The eyelid can vary in shape. For those of Asian descent, you may have either a single or double eyelid, depending on your genetics. The crease in the middle of the eyelid creates the “double” eyelid, which is missing for about 50% of those of Asian descent. Asian eyelid surgery can transform a single eyelid to a double eyelid to create a more open eye appearance, and it is available at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan.

There are many reasons both women and men desire to undergo Asian eyelid surgery. The small crease in the upper eyelid that creates a double-eyelid can have a significant impact on the appearance of the eye. Without the crease, the eye can appear smaller, and there are less variations available for enhancing with cosmetics. Adding a crease can open up the eyes, making them look more alert and youthful. Some individuals with a single upper eyelid may have an excess skin fold that impairs their vision. An upper eyelid lift can reshape the lid, remove extra skin and improve vision.

Asian Eyelid Lift or Blepharoplasty

The goal of Asian blepharoplasty is to create a beautiful eye shape that is balanced and natural-appearing. It is important to not lose the ethnicity of the eye shape, and only adding a crease or performing an eyelid lift to improve the overall appearance. Dr. Lesley Rabach is a highly experienced facial plastic surgeon who specializes in various types of blepharoplasty. She has achieved exquisite results for her patients desiring eyelid lifts or Asian eyelid surgery, improving the shape and function of the eyes.

We can schedule a personal consultation with world-renowned facial surgeon Dr. Lesley to discuss your procedure and determine the best solution to create the eye shape you desire.
