Asian Double Eyelid Surgery in Thailand: A Second Life For Your Eyes
– Did you know that Double eyelid surgery is also known as East Asian blepharoplasty? At Urban Beauty Thailand, we understand the subtle differences between the upper eyelids of Asian people (especially from the east, central and north of the continent) and patients who are of a different ethnicity. As a result, we offer Upper eyelid surgery Thailand which is specifically designed for patients who are East Asian in terms of ethnicity.

- We are also aware of the fact that Asian Upper eyelid surgery in Thailand is one of the most popular procedures in East Asia.
- This is why we have a specialist team who have gained experience from all corners of the globe.
- With their knowledge and access to the latest modern technology, upper eyelid surgery has never been so easy or affordable.
- The upper eyelid incision is made in the natural skin fold. Excess skin and fatty tissue is removed, the muscles and orbital septum (a thin connective tissue membrane) may be tightened, and the incisions are carefully closed.
- The external incisions are hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelids. Much of the operation is done with a very fine electro cutlery, which controls any bleeding. The skin is then closed with very fine sutures.
Asian Upper Eyelid Surgery Thailand
One of the most frequently performed surgical procedures, Asian upper eyelid blepharoplasty Thailand is used to remove the fat deposits, loose skin and drooping on that may form around the upper eyelids with age. Heredity and sun damage can accelerate these changes. Younger people also elect to have this procedure done to eliminate puffiness of the eyes from congenital excess fatty tissue.
Asian Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can improve two common problem areas:
1.) Excess skin on the upper eyelid itself, often called hooding of the upper lid, and
2.) Puffiness in the inner corner and middle of the upper eyelid caused by herniation (pushing forward) of fat.
- This procedure is frequently done at the same time as other procedures, such as a lower eyelid blepharoplasty, facelift or forehead lift, and can be combined with laser or chemical resurfacing to smooth skin wrinkles.
- When drooping of the upper lids interferes with vision (a condition known as ptosis), the procedure may be partially or fully covered by insurance.
- If you’re considering Asian upper eyelid blepharoplasty, the following information will provide you with a good introduction to the procedure.
- For more detailed information about how this procedure may help you, we recommend that you consult a plastic surgeon who is board certified or has completed a residency program that includes instruction in this procedure.

Risks and Complications
- When eyelid surgery is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are infrequent and usually minor. Nevertheless, there is always a possibility of complications, including , bleeding, infection or a reaction to the anesthesia. You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon’s instructions both before and after surgery.
- The minor complications that occasionally follow blepharoplasty include double or blurred vision for a few days; temporary swelling at the corner of the eyelids; and a slight asymmetry in healing or scarring.
- Tiny whiteheads may appear after your stitches are taken out; our surgeon can remove them easily with a very fine needle.
- Following surgery, some patients may have difficulty closing their eyes when they sleep; in rare cases this condition may be permanent. Another very rare complication is ectopic, a pulling down of the lower lids. In this case, further surgery may be required.
- After surgery, surgeon will probably lubricate your eyes with ointment and may apply a bandage.
- Your eyelids may feel tight and sore as the anesthesia wears off, but you can control any discomfort with the pain medication prescribed by surgeon. If you feel any severe pain, call our staff immediately.
- You will instruct to keep your head elevated for several days, and to use cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. (Bruising varies form person to person: it reaches its peak during the first week, and generally lasts anywhere from two weeks to a month.)
- You’ll be shown how to clean your eyes, which may be gummy for a week or so. Many doctors recommend eyedropper, since your eyelids may feel dry at first and your eyes may burn or itch.
- For the first few weeks you may also experience excessive tearing, sensitivity to light, and temporary changes in your eyesight, such as blurring or double vision.
- Surgeon will follow your progress very closely for the first week or two. The stitches will be removed two days to a week after surgery. Once they’re out, the swelling and discoloration around your eyes will gradually subside, and you’ll start to look and feel much better.
- At first the incisions will probably be red and somewhat bumpy. Eventually, the resulting scar should become flat and inconspicuous. Your sutures (stitches) will be removed sometime within the first week.
- The swelling and discoloration around your eyes will gradually subside, and you’ll start to look and feel better each day. Swelling and bruising varies considerably from person to person. Bruising typically disappears within seven to ten days.
- Within the first week you will be permitted to use makeup, if desired, to conceal any discoloration.
- Your vision may continue to be somewhat blurry for a few days or longer. Your eyes may be temporarily sensitive to light, and you may experience excess tearing or dryness. You may receive eyedropper to help relieve any burning or itching.
- Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can make a remarkable difference in the appearance of the face, alleviating the appearance of tiredness and old age.
- The eyes appear fresher and more youthful, and these results may last for many years. The degree of improvement varies from patient to patient.
This depends on your preferences as well as surgeon’s. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can be performed on an out patient basis, in the hospital, or in an ambulatory surgical suite under either general or local anesthesia.
General or Local Anesthesia.
Pre Operative Care
- Inform us about any allergies, any serious medical condition(s), and all medications you are taking (both prescription and non-prescription).
- Avoid aspirin and aspirin-containing medicines for two weeks prior to surgery.
Post Operative Care
- For the first week, you’ll need to avoid activities that dry the eyes, including reading, watching television, wearing contacts, and using a computer.
- Also avoid excessive blinking, which leads to increased swelling.
- You should also wear dark sunglasses for a couple of weeks to protect your eyes from wind and sun irritation.
- The eyes may tire easily for several weeks; frequent naps are helpful.
- For the first three or four weeks, you should avoid any activity that increases blood flow to the eyes, including bending, lifting, crying and sports.
- Our surgeon will let you know when you are ready for exercise. Also avoid drinking alcohol, which can lead to fluid retention and delay recovery.
FAQ : Surgical Procedure
How much pain is there?
Initially, you may feel a tight sensation around the eyes, with minor discomfort that lasts for a day or two. A mild pain reliever can be taken as needed. People who have had the procedure are often surprised at how painless eyelid surgery can be. Many times, isolated eyelid surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with a total recovery time as short as 7 to 10 days. (Recovery time varies from person to person.)
Are there scars from the blepharoplasty procedure?
Scars are a result of any surgical procedure. The incisions made to accomplish the goals of the procedure are barely visible after several months as they are placed within the normal creases and folds of the upper and lower eyelids. In patients who only need removal of fat from the lower eyelids, the incision can be made on the inside of the eyelid, and will therefore result in an invisible scar.
FAQ : Result
What are the goals of blepharoplasty?
A properly performed blepharoplasty procedure will brighten the face and restore a more youthful appearance. In some patients the procedure will improve vision by removing the excessive skin of the upper eyelids which can hang down and interfere with peripheral vision.
What are some of the most common benefits of this surgery?
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can make a remarkable difference in the appearance of the face, alleviating the appearance of tiredness and old age. The eyes appear fresher and more youthful, and these results may last for many years. The degree of improvement varies from patient to patient.
What is the long-term outcome like for most people?
- The more alert, youthful look that this surgery provides is usually long lasting. Thin scars may remain slightly pink for six months or so, but can easily be concealed with makeup. They eventually fade to a thin, nearly invisible white line.
- The removal of fat is permanent, but the looseness of the skin and fine wrinkling of the eyelid area may return in the future.
- Even though the aging process continues, patients are usually happy with their appearance for many years following eyelid surgery. Some patients find that they want to make additional improvements at a later time.
- If continued loss of skin tone in the forehead later causes sagging of the eyebrows, a forehead lift or second eyelid procedure may be performed.
