What Is Double Eyelid Surgery?

Double Eyelid Surgery, also known as upper blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is used for enhancing the eye by creating an upper eyelid crease or defining it for those with a faint crease. 


Double Eyelid Surgery is one of the most sought-after surgical procedures at Dream Singapore. Many believe that double eyelids look more attractive and add to an individual’s facial features. The procedure is simple and takes 20 minutes to help accentuate the shape of the eye, making them look more defined, bigger, and awake. 

Types of Double Eyelid Surgery

At Dream Plastic Surgery Singapore, double eyelid surgery can be done using two different techniques. Individuals can choose between the non-incisional double eyelid surgery or incisional double eyelid surgery. 

Non-incisional Double Eyelid Surgery

Our popular Dual Burial method is a non-incisional, suture technique for creating double eyelids. Devised in Korea after thorough testing, this non-incisional double eyelid surgery technique is unique to Dream and has been used successfully in thousands of cases so far. It reduces the risk of losing the crease altogether, which is commonly associated with traditional non-incisional techniques.

Another unique advantage of our proprietary surgical procedure is that it uses only a single suture for creating double eyelids. This method does not pin down the skin with several knots across the eyelid because it is hard to standardize the tension created by each knot, and uneven tension may result in the appearance of an uneven crease.


Instead, a single suture weaves through the eyelid skin before ending with just a single knot. As a result, tension created across various points of the eyelid can be distributed evenly. There are almost no uneven indentations after the procedure and more natural double eyelid results can be realized.

Incisional Double Eyelid Surgery

It is a classic technique for creating well-defined and permanent double eyelid crease. This technique is suitable for all kinds of eyelids. It requires an incision on top of the eyelid from where the surgeon can remove any excessive fat while also getting rid of any lose skin at the same time. When there is no extra skin or fat left after the procedure, the skin is stitched onto the muscles more firmly. As a result, more defined, long lasting, and permanent eyelid crease is created with this method.

Which Double Eyelid Surgery Technique Is Best For You

Depending on the patient’s concern and the results expected, surgeons can recommend non-incisional double eyelid surgery (suture method) or incisional double eyelid surgery.
