Although there are numerous different methods described Dr. Kim has used this technique to place the scar in the lower eyelash margin to best hide that the procedure has been performed.
Non-Incisional Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery – For younger Asian clients who have thin skinned eyelids, the Asian double eyelid surgery can be accomplished without the need for incisions or cuts. Asian Eyelid Surgeon Dr. Kim will use either two interlocking suture loops (DST) or five separate fixation sutures to get the desired shape that the patient is looking for. With this procedure there will be no visible scars, and the swelling is very minimal. Often patients are out in public within a day or two and the swelling is not noticable.
Incisional Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery – Patients who have thicker, heavier eyelid skin and excess upper eyelid fat are better candidates for the incisional technique which can improve recovery time and the amount of scarring.
Partial Incision Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery – With this technique, a small incision is made just along the eyelid and through the intended crease through which the extra fatty tissue is removed. With the partial incision Asian eyelid double fold surgery, there is a small 5mm scar and minimal swelling.
Full Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery –The full Incision procedure is recommended by the Dr. Kim when there is thick or excessive skin, fat, ptosis (droopy eyelids), or when a dramatic look is requested by his patient.
