Question
Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Can I get a revision on my double eyelid surgery for scarring and to lower the crease?
scarring and double lid
Feb 24, 2020
Hi,based on your pictures, your height of the double fold is very small.  too make the height even smaller, you will need time and aging to get more skin available to bring down the double lids.  as for your scar, a revision can be done to make a cleaner line now but your fold may appear bigger.  hope this helps.dr david kahng
Is it possible for me for surgery for me to get back my monolid and release the fold crease and receive
monolids
Feb 24, 2020
Hi,i'm sorry to tell you but once a double eyelid incision has been made, going back to monolid is not possible.  over time and with aging, you can revise the double lids to make a smaller fold.  I m sorry.dr david kahng
Is it possible to get a line under my butt with an implant? How many ccs do I need?
line under my butt
Feb 6, 2020
Hibased on your pictures, you are a candidate for butt implants since you have already done a bbl and you do not have much fat to redo a bbl.  as for the gluteal crease, some patients have a more pronounced line and other do not.....it is unlikely  that you will develop a crease when doing a butt implant surgery.  the butt implant surgery will give you more projection and better shape.  I don't recommend cutting the area to give you a artificial crease.  hope this helps.david kahng md
Am I too small to size up my butt implants?
bigger implants
Feb 3, 2020
Hiif it has been at least a year from your surgery, sizing up is definitely a possibility.  you can consider getting bigger implants based on either the diameter or the height of the implant or both.  you can also have the option to create a custom implant based on your body's dimension.  I would either recommend going back to your original surgeon or another surgeon for a consultation.  hope this helps.david kahng md
Is it possible to get Asian double eyelid revision from a parallel crease to a tapered crease?
revision surgery
Feb 2, 2020
Hibased on your history and picture, it is still in the process of healing.  revision surgery is always a possibility but you need to be re evaluated close to 1 year from your surgery.  for now, I do not recommend any revision surgery. hope this helps.david kahng md
Should I consider epicanthoplasty?
epicanthoplasty
Jan 27, 2020
Hi based on your picture, you have a mild Mongolian fold on the left than the right.  based on the picture, I would say not needed and just the double eyelid surgery but looks like you may have some ptosis.  it would be best to get an evaluation real time with a plastic surgeon who do a lot of Asian eyes.  hope this helps.david kahng md
Should I do both double eyelid and epicanthoplasty?
eye symmetry
Jan 19, 2020
Hi
based on your picture, you are a candidate for Asian double eyelid surgery to give you more symmetry. probably the best technique will be the open incision. as for the epicanthoplasty, you are a candidate as well. I would recommend the "magic" epicanthoplasty/minimal scar/rotational technique to minimize and hide the scar in your epicanthus. epicanthoplasty is give you a wider eye(increasing the east west direction and not the north south direction. ...
Am i a good candidate for an alar base surgery?
wide base
Jan 19, 2020
Hi
based on your picture, I don't think your base I wide. I would not recommend a weir excision. as for the thickness of your alar, there is no surgical treatment to "thin" the ala. for Asians, it is difficult to just do a tip platy because the bridge is also low or "short"....with the picture it is difficult to give you any recommendations because I can not see the whole nose. sometimes if you have not support at the tip like most Asians, ear cartilage is...
Can I achieve my rhinoplasty goals? Ethnic South/nose Indian nose
ethnic nose shape
Jan 19, 2020
Hi
based on your pictures, I believe the ones with the covered eyes are yours and the one at the end are pictures of what you want to achieve?? you are a good candidate for an Asian rhinoplasty vs Caucasian rhinoplasty. if you feel your bridge or starting point is too low, that area can be augmented and the tip reduced and refined but not give you a "pinched look". I would recommend you see a plastic surgeon who does more Asian rhinoplasty for an evaluation. hope this...
44 years old, 5'3", 126 lbs. Am I a good candidate for BBL?
bbl
Jan 15, 2020
Hi,
it would help if I could know your height and weight but based on your pictures, difficult to assess how much fat you have enough to do a bbl.....everyone has fat but you need a lot to show a difference in your butt volume and shape. ave volume to each buttock is usually 600-1000 cc of pure fat. higher volume is necessary because 50% of the amount transferred usually survive. hope this helps. I would recommend for you to go see a plastic surgeon for a consultation...
Options for larger eyelid margin after double eyelid surgery?
double eyelid size
Jan 15, 2020
Hi
based on your pictures, when you smile, your muscles around the eye will distort the double eyelids. when you are not animating, your double fold is larger and I do not see ptosis in your right eye....you have different eye sizes so that is not correctable with surgery. to increase your fold size when you are animating, recommendations to limit that is either to do botox which is temporary or surgically treat with a brow lift. if any surgical revision is done with...
Am I a good candidate for double eyelid surgery?
am i a good candidate for double eyelid surgery
Jan 15, 2020
Hi
based on your picture, your asymmetry is not significant and most people have asymmetry to their eyes and face. as for Asian double lid surgery, you are a good candidate. there are many different techniques so I would recommend you go see a plastic surgeon who does a lot of Asian double lid surgery to discuss your options. hope this helps.

david kahng md

Is revision necessary due to asymmetry to double eyelid and Ptosis correction?
post op assymmetry
Jan 15, 2020
Hi,
from your picture, your results are very good. being 2.5 months post op, you will have some changes still happening with your scar outside and inside. with a closer look, your right fold maybe slightly bigger than the left but not noticeable. to give you reassurance, your results are good so at current time, I would not recommend any revisions but if a revision is needed, I usually recommend waiting a year from surgery.
david kahng md
Will my eyelid crease go down and when can I expect it to look more natural?
double eyelid shape
Sep 9, 2019
Hi,
based on your comment, it should now be 4 months from you surgery. the picture you submitted at 3 weeks post op should now be very different. you still have 2 more months for further subtle shape changes and it will ultimately settle to final shape in 1 year from surgery. hope this helps.
dr david kahng
Can I do the Asian double eyelid surgery twice to revise asymmetry?
revision surgery
Sep 9, 2019
Hi,
after reviewing your picture, your right eyelid crease is slightly larger than the left one. it is possible to revise your crease height but you need to wait at least 1 year from your surgery to allow scar maturation. each time you do surgery there are risks and asymmetry of the fold is a risk. it would be best to see your plastic surgeon or another plastic surgeon for evaluation. hope this helps.
