Asian Eyelid Surgery

  • Nearly 50% of Asians are born with eyes that have "single eyelids," in which case there is no crease that forms in the top lids when the eyes are open
  • Some also have extra skin and fat, which creates a hooded look
  • Double eyelid surgery or Asian blepharoplasty creates a natural crease in the eyelid that appears when the eyes are open, but not when they are closed
  • If you already have a fold (crease), and if you are happy with its position and shape, you may be a candidate for a classic blepharoplasty
