Double Eyelid Surgery Thread


Recommended Posts

Guest happytogetehr
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.

So do eye boogers caused by the surgery? I know how itchy you felt at that time because sometimes small things came into my eyes and I felt very uncomfortable!

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.

Hi, everyone!

I'm almost at my 3-year double eyelid surgery anniversary. My eyes came out uneven, and I've been contemplating a revision for the past two years. But now I think I will hold off until the asymmetry *really* starts to bug me.

I wanted to let you know that I created a new blog about my experience here...with tons of healing progression photos. I hope some of you will find it helpful!

Thanks!

wow, the after pics of people are amazing. I was planning on getting it done this summer, but things didn't work out..but I think I am going for sure after high school (right before college)..even though i wanted sangapul when i take my senior pics and go to prom and stuff.

I am just really scared of those shots and the paining & suffering. but i guess its worth the eyelids. I should consult Vision Care Austin now!

Hello, I've been a long time lurker of this thread and after reading through for years, I've come down to these clinics:Banobagi, Sehyun clinic, and JW. I plan on going to Korea in the near future and feel like I am finally sure about double eyelid surgery. I have heard many good things about Banobagi, however, I remember someone posting their pics after getting their eyes done at Sehyun clinic- her eyes looked extremely natural and nice, yet dolly. That was a long time ago and I can't remember the user. Any info would be very much appreciated!!!! Sehyun's site is http://www.sh-clinic.co.kr/aging/1. I'm hoping it's the right site and clinic that the user was referring to.

I will be getting my eyes done by Dr. Edward Kwak in Manhattan in 1 month. I like the type of double eyelid shapes he makes and I don't think I have ever read a bad review on him.

Anyone getting their nose done along with their eyes? (the rhinoplasty thread is very very dead). Surgical or non surgical (injections)? I've been wanting to get fillers for a more 3D nose for a long time, but every time I see "filler induced necrosis" online I back the fck out.

hi everyone~ 

i just got my surgery done in LA at Dr. Choi's office (not the fancy VIP one, but the one in San Gabriel) and tbh his bedside manner was pretty lacking.

I got the DTS done and today is my 5th day postop. So my right eye has more "holes" and stitches that are visible on the skin than my left eye. And on my left eye, whenever i squint, I can feel the nylon suture. Does this mean that it's coming loose? I can't feel any of the stitches moving around on my right eye, but whenever I laugh and squint my left eye, i can feel something tugging and moving around.

pls help aah >.<

Hey everyone,

I had incisional eyelid surgery, epicanthoplasty, and ptosis correction done last summer with Dr Kenneth Kim in LA. I'm considering a revisional surgery in Korea, not because my eyes turned out poorly, but they're just not what I wanted. I've been looking at Teuim, Regen, and ITEM Clinic for my revision, and still waiting on responses, but I'm really hoping Teuim will work out for me, price-wise. My primary question is, what clinic do you guys think would be a value pick? I'm willing to spend about $3000 USD TOPS on this --I'm a student and this is already a huge fold -- does that sound about reasonable? What are some cheaper, quality options in terms of clinics and/or procedures? Also, not sure if it matters, but in case it does make things easier for the doctor (and thus my chance at finding a good value,) I do have a very clear idea of what I want, in measurements. 

If anyone can share their experiences with revisional eyelid surgery in Korea, especially price points, that would be fantastic. Thanks y'all for reading  :)

I want to share a video and a website of Sunnydahye. I watched her makeup tutorials and she recently had plastic surgery done in Korea and shared her experience online... I find Sunny already pretty before, so I was surprised she got surgery. Anyways, I thought it would be interesting video to watch for people who are interested going to South Korea for plastic surgery. I've never done plastic surgery, but I've always been curious about it, and wanting to look prettier...

Hi! I just went to see Dr. Andrew Choi in Los Angeles for a consultation and have booked an appointment in November! I figure doing it during the holidays will allow time to heal without people wondering where I am. I'm going with the incision method and keeping a tapered crease. My eyes are very temperamental; one day they'll have a beautiful crease, and then other days it'll be nothing. I can rub my eyes and set a crease in, but it'll eventually fall out in a few hours. I think that since people have seen me with the crease, it won't be too crazy of a transformation. I never thought about doing this until last year, and after doing a lot of research I figure it'll be worth it.. I wonder if it's the LA effect of need to change something, but whatever it is I'm excited and embracing it!

Ok girls, so I've been oppose to getting any work done on my face but I've been thinking a lot lately about my eyes. I have fatty eyelids that covers my eyes and even though I have double eyelids, you can see it because it's cover by the fat folds. No, it's not baby fat, lol. Anyway, I don't want to fly out to Korea to do the surgery so am thinking about someplace in the good old USA. Now I'm just starting my research but I'm curious what kind of eye surgery there are? I've read back a few pages and there are terms like non-incision, incision, etc types. Are there different types of eye surgery???? Anyone who has done there's in the LA area with a blog mind PMing me their website or something? I'm bases in the Northwest so I can't just walk into an LA clinic for a consultation. And where I live, I can't even find a decent Korean restaurant let alone eye surgery place. Thanks in advance !

Hi everyone! I am planning to get incisional double eyelid surgery in Korea in January 2016. Do you know any good clinics based in Seoul that others have had good results from?

I think I have hidden double lids. They aren't monolid nor are they double lids and are kind of a mash between the two haha. So if I raise my eyebrows, it looks like I have a double lid but when I relax my face, it looks like a monolid. I'm planning to get the surgery done in korea in early January so it will be winter there at the time. I'm thinking of going to Grand plastic surgery.

I think I might have the same eyes as you! I have fatty eyelids but if I raise my eyebrows, it looks like I have double eyelids but when i relax my face, I look like I have a monolid? I'm not too sure how to explain haha. I saw that video earlier by lazybumtot beauty and she had incisional double eyelid surgery in LA. So maybe you can check out her blog or youtube, she has a lot of good information on it about the procedure. 

With regards to incisional, non-incisional surgery; incisional is the cutting method, so if you have a lot of fat on your eyelid, they will cut the eyelid and take out the fats and sew it back. I;m not too sure about non-incisional because I've mostly done research about incisional because that is the procedure that I have been recommended to get but at the top of my head, non-incisional is where they sew the eyelid to create the line and it works well for people with thin eyelids. I hope that helps! Good luck dear xx
