Many men and women of Asian descent have “single” eyelids, meaning they have no visible crease or fold in the upper eyelid. Asian blepharoplasty is a procedure that creates a crease in the upper eyelid that can make the eyes appear larger, brighter and more defined. This type of eyelid surgery is one of the most widely performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the world.
- An incision is made in the upper eyelid, removing excess tissue (which may include skin and fat)
- This incision is then sealed in such a manner that it creates a crease through a surgical technique designed to complement the shape of they eyes and keep them in balance with the rest of the face
- This procedure can also correct asymmetric upper eyelid creases to achieve a more symmetrical, balanced appearance
