Double eyelid surgery aesthetically enhances the upper eyelid creases, resulting in larger and brighter looking eyes.WHAT IS DOUBLE EYELID SURGERY?
Statistically, 50% of the Asians are born without double eyelids or the eyelid creases very shallow. The result is smaller looking eyes with puffy upper eyelids. For some people this is undesirable. Asian upper eyelid surgery allows the creation of double lid creases or the accentuating of less defined lid creases, hence brighter and larger-looking eyes.PROCEDURE
Dr. Lau carefully plans out an aesthetically-pleasing, elegantly proportioned eyelid crease that matches the other facial features of the Asian face. Using special suture fixation techniques that he learned from renowned cosmetic oculoplastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, Dr. Lau provides clean and sharp looking lids with long lasting, natural results.RECOVERY
The stitches will be removed 5-7 days post-operatively. Bruising will take 5-10 days to dissipate. Most of the soft tissue swelling will settle within the first two weeks, but the residual swelling can take 2-3 months to settle. After 7 - 10 days, most patients can return to normal social function, perhaps with some makeups. (The length of recovery varies among patients)BENEFITS
