Asymmetry of Upper Eyelid Folds
When you have a well defined fold on one side only, my recommendations are as follows: 1 If you like the side with the fold, then consider doing the double eyelid surgery on the other side only. 2 If you desire to change the size or the shape of the fold, then consider doing the procedure on both sides. 3 Use of tape may have a temporary benefit but I wouldn't recommend patients to use it for a long time as this may damage the skin.
Tough to get the same look with tape
The "double eyelid" appearance is caused by the INSIDE of the eyelid being more firmly attached to the underlying muscle. Some people of asian ancestry have eyelids (or eyelid) that move more freely. It an be difficult to create the appearance that the INSIDE of the lid is attached to muscle by putting tape on the OUTSIDE. This affect is tough to create with tape on both eyes, even more difficult to match an eye that naturally has a double lid. Eyelid surgery can recreate the actual muscle attachments, and skin can be removed to create symmetry if needed. Bryan Rolfes, MD
