Asian Double Eyelid Surgery
Commonly the Asian eye has no visible fold. The essential goal of Asian eye enhancement is a double eyelid conforming to an individual’s concept of beauty.
The procedure can be done under local anaesthestics, commonly under gentle sedation.
Double eyelid surgery can vary from a simple suture to a more complex procedure depending on the individual anatomy and requirements of the patient. Some patients may wish to create an eyelid crease (from no crease) and this sometimes can be done with simple suture technique (or commonly called “no cut” technique); while other patients may wish to change from “low” crease to “high” crease.
Surgery done through a skin incision is more likely to create a long-lasting, if not permanent, crease. While simple suturing techniques are still practiced widely, the crease may change with time.
Attempting to “westernize” the lids may not suit all patients; special consideration at the time of consultation should be directed to determining proper crease height and contour.
As a rule, Asian eyelid skin may stay swollen for a slightly longer time interval (2-6 months), especially if surgery is required to correct muscle ptosis. The crease position and shape will vary as healing progresses and not reach its final configuration for six months or more.
Cost: Average fee is $2500 (all inclusive – includes surgery and twilight sedation). Initial obligation consultation fee $65.
