I specialize in Asian blepharoplasty. As an Asian surgeon (maiden name, Dr. Ho), I am acutely aware of the unique wants and needs that Asian women and men have in their eyelid surgery. In fact, I was born with one double eyelid and one single eyelid / mono-lid, so I can understand your viewpoint.
50% of Asians do not have an upper eyelid crease, while the other 50% have at least some form of crease. Asians who do not have an upper eyelid crease may appear wise and serene. Asians who do have an upper eyelid crease may appear more alert and friendly.
In Asian blepharoplasty, an upper eyelid without a crease (“single” eyelid or mono-lid) is changed to an upper eyelid with a crease (“double” eyelid”). Upper eyelid surgery is also done to make the eyelids look more symmetrical. In fact, this is the most requested cosmetic surgery procedure by Asian women and men.
My goal is to create a double eyelid that looks natural and non-surgical both when your eyes are open and when they are closed. In general, I avoid creating a “westernized” Caucasian eyelid on your Asian face. Everyone is different, though, so I tailor to your preferences.
Your eyelid blepharoplasty is usually performed in my office procedure room or occasionally in a surgery center or hospital depending on your wishes and needs. Your comfort and safety is my utmost concern. As a certified Oculo-Facial Plastic Surgeon, I have the most specialized training available for eyelid surgery. I have performed thousands of these procedures so I am good at creating an environment where you experience minimal discomfort.
