Double eyelid surgery is often referred to as an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty (also known as Asian Double Eyelid Surgery). The double eyelid surgery before and after result is a crease that gives the eye a bigger and brighter appearance. This can reduce the wrinkles around the eye and provide a more youthful look to the face.

Want to look younger and reduce wrinkles?

There are specific defining features in Asian facial aesthetics than many people wish to keep while also appearing younger, with bigger brighter eyes. Asian double eyelid surgery offers a youthful and vibrant appearance while maintaining important ethnic traits.

Significantly reduce wrinkles around the eyes in a similar fashion to anti-wrinkle injections via a one-off procedure. The most popular reason why most women receive double eyelid surgery is to simplify the application of makeup. The second crease on the upper eyelid creates a more visible eyelid for ease of application.

Some of the benefits of the procedure include:

  • Bigger more expressive eyes
  • An improved symmetry of the eyes
  • Enhancement the fold in upper eyelid fold
  • Definition of the upper eyelid crease
  • More effective eye makeup
  • Reduced puffiness

Improve Your Scope of Vision with Non-cosmetic Benefits

Asian double eyelid surgery can help improve your scope of vision as the single upper eyelid crease can often have a narrow field of vision. By creating the second crease, the eyelid opens further making tasks like driving easier as you view more of your surroundings.

How it Works

The procedure removes excess fat or from the eyelids, altering their appearance. The operation requires an incision to remove the skin or fat, the skin is cut using radiofrequency pen that cuts and seals the skin.

Then a layer of stitches are taken in the deep layer of the skin to the muscle that lifts the eyelid (levator muscle and the tarsus cartilage) and that deepens the lid crease and creates the double eyelid.

A similar procedure can be performed on the lower eyelid below the lash line or inside of the eyelid. This method is called the transconjunctival approach which removes any visible incisions. This is the preferred technique for patients who require the removal or addition of fat.

Difference between Double eyelid and Blepharoplasty:

Recently Asian girls with no upper crease come to have double eyelid which became a simple procedure and can be done under local anesthesia. The height of the crease can change depending on the patient preference, some clients like very low eyelid crease and some like a high skin crease.

The normal height of skin crease in caucasian is around 10 mm while in asian it varies from 5-8 mm.  The aim for this procedure is to create a crease in the upper eyelid with or without removing excess skin while in blepharoplasty we only remove excess skin in a person who has double eyelid already.

The goal of Asian eyelid surgery is to create a crease in the upper eyelid in the Asian who has a partial or absent upper-eyelid crease. By doing so, eye makeup can be more easily applied and the eyes can appear brighter and more attractive. There are many shapes that our surgeons can work with you to design based on your eye shape, facial shape, and preferences. Image credit:

Most Popular FAQs

Excess skin on the upper eyelid can result in a droopy, aged appearance, often considered to look puffy. In some cases, the upper field of vision can be hindered. Double eyelid surgery can help to rectify this, restoring clearer vision to those affected.

The procedure is often performed on the lower eyelid to correct sagging, improving wrinkles and skin texture.

Before deciding to undergo double eyelid surgery, we recommend visiting the experienced staff at Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne for a detailed examination and discussion about the procedure and potential associated risks.

Double eyelid surgery often results in a short recovery time with bruising and swelling likely to appear the day after surgery. Recovery can be assisted with the use of a cold compress to reduce the swelling and bruising that may appear around the eyes and other areas of the face.

Post-surgery, thin bandages will be placed over the incision for several days, with stitches remaining for roughly a week. In some cases, self-absorbing stitches will be used which do not need to be removed.

The average healing time is a maximum of two weeks with patients being able to return to normal day-to-day activities after seven to ten days.

Risks and complications are often associated with any surgery and blepharoplasty is no exception. The significant risks can include:

  • Infection

  • Bleeding

  • Scarring

  • Inability to close eye

  • Dry eye

  • Irregular eyelid position

  • Double vision

For the highest quality double eyelid surgery, Melbourne has to offer, Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne features dedicated, highly-experienced and patient-focused staff who are dedicated to delivering the highest quality of care, with minimal risk.

The costs associated with double eyelid surgery often depend on the complexity of the procedure and whether it is being performed on the upper or lower eye.

If you are experiencing an obstruction to your visual field, the procedure may be covered by some health insurance providers. It is best to check with your health insurance provider to see what is covered under your policy. Your insurance provider may require formal visual field testing before approving the procedure.

The surgeon is incredibly attentive like you are his most important patient. He answers your questions at any hour after surgery. Before I decided on Dr Attalla I went to another very well known and publicized cosmetic surgeon. Dr Attalla and his staff have the best bedside manner and Dr Attalla has insisted on keeping an eye on my recovery, always making himself available

I have done both upper and lower blepharoplastry this April at Chelsea Cosmetics. I am so happy with the results now. It takes times to heal so you need patience. My eye areas are so rejuvenated and I enjoy the make up ever than before. I feel I should have done it earlier. Dr Mark listens to your concerns and provides the best advice. Dr Mark and team looks after you. Thank you.
