Double eyelid surgery has continued to become increasingly popular for individuals of the Asian decent around the world, and within their countries of origin. Double eyelid surgery for patients under the age of 30 is considered a cosmetic procedure that involves a procedure that is designed to create a double eyelid look for those who desire to have their eyelids appear more open, less tired, or who wish to improve the process of applying makeup to the top eyelid region. Here at Chase Lay, MD, we offer double eyelid surgery for individuals under the age of 30 who are interested in achieving their aesthetic goals.
What is Double Asian Eyelid Surgery?
The shape and anatomy of the Asian eyelid can vary when considering the epicanthal fold, amount of fat, and amount of skin around the eyes. Also known as a Asian Blepharoplasty, double eyelid surgery is designed to improve the eyelid appearance by creating a natural-looking double eyelid. This can help the eyes to appear more open for a natural shape and vibrant appearance.
How Does it Work?
Each procedure is customized and tailored to address the specific goals and eye anatomy of each patient. Following a consultation, a personalized treatment plan is created. Depending on factors such as the thickness and amount of extra skin and fat present, and the anatomy of the eyes, a non-incisional or incisional procedure is performed.
The non-incisional technique includes creating small openings in the skin. This is done so that the upper eyelid skin can be attached to the underlying muscle that performs the function of lifting the eyelid so the the skin folds inward when the eyes are open. The incisional approach is advised for patients who have excess eyelid fat. This process involves creating a tiny incision in the upper eyelid region. A small volume of fat and skin can then be removed so that the crease can be shaped and redefined. The same process is then performed on the lower eyelid.
The procedure is completed in about 1 hour as an in-office procedure under local anesthesia. There is required recovery time of about an average of one week before you can enjoy the results of your newly defined eyes.
