Double Eyelid Surgery
Double eyelid surgery is a very popular and there are several approaches to surgery.
Upon initial consultation the suitable method will be discussed. These methods are:
1) Full Incision Method
2) Buried Sutured (non-incision) Method
3) Partial Incision Method: Ideal for patients who have droopy eyes with thin monolids or thin eyelid skin and for those who desire a shorter recovery period than the full incision method
Hospitalisation: None, you stay in the clinic for a few hours only.
Recovery: Most of the bruising and swelling disappear within 2-4 weeks after surgery. after 3 months it will look natural as new skin tissue is formed. The speed of recovery will depend on the thickness of the skin and the method of surgery.
Stitch removal: 5-7 days after surgery, depending on what method you choose.
Anesthesia: Local anesthesia and sedation.
Length of surgery: 1-2 hours
