Why Asian Eyelid Surgery is Different
Asian eyelids have anatomical features that tend to minimize the natural crease that forms in other ethnicities. The simplicity of Asian eyelids are beautiful, but sometimes the lack of definition within the lid crease creates a sleepy appearance.
Many people look to eyelid surgery for a younger appearance. However, with Asian eyelid surgery patients are hoping to achieve a more dramatic and energetic look, so it's not necessarily a more youthful appearance they're seeking. A typical Asian eyelid crease is lower than and not as defined as those in other ethnicities. Additionally, the shape of the eyelid crease may be different and have a greater effect on the overall esthetic appearance. Surgical goals and techniques are much different in regards to Asian eyelid surgery. Because of this, Dr. Kevin McBride evaluates the specific anatomy of each patient and discusses their overall goals in great detail with each patient.
If the upper eyelid crease is incomplete or non-existent, a small reduction in the upper eyelid skin is necessary and very precise surgery can create a fresh and energetic looking upper eyelid.
