Overview

What is Medial Epicanthoplasty?

Medial epicanthoplasty or double eyelid surgery is a safe procedure that enhances eye aesthetics by addressing the medial epicanthal fold. This skin fold in the inner corner of the eye contributes to a narrowed appearance of the eyes.

During medial epicanthoplasty, Dr Andrew Cheah will move this fold to the upper eyelids to open the eye horizontally. This eye-enhancing procedure refines the appearance of the eyes, creating a more open and pleasing look.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each patient’s healing process is different. For most, the healing process may span several months, with the initial epicanthoplasty recovery phase lasting around one to two weeks and more noticeable changes becoming evident in the subsequent months.

The following are general recovery phases after medial epicanthoplasty.

  • Immediate Postoperative Period (Days 1-7) – Patients may experience swelling and bruising, typical after any surgical procedure. Strenuous activities and direct pressure on the treated area should be avoided.
  • Subacute Phase (Weeks 2-6) – Swelling and bruising begin to subside, revealing initial improvements. Patients gradually resume more activities, although caution is advised to prevent strain on the treated area.
  • Intermediate Phase (Months 2-6) – Most noticeable swelling resolves during this period, and the final results start to emerge. Patients start regular activities and enjoy the increasingly refined outcome of the procedure.
  • Long-Term Healing (6 Months Onward) – At this stage, patients fully appreciate the final, natural-looking results of medial epicanthoplasty.
