Case Study

Getting a Double Lid with blepharoplasty procedure


This patient presented with a heavy hood of skin on her upper eyelid.


This is the patient post an upper Blepharoplasty procedure. Note the defined upper crease of her eyelid. This procedure has opened her eyes and reduced the heavy "tired" appearance.

‘Double Lid’ Eyelid Procedure Before and After Photos with Makeup

It is quite common in Asian cultures for women to want a ‘double lid’, as generally speaking Asians do not tend to have much of an open plane between their upper eyelash line and eye crease. There are non-surgical techniques to obtain this look and this can be achieved through creativity with makeup, whereby makeup is used to create the illusion of a double lid, or by using a specialised sticking tape to the upper eyelid to tape a double lid into position.

Why Do Patients Choose Surgery as a Permanent Fix?

Both makeup and sticking tape are cheaper solutions than surgery and obviously have less risk of complication; however, they are not a long-term solution and require special attention daily.

Dr Lanzer can create a double lid look by performing an upper blepharoplasty. In this instance, he will mark the excess skin with a special surgical marker; this to establish a pattern that suits the patient best. It is very important not to take too much skin from the area, otherwise it will not close properly. Dr Lanzer has performed thousands of procedures, which has given him the experience to gauge this very precisely. Thus far, he has never experienced a complication where the patient could no longer close the eye.

Can the Procedure Be Executed for Medical Reasons?

Performing this procedure on a patient with Asian roots, whereby their upper eyelashes do not have skin hanging on to them, is purely for cosmetic purposes. However, performing this procedure on a patient who has skin hanging on to their upper lash line, disturbing their vision, may be considered a medical procedure and therefore the patient would be able to claim from Medicare and their private health fund. Each private health fund varies, so it is best for you to phone up your health insurance and check for yourself.

Is This Procedure Suitable for Eyelid Problems?

To determine if a blepharoplasty is the right treatment for your eyelid problem, it is advised to make an appointment with Dr Daniel Lanzer at one of his clinics. New patients can benefit from a free appointment, during which Dr Lanzer can discuss the treatment with you.

Before you can be eligible for the procedure, Dr Lanzer needs to determine if the problem you have with your eyelids could be fixed with a blepharoplasty. The patient must also be in good overall health, since this is a surgical procedure that requires some degree of recovery.

For more detailed information about the blepharoplasty, we kindly refer patients to the information page on the website. Do you wish to speak to Dr Daniel Lanzer directly?
