Hello everyone!

I have been following this thread for years in hopes that I would finally get double eyelid surgery and it came true! I wanted to share my experience with everyone because I know how much it helped me reading everyones' experiences so here it goes!

Prep

I decided to go with Docfinderkorea because their services were free and since I was a foreigner travelling to Korea for the very first time, having their assistance would sound like the best way to go. Despite some people having some bad reviews about docfinder, I must say that my personal experience was very pleasant. I started emailing them December 2015 in preparation for a trip in June 2016. Docfinder replied really fast taking 2 days at the most to reply to my emails.  Jennifer was the lady I communicated with through emails and once I sent in my pictures she gave me the choices banobagi, regen, da, jw, and id. Banobagi(first) and Regen(second) were my top choices. But after looking at the quotes, Regen was cheaper, and I knew Regen was a decent clinic so I informed her of my choice. Few months later, I was told Regen's management wasn't the best, with nurses leaving and such therefore, I switched to Banobagi, although it was definitely pricier, cosmetic surgery shouldn't be something to be cheap about. I'd definitely recommend communicating with Docfinder months before a planned trip.

Arriving in Korea

Finally!!!! After months of planning my wish was finally coming true! I was picked up by a driver which I scheduled with the road manager Shin and the driver took us to the accommodation. I was actually quite skeptical whether I would actually get picked up by a driver, but I was so relived that docfinder was legit! My surgery and consultation was first thing in the morning the next day so I had to fast 4 hours prior to the operation. I met up with Anna from docfinder who would assist me with the whole surgery process. She was great! Super friendly and helpful. We took a taxi to banobagi, and luckily it wasn't too busy. Filled out forms, took pictures and had the consultation. All the ladies at the clinic were super nice and helpful and it made me feel comfortable. I met with Dr. Lee Hyun Taek to do the final review and he said that I would need full incisional with ptosis correction. Reason being is that my eyelids were sagging because I used double eyelid tape prior. The operation was definitely not cheap (4.25 mil won) but I knew that he would do a good job. The ladies at banobagi would always make sure I was able to speak and make sure it was the type of fold I wanted and what I was expecting as an outcome. So communication was no problem and I was not rushed at all.

Surgery

Near the end of consultation, they called someone to make sure the operation room was prepared for me. I was escorted by a girl named Jessie who would be with me through the whole surgery ( or at least I think so?? She was there when I went in and woke up). I had to change into my robe, wash my mouth and face, then got a blast of air for sterilization before finally entering the operating room. Throughout the whole time I was very relaxed. Jessie informed me of everything they were doing from strapping me to the bed, to inserting the IV and sedation. All I remember was a warm towel? on my face and soon enough I was dozing off. I was actually anticipating some pain when they put the local anesthesia because some have said it hurts a lot but I actually had no clue when that happened... Dr. Lee came in and I could feel him drawing on my eyes. I could also feel the cutting and stitching but there wasn't any terrible pain. I believe the surgery lasted about 1 hour and once I woke up, Jessie brought me to a room to rest a bit and after that I was sent to the changing room and went back to the lobby to see my dad and sister. Anna went out to get me my medicine and ointment. Surprisingly, I was quite lively after the surgery and I felt no pain. I was given a bag with and ice pack and hydrogen peroxide to clean my stitches. Overall, I did not experience any pain during and after the surgery.

Recovery/Stitch Removal 

While recovering, I was told to stay away from salty and spicy foods along with seafood. I iced my eyes and walked around a lot to reduce swelling. At first I felt a little self conscious walking around with puffy stitched eyes, but you'll soon realize there are many people in the same situation, so it's nothing to worry about. The swelling went down quickly the first few days post op, but have slowed down after stitch removal.
 

Anna came to meet me once again to remove the stitches which was 9 days post op. Firstly, I was sent in a room for laser deswelling treatment, in which I just lay down for 20 minutes under an incredibly bright light. Not exactly sure how it really helped with deswelling but ok... Before taking out the stitches, Dr. Lee came to check on my eyes asking me to open and close. Stitch removal was also pretty painless, just little pokes and that's it. The day I was there was extremely busy with workers running all over the place but it was nice to see my consultant visit me and ask me how I liked my eyes and also my translator who was making sure I did everything. Also a bonus was that theres a tax refund! Anna was pretty busy juggling other clients at the clinic but she still managed to meet up with me at the end offering a ride somewhere. 

