Asian Eyelid Surgery
For patients of Asian descent who lack defined eyelid creases, Dr. Farzaneh will commonly perform eyelid surgery to create a prominent fold in each of the upper eyelids, resulting in a brighter and more appealing expression.
What is Asian Eyelid Surgery?
Asian Eyelid Surgery (double eyelid surgery), reshapes the skin of the upper eyelid to manifest a deeper and a slightly higher crease.
The structural component of Asian and Caucasian eyelids are the same, however the attachment points may create varying crease length and depth in the upper eyelid. Approximately half the Asian population lack the double-fold look. This may cause narrowing of the eye aperture or cause difficulty with application of eyeliners.
Although, some refer to this as a ‘Westernization’ type of cosmetic procedure, if done conservatively and selectively, it will preserve the native ethnicity and will not alter the beautiful exotic Asian look.
When you decide to undergo Asian eyelid surgery with Dr. Farzaneh, you will be given the option of two distinct eyelid creases:
- The inside fold. This option begins at the inner corner of the eye, before fanning out away from the upper lash line.
- The outside fold. This option also begins at the inner corner of the eye, but remains parallel to the lash line.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Farzaneh will advise on which crease will look the most natural based on your facial structure, cosmetic goals and ethnic heritage.
