Eyelid Surgery FAQ







Q. What's the difference between incision and non-incision eyelid surgery?

A.  For incision eyelid surgery, we have created a technique we call the skinny incision technique for more precision and less scaring! Old style incision method creates harsh lines and overall results in scaring that lasts forever. With the skinny incision, you don't need to worry about big, noticeable scars. This method is most suitable for thick eyelids with a lot of fat or loose skin.




<Skinny Incision Eyelid Surgery>
For non-incision Eye lid surgery, we have an advanced method called the seven-lock non-incision method. The doctor will do micro incision to hold the crease together at seven points, giving you a beautiful, natural crease without any scaring or unnatural look. The old, traditional method was three, but here at ID we do seven micro-locks for not only a more natural, softer look, but for stronger durability so that it will never unravel like the old, traditional method. This method is suitable for thin eyelids with little or no fat, already existing crease, etc.



After a consultation with our doctor, the doctor will examine your eyes and decide which procedure is best suited for your eyes.





Q. My eyelids are uneven! 

A. Generally for uneven eyelids, this can be corrected by non-incision eyelid surgery. However, in some cases, incision surgery may be needed if there is an excessive amount of fat and/or skin. 

In some cases however, asymmetry may be caused from weak muscles that cannot open up the eye to its fullest potential. The levator muscles in our eyes will then need to be corrected so that they are strong enough to evenly open the eye (see next question for more information).
















Q.  My eyes look heavy, so people always tell me I look sleepy.

A. If you have ptosis (droopy or sleepy eyes), you need to have ptosis correction surgery. People who have ptosis have weak levator muscles (eye opening muscle), so they open their eyes with their muscles on their brow and forehead. Ptosis will make people have more wrinkles on their brow or forehead as they age. Ptosis correction surgery not only corrects the eye muscles, but it also makes double eyelid, too.






Q. My eyes look so far apart!

A. Medial epicanthoplasty is a procedure performed to cut the inner corners of the eyes (medial canthus). This will give the eyes a much more softer, bright-eyed appeal.






Q. My eyes make me look aggressive and mean! 

A. Lateral hotz cuts and pulls downward along the outer corners of the eyes, so it is a popular procedure for those who have slanted eyes. People who have slanted eyes may look more fierce, so by undergoing lateral hotz, their impression will become much more soft and cute.













Q. How long is the recovery period after surgery?

A. It depends on a surgical method and patients’ skin type, but normally patients will have some swelling or bruising for the first few days after surgery. These will disappear slowly over time. Simple eye makeup is possible from one week after and it takes about 4 weeks for the full recovery and until the swelling disappears.



Q. I’m going to have an incision eyelid surgery, but afraid of unnatural result.


A. The reason of unnaturally thick-looking eyelid is, because the surgeon could not successfully remove the muscle and fat that make the eyelid look puffy. Our ‘Skinny incision double eyelid surgery’ creates very slim and natural double eyelids, while removing unnecessary muscle and fat.







Q. Is non-incision method easily unraveled?

A. There has been many unraveling cases since originally only three or four stitches were made to create the double eyelid crease. However, ID hospital has now introduced the ‘Seven lock non-incision method’. With this method, double eyelids will not disappear since we make seven stitches to create the double eyelids. The double eyelid crease is more firm, making the crease clear from beginning to end.


Q. I have eyebags!

A. Under our eyes, fat bags sags down making deep folds (tear trough deformity). By having fat bag removal and fat re-positioning under your eyes, this feature will be greatly improved. You can just have fat bag removal under your eyes only, but if you have fat bag removal only, your face will look very flat. A flat face makes an individual look old. Such as fat grafting, by re-positioning fat under your eyes, you can achieve young and cheerful look.









Q. How long do I need to stay in Korea?

A. For most cases, 7-8 days following the surgery date is sufficient. There will be about 2 follow-ups after you are discharged and you may almost immediately return to normal daily life.



Q. After surgery, my eyelids are red and painful. Is there something wrong?

A. Those are very normal and often occur during the recovery period.
Normally patients will have those feelings from a week post surgery and will become better slowly within few weeks.



Q. My eyelid skin is droopy since I’ve been using glue and tapes to create temporary double eyelid. Can I go for a non-incision method?

A. Creating temporary double eyelids using glue and tape may result in worsened skin elasticity. In this case, a non-incision method is not recommended and an incision method has to be performed to remove sagging skin. The most suitable method has to be chosen carefully depending on a level of skin droopiness.



Q. When can I undergo revision surgery?


A. If the first surgery was not satisfactory and revision surgery is being considered, then the patient needs to wait at least 6 months until the damaged soft tissues have recovered enough to be reworked on again. With each surgery that follows the first, soft tissues will become more damaged compared to the first surgery, thus a well-experienced and skillful surgeon is required in order to avoid a second or third surgery.



Q. When will I be public-eye ready?

A. At about ten days. Most of the bruising will be gone within a week and most of the major swelling will have settled down by the ten day mark. You will still have noticeable swelling, but you can camouflage it with make-up. After about a month, 70% of the swelling will be gone.



Q. I need to undergo revision surgery, but I'm scared of unnatural results.

A. If the patient wishes to undergo revision surgery, we recommend waiting at least a minimum of 6 months. With each surgery that is performed, more and more soft tissue becomes damaged in the region. If the soft tissues become too damaged with the number of surgeries, then the area may either become inoperable or look stiff. It is critical that the patient chooses the doctor right the first time to reduce the risk of revision surgery.


If the patient must undergo revision, then a revision specialist must be contacted instead since revision cases are far more complex and intricate. Unlike other hospitals, we have doctors who are experts in revision surgery each specialized in their own field. We will give you the best look that is natural and well-balanced with the harmony of your face.

  1. Blepharoplasty involves cutting the outer end of the eyes to make them wider and rounder, something plastic surgeons say boosts confidence.
