Double Eyelid Surgery Thread

Recommended Posts

Guest JAMIECHOI

My procedure was done at a clinic called MeeEenManDeulKi(미인만들기) in Shinsa-Dong(신사동) right down the street from BK Clinic. The reason why I chose my clinic was because, for one, the doctor didn't freak me out. The staff at BK just seemed so impersonal. The clinic I went to had extremely nice nurses and the doctor was nice. BK is a big time clinic whereas MeeEenManDeulKi only had one doctor and a team of three nurses.

The Consultation

I met with the doctor and he asked me questions like why I wanted to get my surgery and so on. Then, he took his tool and showed me a few examples and asked me which one I liked best. Then, he asked me if there was any particular celebrity whose eyes I liked. He did make sure to tell me that it probably wouldn't turn out exactly like hers because everyone's eye structure is different.

The Procedure

I went in and cleaned my face and they gave me a shirt to wear. I laid down on the bed and the nurses took about twenty minutes trying to put the IV into my arm because my vein kept hiding. This is when I started freaking out. I was so confident before the procedure but when I was actually lying on the table, I started to get scared. The doctor came in and turned on a cd (which had 윤도현-사랑했나봐 on it, I fell in love with the song!) and sat down and calmed me down. Then, he took out his blue marker and made a few marks on my eyes and nose(I also had a rhinoplasty). After that, he told me that the anesthesia was going to kick in and everything went blank. The doctor later told me that they put me to sleep so that I wouldn't feel the shots they had to put in my face. I could feel myself waking up from the anesthesia and all I really remember is the bright light and the machine that kept beeping. I couldn't feel anything because my face was numb. It wasn't the horrible kind of numb you get when getting cavities filled, though.

I could feel that he was cutting and stitching but I didn't feel an ounce of pain. After the procedure, I went to the recovery room. The procedure was not bad at all. It was the recovery process that was horrible. I laid down on the bed but I was so cold that my lips were blue and I was shivering. The nurses had to bring in a heater for me, in the middle of summer! Then the nurses gave me a green tea milkshake and I was allowed to go home. Once I got home I just kept falling in and out of consciousness. I'd wake up drenched in sweat and then fall asleep; wake up freezing cold and fall asleep. It was only for a day, though. After that, I was fine. I took several pills three times a day and couldn't wash my face. The third day I went back in for a checkup and the doctor changed my bandages, took out a few stitches and I had to get a shot in my buttcheek, which was antibiotics. I went in for three more checkups, the last checkup was when all the stitches and bandages came off.

I really like how my eyes turned out. The inner corner is what looks like KimTaeHee's eyes. The fold is not too big, not too small.

sweetfunnyhoney---did you get it cut or what?

and did your lids shrink at all?

ANDD ...haha sorry...

did your doctor know how to speak english?

i got the non-incision method. they pinched two dots and stitched one area

(i also got my inner corner cut/stitched)

of course they shrank, they were swollen like no other and slimmed down as months went by.

the doctor knew english very well, my krn is very limited so i started speaking konglish to the doctor but he was like, "dont worry, you can speak english to me, i understand"

---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)

lol thats like describing one of my eyes. I have one double eyelid and another single -_- it looks so dumb >< but im not considering surgery just yet, maybe if i grow a bit more it'l turn into a double xD

your so brave! i must praise you for that. Id probably faint at the sight of needles.

jamie---your eyelids definately look SUPER natural...

but the eyelids are tiny!...

when he experimented on you with the metal stick, is that what you looked like? did you want it that small?

your doctor seems cool, but if i were to go there, i dont want it that small....

what is non-incision method

and the other method? there are only 2 methods right? lol sorry.

I'm guessing the non-incision is when you just "jjib uh" your eyelid?

I recently started thinking about getting this surgery done. Are there any places in America that specialize in double eyelid surgery? I'm currently in Korea but I'll be leaving in 2 weeks, and there is no way I'd be able to get it done right now. No money + it's a big deal to talk to with my parents. I'd rather talk about it with them face to face.

Anyway, another thing is that I just turned 16 two months ago. Is is not recommended for youngin's to get this surgery?

My Experience-!!

I just got my ssang gah pul surgery about 9 hours ago,ha. I just got it done here where I live, Atlanta, rather than going to Korea or LA or something. The doctor was good, he was recommended by my aunt. There are two asian plastic surgeons in Atlanta that I know of, one is Korean and the other is Vietnamese. The Korean doctor was going to charge like $500 more than the Vietnamese guy and they both studied at the same schools and you know are pretty much equal. So I got it done with the Vietnamese doctor, Khuong Nguyen. Cost $1000, which is pretty good price.

I wasn't nervous at all for some reason. I just sat in this dentist-like chair and the nurse cleaned my face and put my hair in a plastic cap and some other protective coverings and gave me an antibiotic. Then the doctor put some numbing medicine in my eye and injected some kind medication (I'm assuming it was local anesthesia). The injections were the absolute worst part of the procedure they hurt like crazy. That's why my left eye is more swollen than my right eye because I strained and tensed up when he applied the injection in the left. Other than that all I could hear was the doctor cutting and stitching and a faint sound of the radio. He asked me to open my eyes from time to time.Afterwards, they sat me up and gave me a mirror and to my horror twas a red puffy eyed monster in my reflection. Total procedure took about 45 minutes.

Whenever I sneeze my eyes feel like they're going to explode. Hopefully with my many ice packs at the ready, the swelling will go down a bit. I hope my results will turn out as pretty as the people here who have posted pictures of theirs! And as soon as my eyes look presentable I'll post up some pics. I don't want to scare everybody with my eyes at their current state. I'm Korean and 16 yrs old almost 17 by the way, in case anyone was randomly wondering.

My eyelids must be in eyelid hell.
