There are two types of double eyelid surgery :
A simple suturing method which will leave minimal scars, however, results may not be very long lasting.
An incision can be made through the natural crease of the upper eyelids in order to create a more permanent upper eyelid crease. This method will leave more scarring but the results will be much longer lasting.
