The eyes are the windows to the soul, as the saying goes. As it’s often the first thing people notice about your face, a small change to the eyes can have a drastic effect on your appearance.
Eyelifts can remove the saggy, droopy skin around the eyes that accumulated due to aging, creating a more youthful and refreshed look. Eyelid surgery can also make the eyes look bigger or create double eyelids, both of which are particularly popular amongst Asian patients. But it’s important to note that eyelid surgeries will not remove crows’ feet or wrinkles, nor will they get rid of dark circles under the eyes.
Eyelid surgeries involve either the upper eye, the lower eye or both. Our doctors will advise you on what procedure you’ll need for the results that you want.

What should you discuss with your doctor?
Before your surgery, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon. It is important to be open and honest with them during this time, regarding your concerns and expectations of the results. They will tell you everything you want to know.
Aside from the results, you should also be fully honest about your medical history. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure and/or a history of heart disease, this surgery may be unsuitable for you. You’ll also need to abstain from smoking, alcohol as well as certain drugs and supplements prior to your surgery.
Recovery from eyelid surgery
Your eyes may experience bruising and swelling for 10-14 days, which may be alleviated with ointment and cold compresses. You may also experience minor soreness and pain, and your doctor can prescribe you medication for this.
Be gentle with your surgical incisions, and do not subject them to excessive force, motion or abrasion. You may return to your normal routine within a few days of your surgery, but do avoid strenuous physical activity and heavy lifting for two to three weeks.
Contact your surgeon or seek medical help immediately in the event of shortness of breath, chest pain or irregular heartbeat. These are rare but possible complications of eyelid surgery, which is generally an entirely safe procedure.
On the whole, your healing process should be fast and worry-free if you practice a proper diet, get enough rest and adhere to your doctor’s instructions.
What can you expect from your eyelid surgery?
Within a few weeks, you’ll be able to see the final results of your procedure. However, the incision lines may take up to a year to fully heal. Once they do, they will be hardly noticeable. In rare occasions, the result you want may take more than one procedure to fully refine. But once achieved, the result will be permanent. As you age, take precautions with sun protection to maintain the results.

I can’t say enough good things about this company. My consultation with the doctor was so thorough and he gave me so much information and so many options that I couldn’t be more delighted. I’ve been coming to Bangkok every year for 16 years and I’ve been to many different hospitals and clinics and this is by far the best one I’ve found. I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else in future.
My friend recommended me this company, he was a previous patient. Indeed! They are very efficient with their response to my queries and answered most of my questions quickly! The clinic is very comfortable and calming. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Came for Miradry today, doctor explained well every procedure and side effects. I didn’t make a wrong choice!

I found this place very professional, friendly and reasonable priced, I will definitely recommend this company to many of my friends in my country!!
I have had a chance to liposuction my arms + back wing. The atmosphere of liposuction is not as scary as it is thought. The surgery room looks very clean and the 2 nurses who are assistant doctor are also very professional... It's very high-quality medicine. The pain after was gone immediately. No pain, no pain at all….