Overall

I must say my trip to Korea was great and went smoothly because of docfinder. Having the driver transport us to and from the airport was definitely a plus because airport limos are pricey. Anna was great helper, and Shin was quick to reply. As of right now I am 18 days post op and I am really happy with the way it is healing. The scars aren't too prominent considering that I did full incisional and swelling is going down slowly but surely! I would definitely recommend docfinder to those who are unfamiliar with the cosmetic surgery process and korea in general. If anyone has any questions I'd be glad to help!

 

 

I'll take a trip to Korea in MAR to get a eye surgery. May I ask how much is the Regen's cost they suggested ? My friend has done eye surgery in Regen. I wanna make my eyes same as her...I need to compare the cost what I know.

Hi everyone,

thought I'd share my double eyelid consultation experience because the thread helped me decide on which clinics to go to and I hope my post will help some of you as well.

I am currently in Korea and my goal is to have double eyelid surgery, I naturally have a fold already in both eyes but it's hidden under some skin. Normally my eyes feel heavy and I have to use my forehead muscles to lift my eyes so that it looks nicer in pictures. This has resulted in early lines forming on my forehead. However I do not have ptosis, when I open my eyes my eyelid naturally can clear the iris (coloured part of the eye) and my inner corners are already quite pointy and the inner canthus is quite exposed. So I don't need ptosis correction or epicanthalplasty. 

I went to see 4 clinics: teuim, banobagi, regen and jk.

-teuim: Dr kwon is an eye specialist he does nothing else, which is why I was keen to see him first. His clinic is a smaller than the others but the staff were all quite friendly. He seemed knowledgable and confident. He told me I needed to have full incisional + epi. The thing is he will want to do epi on EVERYONE because he's aesthetic style is for the eye to be quite horizontal (inner corner same height as outer corner) with a outfold, more Caucasian like. I asked if it's possible I don't do epi since my eyes were already so open on the inner corners and he said yes. He did say the higher the crease you want the more swelling you will have and the longer recovery time. Full incision surgery means a recovery time of 6-12 months before you look natural and even then when you close your eyes there might be a pink line I have been told. Price: 3.3 mil won NOT INC 10%tax, AFTER heavy negotiation for incisional+epi. A lot of foreign patients here.

Banobagi: the day I went the clinic was super busy, the girls there were a bit rude and rushed us in and out and we waited a long time to speak to the recepionist then a long time to see the pre-consultant and then at last the doctor Dr Lee ( one of the founders) he spent very little time with me, I think he was so busy he was rushing off to be somewhere else. He recommended incisional but said I could also have the non incisional dual suture burial method ( supposed to last longer than traditional suture burial method but chance of coming undone is still 10-20% can also remove some fat pad through the 5 holes ) I did notice the girls that worked there most had very unnatural looking eyelid folds, so not sure about his style. Price was 1.6mil for non incisional around 1.7 mil incisional INC TAX. They were able to give me more discount (20%) because I came alone and not with any services. A lot of foreign patients here. 

Regen: Dr Kim is one of the founders and he was quite nice, seemed confident and knowledgable he recommended I do partial incision ( which is 4 holes and on the last one a 2 mm incision through which fat can be removed) he seemed confident I did not need the full incision and can achieve good results with partial. He seemed to think the chance of loosening is low as well. His office had a lot of local patients. Price was 1.7mil won INC tax after heavy negotiation because I wanted them to match another clinic. 

Jk: I saw Dr Paik, the only female surgeon so far. She recommended I do partial incision as well. No need for full incisional because I'm young, most people need full incision later in life anyway because the skin will start to droop more she said. The clinic is super opulent and well renovated even the whole building is a gold colour. The service was a little lacking the girl that translated for me always cut me off and didn't answer some of my questions. Price was 1.7mil won 

note: don't worry about language barrier, Dr kwon speaks reasonable English, All the others didn't speak English but all had good English or Chinese translators there. If you don't use a service to take you there surgery price will be a lot cheaper 

I decided to have partial incision with Regen, I think I'm a bit borderline between full incisional and partial, most people in this thread have had full but the recovery time is so long and may scar so I'm a bit put off by it. Will let you know how it goes.

