What Can Asian Eyelid Surgery Achieve?

Asian eyelid surgery, also known as double eyelid surgery or Asian blepharoplasty, is a specialized procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the eyelids in individuals of Asian descent. Asian eyelid surgery focuses on creating a natural-looking upper eyelid fold that complements the individual’s facial features. Dr. Joseph J. Rousso, MD, FACS, specializes in Asian eyelid surgery, helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals with precision and expertise.

One of the distinguishing features of Asian eyelids is the absence of a defined upper eyelid crease, known as a supratarsal crease, which is common in individuals of Caucasian descent. Instead, many Asian individuals have a single eyelid or a less prominent eyelid fold, which can impact the appearance of the eyes and contribute to a “hooded” or “sleepy” appearance.

Goals of Asian Eyelid Surgery

Asian eyelid surgery aims to address these anatomical variations and create a natural-looking upper eyelid fold that enhances the eyes’ appearance while preserving ethnic identity. By carefully sculpting the eyelid tissue and creating a well-defined crease, Dr. Rousso can achieve the following transformative outcomes:

Creation of a Defined Upper Eyelid Crease

One of the primary goals of Asian eyelid surgery is to create a supratarsal crease that defines the upper eyelid and adds dimension to the eyes. The placement and height of the crease are customized to each patient’s unique facial anatomy and aesthetic preferences, ensuring natural-looking results that harmonize with the overall facial appearance.

Enhancement of Eye Contours

By creating a subtle upper eyelid fold, Asian eyelid surgery can enhance the contours of the eyes, making them appear larger, more alert and youthful. The newly defined eyelid crease can also improve the visibility of the eyelid platform and eyelashes, creating a more open and expressive eye appearance.

Correction of Hooded or Droopy Eyelids

Many Asian individuals struggle with hooded or droopy eyelids, which can obscure the eyes and convey a tired or aged appearance. Asian eyelid surgery can address these concerns by lifting and reshaping the eyelid tissue, resulting in a more rejuvenated and refreshed look.

Restored Symmetry and Balance

In some cases, asymmetry between the two eyelids can detract from facial harmony and balance. Asian eyelid surgery can help restore symmetry by creating consistent upper eyelid folds that complement the natural contours of the eyes and face.

Customized Approach and Natural-Looking Results

Dr. Joseph J. Rousso, MD, FACS, takes a personalized approach to Asian eyelid surgery, ensuring that each patient receives tailored treatment based on their unique anatomical characteristics and aesthetic goals. By meticulously planning and executing the procedure, Dr. Rousso achieves natural-looking results that enhance the eyes’ appearance while preserving the patient’s ethnic identity.

Asian eyelid surgery offers transformative benefits for individuals seeking to enhance the appearance of their eyelids and achieve a more vibrant and youthful look. With Dr. Joseph J. Rousso, MD, FACS, as your trusted surgeon, you can rest assured that you are in expert hands.
