Asian eyelid surgery—also known as double eyelid surgery or Asian blepharoplasty—is performed on men and women of Asian decent who were born without an eyelid crease or fold. This cosmetic procedure creates a double eyelid by surgically forming a crease and removing or rearranging skin, fat and/or muscle within the eyelid area. When performed by a skilled cosmetic surgeon, Asian eyelid surgery results can last a lifetime.

There are certain factors to consider when it comes to the lasting results of a blepharoplasty procedure such as double eyelid surgery including:

  • The type of procedure: Asian eyelid surgery can be performed with a non-incision method, a partial incision method or a full incision method. The non-incision option offers a faster recovery time, but the results may not last as long as a surgically formed crease. The right procedure for you will depend on the thickness of your eyelids among other attributes.
  • The aging process: Aging typically causes wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyes and could make your eyelids begin to droop and cover your eyelid crease. In this instance, additional surgery such as a brow lift could help you appear younger and maintain your double eyelid.
  • Your recovery: The healing process is one of the most important aspects of any cosmetic surgery. Following post-surgery instructions for your blepharoplasty recovery will ensure you reach your desired look with results that last.

Your results from an Asian blepharoplasty should last a lifetime as long as you choose the right cosmetic surgeon for the procedure and follow all pre-op and post-op instructions. Dr. Pakeman can go over your eyelid surgery options during your consultation at our office in NYC.
