A woman had double eyelid surgery 2 weeks ago. She wants to know why her eyes are still swollen after the surgery.
Dr. Amiya Prasad explains that swelling at this time is typical. He does a lot of Asian eyelid surgeries and he can certainly share over 20 years of doing this surgery that there is some degree of variability between patients regarding the amount of swelling they have. Asian eyelid surgery requires a particular type of method that involves the fixation of the eyelid crease to the muscle that lifts the eyelid called the levator muscle. In order to create that crease, there has to be a connection made between the skin and the levator muscle. This can be performed both with an incisional or a non-incisional procedure.
After surgery, there is crowding in the tight space. Fluid has the tendency to back up between the eyelid crease and the eyelid margin. That swelling can take time to resolve. Swelling is often the reason patients panic because they feel that the eyelid crease is too high. This type of swelling in two weeks is normal and that swelling can linger and be variable in the course of several months and can go on to as long as one year. True surgical healing can take up to a year to resolve.
Dr. Prasad explains that the swelling she is experiencing is likely normal and the only things that he suggests to his patients to help resolve swelling is to manage any allergies, particularly eye allergies. They should also manage any sinus issues, get adequate sleep and do things that are healthy.
Hey everyone: the holidays are here!! Consider supporting us here at HallyuBack by purchasing a painting 🙂 They are very reasonably priced, each piece is original and they make great holiday gifts!
You can view all my artwork and the meaning behind each painting here:
I don’t judge plastic surgery, I actually REALLY admire it when it turns out really pretty and natural looking (American plastic surgery does NOT look natural at all). There are some Korean celebrity cases like Park Bom where I say “Ooooh that looks so bad and creepy”, but for the most part I think Korean plastic surgeons are probably the best in the world.
She’s wearing makeup and stuff in the second one, unfair comparisons are a bit rigged, perhaps to advertise a clinic or whatever for a discount on the operation..
i love that steph encourages monolids instead of saying that double eyelids are better. i’m korean/japanese and i have single eyelids. for the longest time growing up i believed it was unfortunate the fact i had single eyelids instead of double. and a lot of american (mostly white) people agreed that if i had eyes like them, i’d be prettier.
Before anything, can we just get a moment of silence in honor of my very first vlog?…LOL.
In this video I will bring you guys along my journey of getting double eyelids through the full incisional method. My doctor Dr. Goretti Ho did a great job and so far I am really happy with the results (although there’s still much healing needed). This video will walk you through the day of surgery to suture removal and up to the 13th day after surgery. I won’t go into too much detail here but please visit my blog(see link below) and Instagram for more detailed day to day updates.
I know some of you are going to notice the typos as I misspelled “anything” and “stitches” in one of the frames, I SO SOLLY. 🙁
And please do not post stupid comments because this is something I wanted to do due to my personal preferences, your negative/offensive opinions will not be tolerated here. Thanks.
For those of you who are interested in the procedure and are thinking of doing it, hope this can be of help. Oh, and stay tuned for part II where I’ll update you guys on the healing process.

Hello everyone! I can’t believe I’m typing in this video description box, ha! I hope you guys enjoyed the brief update and immersion into my blepharoplasty journey. I know this video is long overdue, but I’m glad that I finally get to share my journey with you all. It was long, and at times painful, but so incredibly worth it. I am happy to say that my eyes are 100% recovered and I think this surgery has given myself a huge boost in confidence. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
Blepharoplasty is surgical modification of the eyelid. Excess tissue such as skin and fat are removed or repositioned, and surrounding muscles and tendons may be reinforced. It can be both a functional and cosmetic surgery.
Blepharoplasty is often done as an elective surgery for cosmetic reasons. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is almost always done for cosmetic reasons, to improve puffy lower eyelid “bags” and reduce the wrinkling of skin.

Going to Dr. Lee and getting the surgery was the most exciting thing ever and I love to relive it with you and walk you through anything you may be going through. Yayyyyy email@example.com. : )
