Can an Oculoplastic Surgeon Perform an Double Eyelid Surgery?

I am considering an double eyelid surgery but I live in Belgium and can not go to a Asia for this procedure. I have found an oculoplastic surgeon who performs eyelid surgery and he says he can also perform double eyelid surgery but I have no idea how many procedures he has performed. He has about 10 years of experience. So I am wondering if he competent to do an double eyelid surgery based on his oculoplastic studies?

Asian double eyelid surgery

Afternoon Nahid14,


Bottom line, your surgeon should be able to show you the photo evidence of his or her work.  Many Facial Plastic and Oculoplastic surgeons can perform the procedure but not all know what you're really looking for and the anatomy as well as non-Asians.  It doesn't matter if the surgeon is Asian, just that the show consistent results and photo evidence of their experience.


Best of luck

In general yes

In the US, the Oculoplastics training programs are overseen by the American Society of Ophthalmic and Reconstructive Surgery, ensuring extremely well trained surgeons in Oculofacial Cosmetic and Reconstructive surgery. As we do not know the extent of your surgeons training it is not possible for us to unconditionally support his training.
However, in general, Oculoplastic surgeons expertise lies in surgery of the eyelids, and double eyelid surgery falls into that arena.

You should ask your surgeons the very same questions you have posed in this post.

Can an Oculoplastic Surgeon Perform an Double Eyelid Surgery?

Absolutely an oculoplastic surgeon is well trained in eyelid surgery. If you're concerned about specific experience with double eyelid procedures, you can ask how many cases the surgeon has performed and review some similar cases to evaluate whether you like that surgeon's results. I hope this information is helpful.
