Will Asian Eyelid Surgery Make Your Eyes Look Bigger?
Asian eyelid surgery or Asian eye bag 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 on the upper eyelid, so the eyes appear more open. The goal is for this new fold to look natural. Our professional team understands the differences between Asian and Caucasian eyes. Because of this, we can ensure you get the results you’re looking for with Asian eyelid surgery in Atlanta. At your consultation, we will evaluate the amount of skin on your upper eyelids, the position of your eyebrows, and any crease you may already have to determine if you are a candidate for this eye surgery.
Who is a candidate for Asian eyelid surgery?

Benefits of eyelid surgery for bigger eyes
Most Asian patients aim to improve their sleepy or unhappy facial expressions by opening their eyes. Asian eyelid surgery creates subtle but natural-looking creases that make the eyes look bigger and wider. Asian eyelid surgery can help improve:
Asymmetrical upper eyelid folds
Lack of an eyelid crease
Puffy eyelids because of excess fat
Ultimately, Asian eyelid surgery makes the eyes look bigger by adding this crease.
How is Asian eyelid surgery performed?
Every surgery at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery is performed to meet the needs of every patient and their goals. Dr. Mang uses an incisional approach during Asian eyelid surgery to change and shape the height of the eyelids. He creates a crease and removes fat from the eyelid, which then decreases the fold of the upper inner corner. This requires him to trim any muscle and fat to get the best look. He uses local anesthetic 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 may experience bruising, swelling, itchy and dry eyes, or a feeling of tightness around the eyes. This should subside after one to two weeks. Avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for at least the first few days. Most people resume regular activity after their stitches are removed. About ten days after Asian eyelid surgery, patients can return to work, but they cannot wear contacts for at least two weeks. Dr. Mang can prescribe eye drops for those experiencing dry eye symptoms. Scarring is minimal, and you will see your final results after a month or two.
