Double Eyelid is the most common feature that are extremely popular among asians, because many of them do not have double eyelid creases. Why fret, when there are accredited plastic surgeons available in Singapore who can create natural looking double eyelids with the procedure called Blepharoplasty, which by the way, has gotten even more popularity among asians because anyone can now have a bigger, brighter and more youthful eyes.

Double Eyelid Creation

Non-Incision Double Eyelid surgery is effectively carried out using the stitching method and is suitable for most people. With a technique that initially evolved from “DST” (double suture and twisted technique), I have modified this technique for a longer lasting and crease with more secure anchor points (triple suture method, TST).

This procedure is one of my signature surgery commonly perform in a week. To date, I have performed more than 1000 cases.

Differences between Incision and Non-Incision Double Eyelid Creation

Incision Double Eyelid Creation

(Open Blepharoplasty)

Non-incision Double Eyelid Creation

(Triple Suture and Twist Technique-TST)

Cutting of the eyelid skin, exposing and removing portion of the underlying structures such as the muscle and fats. No cutting of eyelids is required. Modified techniques with more secured suture points for long-lasting results.
Repositioning of some of the lid elevating muscles is usually required. No invasive surgery is required.
Risk of complications is higher compared to DST. Scar will fade to a thin line. When closing of eyes, you may see a crease line for some people. Less complications compared to Open Blepharoplasty. Scarless on the exterior skin. No dots or suture points can be seen as it fades over time. Better for fine adjustment of crease height and asymmetry.
Downtime in open blepharoplasty is significantly longer than its counterpart suturing methods due to the innate nature of being an invasive surgery with cutting and removal of eyelid structures Lower downtime.

About 2-3 days of swelling and slight bruising.

Suture points do not snap easily unless eyelids are rubbed hard.

Using makeup remover or applying facial products do not snap the suture points.

This procedure is Not Reversible. Permenent. Reversible procedure to remove the stitches. Suture have 1% of rupture possibility. However, technique has been modified, rupture rate is significantly decreased compared to non-modified method.

As good as permanent.

Suitable for candidates with:

· Very fat eyelids. Good indication would be using sticky eyelid tapes. Candidate cannot form the creases with sticky tapes.

· Unilateral upper eyelid crease

My left eye has got the double eyelid, while the other one has monolid. Can you just charge for one eye?

When we perform double eyelid creation, we will look at:

1) the height of the crease to balance on your left eye

2) The possibility of increasing the crease on both sides for a more prominent look

3) the folds of the crease to create the symmetry

4) the consistency of the crease depth and many more…

We do not have separate charges for one eye. We have to look at the symmetry, skin condition, muscle roll, and mark your left eye according to the right eye’s crease height. We have instalment available if you like.

May i also know how long is the recovery period?

During the first 3 days post-surgery, your eyes would face some bruising and swelling. Most patients return to work on day 3 from the surgery date. I also have patients who return to work immediately the next day with a pair of glasses. By day 7, most of them are happy with the results. It all depends on the individual. I can only roughly estimate that the swelling comes down by 70% at a week.

and during the recovery period can one enter into school or fully rest at home during the recovery period?

There is no restriction to where you like to go. Avoid strenuous activities for the first 3 days to prevent aggravating swelling to the eye area. Please avoid alcohol during this time.

how much are you charging for one eye only?

We do not have separate charges for one eye. We have to look at the symmetry, skin condition, muscle roll, and mark your left eye according to the right eye’s crease height. We have instalment available if you like.

-if i opt to operate on both eyes, will the double eyelid formed another crease? or just merged into one?

It depends on your current double eyelid crease. As I mentioned, the factors above would determine how the crease would form. This will require an assessment on a face to face session. Please come for a consult and we can discuss from there. My Clinic Manager can assist you in arranging the appointment.

I am not sure if the term cosmetic would meant make up.
