Hi! Thanks for replying! Those pics were taken a day after surgery. Yeah, the inner corner is a scab and it's going away but i still have a huge indention in the middle of my eye...I worry if my surgeon didn't fully close the suture? 

I got the tapered crease to match my other eye but I don't think it's matching a whole lot. I think the swelling has gone down pretty much all but it doesn't seem to match my other eye...I think its cause my operated lid was originally thicker than my non operated lid, and also he may have cut it too high..I"m not sure

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

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

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've got request for sharing my experience. I had my upper eyelid surgery done on May 23 in Toronto, Canada.
Was severely swollen and bruised for the first couple of days - stayed home for 9 days before returning to work.

Now everything looks pretty good. So I'd like to share some pictures of comparison - but it's not possible to upload here.

Let me know if you guys want to see them or have any questions about it.

​hi! i think it is way too soon to tell whether or not they are even. i am a little over 2 months in (turning 3 months on the 22nd of june) and my eyes are still asymmetrical, swollen, and a lot smaller than what i expected. the swelling of my crease was at its peak at 1 week, then slowly started to go down at the second week. after a month, i think my crease was half the size lol. the size of the crease goes down exponentially. from what i can see, i can imagine it to be similar to your other eyelid. as for the indentation, i do see it, and i didnt have it but hopefully it will go away.. i am not an expert on this stuff so i can't say much. but, it is really too soon to tell the results of it but from what i can see i think your eyes look so natural! if i were to see you at first glance i really wouldn't have noticed. i would be happy with the results you have now :)

​Thanks for your reply! It has already gone down a lot since my last updated, and I am really happy with the results. there's still bruising but it looks really natural now...I hope yours turns out well too!

I really want to do it, but right now im trying to do it naturally with double eyelid stickers. but the bad thing about these is that once one of your inner lines get erased you have NO lines at all so you look UGLYY. so i take my time in doing that.

What inner lines are you referring to?

I have quite a bit of experience with making upper eyelid creases with tape; however the tape I use is not regular eyelid tape, but they are Opti-fold tape.

I have a quick question. Is there an eye surgery where the eye only becomes bigger when you open your eyes wide?

When I look at some girls, I notice that their eyes don't look big. Then they open their eyes and the eyes become a lot bigger. It's like they look shocked or something.

Or is this because of those circle contact lenses?

Yes please share with us pictures of your eyes! I also did surgery on May 26, but its still swelling now, so I don't really know how it will look like when its all healed. Would love to see some comparisons.

Hi Paperbunny your eyes look so good at just 2 weeks post op! Could you share pictures of your current 3 months eyes? I am kinda worried my crease height will keep dropping, I am only 3 weeks post op but the height is pretty low already. May I know around how long did it take for your crease height to 'stabilize'?? Thank you! :D

thanks! honestly, you really can't tell in the picture but my eyes look really swollen 2 weeks post op. as i said earlier, my eyes have dramatically changed in crease size over these past 3 months. my favorite was definitely at 4 weeks post op (1 month)

this is today. which is about 3 weeks post op in a couple of days.

the left hand side are my eyes. you can see that my left crease is significantly smaller than the right! which is sad, because i love my eye on the right! haha. but actually, in real life the right eye looks swollen still. i popped in the picture on thebottom of this collage to show how the swelling of my eyes have predicted my current healing situation. my left eye is swollen at the ptosis, which also shows how my left eye is still catching up to the right eye on the ptosis. the right eye also has a significantly more swollen crease, while the left eye is not as swollen.

honestly, ive emailed dr. kwon and he says that my swelling is normal and it will even out soon. it honestly doesnt bug me because i know that it will change, after seeing how it has transformed over the past couple of months shows to me how much less swollen it could be.

i also imagine my right eye to be my left eye, and my left eye to widen a bit more vertically. my left eye has been fairly stable, and i really hope that it does not get any smaller! but literally, my eyes are like O_o haha.