I thought I shared my experience that my wife went through in Bangkok for her Thread lift.  When my wife want a Thread lift (not sure why as I find her still as young as before) I google for one in Singapore.  But the price is so expensive that I started to google for other countries.  South Korea came to mind again (my wife did some surgeries with BK and it cost $35,000!!!!!) so I am turn off again thinking of the price.  Malaysia came to mind but not so confident about it and finally settle for Thailand as we can have R&R and surgery at the same time.  Not to mentioned that it cost only 1/3 or less than Singapore!

We settle on Naravee Clinic in Bangkok.  She got her Thread lift on a package price of B29,000 ($1,060 singapore dollars) for a total of 10 threads + 2 (the two threads were given free as we did not bring enough cash).

Dr. Ronachai Komthong is certified in UK, Singapore, Thailand and USA so that made us very confident about him.  Found out that he is a Colombo Plan Scholar who was trained in Singapore and another Scholarship to USA.

You can read more about them in their website.

We found the doctor to be very professional and very caring.  He is not the rush rush type unlike in South Korea where they treat every patient as a money making machine.  I dislike that!

First the consultation (almost 30 minutes) to explain all that need to be explain and questions and answer time.  You will be charged B600 only if you do not wish to continued with the surgery. And the charges will be waive if you continue with the surgery.

To cut the story short, my wife came back looking younger and more happy now....me? Well.....if you can keep your wife happy, better do it. Ha Ha Ha.....

For those who need help regarding plastic surgery (we been to both South Korea and Thailand now) drop me a email.  I most happy to help - twinkle9099@yahoo.com

Cheers!

Hi all!

I'm a medical student doing a research study as part of a curricular requirement, and my project is looking at the motivations and expectations for Asian blepharoplasty ("double eyelid surgery"). If you are are at least 18 years old, of Asian descent, and have ever considered or gotten Asian bleph, we would love your input! The survey takes less than 5 minutes, and you have a chance to win a $20 Amazon gift card.

Link: https://jhmi.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9sFMD6nvndJ4c4d

MINI Q&A

  • Why study this? Can't people just get whatever cosmetic procedures they want? Yes! By conducting this study, we are merely trying to understand motivations and behavior. In no way are we trying to dissuade individuals from getting any sort of procedure, unless the results indicate a concerning pattern that warrants attention from the medical community. Our lab is hoping to understand patient motivations for elective procedures to improve surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction.

  • We already have a tool measuring cosmetic procedure outcomes, don't we? Yeah! In 2016, the FACE-Q Eye Module was evaluated in a publication with JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery; however, looking at the study population, 70-80% of the participants used to validate the FACE-Q are Caucasian, so it remains to be seen if this outcomes tool could be used in a more general population. (i.e. does the FACE-Q even capture the concerns and expectations that may be uniquely associated with Asian eyelid surgery?)

  • Is your survey in any other language? I know someone, but they wouldn't be able to take the survey in English. We are trying to resolve this issue! If you know of any reasonably-priced translation services, please reply to this comment by quoting or PM me!

Any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask via comment or PM! I have no conflicts of interest to disclose. This account was created solely to recruit survey participants, but we are happy to address comments or concerns.

I've been wanting to get it done forever! I heard in Korea they have these sites for medical tourism so I've been going through them. I think it would be a safer way to get it done that way I know I'm going to a clinic that is respectable and wont end up with side effects!

Speedy Recovery From Eyelid Surgery - Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon and Follow Instructions

 

The most important thing you can do to have the fastest and best possible recovery from eyelid surgery is to select the right plastic surgeon to perform your procedure, and then carefully follow the instructions your surgeon provides. 
Having a healthy diet, being well hydrated and well-rested will help with your recovery. 

Secondly what my doctor suggest to me was ...
"Hello! Thank you for your question! The recommendations for the use of these homeopathic medications are surgeon preference. I typically suggest the use of Arnica Montana to decrease swelling and bruising. It is an herbal medication that is propagated from the seeds of an herb. I, as well as my patients, have seen some benefit with the treatment in the postoperative period. Although there is little evidence to its effectiveness, I believe there is some benefit, and no harm. I recommend 4-5 tablets under the tongue 4x/day for 3-5 days prior and 5-7 days after the procedure. Hope that this helps! Best wishes!"

