If you’re of Asian descent and interested in getting eyelid lift surgery, you may be feeling frustrated by the cookie-cutter results you’ve been seeing from other plastic surgeons. The portfolio examples may make you feel as though your Asian heritage and ethnic characteristics could be erased if you choose the wrong plastic surgeon.

Does the above sound familiar to you? If so, it’s time to discover the Asian eyelid lift procedure, including the difference between Asian and Caucasian eyelids.

The Difference Between Asian and Caucasian Eyelids

One of the reasons why there’s a difference between Asian and Caucasian eyelid lift surgeries is due to the structure of the eyelids themselves, as well as the natural placement of the eyelid crease.

Caucasian eyelids tend to have the crease located higher from the eyelash line, which makes the eyelid more visible. Asian eyelids tend to have the crease located closer to the lash line; in some cases, this close proximity can create the appearance of hooded eyes.

Many Asian patients often seek out Asian blepharoplasty surgery because they want to look more wide-eyed and alert. Others want a more visible eyelid, which can create a bright-eyed appearance as well as provide patients with more room for eyeshadow.

The Asian Eyelid Lift Procedure

Whatever your reasons for seeking out an Asian eyelid lift, one goal is held above all else: to help you achieve your cosmetic goals without minimizing your ethnic heritage. In practice, this means that the surgery is performed in such a way to create a natural eyelid crease without creating an overly Caucasian appearance.

We work closely with patients to better understand their aesthetic concerns, as well as provide examples of work we’ve done in the past.

The end goal is to create a bright-eyed and well-rested appearance that’s still uniquely and undoubtedly you.

Dr,Kyle Song is a very skilled surgeon and did an excellent job on my upper bluff surgery. I have received many compliments that I look young and bright (age 70) and don’t know why because my eyes look so natural. Dr. Mark Song was so kind and sensitive during the treatments and I will continue to return for those procedures. Thank you to the staff for your patience in scheduling and listening to questions.
