Asian Blepharoplasty: What You Need to Know
Asian blepharoplasty, also referred to as Asian eyelid surgery, involves the creation of a double eyelid fold – a common facial feature in Asian cultures. During an Asian blepharoplasty procedure, a surgeon sutures the eyelid or makes a small incision in the eyelid’s natural crease. A typical Asian blepharoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. It may also be performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures.
The recovery time following an Asian blepharoplasty procedure is usually minimal. Most Asian eyelid surgery patients can return to work, school or other everyday activities within about two days of treatment. Asian blepharoplasty patients may experience swelling in the initial days after surgery. Also, most Asian blepharoplasty patients fully recover within about two weeks of treatment.
Are You a Good Candidate for Asian Blepharoplasty Surgery?
Asian blepharoplasty surgery is intended to help Asian patients maintain their ethnic identity. The Asian upper eyelid crease runs close to the eyelashes and gets larger as it approaches the midpoint of the pupil; at this point, the crease runs parallel to the eye. Comparatively, a non-Asian upper eyelid crease runs parallel to the lid margin. It is typically larger than the Asian eyelid crease, too.
