Take your time for those new eyes Filipina
bigger may or may not be better. If you're in high school get a consult, get some info but think it over. You may see yourself a bit different in the future. I doubt you're trying to look less Asian, maybe just different-Asian. :) anyhow, incision technique usually affords the most change but suture technique sometimes works for the right surgical candidate.

Westernization of Asian Eyelids
In general, westernization of Asian eyelids is possible if desired. This is usually done by creating a supratarsal crease at the time of eyelid surgery.
To be sure what might be helpful for you, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.

Making Asian eyes look more Western
Previously, aggressive surgery was performed to completely change the appearance of the Asian eyelid. Now it is more common to make subtle changes that increase the eye opening ,but maintain Asian feature. I would consult with a surgeon who specializes Asian blepharoplasty. Safety comes first.
