Asian eyelid surgery, also known as “double eyelid surgery”, is a type of cosmetic surgery where the skin around the eye is reshaped (blepharoplasty). The purpose of the Asian or Korean eyelid surgery procedure is to create an upper eyelid with a crease (i.e. “double eyelid”) from an eyelid that is naturally without a crease (a.k.a. “single eyelid”).

While there are some Asians with a double eyelid and some without, there is also a large variation in the crease position (double eyelid size) of the East Asian upper eyelid. The upper lid fold can range from 1 mm above the eyelash line to about 10 mm. Dr Pooya uses a suture technique without cutting any skin to give you the look you desire with very little downtime. Asian eyelid surgery is a popular procedure that can drastically change your appearance.

Surgery

Dr Pooya can perform Asian eyelid surgery in his office surgical suite or on an outpatient basis at an accredited surgical center. It is important to arrange for care after the surgery. Someone must drive you home and be available to care for you for the first 24 hours.

Recovery: What to Expect

The area surrounding the eyes will remain swollen in the days following the Asian eyelid surgery. It should begin to subside after the first day. Some vision blurring is normal.

The stitches will be removed in 4-5 days. Swelling and bruising will persist for about 10 days, but you can begin wearing makeup to help conceal these concerns. You may expect to resume normal activity within a week to 10 days, and start enjoying your new look within approximately 10-14 days. It may take about 6 months for the scars to lose their redness.
