The benefits for all patients of double eyelid surgery
As a form of Blepharoplasty, double eyelid surgery can make a significant difference as the eyes are one of the most expressive areas of your face and only require small tweaks to create noticeable changes.
Thanks to double eyelid surgery, patients in Sydney can see a reduction in sagging skin and wrinkles that form around the eyes as we age. This one-off procedure offers an additional benefit of simplifying the application of makeup thanks to a more visible second crease on the upper eyelid.
The primary benefits of eyelid surgery include:
- Greater expression of the eyes
- Visually larger eyes
- Improved symmetry
- An enhanced upper eyelid fold
- Speedy recovery
- Definition of the eyelid crease
- Reduced puffiness
The double eyelid surgery procedure can improve the scope of vision in cases where the single upper eyelid crease causes a narrowing effect. By creating a second crease, the eyelid is opened more, allowing for a more comprehensive view.
What happens during double eyelid surgery?
The procedure is quite simple and involves the removal of excess fat or tissue from the eyelids to reveal more of the eye. A small incision is made to remove the skin or fat which is then sealed with a radiofrequency pen.
A deep layer of stitches is also used to lift the eyelid which creates a deeper lid crease to form the double eyelid. If required, a similar procedure can be performed on the lower eyelid below the lash line.
