Double Eyelid Surgery in Puerto Vallarta

The Ultimate Guide to Double Eyelid Surgery in Puerto Vallarta

Looking at double eyelid surgery in Puerto Vallarta? Get the lowdown with Medical Departures.

If you are of far eastern or south-east Asian descent, you may have problems with your eyelids than can be helped by double eyelid surgery in Puerto Vallarta. Many Asians have either mono lids (lids with no creases) or hooded eyelids that can even prevent clear vision. Some have a semi crease on one eyelid and no crease on the other. A double eyelid surgery will enable you to have symmetrical eyelids with a single crease for good vision and allow you to put on eye makeup properly.

This surgery can be done in three ways and the kind which is right for you depends on the type of eyelids you have. These are:

Full incision method – with this method the fold is created after removing excess fat from the eyelid.
Partial incision method – with this method the surgery removes some of the fat through a micro incision and then sutures are used to create the crease
Sutures in the crease method – this is actually non-invasive since the uses only sutures in what will be the crease line to create the fold. This is for people with naturally thin eyelid skin.

The purpose of double eyelid surgery is simply to add a crease to the eyelids and not to give a westernized appearance to the eyes.

Why consider double eyelid surgery in Puerto Vallarta?

Puerto Vallarta is a great holiday destination particularly if you are residing in North America or Canada. It is easily accessible by direct flights. It has numerous tourist attractions and sites including clear waters and miles of beaches. You can indulge in water sports, horse riding or bird watching or take a trip to one of the many islands or smaller towns nearby. Or you can simply choose to relax and have a languid holiday in warm weather.

Besides being home to many expats, PV also offers excellent medical facilities with state of the art clinics and hospitals and all services at reasonable rates. Medicines in Mexico too are available very cheaply when compared to prices of the same products in the U.S. and Canada. The quality of care is very good and doctors are often qualified in western countries.

Why can’t you book on your own?

While it would seem to be easy to book on your own, you should simply check out the sites and put your research in place. Most sites will not list any prices or offer any transparency and you have no way of verifying any information on a website. Nor can you go by testimonials alone as you have no idea about how genuine they are. It can be extremely risky to book blindly because it is surgery at the end of the day.

Medical Departures, on the other hand, makes sure that you have a safe surgical experience. We can do this because we carry out a thorough investigation of the credentials and training of the doctors at the clinics and hospitals to make sure that they are well qualified and trained. Not only that, but we also make sure hat the ambience and routine health and safety protocols at the hospital are up to international standards.

How much time does double eyelid surgery take and what is the recovery period?

Normally double eyelid surgery is done under local anesthesia and it can take between half an hour to an hour. After 5-7 days the stitches are removed. You should be able to leave the clinic or hospital after a few hours, with bandages. You will have some bruising and swelling. You should ideally be off work for a few days.

The bruising and swelling will take two to four weeks to subside and you should not be wearing eye makeup for a month. You will probably wear dark glasses to hide the after effects of surgery and also protect your eyes. After that time your eyes will look reasonably normal but full recovery can take as much as three months.

How much does double eyelid surgery cost?

In Puerto Vallarta you can expect to pay around US$ 1,500 upwards for this surgery. The same surgery in U.S. and Canada will cost between US$ 2,800 and US$ 4,000.
