The misunderstanding about incisional double eyelid surgery

The misunderstanding about incisional double eyelid surgery which makes you miss the chance to have beautiful eyes
 

Generally, double eyelid surgery is divided into two procedures including removing and not removing the excess skin such as mini incision and suture methods. Both are different advantages. At Lovely Eye and Skin Clinic by dr. Roungkaw, we do both methods by our special techniques. Not only double eyelid surgery, we also do lower blepharoplasty, upper blepharoplasty with fat transfer, ptosis correction, blepharoplasty revision and ectropion correction by the specialized ophthalmologists. 

We solve the problems depending on personal factors. One of the the most problems is the excess eyelids which cover eyes. Also the clinic is famous for epicanthoplasty. We're specialized in double eyelid surgery with removing the excess skin and epicanthoplasty. However, these techniques must operated by the specialized ophthalmologists to get the best result. Some clinics cannot do double eyelid surgery with removing the excess skin and are likely to discredit this method. This causes hesitation among those who are interested in double eyelid surgery. So we will enlighten your doubts. 

Double eyelid surgery with removing the excess skin is suitable for Asian people because they have normally Orbiculasis Oculi which is found both teenagers and elderly. For those who don't have the excess can be done double eyelid surgery without removing the excess skin or the suture method. However, if patients want to do the suture method, they must know that the suture can be seen and not smooth. For those who have much excess skin and want to do the suture method, the result is unnatural because of the excess eyelids caused irritating. This makes them to revise.  

Things are often mistaken 

1. Scar    

     Since the eyelids are very sensitive area, keloids are hardly occurred at this area. So you don't have to worry about it after an operation. For removing the excess skin, it is also hardly seen the scar. The lesion of removing the excess skin by Microlaser will be smooth after recovery. However, it depends on personal skin including post eye surgery care. The advantage of Lovely Blepharoplasty is getting to the most natural eyes and doesn't use the suture to cling eye folds. Nowadays,there's Vbeam Laser, the best laser for the wound after an operation at Lovely Eye and Skin Clinic to help the lesion recovered well and smoother. 
      The redness of the lesion of Lovely Blepharoplasty with removing the excess skin during the first 3 weeks of the operation will appear and it will be faded away within 4-6 months. Also, the lesion is not much smooth but this is not keloid. It's normal for the first stage of recovery. Then this will be disappeared.
