Highly unpredictable and think about long term
Hi there. Greetings from the UK. I've been asked by patients with Occidental eyelids if I'd perform surgery to make them Oriental. Yes it is possible but highly unpredictable. Theoretically you'd need ablation of your own natural crease, downward herniation of your orbital fat to try and prevent reattachment of your own natural higher crease and possible reformation of a new lower surgical Oriental configuration skin crease. Although all theoretically possible it's not the most predictable with a significant risk of asymmetry and long term disappointment. I personally wouldn't be comfortable with performing any surgery which changes one's ethnicity and I think most reputable surgeons would feel the same. Best Wishes. David
Not even possible-please don't destroy your eyelids trying to achieve this.
