With most Asians being born with only single eyelids, double eyelids surgery is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. By undergoing double eyelid surgery, it adds a fold or crease to the upper eyelid, and by creating a fold or moving it higher, it will give the eyelid a more beautiful appearance which is what most ladies desire. Before you go for this procedure, here are some 15 questions you should be asking yourself and the plastic surgeon.
