Patients with excessive fat tissues or thick muscles may possess thick eyelids. More often than not, the eyes may look puffy and swollen if the surgery is poorly performed. Thus, moderate amount of fat and muscles should be removed on thick eyelids. Small amount of fat can be removed by non-incision methods, but incision methods would derive better result for patients having relatively thick skin and muscles. Partial or full incision methods are typically used, and our experienced surgeons determine the design by checking the amount of fat and muscle tissues, the shape of eye bone, and also type of skin.
