An Asian eyelid lift, also known as a double eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the upper eyelid to create a crease. It is often performed on people of East Asian descent. The procedure is performed by making an incision in the upper eyelid, then removing or repositioning excess fatty tissue and skin to create a crease. The goal of the surgery is not to “Westernize” the eyelids, but instead to accentuate and enhance Asian eyelid ethnic features.

Dr. Francine Vagotis is a board-certified female facial plastic surgeon with over 30 years of experience and specializes in facial rejuvenation procedures. Contact us for a complimentary consultation.

Frequently asked questions about asian eyelid lift surgery.

What Are The benefits of Asian Eyelid lift surgery?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Vagotis will listen to you closely and document exactly what you want from your blepharoplasty. Patients who opt for an Asian eyelid lift typically have a weak or absent pre-tarsal crease, resulting in a single lid appearance. The goal of the surgery is not to “Westernize” the eyelids, but instead to accentuate and enhance Asian eyelid ethnic features.

What is the Recovery?

The recovery time for Asian eyelid surgery is typically about one week. During this time, you can expect some bruising, swelling, and redness around the eyes. Most of these symptoms should subside within 3-5 days. It is important to keep the area clean and dry, and to avoid touching or rubbing the eyes. You may also experience some discomfort and tightness, but this should go away after a few days. After the first week, you should be able to resume most normal activities. It may take up to two or three weeks for the swelling and bruising to completely disappear.
