Every year, thousands of Asian women and men choose eyelid surgery to help restore a more youthful appearance. Asian Eyelid surgery is the most common elective procedure among people of Asian ethnicity in the United States and in Asia. Although people choose to undergo eyelid surgery for many reasons, a common misconception is that Asian Eyelid surgeries are performed in an attempt to make the patient look “less Asian”. Nothing could be further from the truth however as typically the overall goal of Asian Eyelid surgery is to help the patient look and feel their best by changing the eyelid to balance their facial features. The Asian eyelid is different from the Caucasian eyelid in many ways and that is why Asian Eyelid surgery is so unique. One of the most frequent mistakes that plastic surgeons make when performing an Asian Eyelid surgery is trying to “Americanize” or “Europeanize” the eyelids which results in a very unnatural appearance.
