Monolids, or single eyelids, are very common among East Asian populations, particularly those of Chinese, Korean and Japanese ethnic backgrounds. While it is not a defect and is a normal variation in anatomy, some people may find themselves wanting to create a double eyelid fold to give the illusion of larger eyes.
What Causes Droopy Upper Eyelids?
The most common cause of droopy upper eyelids is age-related stretching, where the skin and supporting tissues around the eyes become weaker. This can also be due to damage to the nerve controlling muscles of the eyelid.
Does Upper Eyelid Surgery Leave Scars?
After upper eyelid surgery, scars can occur but they are usually very well hidden. This is because incisions are typically made in the crease of the upper eyelid, making it difficult for other people to notice them.
Does Eyelid Surgery Look Natural?
Patients will experience different results after eyelid surgery. But generally, when in the hands of an experienced surgeon, patients can rest assured knowing that their results will be safe, natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing.
