When we are talking about undergoing double eyelid surgery, Korean surgery is considered to be the most popular choice. It is specifically done on people of Asian descent. Double eyelid surgery is performed to correct weak creases, while blepharoplasty aims to solve eyelid crease problems in Occidental patients. It is important to understand that the Korean plastic surgery procedure for double eyelid is quite similar to what surgeons use for blepharoplasty.
When we talk about blepharoplasty, the basic aim of the cosmetic procedure is to rejuvenate the upper lid that deteriorates because of aging. Moreover, surgery for this procedure removes the skin which has been stretched, weakened or poorly positioned. The existing crease is not reshaped in any way.
On the other hand, double eyelid surgery is somewhat different. In this surgery, the current inadequate or asymmetrical crease is corrected and enhanced. In fact, a new crease may also be created in some cases. However, removal of skin or fat is always minimal. Double eyelid Korean surgery aims to realign the internal eyelid structure of the patient.
