The Double Eyelid procedure is suitable for individuals who desire to achieve a more defined eyelid crease or address the appearance of monolids (single eyelids). If you have naturally occurring monolids or asymmetrical eyelids that cause self-consciousness or difficulty with applying makeup, the Double Eyelid procedure can help create a more aesthetically pleasing and balanced appearance. It is essential to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to assess your individual situation and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the Double Eyelid procedure.
Features & Benefits
Enhanced Eye Definition
One of the primary benefits of double eyelid surgery is the creation of a more defined and noticeable upper eyelid crease. This can help make the eyes appear larger, rounder, and more aesthetically balanced, contributing to an overall enhanced appearance.
Improved Makeup Application
With a well-defined upper eyelid crease, individuals often find it easier to apply eye makeup, such as eyeshadow and eyeliner. The presence of the crease provides a natural guide for makeup application and allows for a wider range of eye makeup styles.
For individuals who desire a double eyelid appearance, achieving the desired crease through surgery can lead to increased self-confidence and a more positive self-image. The procedure can help align one’s appearance with personal preferences and cultural beauty standards.
Subtle yet Noticeable Change
Double eyelid surgery aims to create a natural-looking crease that harmonizes with the individual’s facial features. The result is often a subtle yet noticeable change that enhances the eyes while maintaining the overall appearance of the face.

A double eyelid procedure is a surgical procedure that creates a crease in the upper eyelid for individuals who do not naturally have one. It is commonly performed on individuals of East Asian descent who have a single eyelid or a less defined eyelid crease.
There are several techniques for a double eyelid procedure. The most common method involves creating an incision along the desired crease line and removing a small strip of excess skin and fat. The eyelid is then reshaped, and sutures are placed to create the double eyelid crease. Another technique called the non-incisional method involves making small punctures in the eyelid to create the crease without removing tissue.
Good candidates for a double eyelid procedure are individuals who have a single eyelid or a poorly defined eyelid crease and desire a more pronounced double eyelid appearance. It is important to have realistic expectations and be in good overall health before considering this procedure.
Recovery time can vary, but generally, patients can expect swelling and bruising in the first week or two following the surgery. You may experience tightness or mild discomfort in the eyelid area. Cold compresses and prescribed ointments can help manage these symptoms. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions, which may include using eye drops and avoiding strenuous activities.
While you will notice immediate changes in the appearance of your eyelids after the surgery, it can take several weeks or even months for the full results to become apparent. Swelling will gradually subside, allowing you to appreciate the final outcome and the presence of a well-defined double eyelid crease.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Potential complications of a double eyelid procedure may include infection, bleeding, scarring, asymmetry, eyelid ptosis (drooping), dryness or irritation of the eyes, or dissatisfaction with the aesthetic outcome. Choosing an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon can help minimize these risks.
Yes, a double eyelid procedure can be performed as a standalone procedure or combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or brow lift surgery for a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the eye area.
The cost of a double eyelid procedure can vary depending on factors such as the surgeon’s experience, geographic location, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and the specific technique used. It’s best to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon for an accurate cost estimate based on your specific needs.
