Eyelid Surgery to Create Double Eyelid and Make Eyes Look Bigger - Korea

i was thinking that having a double eyelid will make my eyes look bigger, hence less sleepy. Maybe prettier too, so i went ahead to do it.

i do not know what are the pros yet cuz i am not sure if the eye will look symetrical after the swelling goes off, and with the double fold i'm experiencing, its worrying!!!

cons will be the downtime i guess

i just did my double eyelid(incisional method, and epi as well)last week, today (30/7) is my 10th day. After the surgery, i realised there is a double fold on my left eye at times or when i open my eyes big which make it very ugly, but i thought was the stitch at cause the problem so i waited until yesterday for the stitch to be taken off.

After the nurse took off the stitch i realised the double fold was still there and i told her about it, she ask me to consult my doctor.

While waiting for the doctor, i realised the second fold disappeared and thought it was really the stitch that has caused it, and the doc appeared to be very busy during our post surgery consulation and i didn't bring that up.

But till today i still find a double fold on my left eye at times or when i open my eyes big.

May i know what is the cause of the double fold on one of my eyes, i'm very worried. Is it a normal? will it go off after the swelling goes down? ( my eyes are still a liitle puffy, but i can go out without getting stared at) i have read somewhere that problem is associated with (1) inadequate deep fixation, (2) damage to the levator muscle complex, and (3) excessive fat removal.??? is that true? worried.

Hi, i'm back to update my review after 1+ years. For those who thought i was impatient cuz it was still to early to tell bla bla bla...i can comfirm that i WASNT! Cuz after close to 1 year into the surgery my eyes was still like that. droopy on one side! so i emailed my doc and he agreed to do a revision for me FREE. so i flew all the way into Korea to get my problem "fixed"... and guess what? 3 months after the surgery my left lid drooped again and the stitch cant seem to hold on ( but it was better than after the 1st surgery), i emailed the doc about my condition again and he said this is his exact reply " some skins have strong strength to be returned. That is the reason the eyelid are getting droopy on the left eyelid again" and he needs to take a look on what can be done. i'm wondering if anyone has that problem and why is it not happening to my right eye but just the left since it's "a skin problem"??

Name not provided

i'm unsure if i can get my eyes looking normal :(