Hi all 

I am getting eyelid surgery sometime in January 2018 in Korea . I graduated college and got myself a full time job. I figured I am at a good stage in life to do this.

Since it sucks to do this stuff alone, I was wondering if anyone else is seriously considering this and is going alone like me. I was thinking it would be nice to connect so we could both have a friend during the week we will be in Korea . :) 

And of course I'll update my whole experience here!

One of my Korean classmates had some things fixed on her face and this is one of them...she said it hurts but the pain is nothing compared to other surgeries she did with her face eg. Rhinoplasty.

Hey all, I'm looking to get revision eyelid surgery early next year. I had my eyelid surgery more than 6 years ago, but my crease was made too large and they still have that "swollen" look.

 

I'm considering either Teuim or Dream? Any thoughts on either of them? Thank you.

 

Is there anyone "good" in the LA area?

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. However, since I'm not 20 any longer and skin is loosing its elasticity and I lost some kgs recently, my eyes became like a bulldog, skin thinner and wrinkles sharper. I was planning a trip to Seoul in November and decided to visit several ps clinics. Didn't even try to search local ones, as I knew Seoul is the capital for plastic surgeries and I wanted a perfect result. After some time of searching and monitoring different forums and blogs, finally stopped my decision on 3 clinics (I like when have several options in advance). So I sent them my pics, got replies, decided to meet all doctors in real and set 3 different appointments. When I arrived Seoul i had my carry on with me and went straight to gangnam station area since the hospitals were there. The first was Cinderella plastic surgery, the same atmosphere as in previous clinics, but the personnel wasn't as polite, even though the doctor was quite kind and friendly. This place was very close to the station. The second place was Wonjin. The place was very nice and the staff looked very professional. There was also soo many surgeon in the place. But for consultation the doctor didn't seem very interested in my questions and seemed very busy. It just felt a bit worrisome for me. Originally I wanted to meet their famous chief surgeon but i don't think it would happen. After the consulting I felt unsure bout the place. The last was Regen. I think it was at the end of gangnam station. There was another station in front of regen but i don't remember it. Regen was just as big as wonjin so i assume then maybe their surgeons will be busy like them. I liked everything about the clinic, worker and the doctor, he answered all my questions, didn't economize his time and was quite listening well. Also before meeting the surgeon i asked the consult manager if I can meet the chief surgeon for the eye surgery and was told all foreigner get surgery by the chief surgeon. Also the surgeon I met has his face on the website and he look older so I believe he was more experienced. One thing I didn't like was i had to wait a long time for my consultation even tho i make appointment. they said the doctor was in surgery so i waited. i was kind of angry but they gave me a really long consultation too so i release my stress. So, I made my choice on Regen. They asked me to make a 10% deposit if I want to schedule time for surgery but since they have time the next day which was Tuesday, i just paid 100% all of it and went back the next day. The next day i walk to regen. I meet them at the office and got ready. I told them I would like botox on my face and calf and they say I can get shot right after surgery for my eyes. After i change clothes and wash face i went to surgery room and workers already have everything ready and the surgeon drew lines on my face. After he draw he said he will apply local anesthetic. I did not feel anything just tired. I was awake whole time. I remember he ask me to open and close eye few times to see changes. After surgery I went to recovery room. I tried to open my eyes, but couldn't. Tried to touch them, then the assistant stopped my hands and put something cold on my eyes (reminded me cold silicone). In the next couple of hours the nurse took off the band from my eyes and I returned to the hotel. The next 3 days were uncomfortable. I went back on 3rd day to remove stitches and they put some cream on my eyelid. I went back to Hong Kong the next day. Now it's almost 2 months after I got my eyes job done. No regrets, no pain, already can put my make up on. Can take a look at my pics. https://imgur.com/a/EaDQx

I went back on 3rd day to remove stitches and they put some cream on my eyelid. I went back to Hong Kong the next day. Now it's almost 2 months after I got my eyes job done. No regrets, no pain, already can put my make up on. Can take a look at my pics. https://imgur.com/a/EaDQx

 

You look a lot younger now. I like he way your eyes are. I wish the skin above my eyes were as thin as yours. Who did your surgery at Regen?

That is great work. I've been wanting to put my hair up more often but I am 40 and have a lot of wrinkles on my forehead. Was botox painful for you?
