People are likely to assume that incisional double eyelid surgery would create non-natural-looking double eyelids and has a very negative impression about this procedure due to the idea of cutting off of the skin. However, a highly skilled plastic surgeon can perform the incisional technique that can create a natural result as of non-incisional double eyelid technique.
The possibility of visible scars remained after incisional double eyelid surgery is highly dependent on a plastic surgeon’s skills as well as a patient’s constitution. Therefore, you have to carefully choose a doctor that has skills and know-how on the incisional double eyelid surgery.
It is true that the incisional double eyelid surgery has a lower possibility of loosening of the fold, but it does not mean that there is no risk. If you have a natural-looking double eyelid line created by the incisional double eyelid surgery, there is a still risk of loosing of the double fold but it is just a low percentage.
It is true that a general local anesthesia for the non-incisional technique is more painful than the incisional technique. Therefore, a painless local anesthesia is used when undergoes non-incisional double eyelid surgery but not for the incisional double eyelid surgery.
