Common Double Eyelid Surgery Techniques in Singapore

One thing that seems to be very consistent with time is the fact that cosmetic surgeries are being unveiled every waking day in the pursuit of perfection. One of those that have been quite prevalent in recent times is the double eyelids surgery also known as Blepharoplasty. It is a procedure where the skin around the eye is reshaped so as to give the upper eyelid a crease. It has been mostly used by the South Koreans and there are three procedures that can be used to get the desired end product.

Full Incision procedure
This full incision eyelid method is highly recommended for those that have thick and droopy eyelids or for those that would wish to have double eyelids that are irreversible. It is the most common form of procedure that is used in this case and involves the use of incisions made for the removal of excess fat around the eyes. To get the best possible result, it is advisable that this particular procedure be done by the best possible skill that one can get. It will help you to decrease scarring and further costs in terms of revision surgery.

The procedure takes around 30 minutes on each of the 2 visits that are required for the procedure and a local anesthesia together with a sedative are administered to the patient. After the surgery has been performed, the patient can have the stitches removed in utmost 7 days with a healing period of at least one week.

Partial Incision

For people that have excessive fat around their eyes and want to remove it with the least scarring and swelling or require revision surgery this is the best procedure for them. A small incision is made to remove the excess fat and the result is long lasting but can become undone.

Just like in the case of the full incision, a local anesthesia and a sedative are administered and the same two visits of at least 30 minutes will be required to get the procedure done. However, as you would expect, it takes a shorter time to get healed taking at least 4 days for the stitches to be removed and 1 or 2 weeks for one to be healed.

Non incision
Perhaps one of the procedures that most people might consider but it is ideal for those people that have single eyelids or those that do not have eyelids that are excessively droopy or thick. It is also ideal for those that want fast results without any scarring or swelling not to mention those that are afraid of going under the knife. It is also referred to as the pinch method and makes use of the small opening made in the eyelids to achieve the results. There are several methods that can be used including one where a natural adhesive is used. The others differ depending on the number of openings made.

Anesthesia and sedation are necessary in the 30 minutes 2 visit procedure only that the stitches in this case are removed after 2 days and the recovery period is around 4 days utmost.
Keep in mind that as much as most people may prefer the last option, in most cases, the structure of one’s eyelids plays a primary role in choosing which procedure is most appropriate.
