 Different types of Eyelid Surgery


01.  Non-incision Double eyelid

Natural-looking, well-defined double eyelid folds can be made without incision on the thin eyelid that has not a large amount of fat. This procedure is relatively simple using a 1- to 2-mm suture. Even though you close your eyes, no trace of surgery is found on the upper eyelid.

02.  Partial incision Double eyelid

As a combination of non-incision and incision method, this procedure has strengths of the two techniques. The shape and length of incision is adjusted depending on the eyelid conditions of individual patient, and this surgery is effective for muscle resection, under-eye fat removal and correction of slight ptosis. This partial incisional technique makes the outer double eyelid fold distinctive and inner fold softer, and it produces a good result to young women.

 03.  Incision Double eyelid

The procedure uses an incision along the desired double eyelid fold. Orbicular muscle of eye is partially resected and connected to skin or muscle (tarsal plate or levator palpebrae superioris muscle) using suture thread, and consequently double eyelid folds and well-defined eye shape were made. April 31 Plastic Surgery Clinic applies dynamic double eyelid surgery technique that produces natural look and leaves an invisible scar on the upper eyelid.

It is good to have double eyelid surgery in any clinic?

The successful double eyelid surgery depends on the surgical technique and aesthetic view of an experienced surgeon. At April 31 Plastic Surgery Clinic, Dr. Won Suk Oh, who has profound clinical experience and accumulated surgical know-how, performs all eyelid surgery including buried suture double eyelid surgery.

Non-Incision Method Leaving No Mark on Upper Eyelid


 02.  Partial incision Double eyelid

Partial incision is made in a 1-to 2-point size depending on the conditions of individual patient. 



 03. Incision Double eyelid

Incisional method takes a longer time to settle than buried suture method and is likely to leave a scar on the upper eyelid. However, the new Dynamic Double Eyelid Surgery reduces recovery period and surgery scar, overcoming the weaknesses of incisional method.


Difference between Regular Incisional Method vs Dynamic Technique


Regular Incisional Method – Static Double Eyelid Surgery

Double eyelid folds made through regular incisional method show clear, large surgery scars, and excessive swelling on the upper eyelid is accompanied resulting in an artificial look.

Dynamic Technique- Dynamic Double Eyelid Surgery

Using the principle of how natural double eyelid folds are formed, this procedure ties micro-muscles and skin, and produces natural-looking double eyelid folds and invisible scar while using an incision.
