Hiding the fold in Asian eyelid surgery
It certainly would depend on your anatomy and goals as well as a few other factors but creating a very low crease that is almost undetectable is usually possible. I had a Korean patient recently ask me for a crease that was not visible when looking forward but only when looking down. She essentially said she wanted to look no different but still one of decrease and this was achievable. This is not that same patient but I will attach an example of a case that shows some very subtle results. You can use incision technique or suture technique to reach your goals but I tend to prefer incision technique. Make sure you get a consultation with someone who clearly performs Asian eyelid surgery very regularly. I think cases in which the patient wants to look natural have to be approached with care and planning so as not to create a result that is too dramatic. You can always do a little more surgery but if you go to far it's very hard to reverse it.
