Minor Asian eyelid fix! If this is possible let me know!

The medial epicanthoplasty will make your eyes appear larger horizontally, but also improve the balance between the bridge of your nose and the distance between your eyes. Best luck.
What you are describing are your epicanthal folds. Fillers can do a modest job and it's usually injected onto the nose bridge rather than the brow bone area. You'd have a better and longer lasting outcome if a medial epicanthoplasty is performed. Hope that helps.

Asian epicanthal fold release
You may want to consider one of two methods that we use to achieve the effect you desire. First, and epicanthal fold release is provided through surgical flap rearrangement of the epicanthal skin. Second, volume enhancement of the nasal bridge with an injectable filler can provide a different look for both the nose and the eyes. Both of these methods have the effect of opening and widening the medial aspect of the eye fissures that may lessen the classic Asian orbital appearance. Be sure to ask to see before and after photos from a qualified surgeon.
