What Does It Involve?

Double eyelid surgery is a specialized procedure usually requested by Asian patients wanting to create a crease in the upper eyelid. About 50 percent of all Asians are born without a fold in the upper eyelid. These types of eyelids tend to have thicker skin and larger fat deposits than eyes with upper eyelid folds. Double eyelid surgery can consist of a single suture, or liposuction and tissue excision. Some patients require double eyelid surgery because their drooping eyelids obstruct their vision. Patients who prove a functional need for double eyelid surgery may have some or all of the procedure paid by insurance.

 

Before double eyelid surgery, the plastic surgeon meets the patient to discuss expectations and to plan the double eyelid surgery. The eyebrow height and position of the eyelid crease will determine the outcome of a double eyelid surgery, and careful measurements and demonstrations ensure that the patient understands the probable result of double eyelid surgery. Patients are examined and questioned about tear production, contact lenses, and other factors in double eyelid surgery. Surgical options for shape and position of the upper eyelid crease should always be discussed in detail, and final decisions should be communicated clearly, well in advance of surgery.

 

Double eyelid surgery is generally considered a cosmetic procedure, although in some cases, patients experience improved vision following double eyelid surgery, due to the removal of obstructions.

After Surgery

Surgery can be done as outpatient surgery, so most patients can return home the day of their procedure.

I am very satisfied as Mr Ho-Asjoe is very patient and takes the time to consider what’s best for the patient, respecting their needs, unlike other doctors I have seen. I have had a great experience and would happily refer friends and family to him.

Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe did my tummy tuck on the 13/4/17. Before surgery he explained the procedure and showed me pictures of surgeries he undertook. He clearly informed that i may have scarring after the operation, however I am please with the result. After the surgery Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe reassured me that if there were any problems I should contact him immediately any time of the day, which i found reassuring and alleviated any anxieties i may have had. The after care received was top notch and will definitely use him again for any future operation(s).
