I'm Asian and have 1 monolid. Is scarring formed by the incision during Asian Eyelid surgery very noticeable?

Asian eyelid surgery scars
in my own practice the majority of what I do is Asian eyelid surgery
As for the incision method I tend to prefer this method over suture technique because of better reliability and long-term results. I have not found scarring to be an issue and many of my patients find it very difficult to see the incisions at all as the months go by. Certainly you can expect to have a visible incision for the first 4-6 weeks. This often is very difficult to see because you're natural crease or the crease that has been created for U hides this.
best of luck
