Double Eyelid Surgery What it is

What it is

Double eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty or Asian eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to create a natural-looking crease in the upper eyelid. This surgical technique is commonly sought after by individuals who desire to enhance the appearance of their eyes by adding definition and depth to the eyelid contour.

Double eyelid surgery can provide a range of benefits, including the creation of a more prominent eyelid crease, the illusion of larger and brighter eyes, and improved makeup application. It can also address concerns such as hooded or droopy eyelids, asymmetry, or a lack of crease due to genetics or aging.

How it works

During the procedure, a skilled surgeon carefully removes excess skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelid area. This allows for the creation of a new eyelid fold or the enhancement of an existing one. The surgeon takes into consideration the individual’s facial features and preferences to ensure a natural and harmonious result. By creating a double eyelid appearance, the surgery can provide various benefits. It can make the eyelid crease more visible, giving the illusion of larger and brighter eyes. It’s important to note that double eyelid surgery is a highly personalized procedure. Every individual has unique goals and expectations, so get started by booking a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Double Eyelid Surgery FAQ

+ - Will the results of double eyelid surgery look natural?

The goal of double eyelid surgery is to create a natural-looking result that enhances the eyes while maintaining individual facial features. Dr. Linder takes into account factors such as eyelid shape, symmetry, and personal preferences to ensure a harmonious outcome.

+ - Why choose eyelid surgery over other treatments?

Eyelid surgery can quickly and easily correct drooping eyelids and other surrounding facial issues, including under-eye bags and heavy, tired-looking eyes. In most cases, these issues cannot be corrected long-term with injectables, topicals, or other treatments. The best option for lasting correction is surgery.

+ - What can I expect during recovery and healing?

Recovery periods for eyelid surgeries can vary depending on the extent of the procedure. However, most patients are back to their normal activities within one week.

Side effects can vary from patient to patient. Most patients experience mild to moderate swelling for three to four days following their procedure and may be bruised for up to two weeks. Redness and bruising at the incision site are also common, as is short term blurred vision, watery eyes, light sensitivity or dryness. Patients can use cold compresses and keep their head elevated after surgery to help alleviate some of the bruising and swelling. Dr. Linder provides additional post-op instructions prior to surgery.

Sutures are removed one week after your surgery and Dr. Linder usually likes to see you again one month after surgery. Additional visits may be scheduled as needed.

+ - Can I drive myself home after surgery?

No. Regardless of the procedure, Dr. Linder and the surgical facility will only release patients to a friend, relative, or other designated driver. This person is required to drive you to surgery, wait for you in the waiting room, and then drive you home. Even if you feel well enough to drive, taking precautions is important, especially during the first few days after your surgery.

+ - Will insurance cover my eyelid surgery?

Insurance will cover your surgery only if there is significant visual obstruction due to eyelid drooping. If your eyelid drooping is to a degree where insurance may cover the procedure, we will do the appropriate tests to prove medical necessity and submit the information to your insurance company and try to get the procedure approved for you. If your eyelids are not drooping to the point where they affect your vision, your surgery will be considered a cosmetic procedure and Dr. Linder will discuss self-pay pricing with you. Lower eyelid sagging and fat pouches are never covered by insurance and will be performed as a cosmetic procedure. Although we do not accept payment plans for our services, you can go to www.carecredit.com to apply for a healthcare credit card. You will pay us with your Care Credit card prior to your service and then pay your Care Credit bill monthly as you like.

+ - Is there anything I should do prior to surgery?

On the day of your surgery, you must do two important things. 1.) Do not eat or drink 8 hours prior to your surgery, and 2.) Arrange transportation to and from your surgery. Your transportation must be with you at check-in, wait for you in the waiting room during your procedure, then drive you home.

Five to seven days prior to surgery you need to stop taking any aspirin products and blood thinners. If you are not on a prescription blood thinner you just make sure you don't take any products with aspirin in them. (Aspirin, Alleve, Ibuprofen, BC Powder, Fish Oil, etc. Tylenol/acetaminophen products are OK.)

If you are on prescription blood thinners, you will need a cardio clearance from the doctor who prescribes them stating that they approve you to quit the medicine five days prior to surgery or however many days they feel you are safe to be off of the medicine. Our office helps you with this. Make sure to let us know which blood thinner you take and what doctor prescribes them.
