If you use adhesive tape or glue to create double eyelids, stop using them at least two weeks prior as it can cause complications during surgery.

Basic Preparation

FACE
  • Remove any face makeup and ensure cleanliness
  • Avoid accessories (jewels)

    we recommend not wearing them for 2-3 weeks prior.
