Your eyes are an essential part of your overall appearance. Asian eyelid surgery is a common procedure done to widen the eyelid opening and form a crease. Nearly 50 percent of Asian men and women are born without an eyelid crease or fold, which is called a “single eyelid.” This procedure is not as invasive as other cosmetic surgeries and is designed to create a double eyelid.

The goal of this cosmetic procedure is not to westernize your Asian look, but to form an eyelid crease (typically parallel to your eyelashes) that resembles your family members or friends.

The Asian Blepharoplasty Procedure

A small incision is made in the eyelid where the crease will be formed and excess skin tissue and fat padding are removed. The incision wound is hidden within the new fold. This eyelid procedure differs from traditional blepharoplasty because its main objective is to create an eyelid fold.

If you currently have a natural crease, you may benefit more from an eyelid lift, which can remove excess skin and reduce puffy eyelids or under-eye bags. You could also be a good candidate for a midface lift or brow lift to get rid of additional skin that may sag due to age or genetics to give you a younger look and reduce vision impairment.

Double eyelid surgery requires a skilled cosmetic surgeon such as our NYC surgeon, Dr. Pakeman, and close attention to detail to achieve your aesthetic goals. Recovery from Asian blepharoplasty is minimal, and you should see your full results within one to two months.
