Korea's Leading Experts in Double Eyelid & Ptosis Correction Surgery

  • Completion of bigger and wider shape of eyes
  • Removal of drooping & puffy eyelids

We are Committed to Provide the Highest Quality

Double eyelid surgery creates a natural crease in the eyelid which appears when the eyes are open. We are committed to provide the highest quality eyelid surgery procedures to our patients. Our skilled and experienced surgeons carry out a range of surgeries and treatments at our state-of-the-art facility, which has one of the highest satisfaction rates in South Korea.

We have a number of different eyelid surgeries available at the clinic and will discuss these in depth with you at your initial consultation appointment. Fundamentally, there are two approaches:

1. Permanent Non-incisional Double Eyelid Surgery

1. Permanent
Non-incisional
Double Eyelid Surgery

The non-incisional method creates a permanent natural crease without any incision. The procedure sees 5-6 micro holes (1-2mm) made in the upper eyelids which are then connected to the eye-opening muscle (levator). The operation is only 30 minutes and aids fast recovery. It is suitable for:

Who can benefit?

1. People with thin eyelids with little droopiness or fat.

2. People looking for a fast recovery

3. Males who want larger looking eyes without visible double lids.

Duration:
30 minutes

Incision: No incision

Hospitalization: None

Stitch removal: 2 days

Recovery period: 5 days

Anesthesia: Local assisted with sedation

STEP 1

Consultation with the plastic surgeon to decide which double eyelid method is suitable

STEP 2

5-6 Microholes in size of 1-2 mm are made

STEP 3

30-minute procedure under local anesthetic where the upper eyelids are connected to the eye opening levator muscle, with the double knot stitching technique

STEP 4

Creation of permanent and natural double eyelids  

2. Incisional Double Eyelid Surgery

The incisional method is a versatile surgical method that can remove fat and control various tissues to achieve a permanent double fold crease. This method uses a full incision on the eyelid and manipulates the skin, fat, and muscle to create a natural, but defined crease.

Who can benefit?

1. People who have thick eyelids with excess fat or puffiness

2. People with asymmetric eyelids

3. People looking for a revision

Duration:  1 Hour

Incision: 
Along the crease of eyes

Hospitalization: None

Stitch removal: 7 days

Recovery period: 7 days

Anesthesia: Local assisted with sedation

In both cases of eyelid surgeries, the double eyelid surgery is carried out on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. Suture removal can happen in less than a week and recovery times are quick, swelling will reduce within a few days and most patients are back to normal activities within a couple of weeks.

Ptosis Correction Surgery

Ptosis refers to the drooping of the upper eyelids. People with ptosis often have difficulty opening their eyes completely. Ptosis is caused by a weakened eye opening levator or Müller’s muscle, which is the main eye opening levator muscle. To compensate, people suffering from ptosis often unconsciously lift their eyebrows or forehead in an effort to raise the drooping eyelids. In the case of ptosis, a double eyelid surgery alone will worsen the condition and cause the crease to become easily loosened. However, ptosis correction will strengthen the eye opening levator muscles and create a natural crease to make the eyes open easily.

FacePlus offers a specialist ptosis correction surgery performed at our clinic which not only makes the eyes bigger and brighter, but also longer. Longer eyes usually need canthoplasty to lengthen inner and outer corners, and most other clinics perform ptosis correction only for vertical correction but our surgery will increase horizontal size too.

Who can benefit?

1. People with sleepy-looking eyes or who have a tired appearance

2. People who have asymmetric eyelids (droopiness or eyes crease height).

3. People with ptosis symptoms
* People with severe ptosis must consider only doing the incisional method.

3. Non-incisional Ptosis Surgery

This method is recommended for people with minimal to moderate ptosis with relatively thin upper eyelids. It is also highly recommended for males who wish to have bigger eyes but don’t want to have visible double eyelids. It can be performed alone or in conjunction with double knot non-incisional double eyelid surgery to create a natural crease without any scarring. It ties the levator and Müller’s muscle to the interior skin at several points to shorten the muscles.

Upper eyelid Condition Checklist / Non Incisional:

1. Appearance: Thin

2. Amount of fat: Less

3. Skin droopiness: Moderate

4. Ptosis: Moderate

Duration:  1 Hour

Incision: 
No Incision

Hospitalization: None

Stitch removal: 2 days

Recovery period: 5 days

Anesthesia: Local assisted with sedation

Step 4

Step 5
Eye opening muscles are strenghtened

Step 6
Upper eyelids are connected to levator muscle with double knot technique (connecting in and out of upper eyelids) to create permanent eyelids

Step 7
Permanent and natural double eyelids are made. Eyes are not only bigger but also horizontally wider just by having ptosis correction without eye corners lengthening (canthoplasthy)

4. Incisional Ptosis Surgery

This second method is recommended for people with puffy and droopy upper eyelid skin with severe ptosis with relatively thick upper eyelids. Similar to an incisional double eyelid surgery, a full incision is performed to tighten the eye opening levator muscle. The results are bigger, brighter eyes with more length – all without the need for canthoplasty.
