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


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.
