What is Asian Eyelid Surgery?

A common genetic feature in the Asian population is the lack of a supratarsal crease or a “single eyelid.” Asian eyelid surgery can be done to create a double lid which can helps improve peripheral vision, create a double eyelid, and provide a more youthful appearance. Double eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, is an excellent option for those looking to recreate their eyelid shape while gaining a more vibrant and youthful appearance around the eyes.

Asian Eyelid Surgery Can Help:

  • Create a double eyelid
  • Improve issues with your vision, including peripheral vision
  • Rejuvenate aged or tired-looking eyes

Combining Procedures with an Asian Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, or a blepharoplasty, already works by tightening muscle and loose skin around the eye area. While it does address most of the wrinkles around the eyes, our patients may see a more enhanced result when it is done in conjunction with laser resurfacing. In this procedure, Dr. Cole expertly ablates a fine layer of skin to help further reverse signs of aging in fine lines and additional uneven textures.

A tired or aged appearance can sometimes not only be caused by drooping in the eyelids, but also in the eyebrows themselves. Patients can often revitalize their appearance even further by combining a blepharoplasty with a brow lift. An added benefit of a brow lift includes softening lines in the forehead and between the eyebrows.

What Happens During the Procedure?

The Asian eyelid surgery is performed under local anesthesia or light sedation anesthesia. This depends on the patient, the number of procedures being performed at once, and what was discussed during the consultation. Once sedated, Dr. Cole makes incisions along the existing crease of the upper eyelids. This provides access to the underlying muscles and fat tissue. The incisions created in the new double eyelid hid well within the folds of the skin. The strategically placed incisions ensure that scarring is minimal. If taken care of properly, they will fade over time. The procedure is completed in an outpatient facility, and patients can usually leave the same day.

What Is the Downtime for a Double Eyelid Surgery?

After surgery, you may feel some mild to moderate pain, swelling, bruising, and blurred vision. You also may experience watering eyes, light sensitivity, double vision, and puffiness. These symptoms are normal and will subside within a few days or weeks if they do not, contact our office for an appointment so Dr. Cole can assess your healing.

The first week after surgery, you’ll want to focus primarily on resting and recuperating. You’ll also want to keep your face from directly contacting anything. Patients who follow Dr. Cole’s aftercare guidelines return to work and get back to most of their normal daily activities within one week. It’s essential to get help after surgery with your daily tasks, as you’ll need to focus on recuperation. While you can go back to your daily activities within one to two weeks, however, full healing may take longer. You will have several follow-up appointments, so Dr. Cole can monitor your progress and healing. Follow Dr. Cole’s instructions for healing, and you should be back to your routine in no time.

How Long Will the Double Eyelid Last?

Depending on the specific patient, how they take care of themselves and their skin, and genetic factors can impact how long the double eyelid will last. For most, it will last a lifetime. Taking good care of your skin, using SPF, eating a balanced diet, and getting regular exercise can all help with the elasticity and youthfulness of your skin. Pay close attention to caring for your incisions around your eyes. Patients often report that they are more confident about their appearance and have a significant increase in their self-esteem.
