They can fall into this category but it depends on what your particular anatomy is. You can be asian and have a crease that could be close to caucasian eyelids. And there are caucasians that can have asian elements.

Southeast Asians get Asian eyelid surgery

+1

Asian eyelid surgery discribes surgery that defines the upper crease line. When Asian patients undergo upper eyelid surgery, a method to reinforce the crease is required, even when there is a pre-existing crease. Many Southeast Asians have pre-existing creases or large preexisting creases. Nevertheless, any surgery in this area would require an Asian eyelid crease surgery in order to obtain a predictable outcome.
