Double Fold Eyelid Surgery vs. Blepharoplasty: Know the Differences

Asian double-fold eyelid surgery differs significantly from blepharoplasty, the eyelid surgery more commonly performed on Caucasians. The differences include:

  • Smaller Distance: Asians typically have a smaller distance between the eyelid and the eyebrow.
  • More Fat and Muscle: The Asian eyelid tends to have more fat and thicker muscle.
  • Shallower Eye Socket: Asian people generally have a shallower eye socket.
  • Muscle Attachment: The way eyelid muscles attach to the skin and eyelid differs in Asians.

While blepharoplasty is primarily aimed at correcting aging effects, Asian double-fold eyelid surgery is often performed on younger Asian individuals seeking a more defined and dramatic eye appearance without losing the essence of their natural beauty.

It is crucial to choose highly-trained, experienced surgeons like those at Changes. Our team possesses a profound understanding of the distinct anatomy of Asian eyelids and the skills to enhance your unique beauty.

Tailored to Perfection: Your Consultation at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa

During your initial consultation, you will discuss the type of eyelid shape you desire with your doctor. Working together with you, your surgeon will create a custom treatment plan honed to help you reach your individual beauty goals. Your doctor will take time to ensure you are matched with the right procedures for you, that you understand the process, and that you are prepared for the recovery period.

The Surgical Process for Precise Results

Asian double-fold eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia. The steps include:

Marking the Intended Fold

Your surgeon marks the area of the intended fold, aligning with your aesthetic goals.

Removing Excess Tissue

Skin, muscle, and fat are carefully removed from the area of the fold.

Determining Amounts

The surgeon determines the appropriate amounts of skin, muscle, and fat removal based on your desired outcome.

Creating the Double Fold

The eyelid skin is sutured to the muscle that opens the lid, creating a double-fold effect upon the eyelid opening.

Short Recovery Times with Lasting Results

Stitches are typically removed 4 to 5 days post-surgery, with the fold immediately visible. Recovery takes approximately 10 to 14 days, during which time most bruising subsides, and your fabulous final results can be appreciated.
