Double Eyelids vs. Monolids

Everyone’s eyelid shape is unique, with varying sizes, shapes, and skin elasticity. There’s no reason to think one eyelid shape is superior to another, but each type can pose different challenges when it comes to applying makeup and reducing the signs of aging. Learn the difference between double eyelids and monolids and how cosmetic procedures can help maintain a more youthful appearance.

What Are Monolids?

Monolids, or epicanthic folds, describe an eyelid shape that doesn’t contain a crease between the brow area and eyelashes. This feature is commonly found in people with East Asian ancestry and has also been observed in other ethnicities. Some people with larger eyelid hoods can appear to have monolids, and these are known as hooded monolids. Sometimes people confuse monolids with ptosis, which is a condition characterized by drooping of the upper eyelid. However, these terms are not directly related. Though monolids are less common in the Western world, they are completely natural and do not reflect any sort of health issue.

What Are Double Eyelids?

Double eyelids are characterized by the presence of a supratarsal eye crease. The division of the eyelid into two sections is why this shape is called a double eyelid. In general, double eyelids tend to look heavier than monolids. Double eyelids also tend to offer a larger canvas for eye makeup, allowing for popular makeup looks like the “cut crease.”

Benefits of an Eyelid Lift Procedure

An eyelid lift can help address deflated, sagging eyelid skin that loses volume over time. Also, this procedure can help people with monolids achieve an eyelid crease if they prefer having one for aesthetic reasons.

Before choosing to undergo this or any other surgical procedure, potential patients should be nonsmokers who are in good overall health with no life-threatening illnesses or medical conditions. In addition, candidates should have healthy, realistic goals for their surgery.
