Asian Eyelid Surgery
Asian eyes are distinct in their shape and structure. Some Asian eyelids only have a single fold, which can make the eyes look smaller. In some cases, the upper eyelid skin can encroach on the edge of the eyelid and eyelashes, which can impede vision. Whether it is for aesthetics or functional reasons, Asian eyelid surgery can be used to create a double upper eyelid, opening the eyes. This ethnic eyelid surgery is available through Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.
The single eyelid fold on some Asian eyes impacts many different aspects of a person’s appearance. The upper eyelid can seem to droop over the eye, making the person look tired. The eyes look smaller, impacting the balance of the facial features. Wearing eye makeup is challenging due to the shape of the upper eyelid.
The Asian eyelid surgery creates a double eyelid with the crease in the middle. This can open the eyes and create balance with the features. While the surgery can add an upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes, it will not erase evidence of ethnic or racial heritage. The goal is to create an Asian double eyelid, not a Caucasian eyelid.
How Double Eyelid Blepharoplasty Is Performed
There are many different factors to consider when performing double eyelid blepharoplasty. The height of the crease, curvature, excess skin removal and other factors need to be discussed before the surgery. There is not one look that is right for every patient. Dr. Anastasatos will take the time to discuss every detail to ensure he understands the exact expectations of his patient before he undertakes the surgery.
