How Double Eyelids Skyrocketed My Confidence

Hi everyone, I’m leaving a review here in hopes that someone would benefit from it. I know any cosmetic surgery, no matter how “small” it is, is a huge deal to the one undergoing it. A lot of thought goes into the decision-making process and I hope my review will give you the confidence you need. 

Now, firstly, I’m a 44-year-old woman who has always been super minimalistic when it comes to beauty. I’ve always held on to “being natural” and I love how I’ve aged over the years. I’ve really only had one desire when it comes to physically altering my look; double eyelids. I don’t know why but it’s just a feature I absolutely adore. Every time I speak to people, my eyes are first drawn to their double eyelids. For a while, I’ve opted to use the double eyelid stickers, but in all honesty, I hated how obvious they were. Spending extra time with makeup to make it look like I had double eyelids was non-negotiable for me. I am not one to spend any more than 15 minutes on my makeup and it’s just a routine I never saw myself committing to. 

After much contemplation, I finally decided I would get double eyelid surgery. Let me tell you, the amount of time I took to research was simply excessive. I was nervous and I really didn’t want to be in one of those “surgery gone wrong” videos. I was extremely worried that getting the surgery would change my face or how I look. I was willing to spend however much it took as long as the outcome was as I desired; natural-looking, low-maintenance, and fundamentally enhanced my face structure. 

I finally settled for the Asian Blepharoplasty at Artisan Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery. The surgeon, Dr Vincent Tay, was experienced with endless success cases backing his credentials. I booked a consultation (still with some scepticism) and got the ball rolling. At the clinic, I was given 2 options, a suture blepharoplasty or an incisional blepharoplasty. I was shown some samples and the advantages of each procedure were weighed. The consultation was truly the moment I was 100% sure to commit. Speaking to Dr Vincent built the faith I needed to take a plunge and a plunge I took!

I decided I will go ahead with the incisional upper blepharoplasty. It was permanent, involved less maintenance and Dr Vincent assured me he could make it look as subtle and flattering as possible. I was informed it will take a longer downtime and I was completely comfortable as it is relatively a small price to pay for a permanent beauty enhancement procedure. After taking some measurements, I booked an appointment in the same week to get my surgery done and the rest is history!

On the day of the surgery, I was more nervous than I had anticipated to be. The nurses were such sweethearts, they really comforted me and gave me the support I needed. I was awake during the surgery as I was required to close and open my eyes throughout the surgery. Apart from emotionally being a little paranoid, the whole surgery was virtually painless! The only pain I felt was when they administered the anaesthesia but it really wasn’t “painful” per se. The surgery took approximately 50 minutes to complete but I barely felt the time passing.

I was also a little worried I might look like I was beaten up post-surgery, but let me tell you how pleasantly surprised I was! There was some swelling, so I looked like I had a rough night crying my heart out, but apart from that, there wasn’t much post-surgery bruising.

Within 3 days the swelling completely subsided and I went back to Artisan Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery for my final check. I was out and about sooner than I had anticipated and let me tell you, my confidence was just at an all-time high! Here are the pictures that truly matter: My before and after!

Double eyelid surgery transformation

This is genuinely one of the best gifts I gave myself and I’m still riding the high of being pleased with my outcome! It looks so much better than I had anticipated and it’s the perfect level of subtility. One thing I didn't expect was to look sultry, sexy and more alert, it was definitely a pleasant surprise. Everyone I’ve met since the procedure comments on how I look younger, some even said I look like I’ve lost weight and the shock on their faces when I tell them I simply have double eyelids now.  I have no idea how having double eyelids elevated my facial structure but boy am I happy! I am so happy that no one has been able to point out exactly what has changed because that’s a testament to how natural the double eyelids are on my face.

I swear by Artisan Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery, Dr Vincent Tay, the nurses, and the amazing magic that comes out of this clinic. Every woman deserves to feel her absolute best so thank you Dr Vincent Tay for elevating my confidence! If I could go back in time, I’d do it all again with lesser anxiety and more enthusiasm! I hope my review gave you the nudge to get your double eyelid, because ladies, let me tell you, you will absolutely love it!
