More About Incisional Double Eyelid Surgery

This method which is also known as incisional upper blepharoplasty utilises an incision along the double eyelid lines, removing drooped or excessive skin, fat, and muscle. Hollowed skin and fat as well as heavy and thick muscles can be trimmed off to create slim double eyelids.

The appropriate variation of the incisional blepharoplasty is determined with reference to eye size, eyelid tissue status, the presence and severity of blepharoptosis, and the patient's expectations. Pre-operative counselling procedures are necessary to help decide if this method is suitable based on the following:

  • If a double eyelid line is not made well with a simple tool that holds it temporarily.
  • If there is too much excess skin
  • If scars are severe after any previous surgery with the incision method or if the double eyelids are too high
  • If the droopy eyelid condition (blepharoptosis) is severe
Surgery takes about 1-2 hours, and all seams are removed between four and five days after the procedure. Swelling resulting from an incisional blepharoplasty requires more time to subside than the burial method, but patients may resume their regular activities after around five to seven days. Since the muscles are not excessively removed, the scars from the incision will not leave a hollow line. Also, a very thin suture is used so the scar is barely noticeable. On closed eyes, they appear naturally as if they were fine wrinkles on a forehead. This method is conducted mainly for people with thicker or heavier eyelids.

  • Natural, beautiful & clean lines
  • Clear eyes
  • Natural appearance without any scars
  • Tight control after surgery

Surgical Method

There are many variations of incisional blepharoplasty, such as creating synechia (adhesion) with an eye muscle or with an eyelid plate. Our surgeon arranges the original eyelid tissue anatomically and utilises both the eyelid muscle and plate, combining two eyelid surgery methods for more natural results.
  1. Before surgery
  1. Incise the excessive skin, orbicular muscle of eyes, and fat according to the double eyelid line and arrange the drooping septum and eyelid muscle.
  1. Natural double eyelid line created.
  1. Low scar visibility after surgery.
