Approximately half of the Asian population lack the natural fold or upper eyelid crease that divides the eyelid into two parts. This is a natural trait of many Asian eyes and is commonly referred to as a “Monolid” or “Single Eyelid”. A popular non-surgical and non-incisional procedure is performed by Dr Phan to correct this, known as “double eyelid procedure”. The “double eyelid” procedure is the most commonly requested aesthetic procedure amongst the Asian demographic looking for a more defined upper lid crease.
If you are unhappy with the appearance or symmetry of your eyelids, you may be considering double eyelid procedure. For more information or to book a consultation with Dr Diana Phan, call (03) 9331 2566.
It is important to note that Dr Phan only performs non-surgical or non-incisional procedures on the upper eyelids. This information is to explain the difference between a surgical and non-surgical approach.

This technique is also referred to as Asian blepharoplasty procedure. It requires a surgical cut on the upper eyelids. This procedure is preferred when excess skin or fat needs to be removed during the procedure. A small cut is typically made at the skin fold to reduce the visibility of a scar post-procedure. This surgical or invasive procedure can either be performed in a hospital or under local anaesthetic at a plastic procedure or cosmetic procedure.
The non-incisional procedure is also known as a suture eyelid procedure. This procedure is done under local anaesthetic and does not require hospitalisation. Once the doctor has marked the correct areas of the eyelid skin they will create tiny surgical punctures. Through these surgical punctures, they will insert sutures under the skin so they are not visible after recovery. This creates a non-surgical double eyelid crease favoured in Asian facial aesthetics.
