In brief: Some

Some individuals who pursue this surgery have a double eyelid and some do not, so there is a large variation in the crease position (double eyelid size) of patient's seeking this surgery.
There are several methods to change the eylid shape and position that are commonly used. This is a very commonly performed surgery and most patient's have excellent outcomes. The risks are the same as for any surgery; risk of anesthesia, bleeding (rare), and infection. You should see a board certified plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon for this procedure to discuss your options.