on the right is a comparison on how i used to do my makeup when i had monolids, and how my eyes looked relaxed and when i smile. the bottom is a recent picture of my eyes, with makeup, and how they look like relaxed and when i smile. as you as you can see, when i wear makeup the asymmetry is really not obvious at all. 

also a picture of my eyes closed really show how little of the line you see! it looks relatively normal and natural.

hi, im a 15 year old korean girl. i've been using tape and glue since i was about 13 years old in an attempt to create a permanent and prominent crease. thanks to the glue/tape method, i currently have a crease that measures to be about 6 mm when my eyes are closed. but when i open my eyes, the crease seems to get "swallowed up" and is barely visible. my creases will appear on their own if i've been using tape or glue for a few days consecutively. but if not, they kinda just disappear or don't look as deep? idk. they're there, but they aren't as prominent as i'd want them to be.

my mom actually mentioned that she might allow me to get double eyelid surgery in a few years (junior year at the earliest, most likely after graduating high school) if i really want it. initially, i was opposed to getting any kind of plastic surgery done because there's a high chance that the procedure could go wrong and i'd end up looking fake or unnatural. but i've been doing a little research these days, and im starting to want the surgery more and more. im just tired of the tape/glue--temporary happiness--disappearing crease cycle. should i just get the procedure and risk the possible side effects? or should i play it safe and just continue with the tape and glue? also, if i do get the procedure, should i go full incisional or suture method? anybody have experience or can relate to my strugges?

lmao i have a few more years to think about this, but i need to know which direction to continue in/

thank you guys so muchhhh ♥

Since you have a few more years to 'think' about it, you still have some time for action steps in respect to your double eyelid goal.

If you only had a few months to wait through -- after you had your two year tape-using experience that uncovered you had potential to make permanant double-lids -- then it would be slightly more appropriate to choose to favor the emotions which would inevitably lead to surgery.

But since you naturally had some kind of intuition to make your own double eyelids -- rather than letting the surgeon make it for you -- if you follow that youthful unbounded thinking pattern and successfully create your own upper eyelid creases, then you will also gain a  priceless knowing of self-reliance, which in the aggregate, will benefit you in so many residual ways for goal achievement later in life, that surgery can't do for a person who has eyelids susceptible for making one's own creases.

The challenge you are facing now is not a lack of will to make your own double-lids -- as you probably already intuitively know that considering surgery right now is such a disproportionate solution for eyelids susceptible to creasing -- but the challenge is that you need to try a new method since you had already uncovered the old way's limitations; that is, the old way didn't lead to progressive permanant results.

The antiquated way of making upper eyelid creases is not effective, because using basic tape or glue doesn't reposition creases in the skin.  It doesn't provide scaffolding support on the platform of upper eyelid skin where eyeshadow is generally applied.  This mentioned platform of skin must be kept extended and flat, in order to concentrate tensional force onto the intended crease to be made.  Also, limitations of glue and basic tape include the amount of crease-folding-time you have access to.  What this means is that 7~8 hours of each day, your to-be-made crease has been inadvertently spent recovering from wrinkling in the form of long periods of closed eye activity commonly known as sleep.

When you are trying to make a permanent wrinkle on your upper eyelid, but you allow the wrinkle to be 'unwound' for significant amounts of time each night, it's no wonder that the crease will take years to make.  Think of your forehead lines.  Since a person does not utilize those muscles as frequently, that is among the reasons why it takes decades for permanant forehead wrinkles to form.

So now when while you sleep, if you could have your double eyelid crease kept folded, at the same time having the 'eye shadow' platform of skin kept flat, then you will realize a way get progressively more stable creases within weeks at a time.

You need to research a bit more on other proven methods of making upper eyelid creases.

no, there was no pain after the surgery. there was hardly any pain even right after surgery. the healing was just annoying because i had a lot of eye boogers and my eyes were itchy. more discomfort and annoyance than pain. i did not even take any painkillers, except right after the surgery.

Hey guys I'm getting surgery due to my eyelashes poking my cornea around late August. I would travel to Korea but it's quite pricey on top of surgery, I live in New York and I was wondering if anyone here has got the surgery done in NY if so recommendations on the surgeons.
