Asian Eyelid Surgery Specialist in Bay Area, Los Gatos CA
Asian eyelid surgery makes an eyelid crease, which results in a larger, more symmetrical eye with an almond shape. By elevating the top eyelids, removing fat, and forming an eyelid crease, Asian eyelid surgery restores the patient’s complete field of vision while also enhancing their appearance. At CA Aesthetics, Bay Area Plastic Surgery Clinic, under the direction of Dr. Eric Li Asian eyelid surgery can give you the facial appearance you desire. We are conveniently located at 555 Knowles Drive, Suite 218 Los Gatos, CA 95032. Contact us for more information or schedule an appointment online.
In 50% of Asians, the upper eyelid crease can be poorly defined or absent. There may also be excess skin over the medial eye (epicanthal folds). Both these features tend to make the eye appear smaller. At the time of your consultation, Dr. Li will analyze your eyes/eyelids in detail and discuss whether Asian Eyelid Surgery is a good option for you.
The objective of Asian Eyelid Surgery is to create an upper eyelid crease and more refined appearance to the eye. The procedure can be done with the suture method, in which tiny incisions and sutures are carefully weaved through the eyelid, or the open method, in which the crease is created by surgically anchoring the upper eyelid to the eyelid lifting muscle.
If there are prominent epicanthal folds, adding Medical Epicanthoplasty Surgery can further improve the appearance of the eye. This is done by rearranging the medial eyelid skin. Lastly, in patients who also have drooping eyelids, the eyelid lifting muscle can also be strengthened at the same time (Ptosis Repair).
