Double eyelid surgery is a kind of ‘blepharoplasty’, a cosmetic surgical procedure involving the eyelids — like an eyelift. Double eyelid surgery takes mono lidded eyes and makes small incisions or stitches to create a creased double eyelid. Mono-lidded eyes are commonly found in about half of Asian populations, so the procedure has become very popular in countries like South Korea. Due in part to double eyelid surgery being one of the most common cosmetic procedures today, the technology and techniques have improved rapidly. Most mono-lidded people are great candidates and come out of the procedure with natural results. Here are a few surprising benefits people notice after undergoing double eyelid surgery.
Makeup Becomes Easier
Many mono-lidded people who wear makeup share the complaint that typical eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara techniques work poorly on mono lids. With double eyelids, morning makeup application is suddenly a whole lot less smudgy.
Surprisingly Natural Results
The vast majority of men and women who have had this procedure come out of it with very natural-looking results. Because it’s a relatively simple procedure, scarring and dire mistakes aren’t very common.
Bright-Eyed And Bushy Tailed
Double-lidded eyes tend to have a brighter more “awake” look than mono-lidded or heavy-lidded eyes. If you’re tired of looking sleepy, you’ll be happy to know that double eyelid surgery fixes that. Even sleepy-looking puffiness around eyes tends to disappear after the excess skin is taken care of during the procedure.
After the procedure, the way you look might be… young? Double eyelid surgery is surprisingly rejuvenating. Why? Partially because larger eyes are associated with younger faces. Like the most effective anti-aging eye cream ever!
Continuing education and research are only going to make double eyelid surgery an even more effective option for mono-lidded men and women. The slow but sure cultural acceptance of cosmetic procedures helps people build their confidence to take the plunge, too. Between 2016 and 2017 there was a 2% increase in the number of surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. That doesn’t sound like much, but that 2% represents over 300,000 people. Will you be one of them next year?
