Eyelid Lift Surgery for Asian Men & Women
Troy, Michigan is truly a melting pot of beautiful cultures. And Troy’s second largest ethnic group is Asians – comprising more than 25% of Troy’s varied and diverse population.
The beauty of diversity lies in the unique features that distinguish individuals from various ethnic backgrounds. Every ethnicity has their own distinctive beauty. Asian men and women, for example, possess distinct eyelid structures that contribute to their allure. However, the beautiful almond shaped eyes that are characteristic of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and other Asian heritage have their own unique medical and cosmetic issues – from vision impairment to aesthetic concerns.
As a result, many Asian men and women consider eyelid lift surgery, also known as Asian blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery, for an array of reasons that aim to enhance their natural beauty, and improve vision, while maintaining their unique characteristics. At AMAE plastic surgery, skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of Asian patients become more satisfied and confident in the appearance of their eyes, while still respecting and maintaining their exquisite Asian heritage.
What Is Asian Eyelid Lift Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Asian eyelid structure is unique in many ways. One of the most common features is the ‘monolid’, which is an eyelid without a crease. Asian eyes also tend to be smaller and rounder than Western eyes. These unique features can be beautiful, but they can also lead to some concerns about appearance.
Many Asian men and women consider eyelid lift surgery to improve the appearance of their eyes. Eyelid lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. It can also tighten the muscles around the eyes.
There are many reasons why Asian men and women may choose to have eyelid lift surgery. Below we discuss a few of the most common reasons.
Asian Eyelid Lift Surgery to Correct Ptosis
Ptosis is a condition where the upper eyelid partially covers the pupil, thereby impairing vision. This condition can affect individuals of all ethnicities, but it’s often more pronounced in Asians due to their unique eyelid structure.
Eyelid lift surgery can correct ptosis, restoring optimal vision and improving the aesthetic appearance of the eyes. By addressing ptosis through surgery, patients not only enjoy a more youthful and refreshed look but also experience functional benefits like improved sight and peripheral vision.
Asian Eyelid Lift Surgery to Create a Double Eyelid Crease
A double eyelid crease is a fold of skin that runs across the upper eyelid. It is a common feature of Western eyes, but it is not as common in Asian eyes – which often have a “monolid”. Many Asian men and women choose to have eyelid lift surgery to create a double eyelid crease in order to make their eyes look larger and more open.
An eyelid lift can introduce a crease, imparting depth and definition to the eyes. A defined eyelid crease can make the eyes appear larger, brighter, and more expressive. It enhances the overall facial aesthetics by accentuating the eyes, which are often considered the windows to the soul.
Additionally, many Asian women appreciate makeup as a form of self-expression and creativity. An eyelid lift can provide a more defined canvas for makeup application, allowing eyeshadows, eyeliners, and mascaras to be showcased more effectively. With an enhanced eyelid crease, makeup can be applied more precisely, and colors can pop, leading to endless possibilities for artistic and glamorous looks.
Asian Eyelid Lift Surgery to Look Younger
People of all ethnicities experience drooping of the eyelids and/or ‘bags’ under the eyes as the skin ages and loses elasticity. This causes a person to look tired and older than they are (or feel). But due to the distinctive structure of typical Asian eyes, sagging skin can be particularly troublesome.
Eyelid lift surgery can remove excess skin from the upper eyelids, as well as remove puffy bags under the eyes, for a younger and more refreshed appearance. By eliminating excess skin, reducing wrinkles and bags, and rejuvenating the eye area, eyelid lift surgery can help Asian individuals look as young as they feel.
