Half-Incision Double Eyelid Surgery

This is also called Korean-style mini-incision surgery. Compared to the traditional full-incision double eyelid surgery, it is most distinctly different in the length of the wound, which only necessitates an incision of approximately 1–1.5 cm at the eyelid center. Via such an incision, Dr. Chuang implements various double eyelid procedures with microsurgery devices and sutures, such as the adjustment of the levator muscle, palpebrae embedding fixation, and orbital fat removal or grafting, which avoids complications such as an exceedingly long scar or prolongs the recovery time reported in traditional double eyelid surgeries. Because this technique is minimally invasive to the palpebrae tissues, natural results are rapidly seen. It is suitable for young patients who desire stable results but who have concerns about scarring or those having concurrent levator muscle weakness (ptosis) or asymmetrical eyelid appearances.

Half-incision Method

Surgical conditions

Duration

0min
  • Type of anesthesia: IV sedation + local anesthesia
  • Surgical incision: An Aapproximately 1–1.5-cm incision at the palpebrae center
  • Recovery: 5–7 days
  • Removal of stitches: 7 days

General instructions

No food and water on the day of surgery

0hr
  • Avoid smoking, alcohol, and irritating foods for 1 month postoperatively.
  • Apply a warm pack for 3 months postoperatively for the eyelid swelling to subside.
  • Perform proper eyelid elevation activities for 3 months postoperatively.

Ideal candidates

  • Young patients with monolids.
  • Patients with congenital but indistinct double eyelids.
  • Those who underwent have undergone sewing double eyelid surgery that showed insignificant results.
  • Young patients with double eyelids having mild eyebrow compression to the eyes and or concurrent sagging of the eyelid tail of the eye.
  • Patients who haveDouble eyelid patients having thick and puffy eyelids that require simultaneous orbital fat removal.
  • Those who have asymmetrical eyelids caused by levator palpebrae muscle weakness.
  • Those who have concerns and doubts about the long incision and scar from the traditional double eyelid surgery.
  • Those who desire profound and obvious double eyelids.

Potential complications

  • Eyelid asymmetry
  • Exceedingly deep eyelid folds
  • Scar adhesion
  • Eyelid eyelid chronic edema

Surgical advantages

  1. It presents needs the creation of a short incision and presents a fast recovery whichand is less likely to leave scars.

  2. It presents a fast recovery due to mini-invasive procedures

  3. Eyelid incision allows complete embedding fixation, and the results are long lasting.

  4. The height of the fixation site is flexibly selected to sculpt profound or distinct results.

  5. Orbital fat removal, fat fillinggrafting, or levator palpebrae muscle correction are simultaneously conducted at the same time.

  6. In case of asymmetry, a simple micro-adjustment is performed, without the need for entire double eyelid revision.

Surgical drawbacks

  1. It cannot be used in patients with aging eyelid laxity or sagging.

  2. Despite being short, the eyelid incision may still leave a visible scar.

  3. The sSurgical results may not last for as long as those of the traditional full-incision technique.

  4. Asymmetry due to scar adhesion may occur.
