Double Eyelid Surgery in Bali

The Ultimate Guide to Double Eyelid Surgery in Bali

Looking at surgery for double eyelids in Bali? Find out with Medical Departures why Bali could be the best place for your surgery.

This surgery is very popular with the Asian population who get it done to change the hooded appearance of their single monolids to more open, double eyelids. Double eyelids are an attribute of Western faces, and there is some controversy over why Asians would want to look Western, but although this is a feature of the surgery, it isn’t the only reason why it may be embarked upon. Big eyes are desirable throughout the world, and it is a characteristic of the Asian monolids that they tend to make the eyes look smaller.

In some instances, if there is fatty tissue present in the eyelids, monolids may become overly-heavy, affecting eyesight, and so double eyelid surgery may well be the preferred option to address this problem.

Double eyelid surgery is relatively short – lasting around an hour. Typically, a local anesthetic is given and you should be discharged from hospital on the same day.

What is the recovery time after Double Eyelid Surgery?

After surgery, your eyes will feel tight and you can expect to see bruising and swelling. After about 48 hours this will start to dissipate, but it could take 2-4 weeks before it has completely settled down.

You may have to have stitches removed 5-7 days later, or they may be dissolvable. After your stitches have been removed, or dissolved, you can wear makeup if you need to conceal bruising. You will be advised not to indulge in heavy lifting or vigorous activities to ensure all the tissue has healed.
