat or tissue. The precision of this method allows for tailored results that respect the patient’s unique facial features and aesthetic goals.

The Procedure of Double Eyelid Surgery

Pre-Surgery Consultation and Preparation

Before undergoing double eyelid surgery, a thorough consultation and preparation phase is crucial. At Derma Revive, our expert team, led by the award-winning Dr. Deniz Kanliada, ensures that each patient receives a personalised assessment. During the consultation, we discuss your aesthetic goals, evaluate your eyelid anatomy, and determine the most suitable surgical approach. Patients are advised on what to expect during and after the surgery, and any necessary pre-operative instructions are provided to ensure optimal outcomes.

Step-by-Step Procedure

The double eyelid surgery at Derma Revive follows a meticulously planned process. The procedure typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes and is performed under local anaesthesia. It begins with precise markings on the eyelid to guide the incision or suture placement. Depending on the chosen technique, either a small incision is made, or sutures are used to create the eyelid crease. If necessary, excess fat or tissue is removed. The incisions are then carefully closed to minimise visible scarring. Throughout the procedure, our focus is on precision and symmetry to achieve natural-looking results.

Post-Surgery Care and Recovery

Post-surgery care is vital for a smooth recovery. Patients may experience temporary symptoms like swelling and bruising, which can be managed with cold compresses and prescribed medication. We provide detailed aftercare instructions, including how to care for the surgical site, medication guidelines, and restrictions on activities like sports and makeup use. Recovery time varies, but most patients can resume normal activities within a few weeks, with full recovery and final results visible in a few months.

It’s important to note that every individual’s anatomy and desired results are unique, and the Korean Technique of double eyelid surgery may not be suitable for everyone. It is crucial to consult with a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon who can assess your specific needs and goals and guide you through the best approach for your double eyelid surgery. They will provide personalised recommendations based on your individual circumstances to ensure optimal outcomes and patient satisfaction.

Eyelid Surgery Considerations and Aftercare:

As is the case with standard blepharoplasty, clients may experience symptoms such as pain, inflammation, swelling, and bruising temporarily.

Here are some tips for relieving eye irritation. As recommended by your doctor, use cold compresses regularly for the first 3 days. Apply a lubricating ointment or other prescription medication. Wear sunglasses outdoors until fully healed. Avoid sports, swimming, and sauna visits for 2 weeks. Avoid scratching your eyes for 5- days.

Follow your surgeon’s discharge instructions for the procedure. This will decrease your recovery time and minimise potential complications. Antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infections. If prescribed, take the full course, even if you feel completely cured. Be sure to report any signs of infection or post-operative side effects immediately. Bruising and scarring may persist for several weeks post-treatment.


Double Eye Lid FAQs

How do I know which surgical options are right for me?

If you are young, have thinner skin without excess on the upper lid, and prefer no cutting, non-incisional blepharoplasty may be ideal. It’s less suitable for those with larger fat deposits. Older patients with thicker, excess, puffy eyelid skin might find incisional blepharoplasty more appropriate. Your doctor will assess your upper eyelids to recommend the best technique for you.

Does Asian double eyelid surgery result in scarring?

Scarring is possible in all invasive surgeries. In Asian blepharoplasty, incisions are typically hidden in the eyelid crease, making scarring unnoticeable for most patients.

Is Asian blepharoplasty painful?

Asian blepharoplasty is generally not painful. It can be performed under local anaesthesia, with sedation if needed. Oral pain medication is usually sufficient post-surgery. Minimal pain is expected for the first two days, manageable with painkillers like paracetamol and ice application.

Do I need to wear bandages after the blepharoplasty?

Post-surgery, only sterile strips are used on the eyelids; no additional dressing is required.

How soon can I wear glasses or contact lenses after the surgery?

Glasses can be worn immediately after surgery. However, contact lenses should not be worn for three weeks post-surgery.

How soon can I shower, wash my face or wear eye makeup?

Avoid showering for the first 24 hours after the procedure. Keep shampoos, soaps, and products away from the eye area for the first week. Avoid eye makeup for two weeks.

Can I repeat the non-incisional blepharoplasty if I want enhanced results?

Non-incisional blepharoplasty can be repeated. Sutures can be removed and redone for improved results if desired.
