Asian double eyelid surgery (Asian Blepharoplasty) is one of the most common procedures performed at Wave Plastic Surgery. Our specialists use years of combined experience to help Asian men and women meet their aesthetic eyelid goals.

The Procedure

The goal of an Asian double eyelid surgery is to accentuate the eyes. The procedure is performed by making a discrete incision along the upper eyelid and manipulating the skin and underlying tissues to form a crease. Most procedures can be safely done under intravenous (IV) sedation and local anesthesia. Patients are completely comfortable and pain-free during surgery, but also awake enough to work with the surgeon to determine the desired outcome of the upper eyelid fold. This type of patient-focused, team approach allows the surgeon to make sure the shape and size of the eyes remain symmetrical and patients love their results.

Recovery and Results*

Asian double eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. Patients are able to be driven home by a family member or friend after the effects of IV sedation wear off. Results are seen as post-surgical swelling decreases. Total recovery time is usually around two weeks. The final result of the procedure is slightly modified eyelids that accentuate and enhance the appearance of the eyes. Patients’ eyes look less tired, brighter, and less puffy after the procedure.

Are You Right for Asian Double Eyelid Surgery?

There are several aspects to consider when determining if Asian double eyelid surgery is the right treatment option for a patient. Some of the most important considerations include the following:

  • The size, crispness, and depth of the supratarsal show (the top corner of the eyelid)
  • The amount of fat around the eyelids
  • The outer edge of the eyelid fold
  • The strength of the eyelid muscles
