我的雙眼皮 (My Double Eyelid Stitching Experience)

6 August 2014

Ladiesssssss, I really exciting to PUBLISH this today!

Sorry for the delay, i should have publish this 100 years earlier but i was busy with travel lately. Add on, it's a long post, i don't wanna missed out anything..That's why it takes time to complete this blog posts...I guess most of you all already realized about my new double eyelid right! I've received tons of message/comments recently.. asking me about my eyelid. Yes, i know there's a lot of you out there who are curious about all the details & procedure about this. Therefore, i'm going to share this out!

You know what, I always dream to have a bigger and brighter eyes. Double eyelid is really important, it can definitely enhance & creates a bigger eyes. Cosmetic surgery are pretty common these days. It's different with plastic surgery because Cosmetic Surgery is more focused on enhancing appearance instead of changing it. It's something minor & the recovery is definitely faster than ps. I have always been open to the concept of surgery even though maybe i don't really need it. I was never unhappy with my looks, but come on... who don't wants a better looks? I did feel that certain areas of my face could be improved. For example: my eyes, and my skin! 

I have just did my double eyelid stitching surgery 3 weeks ago in SkinArt. There's nothing wrong with it, i don't have to hide. I'm always happy to share my experience because i'm really satisfy with the results. So basically this post is a sharing on my very first cosmetic surgery, just sharing my experience as requested by some of my readers! I'm not advising everyone MUST go for cosmetic surgery but if it can actually change your life and boost your confidence, why not? (^-^)

Well, There's few types of double eyelid surgery :
Stitching ( non-cutting) & Cutting 

The one i did is Skinartesse Scarless Double Eyelid. (sewing/stitching)

This Skinartesse Double eyelid stitching is unlike the traditional method of double eyelid surgery which uses a blade to cut the skin of the upper eyelid to form a crease. It creates more define and scarless crease.  Skinartesse Double eyelid stitching also known as the non-cutting / non incisional double eyelid surgery technique. No cutting, no surgery blade at all is required. 

WHY Skinartesse scarless Double eyelid stitching??

  •  It gives a more natural crease, natural look
  • The downtime is shorter & there is no wound / cut created
  • There is no scar, cut, or blade mark when you close your eyes;
  •  It has lower risks then the cutting / blade technique;
  • No one will know that you had double eyelids done because it just looks so NATURAL

 Before the surgery, I discuss with Dr.Rachel regarding the procedure that suited my eyes and asked about the healing period. Due to I want the recovery period shorter, I chose stitch. To be safe... If I don't like the design of it, I can change in the next few years, since it only last for few years.  Plus, there won't be much scarring as compared to the cutting method. I prefer something natural because i never put on makeup all the time. Therefore, Dr.Rachel suggest me to go for the Korean style stitching, medium crease because it creates more natural looks

Medium crease looks more natural even without makeup :)


This procedure is Suitable for : 

-Sick off double eyelid tapes/glues
- Single eyelid, low eyelid crease
-eye with multiple eyelid crease
-Unbalance eyelid
-Puffy eyes

EASY, Because double eyelid is so so so IMPORTANT!
 It's clear that your eyelids and eyes are very central to your appearance. My main problem why i need it is that I had inner double eyelid, which is NOT visible and my eyes are super puffy and dull. What i usually do is just covering it with THICK makeup, which doesn't really solve my problem. There's a quote in chinese called "治标不治本"。My eyes looks super heavy and my eyes looks sleepy with thick liner & fake lashes. I'm really sick with heavy eyes makeup & double eyelid stickers!! 

No matter what kind of double eyelid sticker i use, it's still visible! especially when i close my eyes. Take a look at the left picture, the sticker seriously damn "potong steam" right ,lol…..

Check this out, This is how i applied my eyes makeup few years back. 

My eyes makeup is super super super thick :
Upper and lower eyeliner is a MUST + Heavy fake lashes + double eyelid stickers
*imagine going out like this everyday*

It's really really tiring…

A clearer look of my previous eyes makeup. A bit over right? hahahaha
But this is what i usually did to my eyes last time. I'm really tired of spending hours on makeup.


Basically, the whole procedure is really fast. For like 30 minutes maybe. You won't really feel the pain because your eyes is already numb during the process. You will only feel a bit sting during the moment doctor inject the medicine to your eyelid. If you want me to rate the pain level from 0-10. Hmmm, i would rate it 2/3 maybe. Basically i didn't really feel the pain because i was too busy chit-chat with Dr.Rachel, LOL. 


Stitching surgery recover faster than cutting surgery. That's the reason why i choose stitching instead of cutting. It's normal to have bruising and swelling right after the surgery, but the bruising and swelling is acceptable. As there is no cutting, you will be able to go home immediately after the procedure. I still go out as usual after the surgery, no big deal. 眼睛只是好像哭过那样而已,还是可以出门见人的。It is also advisable to get an ice pack and keep using it to bring the swelling down. Just use alcohol swap to wipe the eyelid everyday will do.

 My healing time is only 1 week plus, it was faster than i expected ;)

My recovery is quite fast because my bf got me this "fish essence". He said it's good for wound healing/ any kind of surgery. Aww, How thoughtful is him. FYI, You can find this is any pharmacy, it's only RM35 ++ if not mistaken. I drink this everyday. It helps recovery :)

Alright, i know most of you all are curious the DOWNTIME photos.
 Hopefully these will give you an idea the stages of recovery after a double eyelid surgery.
There you go !!!! More more and MORE photos !!

A photo of my BEFORE ( Without Double eyelid sticker )
My eyelid is so low and unequal, Barely see my double eyelid without the tapes right?
My eyes look really small without double eyelid right?  That's why i need a double eyelid!



Some people don't have bruising and swelling at all, it depends. But me is kinda sensitive, my eyes is a bit swelling right after the surgery. Looks sleepy and my eyelid is heavy, makes me wanna sleep.

Double eyelid is so IMPORTANT right! Now i can go out without eyeliner!

Just look at how my eyelids are healing so well and fast  :)


I'm so happy and satisfy with my double eyelid. It's so much better than before. Everything looks more natural. My eyes looks awesome in every angle, double eyelid is more define now. No more visible stickers/lace stickers/glue popping out on my eyelid anymore! No more wasting time on my double eyelid tapes, no more dirty eyelid after double eyelid glue applied. I can wake up everyday like this with this beautiful double eyelid now! This feeling is really really awesome! I'm extremely pleased. Love the results,Thank you Dr.Rachel once again !! 

I know there's a lot of clinic out there that provides cosmetic surgery nowadays. But make sure you find a good surgeon with experiences and license. It's really important to find a trustable doctor. Don't "gao gao xiu". Of course there's a reason why i choose SkinArt instead of others. Dr. Rachel is really amazing. She helped me a lot…from my acne scars skin & now my eyelid. Thanks for enhancing my appearance day by day & helps me to gain back a lil bit of my long lost confident *wink wink* She had my trust, and she definitely deserve a good review. If you are looking for a double eyelids stitching but you are not sure of where to go and who to look for, Skin Art is the place where you should go to.
