Asian Eyelid Surgery
Some Asian women and men want more defined eyes with an upper eyelid crease, while still preserving their ethnic appearance. Loose or heavy upper eyelid skin and puffy under-eye bags can make the eyes appear small and cause difficulties with applying eye makeup. Our patients in the New York City area choose Asian eyelid surgery to enhance the unique, natural beauty of their eyes.
Every year, thousands of Asian women and men choose eyelid surgery to attain a more vibrant, refreshed, and youthful appearance. There are numerous differences between Caucasian and Asian eyes. Most of them are unseen muscular and other underlying tissue differences, such as the increased fat content and somewhat thicker skin of Asian eyelids. Often the crease of the upper eyelids is incomplete or non-existent, allowing the skin to hang over the lashes and conceal much of the eye.
