Can I Have Asian Eyelid Surgery?

To find out if you qualify for Asian eyelid surgery, call our Duluth, GA office today and schedule a consultation.
How Is Asian Eyelid Surgery Performed?
Each surgery is unique based on individual needs and desires, which you will discuss with Dr. Mang during your initial consultation. It's likely an incisional approach will be utilized for your Asian eyelid surgery, which will allow Dr. Mang the opportunity to alter and shape the height of your eyelids and create a crease that looks natural, remove fat from the eyelid causing your eye(s) to look overly full, and decrease the fold on the upper inner corner of the eye. This process may include trimming muscle and fat in order to create the look you desire. It's likely you will receive local anesthesia for a more minimally invasive procedure and general anesthesia in a more extensive case.
What Can I Expect After My Asian Eyelid Surgery?
After your Asian eyelid surgery, you will be sent home to rest and recover. It's likely you'll have itchy and dry eyes, bruising, swelling, and a feeling of tightness around your eyes. This is perfectly normal and will disappear on its own after about 1 – 2 weeks. Avoiding strenuous activity, like exercise, for the first few days is important; however, you can likely get back to normal activities after about a week when your stitches have been removed. About ten days after your Asian eyelid surgery, you should be ready to go back to work, but do not wear contacts for two weeks. If necessary, Dr. Mang can prescribe eye drops and a cool compress can be used to ease any discomfort. Scarring should be minimal, and you will likely begin to see your results after about a month or two.
