What are the benefits of Asian Eyelid Surgery?
Asian eyelid surgery, also known as double eyelid surgery or Asian blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure designed to create a crease in the upper eyelid for individuals of Asian descent who are born with a monolid or a less defined eyelid crease. The surgery has gained popularity for several reasons, and some of the benefits associated with Asian eyelid surgery include:
Enhanced Eye Definition: One of the primary goals of Asian eyelid surgery is to create a natural-looking double eyelid crease, which can enhance the definition and contour of the eyes. This can create a more awake and youthful appearance.
Improved Makeup Application: Many individuals find it easier to apply makeup, especially eyeshadow and eyeliner, on a defined eyelid crease. Asian eyelid surgery can provide a more even surface for applying makeup, allowing for more creativity and versatility in makeup looks.
Increased Confidence: For individuals who desire a double eyelid crease, Asian eyelid surgery can boost self-confidence and self-esteem. It can help individuals feel more satisfied with their appearance, leading to improved overall confidence in social and professional settings.

What is the Asian Eyelid Surgery Surgical Technique?
At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we use surgical techniques that are tailored to your unique facial features and eye structure. We also select the best methods based on your desired cosmetic goals. Generally, Dr. Mang uses an incisional technique for a double eyelid procedure. This approach allows us to resize or reshape the upper eyelids and make a natural-looking crease. We can also remove any fat that causes the eyelid to look full and reduce the epicanthal fold. The epicanthal fold is the tissue located near the nasal side of your eyelid. Patients may have some fat and muscle excised to open the eyelid and enhance the structure. During your consultation, we will discuss these techniques in-depth so you feel comfortable about your surgery. Additionally, Dr. Mang can determine if you need local anesthesia or IV sedation. This will depend on the complexity of your surgery.
What should I Expect after Asian Eyelid Surgery?
Following your surgery, we will monitor you in our recovery room before sending you home to recover. You may experience some mild side effects, such as itching, dry eyes, swelling, and bruising near the eyelids. These symptoms are common and will go away within 1 – 2 weeks. You should avoid strenuous activities for the first few days. However, most patients can restart their daily routine in about 5 – 7 days after we remove the sutures. After your surgery, you should avoid contact lenses for two weeks because your eyes will be sensitive. To reduce discomfort, Dr. Mang will prescribe eye drops, and he recommends using cold compresses. Overall, it takes about 1 – 2 months to see your final results. Your eyes will look refreshed, and it can improve your vision. If you do experience some scarring, it should not be noticeable. However, most patients do not have scarring after their procedure.
