Asian Eyelid Surgery Can Refine Facial Features
Double eyelid surgery, often referred to as Asian eyelid surgery, is a common procedure conducted around the eyelid to give the patient a double eyelid, to remove excess skin, and to give the eye a more open look. The procedure can also enhance the aesthetics of your face, improving overall symmetry. Dr. Suzanne W. Yee is a highly skilled surgeon who has helped many patients experience their desired appearance with Asian eyelid surgery at her Little Rock, AR, office.
What is Asian Eyelid Surgery?
Also known as a double blepharoplasty, Asian eyelid surgery has gained popularity in recent years. The procedure is commonly performed for Asian patients suffering from inverted eyelashes caused by a single eyelid with no eyelid crease. The procedure also usually makes applying makeup easier and can bring out the brightness of your eyes.
The creation of an eyelid crease can make your eyes appear bigger and brighter.
Is Double Blepharoplasty Right for You?
If you desire a more open look with your eyes, a double blepharoplasty may be right for you. Since the results are permanent, Dr. Yee takes care to fully explain every patient's options and ensure that they are free from any current eye infections or health problems before recommending treatment.
What to Expect during the Procedure
Dr. Yee performs Asian eyelid surgery on an outpatient basis, meaning you will be able to return home the day of surgery to begin your recovery period. She administers local anesthetic to help you remain comfortable throughout surgery. Next, Dr. Yee will make tiny incisions in the eyelids and trim excess skin or tissue as needed. This creates a crease in the eyelid, which typically conceals the surgical incision. While the recovery period is relatively short, it may take up to two months for your eyelid crease to adjust into its permanent position. Dr. Yee will provide explicit instructions for recovery to help you achieve a swift recovery resulting in comfortable, flattering refinements.
