Double Eyelid Surgery in Cancun

The Ultimate Guide to Double Eyelid Surgery in Cancun

Want to change your look with Double Eyelid Surgery in Cancun? This procedure is also known as Asian blepharoplasty due to its popularity among Asians for changing their single eyelid into a double eyelid.

Monolids are a typical feature of Asian eyes, and these tend to make the eyes look smaller, especially if there is fatty tissue present which can give a hooded appearance. The double eyelid procedure puts a crease in the lid and opens up the eye area.

Why have double eyelid surgery in Cancun?

Cancun is one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations. It has everything you need for a great time – crystal blue water gently lapping white, sandy beaches; great shopping; a wide variety of entertainment; fabulous restaurants and top-class hotels. Where could be better to have some pre and post-surgery rest and recuperation?

Cancun is also considerably less expensive for plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures than the US, Canada, most of Europe and Australia/New Zealand. If you’re looking for a holiday where you can combine your surgery then Cancun should be one of the destinations on your list.

Mexico offers a lot in terms of medical tourism, and Cancun is one of the jewels in its crown. It’s an upscale resort and the healthcare facilities are modern, luxurious and upmarket too. Many foreign patients find them to be better than what they’re used to at home.

It isn’t surprising really as medical tourism is a business built on trust. If international clients are not comfortable then they just wouldn’t come. Those that do typically have a good experience and recommend it to their friends and relatives. The customer care standards are excellent, but so too is the medical expertise. Doctors who treat foreign patients speak good English, and many have trained in the US and have the same qualifications as a surgeon back at home has. You will find US Board Certified surgeons in Cancun and clinics adhering to internationally-recognised health and safety procedures – all signs that promote reliability and trustworthiness.

How long does the double eyelid surgery procedure take?

The procedure is relatively quick – only taking about an hour. The surgery is done as an out-patient, so you won’t usually have to stay in hospital overnight.

What is the recovery time after Double Eyelid Surgery?

You should expect bruising and swelling afterwards, and your eyes will feel a little tender for up to 48 hours. After that you should begin to feel much better as the swelling will start to go down. It typically takes between 2 and 4 weeks before the swelling has gone completely.

You may have dissolvable stitches, but if not they are usually removed between 5 and 7 days. After that you should be able to engage in your normal activities – and you should be able to cover up any remaining bruising with make-up.

Vigorous activities should be avoided for 6 weeks and it could take 6 months’ to a year for all the eye tissue to be fully healed.
