Asian Eyelid Surgery
Asian blepharoplasty, also known as “double eyelid surgery”, is the single most popular procedure in patients of asian decent. In contrast to caucasian eyelids, normal asian eyelid anatomy lacks a defined crease. The purpose of the procedure is to create an upper eyelid with a crease (“double eyelid”) from an eyelid without a crease (“single eyelid”).
Dr. Shifrin performs the double eyelid crease surgery for individuals:
- Wanting the formation of a crease
- Desiring a balance of uneven or assymetric creases
- Needing revision of prior unsatisfactory double eyelid surgeries
Common goals of Asian Eyelid Surgery include increasing the eyelid opening, removing excess hanging skin, repositioning and removing fat and creating a symmetric double eyelid. During your procedure, Dr.Shifrin artistically reshapes the upper eyelid to create a natural crease, adding to the beauty of the Asian Eyelid.
