Single eyelids are a type of eyelid that does not have a visible crease or fold in the eyelid. They are also known as monoliths or hooded eyelids. This feature is most commonly found among people of Asian descent, but can also occur in other ethnicities.
Single eyelids can have a unique appearance and can make the eyes look more almond-shaped. However, some people may feel self-conscious about their single eyelids and may wish to create the appearance of a crease or fold in the eyelid through makeup techniques or cosmetic surgery.
Double eyelids, also known as upper eyelid creases, are a physical characteristic in which a visible fold appears on the upper eyelid when the eye is open.
The benefits of having double eyelids can vary depending on the individual and cultural context, but here are some general advantages that are often associated with this feature:
In our clinic, we first consult with our patients to make sure they are suitable for the procedure. We discuss the detail of double eyelid sutures and the specific benefits a particular patient might expect to see.

Our doctors will discuss with you what you want to achieve with your procedure and make sure you are a good candidate for a double eyelid suture.
Most importantly, we want you to feel comfortable and safe during your procedure with us and ensure that you are satisfied with us. If you are interested in making an appointment, or if you have any other questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation.
