East Asian blepharoplasty, or “double eyelid surgery” is a cosmetic surgery where the skin around the eye is reshaped, with the purpose to create a “double eyelid”. The upper lid fold can range from 1 mm (0.039 in) above the eyelash line to about 10 mm (0.39 in). There are several methods to create a double eyelid, some of them are:

–         Full incisional methods;-         Partial incisional methods;-         No incisional methods.

An expert plastic surgeon will explain you in details what does each of them mean and what is the most suitable one for your anatomy.

A well-known fact about this is that most surgeons prefer a full incisional technique of Asian double eyelid surgery. They say that this kind of incisions result in more reliable, attractive and long-lasted double eyelid. But, once again: this kind of incisions doesn’t fit everyone’s eye anatomy, so be sure your surgeon will tell you everything about this before.

So, professionals recommend, first of all, to look at the double eyelid surgery before and after pictures, hear the stories of people who perform this surgery, how they passed over it, in which way it helped them etc., and be sure you really want it after this.

Now, after watching the story above, look at the pictures of the people who performed such a surgery and see the difference. Only in this way you can make your own conclusion.

If you have already decided to perform this surgery, please be sure you don’t use make-up on the surgery day. After this, you need to know that you can choose to take an anesthesia or to be fairly awake, taking medications by mouth for relaxation and then being ready to undergo the procedure.

This is the choice that you should do before the surgery, in your discussion with your surgeon.


It is a normal question you need to know the answer before making even a step in performing it.

The cost varies depending on the place where it is performed, but also on the qualification of the surgeon you choose. Sure, a good specialist will cost you more than a beginner. Generally, this is between $2500 and $6000.

In America this kind of surgery is more expensive than in South Coreea, the difference being some thousands of dollars. But take into account that this is not the only fact that influences the cost of your surgery.

As you already know there are different types of double eyelid surgery. If you only want an eyelid crease, then it will cost you at most $1500 in South Coreea. You also have to know that there are some additional procedures that you can perform to make your eyes bigger and rounder, but this will cost you another money.Attention! The insurance does not cover the surgery costs, so, don’t count on it.

Recovery Period

Sure, it is also an essential point on this topic you need to be informed about. The average recovery period is 1-2 weeks for most patients. But, as you know, each person is different and your organism can react worse on changes than your friend’s organism and vice-versa.
