A crease on the upper eyelid creates what is called a double-eyelid, a trait that is not always present for Asian individuals. About 50% of people of Asian descent have single upper eyelids without the crease. This is a genetic, natural trait, but it can make the eyes seem smaller, and skin from the upper eyelid can droop. Asian eyelid surgery is a cosmetic eye procedure that is designed to create a double upper eyelid to alter the shape of the eyes. At Precision Medical Specialists, we offer double or Asian eyelid surgery at our facility in Wellington, FL.
There are a few drawbacks to the single eyelid versus a double eyelid with a noticeable crease. The single eyelid can make the eyes seem narrow or smaller and without the crease, eye makeup options are more limited. Some people with a single eyelid have drooping skin that can make the eyes look tired or even impede vision. By changing the configuration of the upper eyelid to a double eyelid, these issues can be resolved and improve the shape of the eye.
There are a few different techniques that can be used to create a crease on the upper eyelid and alter the shape of the eye. The goal is to retain the almond shape while changing the upper eyelid to remove any droopy skin and add the desired crease. This is a very delicate and precise procedure that requires artistic and surgical expertise.
