Why is there a need to have double eyelids??

did you even read the thread? the first part of my post talks about why you could consider getting the surgery. another reason is for personal satisfaction.

Am I a good candidate for aesthetic eyelid surgery?

Any one or combination of the following conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery:

---excess skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids

---loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids, perhaps impairing vision

---puffy appearance to the upper eyelids, making the eyes look tired

---excess skin and fine, creepy wrinkles of the lower eyelids

---bags and dark circles under the eyes, often with a depression along the bony border of the lower eyelids

---droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye)

Aesthetic eyelid surgery can usually correct these problems, though other treatments may also need to be considered.

when you first get ssangkapeul surgery, don't you have to get it done really big or bigger than how you want it because as time goes by, it'll get smaller and smaller and eventually look like you didn't get it done at all? your eyes look great but I just heard this somewhere that a girl got it done but it's barely noticable that she has ssankapeul because it's so small.

reply back please^^

yeah i was worried about that, but that was all part of the consultation. i told him that, but he said if i wanted it any bigger, it wouldnt look right on me. there's more to just getting what you would like your eyes to look like, and what is actually achievable that would look natural and right for you. he took different factors into consideration and told me what he, as the professional, thought. i just trusted his judgement and let him do his job. haha.

My mom got hers done when she was in colleeg, 20+ years ago, and hers still look great... It didn't shrink at all ^^ and the technology is better now so I don't think it will shrink drastically o_O;;

yes i think so, otherwise i dont know how they would take it out...haha. because it's just partial incision, full incision, and pinching. the first two take the fat out.

I heard that as you get older the ssankapul goes away & you have to get it redone or something. is that true?

I'll post my experience, I've been getting loads of PMs about my surgery so here it goes!

WHEN: Mid-march

WHERE: Apkujung (in Seoul, Korea) REAL COSMETIC CLINIC

WEBSITE: http://www.realcosmetic.com

DOCTOR: forgot :P

My entire process took only one day.

3:00 PM went to talk with the assistant who asked questions like:

- What are you looking for?

- How big?

She told me the differences between incision/non incision.

Used a metal tool to suggest some ideas of what would look best AND natural for me.

Doctor came and just went into details about the process, before/after, and gave the exact idea of what my ssang ga pul would look like.

6 hours later (no eating whatsoever, not even water) it was time for surgery.

Got into a gown, took my before pictures, wore a shower cap and I just layed in a dentist-looking chair.

I didnt feel any shots, they just put numbing cream all over my eyes and waited a good 10 minutes.

During the whole surgery process, there was no pain, but I could feel heat (because of the bright light), I just felt the string (stitches string) going over my face, and them pulling my eyelid. The nurse would constantly ask me to look up at this number they have on the ceiling and never to close my eyes (blinking is okay), so basically i just sat there patiently, they were doing there thing, next thing you know, 30 minutes later i'm done.

The nurse escorted me into a nice room, if i felt dizzy she gave me the option to lie down for a couple minutes or hours until i was better. fortunately, i was feeling completley fine and i just went home.

They gave me medication for 10 days, anti-bacteria cream, and 2 icepacks.

So basically, my eyes were huge and swollen for a good 2 weeks.

here are some pictures:

BEFORE:

2-3 WEEKS WITH EYELINER:

NOW (JUST TOOK THIS RIGHT NOW :P):

z43905169.jpg

so its been a good 3 1/2 months since surgery.

hope that helped everyone even though it was VERY brief lol..
