Eyelid Surgery / Blepharoplasty In Bangkok, Thailand

Eyelid surgery, also called Blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of a patient’s eyelids. This surgery gives individuals an upper eyelid crease, which can make a person appear more youthful. 

Transgender Thailand’s partner hospitals offer a number of Blepharoplasty techniques to adjust the size and shape of a person’s eyelids.
Double Eyelid Surgery
In general, many Asians have little to no eyelid crease. This surgical procedure is quite popular among those who have smaller eyes, single eyelids, or unclear double eyelids. There are two techniques commonly used during this procedure:
  • Open technique. The surgeon makes an incision into the patient’s eyelid crease. Through this incision, the surgeon can access and remove excess fat and skin. The surgeon can now meet the patient’s desired aesthetics by stitching the skin close to create a new eyelid. 
  • Suturing technique The surgeon marks six points on the new eyelid crease. These six points will determine where the surgeon will insert the suture to create the new eyelid. 
Eye Ptosis Correction
Eye ptosis correction is a surgical procedure used to correct drooping eyelids. There are many techniques used during this procedure, which depend on the severity of the drooping eyelid. 

For mild eye ptosis, the surgeon can fixate a Levator application to correct the drooping eyelid.

For severe ptosis, the surgeon will use the frontalis muscle flap from the patient’s forehead and fixate a tarsal plate to make the eye more open. 

Lower Eyelid Surgery
This type of surgery is used to correct the loose skin, excess fat, and wrinkles of the lower eyelid. This gives the patient a smoother under-eye, which adds to their youthful appearance. 
  • Transconjunctival Lower Eyelid Surgery 
    This is suitable for a patient who has eye bags but still has good skin elasticity. The surgeon will remove the excess fat through an incision in the conjunctiva and close the incision with dissolvable stitches. 
  • Transcutaneous Lower Eyelid Surgery
    This technique is typically performed on patients with sagging skin, bags, or wrinkles due to a lack of skin elasticity. The surgeon will make an incision just below the lower eyelash. This incision will allow the surgeon to access and remove excess fat under the skin. 
Epicanthoplasty
This cosmetic procedure reduces the patient’s “Mongolian fold,” which is the skin of the upper eyelids that covers the inner corner of the eyes. During this procedure, the surgeon would make a small incision on the inner corner of the eyes to improve its shape.
  • W-Epicanthoplasty
    The surgeon will make a W-shaped line at the inner corner of the eyes. This method is recommended for people with a severe Mongolian fold. 
  • Z-Epicanthoplasty
    This method is used to change the direction of the inner corner. This procedure does not require skin removal.
  • V-Epicanthoplasty
    This procedure keeps the top of a person’s medial canthus pointed slightly downward and is typically performed on people with a mild Mongolian fold.
Canthoplasty
This is a surgical procedure that removes a person’s lateral Canthus to give their eyes a more balanced look. 
  • Lateral Canthoplasty
    This technique is used to create a change in the horizontal dimension of a person’s eye. It can enlarge the eye’s outer edge by approximately three millimeters.
  • Canthopexy (Cat eyes)
    This surgical procedure strengthens and stabilizes the lateral canthal tendon, repositions the outside corner of the eye, and restores a person’s youthful appearance. 
  • Lowering Canthoplasty
    This procedure can move the Cathus downward by up to five millimeters, significantly improving the balance and shape of a person’s eye.
