Can I Do Double Eyelid Surgery If I Have Double Eyelids?

In the pursuit of beauty and self-expression, individuals often seek cosmetic enhancements to refine their features and accentuate their natural allure. One such enhancement, double eyelid surgery, has gained popularity for its transformative effects on the eyes, creating a more defined and captivating gaze. But what if you already possess naturally occurring double eyelids? If you already have naturally occurring double eyelids, you might wonder if double eyelid surgery is still a viable option for you.

The answer? Yes, it is! Double eyelid surgery remains a compelling option for those seeking to elevate their eye aesthetics to new heights. Let us delve into the reasons why you might consider undergoing double eyelid surgery despite already having double eyelids, and explore subtle enhancement options such as canthoplasty.

Enhancement Beyond Natural Double Eyelids

Double eyelid surgery, also known as upper blepharoplasty, involves creating a distinct upper eyelid crease where none or only a partial crease exists naturally. Traditionally popular among individuals of Asian descent, this procedure has garnered widespread appeal for its ability to enhance eyelid symmetry, definition, and overall facial harmony.

While having double eyelids is often considered desirable in many cultures for its aesthetic appeal and the illusion of larger, more defined eyes, some individuals with naturally occurring double eyelids may still seek surgical intervention. Here are some reasons one may still consider double eyelid surgery despite possessing double eyelids: 

1. Desire for Symmetry

While natural double eyelids are often perceived as desirable, their symmetry can vary from person to person. Double eyelid surgery offers the opportunity to achieve greater balance and uniformity in eyelid crease appearance.

2. Enhanced Definition

Double eyelid surgery can enhance the definition and depth of the eyelid crease, creating a more pronounced and attractive eye contour.

3. Youthful Vigour

As we age, skin laxity and gravitational forces can diminish the prominence of eyelid creases, leading to a less vibrant and defined eye contour. Double eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the eyes, restoring a youthful appearance and revitalising your overall look.

4. Long-Term Results

While some individuals may have natural double eyelids, the crease may not be as defined or may become less prominent over time due to ageing or other factors. Double eyelid surgery can provide lasting results and maintain the desired eyelid contour.

Enhance Your Eye Aesthetics with Canthoplasty

If you are considering enhancing the appearance of your eyes, canthoplasty could be the solution you are seeking. This surgical procedure, often performed in conjunction with double eyelid surgery, focuses on reshaping the outer corner of the eye to achieve a more lifted and almond-shaped appearance.

By delicately repositioning the canthal tendons, canthoplasty not only creates a rejuvenated look but also complements the results of double eyelid surgery, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your eyes. 


In summary, if you have naturally occurring double eyelids, you can still undergo double eyelid surgery to enhance symmetry, definition, and overall eye aesthetics. Whether you desire more balanced eyelid creases, enhanced definition, or correction of asymmetry, double eyelid surgery offers a solution to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Additionally, canthoplasty can further enhance the appearance of the eyes by reshaping the inner and/or outer corners for a more lifted and youthful look. It is important to consult with a qualified oculoplastic or plastic surgeon to discuss your options and determine the best approach for achieving the desired enhancements to your eyelids.
