About 50% of the Asian population are born with a single upper eyelid that does not have the crease to make it a double eyelid. While this is normal, some individuals with a single upper eyelid prefer the appearance of the double eyelid. Through eyelid plastic surgery, or blepharoplasty, a single upper eyelid can be transformed into a double lid with the crease. Eden Plastic Surgery Institute offers Asian eyelid surgery to create wider eyes at our medical clinic in Miami.
The goal with Asian eyelid blepharoplasty is to create a more attractive eye shape. Some Asian eyelids, especially single eyelids without a crease or fold, can appear smaller or droopy. There can be excess skin that can affect the appearance and even interfere with eyesight. By creating a fold or crease in the upper eyelid and removing excess skin, the eye can appear more open. The goal is to create an Asian double-eyelid appearance that balances the eyes within the rest of the facial features.
Adding a crease or fold to a single Asian eyelid can make eyes wider and look more awake. The idea is to create an Asian eye shape with a double eyelid, not a Caucasian or Westernized eye shape. Dr. Ali Charafeddine is a double board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in creating natural, well-balanced results through cosmetic surgery. He takes the time with each patient to determine the best solution to achieve the eye shape they desire that will retain harmony and balance with their facial features.
