The eyelids of most people with Asian ancestry have a unique feature, a lack of an upper eyelid crease that makes them appear like a double eyelid with a fold above the lashes. This facial feature typically appears in people of Asian descent.
If you’re interested, you can safely and successfully eliminate the appearance of this double eyelid through today’s oculoplastic and reconstructive surgical capabilities. Raymond Douglas, MD, PhD, is world-renowned for his Asian eyelid surgeries.
With practices in Beverly Hills and Long Beach, California, and in Shanghai, China, Dr. Douglas has the expertise and experience you can trust with your eyelid transformation process. Here’s what you should know about the potential of this cosmetic surgical procedure.
Eliminating the double eyelid
Genetics often create a particular eyelid shape in people of Asian ancestry. Without a natural crease in the upper eyelid, the upper eyelid ends up having a doubled appearance, due to the presence of a visible fold above the lash line. Asian eyelids aren’t actually doubled. In fact, the technical term for Asian-style eyelids is “monolid.”
In Asian eyelid surgery, also known as Asian blepharoplasty, Dr. Douglas transforms the appearance of your upper eyelid, and your whole eye area, creating the upper eyelid crease that you genetically lack. After Asian eyelid surgery, your eyes may look larger, or have a more open appearance.
Asian eyelid surgery can be a tricky procedure, more aesthetically challenging and fine-tuned than a traditional blepharoplasty. That’s why you want to turn to worldwide experts like Dr. Douglas for this type of procedure. With Dr. Douglas, you’re assured of a track record of aesthetics excellence, and a thorough understanding of the unique aspects of Asian anatomy.
How Asian eyelid surgery works
During an Asian blepharoplasty, Dr. Douglas makes tiny incisions to remove or reposition the excess tissue on your upper eyelid. Incisions are positioned so that scars will be minimal and naturally hidden in the new crease of your eyelids.
As part of this surgical procedure, Dr. Douglas creates a new attachment in the skin at the new fold of your upper eyelid. After your procedure, this new attachment functions similarly to a structure naturally present in Caucasian eyelids, allowing your upper eyelid tissues to fully and smoothly retract each time you open your eyes.
