Buried Sutured Double Eyelid Surgery at Kat Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Vietnam Review
Although I do already have double eyelid, but I have kind of lazy eyes where the top part of the eyelid is covering a lot of my eye pupil(black part) of the eyes. So without eyeliner and eyelash extensions to lift and open up my eyes, I always look very tired because of my lazy eyes. 🙁 🙁 🙁 Over the years, my double eyelid also got less and less obvious now due to aging. *aghhhhh* I am 33 years old now and the eyes are starting to get a little droopy. I wanted an immediate eye lift and I have been thinking of getting double eyelid suture done so my double eyelid can be more obvious with more awake looking eyes.
I have been researching different places for 2 years but nothing really impresses me since the buried sutured double eyelid method is a minor surgery so usually doesn’t make a big difference when I see most of the results. Most of the doctors recommended me to do the full incision method if I want a more ‘deep set’ eyes results which means need to cut. *oh gosh* no cutting because I really don’t want to do invasive surgery for this since I am not that old yet! Maybe when I am like 50 plus and my eyes are super saggy then no choice I might consider the full incision method.
I have a few Vietnamese staffs working for me in my beauty salons and last year one of them went for buried sutured double eyelid surgery at KAT Cosmetic Surgery in Ho Chi Min Vietnam. She is around 40 year old and OMG her eyes look like ang moh(caucasian) afterwards and I thought she went for full incision double eyelid surgery method since the results was really great with big difference to her eye lift. I was really surprised when she told me it was sewed only(Buried Sutured Double Eyelid Surgery).
Me to together with 2 other Vietnamese staffs and my mum being super impressed with the results went to research more about Kat Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in HCM Vietnam.
Above is Doctor Thao on the left with her husband Doctor Khoa who used to be the head surgeon for neuro in the top hospital in Vietnam. Now they are husband and wife team (so sweet right!) running KAT Cosmetic Surgery the most popular Plastic Surgery Clinic in Vietnam with many Vietnamese celebrities visiting them. My staff Jade who went with me and my mum even saw one famous local celebrity when we were there and pointed it out to me. Below is Jade with me, she had brow lift and nose surgery done with Doctor Thao few days before me and my mum arrive in Vietnam. Can’t even tell she had surgery done on her face as no much swelling or bruising at all.
That’s why I tell you this Doctor Thao’s skills is amazing. Doctor Thao often got invited to Singapore to teach and share with local Singapore doctors about her amazing skills and techniques for the local doctor to learn from her.
Above with me is pretty Master Jade with superb skills in Semi Permanent makeup and loved by all customers at my salon Beauty Recipe.
KAT Cosmetic Surgery Clinic is located in District 1 of Ho Chi Min City Vietnam. It is a 6 storey building with full facility from surgery theatres, beds, consultation rooms, treatment rooms, waiting lounge…etc. You can see from the picture above it will be quite hard to miss the building because it is so tall compared to the rest of the shop houses around the vicinity.
I was very happy to meet Doctor Thao because she is so super friendly and down to earth. During the consultation she explained to me how the procedure will be done very clearly in good english as she used to study in Australia previously(so no need to worry about communication problem as she can understand some Chinese even).
First, she used a toothpick to create the after effect that I wanted and mark the 3 points for the thread to be sewn. Basically, she will inject anethesia on my eyelid then sew on the 3 points marked on my eyelid with the thread to create a thicker double eyelid and lift up my eyes. She say after the surgery my eyes will look bigger immediately and with application of eyeliner makeup my eyelid can still be seen! HURRAY! I was really looking forward to it.
Above is me and my mum’s photo immediately after our eyelid surgery. My mum had the Full Incision Double Eyelid Surgery because there is a lot of fats and excess skin that needed to be removed so the Buried Sutured sewing method would not have worked well for her. She is recovering really nicely too and super happy with the results.
I had the Buried Sutured Double Eyelid Surgery done.
To be honest, I was a little afraid at first at the operating theatre but the staffs there were all so nice and friendly, reassuring me it will be ok. The injecting of the anaesthesia on the eyelid is a bit of a bitch like ant bite but after that no more feeling at all throughout the whole procedure. Doctor Thao is really fast and good with her hands, in less than 10 minutes both eyes are done.
I was amazed that there is not much swelling at all after the surgery and throughout the whole recovery period. Doctor Thao told me that the Buried Sutured Double Eyelid Surgery will last around 5-6 years. Good enough for me!
Below is Day 2 photo of me with open eyes and closed eyes(you can see 3 little holes where the sewing was). These little holes will disappear in 2-3 months.
Me and my mum went back for the nurses there to clean our wound and to thank Doctor Thao for doing such a great job for us the next day. I really felt very lucky to have the opportunity to do my double eyelid suture there with Doctor Thao. I spent less than one third the price that I would have paid if I would have done it in Singapore plus a great vacation at the same time in Vietnam with shopping and enjoying delicious Vietnamese food on top of going for my eyelid surgery. Yes I paid for it(this is not a sponsored post).
Above is Day 6 taken on the plane before I left Vietnam.

It’s been a month now since the surgery. I love how my eyes looking more awake and rounder! Super duper happy with the results and the process is so quick and fuss free with minimum down time.
