Benefits of the Asian eye lift procedure

Asian eye lift procedure

The demand for Asian eye lift surgery is growing worldwide, as many Asians are choosing to change the hooded eyelid look that often makes their eyes look droopy. Many Asians do not have a natural crease in the upper eyelids, and since the eyelid is not separated into two segments it looks like a ‘single eyelid.’  The Asian eye lift procedure is usually done to create an eyelid crease, and refresh the appearance of the eyes.

An eyelid lift is known medically as blepharoplasty, and is typically performed to rejuvenate the eyes. Some Asians choose to undergo eyelid lift surgery because of a poorly defined eyelid crease, while others opt for surgery because they do not have an eyelid crease. For those without a natural eyelid crease, surgery involves the creation of a supratarsal crease in the upper eyelid.

Dr. Frederic Corbin in Brea, (Orange County) and Beverly Hills, CA, is an experienced plastic surgeon who performs many Asian eye lift procedures each year. Dr. Corbin utilizes a laser during the procedure, and it is used to make the incision in the area where the crease is to be positioned.  During surgery excess fat and skin is removed, and then the fold is created.

The use of laser technology improves the efficiency of the procedure, as it allows the surgeon to make very precise incisions, and consequently the results look very natural.

Most Asians opt for surgery because they want to enhance their natural look, as surgery restores the youthful appearance of the eyelids. In some cases the hooding of the upper eyelid hides the eyelashes, but after the Asian eye lift procedure the lashes are exposed, due to the improved eyelid definition. Women also like the fact that it makes wearing makeup a lot easier.
