If you are of Asian heritage and wish to enhance your look without losing your cultural identity, it’s important to choose a plastic surgeon who is familiar with and experienced in specific ethnic procedures. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Atlanta, GA, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang has a wealth of knowledge and experience in Asian facial surgeries. One of the most popular procedures among patients of Asian descent is the Asian eyelid lift, also known as double eyelid surgery. Curious about what results are possible with double eyelid surgery? Keep reading to find the answer.

What is double eyelid surgery?

The double eyelid lift – or Asian eyelid surgery – is a common facial cosmetic surgery designed specifically for patients of Asian descent. The specific approach used during double eyelid surgery helps to create a more awake and refreshed appearance by emphasizing the upper eyelid crease. In some cases, an Asian eyelid lift can actually improve a patient’s field of vision by lifting and removing the excess skin responsible for hooded eyes.

Does double eyelid surgery address the lower eyelids?

No. The Asian eyelid lift is specifically used to address a weak or nonexistent upper eyelid crease in patients of Asian heritage. For men and women whose primary concern is bulging or puffy bags under the eyes, a lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a more appropriate option. In some cases, a combination of upper and lower eyelid surgery is used to address concerns regarding both the upper and lower lids simultaneously. During your initial consultation for blepharoplasty surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Mang will carefully evaluate your skin and overall facial structure, listen to your desired outcome, and recommend a customized treatment plan for you.

Can Caucasians get double eyelid surgery?

While the Asian eyelid lift is specifically used for patients of Asian descent, virtually anyone can be considered a candidate for eyelid surgery in general. Many people, regardless of their ethnicity, have hooded eyes, sagging upper eyelids, or a weak eyelid crease that can be corrected with an upper blepharoplasty.

How can eyelid surgery help my look?

Depending on your specific concerns, Dr. Mang may recommend upper, lower, or Asian blepharoplasty. With these procedures, patients can address one or more of the following:

  • Sagging upper eyelids
  • Droopy upper eyelids
  • Hanging eyelids
  • Hooded eyes
  • Heavy upper eyelids
  • Obstructed field of vision
  • Asian eyelid crease
  • Wrinkled eyelids
  • Excess eyelid skin
  • Puffy lower eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Bulging fat under the eyes
  • Droopy lower eyelids
  • Asymmetric eyes

Will I have scars after double eyelid surgery?

The surgical approach used in double eyelid surgery involves the placement of a delicate incision within the upper eyelid crease – or the area where a crease will be created. This allows Asian eyelid surgery scars to be concealed in the newly created eyelid crease, offering discretion and a smooth, beautiful new look.
