What is Asian Eyelid Surgery?
Asian eyelid surgery or double eyelid surgery is a popular procedure performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Atlanta, GA. This surgery creates a pretarsal crease in the upper eyelid to offer a more awake look. The goal is for this fold to look natural and to open the eyes. Our team understands the differences between the Asian vs Caucasian eyes, forehead, and overall skin in our Asian patients and can offer great success for patients through Asian eyelid surgery in Atlanta. At your consultation, we will look at the amount of skin on the upper eyelids, the eyebrow position, and any pre-existing crease to determine if a patient is a viable candidate for this eye surgery.
Who is a candidate for Asian eyelid surgery?
At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Mang evaluates patients closely to determine if double eyelid surgery will benefit them most. When you’re Asian and want to have more open eyes, you want to consider Asian eyelid surgery. This surgery has been proven to improve vision in many patients. Designed to look natural, we help men and women achieve this awakened appearance.
A potential candidate for double eyelid surgery in Atlanta, GA is someone with:
Small or non-upper eyelid folds
Uneven or misshapen folds
Dulled expression due to a weak eyelid muscle
Excess eyelid skin that impairs vision
How is Asian eyelid surgery performed?
Every surgery at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery is performed to meet the unique needs and goals of each patient. Dr. Mang uses an incisional approach to Asian eyelid surgery to alter and shape the height of the patient’s eyelids. He will create a crease and remove fat from the eyelid, which will decrease the fold of the upper inner corner. This may require him to trim muscle and fat to get the desired look. A local anesthetic is used for those wanting a minimally invasive approach; however, general anesthesia can also be used.
Asian eyelid surgery recovery time
After your Asian eyelid surgery in Atlanta, GA, you will be sent home to recover. Most patients will experience bruising, swelling, itchy dry eyes, and a feeling of tightness around your eyes. This is normal and usually will subside on its own after about one to two weeks. Avoid strenuous activity and exercise for at least the first few days. Most people resume regular activity after their stitches have been removed. About 10 days after Asian eyelid surgery, patients can return to work, but are not allowed to wear contacts for at least two weeks. If necessary, Dr. Mang can prescribe eye drops. Scarring is minimal, and you will see your results after about a month or two.
