Upper Blepharoplasty at Eagle Aesthetics & Surgery

Look and feel more refreshed with rejuvenated upper eyelids. Our experienced oculoplastic and plastic surgeons at Eagle Aesthetics & Surgery offer upper blepharoplasty to restore larger, more open eyes and prominent double eyelid folds.






What is Upper Blepharoplasty surgery?

The umbrella term of “upper blepharoplasty” actually refers to surgical procedures of the upper eyelid, such as:

  • Asian Blepharoplasty or Double Eyelid Surgery: Creation of a double eyelid fold for monolids
  • Ptosis Correction: Addresses excess drooping of the upper eyelids
  • Epicanthoplasty: Modifies the epicanthal fold for a different eye shape

Depending on the eyelid concerns you have, our specialist surgeons will assess your condition and recommend the appropriate procedure to address the concens.

Double Eyelid Surgery

Double eyelid surgery is a type of upper blepharoplasty. It aims to create an eyelid crease for those with monolids, or partially creased eyelids. This procedure shapes the eyes to achieve a desirable “double eyelid” fold.

There are typically two main approaches used: incisional blepharoplasty and suture blepharoplasty. Our specialists are experienced in determining the most appropriate blepharoplasty approach based on your individual’s anatomy and objectives. Both techniques, when performed skillfully, deliver beautiful and long-lasting eyelid enhancement.

Incisional Blepharoplasty

Process of Incisional Blepharoplasty

Incisional blepharoplasty is the most common surgical approach used for double eyelid creation and other upper eyelid treatments.

It involves making precise incisions within the natural upper eyelid skin fold. This allows careful removal or repositioning of excess tissues that cause drooping or hooding.

Incisions are closed with fine sutures. Healing takes 7-10 days, and the swelling subsides over 2-3 weeks. Though scarring is minimized, a thin line may remain within the eyelid crease long-term.

Our experienced surgeons meticulously perform incisional blepharoplasty to achieve natural, symmetrical results.

Suture Blepharoplasty

Process of Suture Blepharoplasty (Non-incisional)

As an increasingly popular minimally invasive option, suture blepharoplasty uses specialized stitches alone rather than incisions to reshape eyelid contours. This technique is also known as Scarless Double Eyelid Surgery as no incisions are made.

Under local anesthesia, the surgeon gauges tissues and places reinforcing sutures at strategic points to gently lift and redraw the eyelid margin location. No incisions or cutting of tissues are required.

For suitably structured eyes, suture blepharoplasty provides similar definition and enhancement as incisional surgery with less risk of scarring or post-operative bruising. Healing time is also faster at 5-7 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

The appropriate double eyelid procedure for you depends on several factors that our experienced surgeons will evaluate during a 1-to-1 consultation.

Some considerations include:

  • Eyelid anatomy – Thinner, more flexible eyelids respond well to suture methods while thicker eyelids are better for incisional techniques.

  • Desired crease definition – Suture methods produce more subtle contours, while incisions create longer lasting, sharper creases.

  • Healing and down time – Suture methods involve less bruising and faster healing but require potential touch-ups. Incisions have more swelling but longer lasting results.

  • Longevity of results – Sutures last 3-5 years typically, while incisional blepharoplasty produce more permanent results.

Our surgeon will examine your eyelids, discuss your expectations, and determine the approach with the best balance of safety, naturalness and duration for your individual case.

Not all lids or goals are identical, so an in-person evaluation best guides which double eyelid procedure will suit you.

Double eyelid surgery (upper blepharoplasty) costs around $3800 – 5800 depending on complexity and type of surgery.

It is recommended for you to go through a 1-to-1 consultation with our specialist to discuss your options as well as the suitability for treatment.

You may experience temporary light sensitivity, double vision, watery eyes, bruising, inflammation, and discomfort.

Most people feel ready to go out in public and back to work in about 10 to 14 days for incisional blepharoplasty.

Incisional Double Eyelid Surgery
The results of incisional double eyelid surgery using incisions are generally long-lasting when performed by an experienced surgeon. Factors like genetics and ageing may impact how long the crease lasts. Most patients retain natural-looking creases well over a decade after incisional double eyelid surgery.

Non-incisional (Suture) Double Eyelid Surgery
Without actual incisions made, non-incisional double eyelid surgery results often last 3-5 years before potentially requiring touch-ups to redefine the crease shape over time. 

Factors like genetics and ageing may impact how long the crease lasts. Following the surgeon’s post-op care instructions helps maximise how long the double eyelid effect endures.
