Get Scarless Double Eyelid, Upper Eyelid, Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty Eye Lift Surgery In Singapore Plastic Surgery Clinic
Blepharoplasty, known as eye lift or eyelid surgery is one of the most popular facial surgical procedure in Singapore used by many. In Singapore, unlike in America and other non-Asian countries, the creation of Double Eyelids (Asian Blepharoplasty), or Upper Blepharoplasty, is by far the most common type of blepharoplasty surgery procedure as many Asians do not have double eyelid creases.
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic plastic surgery to rejuvenate the upper and/or lower eyelids and dramatically improves the appearance of tired, droopy eyes. Aging & sun exposure contributes to the appearance of wrinkles, bagginess under the eyes and sagging of the eyelids, thus make you look older, appear tired/fatigue or sad looking.
The blepharoplasty procedure reduces the appearance of wrinkling, reduce bags under the eyes and corrects drooping upper eyelids by removing excess skin from the upper eyelids. It is an effective way to reduce the signs of aging, giving you a refreshed look and a more youthful appearance. Blepharoplasty surgery is commonly sought by women, between the age of 40 and 60, who are seeking to look refreshed to remain competitive in the Singapore workplace.
In some cases, patients have eyelid surgery to improve their vision. This is common among the older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision.
Blepharoplasty can remove excess skin, muscle and sometimes fat from the upper or lower eyelids. In some cases, you might need only skin removed but not muscle — or you might need the procedure done on both upper and lower eyelids.
Upper Eyelid / Eye Lift Surgery
During upper eyelid surgery, also known as “eye lift” surgery, an incision is made within the natural fold of the lid to remove excess skin, tissue and in some cases a small section of muscle. The incision will go out as wide as possible so that additional skin folds on the outside of the upper eye can also be addressed. The incision is closed with absorbable sutures and the scar remains almost completely hidden because of where it resides in the natural crease.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
During lower eyelid surgery, an incision is made along the bottom of the lash line. This allows the surgeon to remove excess fat and tissue. In patients who have puffy lower eyelids, the surgeon will make the incision inside the lower eyelid rather than outside. Patients who have dark circles under their eyes will sometimes have a deficiency of fat in these areas so injectable is used to help fill these soft-tissue deficiencies.
Double Eyelid Surgery (Asian blepharoplasty)
The creation of double eyelid, also known as Asian blepharoplasty, is by far the commonest plastic surgery procedure among Singaporean and Asians. Double eyelid surgery is an upper blepharoplasty procedure used to create a supratarsal epicanthic fold in the upper eyelid of the patient who lacks such a crease. Most Asian do not have the double eyelid and are seeking this surgical procedure to give their upper eyelid a visible crease or fold when the eyes are open. This helps to uncover a portion of the natural eye contour and make their eyes appear more open, look rounder, bigger and less tired looking,. The creation of double eyelid is a desirable aesthetic enhancement as it also help the eyelids more amenable to makeup and exposes more of the eyelashes.

The position of the fold to be created varies from patient to patient, our blepharoplasty plastic surgeon will show you where the fold can be placed to give you the most natural looking result.

Depending on your anatomy, the position of the fold will vary to be either 2-3 mm above the lid (fine crease) or 4-6 mm(medium crease) or 7-10 mm( deep crease). Depending on the amount of extra fat and skin under your upper eyelid, our surgeons may choose to perform an incisional or a non-incisional procedure.
