Hey everybody, it has been a while since I last posed and today’s post is about my double eyelid surgery that I have gotten it done a couple of months back and now it is fully recovered! The reason I wanted to get this surgery is because I have always wanted a higher crease even though I already have got double eyelid. I have been using double eyelid sticker ever since secondary school, which has been pretty annoying always looking into the mirror and wishing I have got the crease a little higher.
I think by now if you are researching on what types of surgery, you would have known the difference between the stitching method and the cutting method, but if you are still wondering if whether should you do cutting or stitching, it is entirely up to you. I chose stitching method is because it is more natural than cutting for sure and there isn’t much scaring (almost none), I am super afraid of thick eyelids that looks super fake which is something I would never want and knowing that stitching method might not last as long kinda gives me assurance if I ever don’t like it, it will be reverted to the original look of mine.
If by any chance, you have no idea what are the differences to cut it simple cutting method has no reversing way and it is permanent, if you like it or not you have to stick with it for the rest of your life (unless you’re gonna redo). On the other hand, stitching method is semi-permanent because it all depends on how you take care of it. If you are a person that rubs your eye very often, then it probably wouldn’t last long on you and the average lifespan of it varies, it could be from 2 years and ranges to 10 years likely so, and for some people it just lasts them till they die.
And, I also wanted parallel instead of tapered eyelids as well. Here’s the difference between the 2 different lids.
Here’s my eyelid before the surgery!
Which you could clearly see the unevenness which I really hated. And so when it comes to research, I came to know about a clinic located in Johor Bahru (JB), which is called the MeClinic and decided to head there.
The surgery I did is called the Double Suture & Twist, DST for short. Like I have mentioned, stitching are usually without scars, that is why mine didn’t look fake and looks really natural and my friends don’t see much of a difference. The BEST thing about DST is that it is reversible!
The process probably took about 15-20 mins, and Doctor David actually flipped over my eyelid. I could literally feel it LOL, but the whole process is totally painless.
This is the end product on the spot after the surgery:
And this is after a week or so, which I really love the crease:
When it is swelling still, it is very important to place the cold/hot pack on your double eyelid as well to reduce the swell.
This is after a month:
And this is recently after 3 months:
I think it is very important to know what you want and find a good doctor before deciding, and I assure you that Dr David is really very friendly and patient letting me know where is the maximum crease my eyelid can go.
