Double Eyelid Surgery Thread

Recommended Posts

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

The most important limitation for me was - do not go to the sauna for at least 1 month, but I got my eyes job done, so it was fine for me. I also didn't do any exercises, because it was prohibited to strain due to pressure on eyes. I think I handle very well

Guys... I finally did it!! I've been looking on Soompi since I was 14 yeras old and just gathering research and drooling over the before and after photos. Now, as a 25 year old....I finally did it!

 

I never thought this day would come because I have hidden lids so my eyes aren't particularly too small but I have a break from work and decided to treat myself since I got a new job.

 

= RESEARCH = 

 

I wanted to go to Korea but knew that wouldn't be an option for me. So I started looking in LA (where I'm from). I reached out to a Dr Charles Kahng (in Buena Park) and the day of my consultation, I was only able to meet with an assistant. I was a bit disappointed because I thought I would be able to meet with him! I was quoted 2,500 for non-incisional and incisional. I want to do the suture (non-cutting method) because I am afraid of scarring and needed quick recovery.

 

I also looked into another doctor in Newport Beach, she quoted me 3,500...so I couldn't afford that. So, I ended up booking a meeting with Dr. Andrew Choi from VIP in ktown! The place looks shady, but everyone was super friendly and nice. I met with this woman (by now, i realized that meeting with a doctor would be hard) and she was a hard seller. She told me the differences, pros and cons, etc.  She also said that when dealing with a doctor, its good to have a surgeon who has done a lot of cases because they learn by experience... and Dr. Choi has done 20,000! 

 

I did my research so I knew what I wanted. Then she said that normally a consultation with Dr. Choi would cost $100 but she can see if he's in the office so we were able to meet him! Meeting him was great, he spent like 30 minutes with us and even answered questions for my friend (who had done eyelid surgery with another doctor and can't close her eyes when she sleeps!). He was super friendly, drew pictures for her to show us how our eyes work and what he would be doing, etc so I felt very confident after meeting with him.

 

I was quoted $2500, but got a 10% discount because I booked the day of! I also needed EPI, but at an additional $1,500 I couldn't afford it.

 

= DAY OF SURGERY (TODAY!!!) = 

 

I was so nervous. I had my boyfriend take me, my appointment was 11 and he was actually doing surgery on someone else (which shows me that he is popular and well known) and there was also another girl in the waiting room with glasses. So, I couldn't go in until 11:30? 

 

Dr. Choi saw me very briefly since we had spoken before and he knew what I wanted. It was seriously only 10 minutes (wish it were longer but I didn't have questions since I've done my research). I told him I wanted a small crease and at first he did a 8 mm, then i wanted it lower and we settled on a 7 mm. 

 

I was taken into a changing room, changed my clothes really quickly with a nice but straight to the point nurse (heh). Then as I was laying on the table, I told him I wanted a tapered crease. He said that if I did a parallel crease it would look better and bigger but I insisted on a tapered because I like the way it looks. So, he did a crease of 6.5mm tapered on me! 

 

The nurse then inserted an IV in me which didn't hurt and trust me, I'm scared of needles. Dr. Choi then started measuring my eyelids which took about 30 minutes, I appreciate him taking his time and I saw that he kept on erasing it and then starting over. 

 

Then he put on oxygen and told me that I should start feeling sleepy, but I didn't feel sleepy! I kept on talking to him and telling them that soompi raves about him and that he should go on and read his reviews, but I didn't realize he was already working on my eyes. Then I "woke up" (so I fell asleep... I hope) and I asked the nurse if I was done and she says, Yes I was!

 

So, that was just a few hours ago and now I'm at home resting. Eyes are swollen and I'm sticking to a diet of no salt and lots of veggies. If there are any typos or odd sentences... its cause my eyes are SWOLLEN!

Hi Everyone!! Phew! I remember following this thread 10 years ago.

 

I finally made the moves to get double eyelid surgery in NYC because I live here. I just didn’t want to go to Korea by myself with the language barrier. I’m 25 now and I’ve been thinking about this for a very, very long time. I had my procedure done today and my eyes are currently like swollen sausages. I’ll be doing a before and after photos in the next few months if anyone is interested!! 

