At CK Plastic Surgery, Dr Kim has developed the mastery and finesse with which to deliver the best results to his patients while securing their safety and well-being.

Methods to create double eyelids

The surgery that heightens the tip or the bridge of the nose using autologous or biocompatible materials makes up the majority of rhinoplasty surgeries. Because Asians generally have a flat nose, this makes the face looks flat and dull. Therefore, heightening the nose can make the face look slimmer changing ones impression.
In rhinoplasty of a flat nose is not just heightening the nose but to consider one’s face structure and finding the correct height.


Non-incision method

There is the Non-Incisional Method which is usually recommended for patients whose eyelid is more pliable and yielding to sutures being placed inside the upper eyelid to create desired crease. This process requires the least amount of recovery time for patients.

Incision method

Incisional Method is necessary for patients who either have more fatty tissue or excess skin on the upper eyelid. This procedure consists of cutting the skin, removing any skin, fat or tissue then creating the perfect fold with the stitches to create a pleasing upper eyelid.

Partial incision

For patients who require just a small incision of the eyelid without the full incisional across the eyelid the Partial Incisional method is used. There is a small 5mm scar and much less recovery time required than the Full Incisional Method
