Asian Eyelid Surgery

Asian eyelid surgery is very different from the eyelid lift surgery for caucasian due to the unique anatomy. 50% of  Asian are born without the upper eyelid crease because of the low settling  orbital septum relative to a narrower upper eyelid tarsus, a  thicker upper eyelid skin and the epicanthal folds. Special training and experience is very important for eyelid surgeons to create aesthetic pleasing results for young Asian patients.

In the young population, the purpose of the upper eyelid surgery is to create a skin crease to achieve an aesthetically pleasing look. It is not just the upper eyelid, but the whole area needs to be considered as a unit, which includes upper eyelid skin condition, the amount of orbital fat, the inner corner of the eyes, and the height of the nasal bridge to achieve the best outcome of the procedure. 

In the older population, fat protrusion, the location of the brow, the skin thickness, and redundancy need to be considered to choose the right procedure.