 

I had blepharoplasty + epicanthoplasty (double eyelid and inner fold cut). The price was $4,500. The epi was a last minute decision. Literally 5 minutes before the surgery because I found out my creases will not be symmetrical. One would be parallel and the other would be tapered. I decided to go with it and it was $1,000 more. I wasn’t going to mull over the money because I wanted this done, no matter how much it costed, I wanted to be happy with my outcome. On a side note, I was wondering if the price was a normal range in the states and in Korea? I figured $4,500 was reasonable. It would’ve costed about the same if I bought the plane ticket to Korea, the procedure itself, and getting an Airbnb. What is everyone’s thoughts?

 

The anesthesia really was the most painful part but honestly, if you’ve ever gotten laser hair removal...this was nothing. Although...when he was cutting the corners of my eye, there wasn’t enough anesthesia for my left eye and I felt the pain of the stitches. They had to give me another shot...I almost had a heart attack!! I don’t want to talk about the gory stuff but the whole procedure took about 1hr 15 minutes. I was awake the entire time and they had classical music playing in the background. Dr. Kwak checked in on me every no and then to make sure I was okay. (Thank god I didn’t have to get an IV. It’s silly, but I hate the feeling of having a needle stuck in me). They prescribed me a Xanax to calm my nerves. I took it because I knew I was going to be a worry wart. 

 

From the pre-op information I’ve gathered, I plan on doing everything 10x more. I want to be super careful so that I can have a speedy recovery. My diet will will consist of: mashed pumpkins, steamed chicken breast, spinach, mushroom, broccoli and fruit. I plan on staying away from salt, sugar, alcohol, dairy and anything dark (seaweed, soy sauce etc). I’ll have to wear sunglasses and a hat for the next few months since direct sunlight will darken the scar.no makeup or anyhing harsh around my eyes even if they wound is closed. I also plan on sleeping on my wedge for at least three weeks since it keeps me elevated at 75 degrees.

Sorry for the late reply...work has been busy busy!

 

So, my eyes are all healed up (healed after a week) and look amazing! Actually, when I met with my best friends - the first they asked me was if I did my makeup differently because I looked nice. I didn't tell them till later on that I did my surgery.

 

As for my eyes, they are much smaller now...I should have listened to Dr. Choi but I don't regret my decision actually because they look so natural and no one knows I got them done. I actually get facials all the time and eyelash lift and no one knew that I got mine done! There is no scar at all. 

 

I think I look better with my double eyelids - though my eyes aren't that much bigger (since I had hidden folds), my makeup shows up better and therefore, I look nicer.

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

Hey, girls I have been reading the posts on here for a while and I have finally made a decision to have my eye surgery in Korea. 

I got my double eyelid surgery 3 months ago and I am starting to see very good results so far!

 

First 2 week was very difficult, My eyes were ugly and the staff from hospital kept telling me it will get more beautiful and natural in few months. So I waited... and they were right! They became even and very natural looking once bruising and swelling went down. It took me  a month for them to look very 'presentable'. Now my eyes look 100% natural.

 

I did my surgery at View. I consulted both Regen and View that my friends recommended me to. They were also very nearby so I was able to consult at both places very easily. I think the name of the doctor was Dr. Kim Jong Min? He told me I had a ptosis on my eyes that needed to be corrected in order for me to open my eyes wider.

 

On the surgery day, they made me wear surgery gown and wash my wash before going up to the surgery room. I met with Dr. Kim again at the office and he drew lines on my eyes. Then i was taken up to the surgery room and I was put under twilight anesthesia. 

 

After I woke up, I was taken to the recovery room. After like an hour, they said I can get changed and go back to my room. 

 

My next appointment was 3 days later, I went and got some taping taken off and they cleaned up my eyes for me. I was not supposed to get water on it, so i avoided washing my face... It was very gross and oily. After they did some cleaning, they put some kind of ointment. 

I also did like some sort of deswelling laser session. I just laid down on a bed with this red light on my face. It was relaxing, so i feel asleep during this.

 

After few more days later I went back again to take out the stitches. It stung a bit but not really that painful. I did the red light thing again and left the hospital.

 

It was an overall great experience. Both clinics had fluent English speakers I had no problem with communication. If you are interested in getting plastic surgery in Korea. You can send me a message or you can just contact clinics by yourself.

I just had epi and non incisional double eyelid surgery. This was decided after my consultstion, as I did not have much fat on my eyelids. I had local anaesthesia and I was in severe pain the entire time!!! I honestly felt like I was being tortured. I spoke up and said I was in pain when he was cutting so he gave me more local shots. However it was still extremely painful...just wondering if anyone else experienced this much pain? What did I just go through? This was in korea by the way.
