Cosmetic Changes

Asian Eyelid Surgery

Asian Eyelid Surgery, also referred to as Asian blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure performed to create a pretarsal crease in the upper eyelid which is normally absent from birth in people of Asian origin.
The lack of a pretarsal crease may cause an anaesthetic appearance of puffy upper eyelids and a tired look. Some individuals may also complain of difficulty in application of eye makeup. Double eyelid surgery gives your eyes a brighter look and also makes the application of eye makeup easier.

Treatment

How is double-eyelid surgery performed?

Asian double eyelid surgery involves placement of a fold that is more or less parallel to the lash line of the upper eyelid. In the process, a small amount of fat may be removed so as to create the crease. Then the new fold will be sutured into the eyelid and will become a permanent part of the eyelid. The surgery is done under local anaesthesia as this allows the patient to be awake and hold the eyelid in place. A sedative will be given to make you comfortable throughout the procedure. The surgical procedure usually lasts about one hour.

Recovery of double eyelid surgery

Recovery of double eyelid surgery is usually between 7-10 days with swelling and bruising although this can be more or less depending on the individual’s age and health. It is important to rest after surgery taking care not to do too much strenuous activity in your post operative days.
