I'm an asian woman who always had a double lid on the left eye and a single lid on the right eye. This looked unsightly in pictures because my right eye would always appear smaller, plus I couldn't wear makeup because it would look very uneven. I thought about eyelid surgery for at least 5 years while exhausting other methods such as eyelid tape and glue.
The surgery took only 15 minutes. My eye was purple and swollen for the next few days, but after a week and a half my eye was totally normal (eating pineapple and getting lots of sunshine helps with healing bruises).
The results are spectacular. My eyes now look even, I can play with makeup to my hearts content. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from me because I have always been self conscious about my eyes.
There is very little pain involved and the healing process is fast with this technique, and there is no visible scar; the eye looks very natural.
So if you have a special case like me whereby one eye is a different size than the other, Dr. Lee can help you fix the sizes.
My Doctor: Charles S. Lee, MD
I found about Dr. Lee from Tyra Banks. I was researching very heavily into eyelid surgery and watched many youtube videos where he was featured. After consulting with plastic surgeons in my area, I decided against having local doctors do the surgery because they were not experienced with asian eyes. I opted for well known surgeons in California, researched their websites, and finally decided on Dr. Lee. In November 2012, I had my surgery done at his Beverly Hills clinic. The technique used was his own unique DST. I really recommend Dr. Lee, everything went perfectly, he is clearly knowledgeable, is very courteous, and explains the process so easily.
