Double Eyelid Surgery

What is Double Eyelid Surgery?

Double eyelid surgery or East Asian Blepharoplasty is a Plastic Surgical procedure that reshapes the eyelid and creates an upper eyelid crease in an eyelid that does not have a crease. The main aim is to improve the appearance of the upper eyelid.

Why Double Eyelid Surgery?

Double eyelid surgery creates an upper eyelid crease, an upper eyelid fold making the eye look bigger and improving the overall facial appearance in people of east Asian heritage who are born without an upper eyelid crease.

How long does the operation take?

Double eyelid surgery is a surgical operation and hence it is performed in a licensed facility. It usually takes between 1 to 1.5 hours and can be done as a Day Surgery case which means you don't have to stay in hospital overnight.

How long is the healing process?

The healing process usually takes up to 2 weeks.

 

How much does it cost?

The cost depends on 5 factors

  1. Is it a Cosmetic Operation or a Operation with a medical benefit
  2. Does the operation qualify for Medicare Assistance
  3. Do you have Private Health Insurance
  4. Does your Private Health Insurance policy cover this operation
  5. Is it a simple straightforward operation or is it a complex operation.
