Procedure - Asian Blepharoplasty

Asian blepharoplasty reshapes the skin around the eyes to create an upper eyelid with a crease when no natural crease exists. This "double eyelid surgery" transforms a "single eyelid" into a "double eyelid." Sometimes a procedure called an epicanthoplasty is performed at the same time as Asian blepharoplasty to remove the epicanthal fold of the upper eyelid that partially covers the inner corner of the eye.

Several Asian blepharoplasty techniques are available to create the double eyelid, including the full-incision, partial incision and no incision (DST) methods. Each has its advantages and applications depending on your unique anatomy and desired outcome. The specific procedure chosen depends on whether the surgeon is creating a crease, changing the height of an existing crease or completing an incomplete crease.

For example, a surgeon may use internal sutures within the eyelid to create a new, permanent crease. A different approach involves making a tiny incision where a natural crease might appear to remove a small amount of fat and muscle, thereby creating the crease. In other cases, extra skin or fat on the eyelid is removed surgically or by using a laser.

In general, Asian eyelid surgery takes about one hour to perform under local anesthesia.
