Double eyelid creation or surgery can be performed by clipping (buried suture technique) or incisional method. Wong’s Plastic Surgery Centre specializes in the incisional method which can be partial or full incisional method to create a long-lasting, natural fold that is natural and attractive.
Double Eyelid SURGERY PROCEDURES
The full incision method is the most common and popular double eyelid fold surgery type. In the long term, it produces the most natural look and is widely considered the best technique for the permanent reshaping of the eyes.
Out of the three methods, the full incision method produces the most satisfaction in terms of results. Young adults in their 20s and 30s will benefit the most from this method as the end result will become very natural looking over time.
Of course, this method does come with a downside, which is that it takes a longer time for the healing process to complete and that natural look to take its place.
Also known as scarless double eyelid surgery, the buried suture method is minimally invasive and is used to create natural looking double eyelids. This method of double eyelid fold creation gained popularity when it first came about several decades ago as it was one of the first such procedures to create folds, and also because invasive procedures are not something everyone is comfortable with.
If you are someone who has been using “double eyelid tape” to lift the eyelids and have thin skin, you might want to consider this procedure. Some things to take note of would include a higher likelihood of asymmetrical results and less lasting results.
The full incision method is the most common and popular double eyelid fold surgery type in our practice. However the partial incision method may be suitable for younger patients who want a shorter down time.
The partial incision method involves an incision connecting the 3 fixation points use in the buried suture technique. It therefore has a shorter incision than the full incision method.
Of course, this method does come with a downside, which is that it takes a longer time for the healing process to complete than the buried suture technique. It however has longer lasting results when performed in suitable patients.
