Double Eyelid Surgery Thread

Hi everyone! UPDATE As you all know, I decided to go with Dr. Andrew Choi from VIPSURGERY in Koreatown, CA. I put down my initial deposit in September to secure my surgery date for December

Hello everyone! After years of contemplating surgery, reading through this thread, and doing a lot of research, I've finally decided to take the plunge and get double eyelid surgery. Today I had my fi

I am from Hong Kong and always had weak double eyelid. I had a visible line but it was not even on each eye and didn't look like double eyelid from far away only very close you can see the small line.

I'm getting a double eyelid consultation on Thursday with a possible surgery scheduled the next day. I have worn double eyelid glue/tape for 3.5 years and it has given me a very light indentation/wrinkle that can become double eyelids if I rubbed my eyes (but it doesn't stay). Would this hinder my surgery?
My other question is why in most Asian double eyelid surgeries, the crease is extended all the way down to the corner of the eye, sometimes connecting with the corner. When I do my glue or tape I usually stop the crease around the mongolian fold...would this be possible to imitate in surgery or is that an obvious telltale that it is fake?

frowned and opened eyes really hard to stimulate double eyelid from wrinkle (nothing on tho)

But I am just really afraid of this, which I have seen a lot in pics where the crease goes all the way down. With one eyelid being infold while the other is out fold--and I already know my left eye is smaller than my right plus the crease is smaller and harder to maintain with tape/glue b/c I think it has a thicker/more prominent mongolian fold so I am afraid that I will end up with one tapered and one parallel eye if the crease is extended down

Thank you!! I'm really nervous if you can't tell haha. I've been trying to stimulate an in-outfold and an infold but its kinda hard with tape and I'm afraid to use glue b/c it sometimes causes a lot of redness that might not go away before my consultation. I can make an infold and it makes me eye hella weird, like it just stops randomly and isn't smooth and elongated like other people's infold pics.

i just did eye surgery 1 mth ago in seoul. currently i'm not totally satisfied although i believed i picked the right surgeon. he seems quite skilled also luckily he was responsive to my concerns and promised me a revision in 6 mths if the results don't get much better. 
here's my lesson learned : 
1. no matter how much you trust your surgeon, you need to have a clear idea what results you're after. my mistake was to left everything to him although now i have a clear idea of exactly what i want (too late)! of course, we need to be realistic with what can be achieved as well.
2. for those of you with excess skin / fat in your upper eyelids, i recommend drawing the lines while sitting/standing up vertically. my eyes look very different when lying down horizontally compared to standing/sitting up vertically. i took me a while to figure out how such a skilled surgeon (i really trusted him a lot!) could have underestimated the excess skin/fat to remove by quite a margin! i really don't think it's swelling as he claimed but i will need to wait a couple months more to be 100% sure.

Hi I'm new here and I'm trying to upload a pic of my double eyelid surgery I did just 2 weeks ago..

But I'm just wondering when can I start putting fake lashes? I have a party to attend to and it will be literally 1 month after my surgery. Do you guys think its okay to put fake lashes by then?

hey soylatte, could you explain what exactly your results were vs. your expectations? would you go so far as to get another surgery in the future?
after browsing through 565 pages in this thread and being highly observant of other people's eyes for the past month, i believe the best results are for those who already have existing double eyelid and just wanted to make the crease more noticeable. i start to think i was not being realistic and expecting too much the outcome as i originally have monolids + excess skin/fat. I believe with a few other surgeries e.g. facelift, telescopic browlift etc. i may be able to look natural with double eyelids but that's like completely changing my face (i know my face is not perfect but no thanks)! 
my advice is to study your eyes carefully (include the face structure too) and maybe use eyelid tape (not regularly) to see what kind of natural double eyelid is achievable BEFORE doing the surgery. i wonder where we can get the curvy thin wire thing the surgeons use to show you how the results would look like?!
i will most likely go for the revision in the future as the surgery resulted in very noticeable hooded eyes due to excess skin/fat - i think the revision will be simple i.e. just remove excess skin (the surgeon told me that fat under the skin could not be removed on its own). also he promised to do the revision free of charge. it remains to be seen if my new double eyelids can really look natural at all after a simple revision (cut excess skin/fat) but there's really nothing i can do now but wait for that 6 months to be up.

Soylatte. Could you post a pic of your eyes here. I'm nearly into the 1monyj mark and i guess I have to say that I'm also not completely satisfied with my eyes as well.. But people have been telling me it will take 3 months+ to be actually normal.. So I really hope it turns out okay after 2-3 months .

@eyelidgirl I just hit my 6th week mark and I think that putting on fake eyelashes will be fine as long as nothing touches the incision line. I'm still going to wait at least another month to put on eye shadow just so it gives my incision line extra time to heal.

My surgeon said that my natural creases were not low nor very high. But its considered as high-ish? He told me that if he did the surgery, he would have to make my eyelids slightly higher.

I'm not too sure why its so bloody swollen lol.. It COULD be because my crease is high or it could just be that my metabolism is slow?(hence why my swelling went down slower?)

I'm gonna try to find a recent pic of me and post it up here.. It'll be great if I could chat to your via a social app!

I'll pm you :)))))))
