My Journey to obtaining Double Eye Lids (My double eye lids surgery)

Many of you should have known by now that i did my double eyelid surgery in Taiwan...
Why this decision and why Taiwan?

Since young, i have uneven eyelids(left eye has a weak line and my right eye has none) with excessive fats.
It is really frustrating to do my eye-make up as it will be uneven and non-visible despite of the efforts made..
Double eyelids glue and stickers will be of no use to be due to my fatty + puffy eyelids.. Due to the unevenness, It is also difficult to put on falsie to enlarge the appearance of my eyes.

Decided to go ahead with this surgery after i'm done with my PT degree studies as i wish to reward myself for all the hard work put in...

That's my eyes without any make-up

My eyes with heavy eye make-up and falsies..
(Note the unevenness and puffy eyes even with a lot of eye-make up)

I have consulted a doctor in Singapore as i wanted to do the Suture Method initially...
There will be no incision (Cut) made to create folds on the eyelids as eyelids will be sewn instead..

This method has lesser risk, lower downtime and it is reversible (in case you are not happy with the outcome).
Since 3-points suture will be used to secure the folds in place, this method will not be permanent..
As per my research, knots will loosen / break within a few years so you have do the procedure again..

However, i have too much fats on my eyelids so this method is not suitable for me..
Little or No fats cannot be extracted using this method so my lids will be putting a lot of pressure of the suture (eeekss! Imagine if it breaks when i rubs my eyes)

Hence, i have decided to go for the incision method as it is permanent and fats can be extracted! :)

Under the incision method, there's conventional and mini-incision method...

Under the conventional method, an incision of 2-3 cm will be made.. Excessive fats and skin can be removed so results will be permanent..

Under the mini-incision method, a mini incision of 0.5 - 0.8 cm will be made.. Excessive fats can be removed but not excess skin... As such, this method will not be suitable for more matured individuals with droopy / saggy eyelids.

Decided to go ahead with the mini-incision method as there are lesser downtime and complication. I also don't fancy long scars on both lids which will seem so unnatural. Moreover, i do not have saggy skin on my eyelids and there's no need to remove excess skin...

My bf is not an exception as he thinks that i look morelady-like with long hair soi can't cut it short! -_-

But face it, long hair aren't easy to manage as you will get dry / damaged hair with lot of tangles and spilt ends.. As your hair gets longer, you will subject the same surface area with more and more chemical treatments overtime... In addition, your hair condition will worsen due to UV rays, stress, styling and heating tools. When hair becomes damage, tiny surface imperfections will surface which lets in free radicals thus leading to colour fade and breakage.

In today's hectic society, you cannot be running to the salon almost every 6 weeks for intensive treatments. Even after the best salon treatments, hair will 'depreciate' with its protein and strength as some salon processes can damage hair’s inner structure ... Cracks will start to appear, worsen and more free radicals will penetrate so hair starts feeling rough, dry and brittle. How you wish you can prolong the lifespan of your salon treated hair!

Now you can maintain healthy, Shiny, Smooth and Manageable hair with the help of Iphone/Andriod app and Keratinology (By Sunsilk) products...
