About Asian Eyelid Surgery

Double eyelid surgery has quickly become one of the most sought-after and popular procedures within the Asian community. This specific type of blepharoplasty creates a pretarsal crease in the upper eyelid for patients born with monolids. Dr. Chris Costa is a plastic surgeon who tailors each procedure to give his patients an optimal eyelid fold that looks natural while opening up the eyes and improving vision. He is extremely sensitive to the needs of his patients and can help deliver results that look beautiful while preserving your unique heritage. An ethnic blepharoplasty can be very effective to add a crease to the eyelid, thus producing a more awake, rejuvenated appearance using subtle enhancement techniques. If you're interested in improving the look of your eyes for a softer, more youthful aesthetic with double eyelid surgery, then we invite you to contact Platinum Plastic Surgery in the Las Vegas, NV area. Dr. Costa will meet with you personally to create your custom treatment plan based on your unique needs and goals.

Ideal Candidates

Double eyelid surgery can help your eyes look more open and awake. Many female patients find it easier to apply eye makeup, especially eyeliner, once they have an upper eyelid crease. In some cases, the surgery is performed to improve vision if the upper eye is drooping (a medical condition known as ptosis) or if your eyelashes scratch your eyes. This surgery is designed to create a natural outcome that is noticeable but not overdone. Dr. Costa will meet with you to establish your goals and personal treatment plan based on your desired results. If you wish to achieve a natural result that will enhance your appearance, Asian eyelid surgery by Dr. Costa can effectively open up the eyelids while also staying true to your wishes and the unique character traits specific to your heritage.

Surgical Technique

Each surgery will vary depending on your unique traits and eye structure as well as what kind of outcome you're hoping to achieve. However, Dr. Costa will usually employ an incisional approach for a double eyelid surgery. This will allow him to alter the shape or height of the upper eyelids and create a natural-looking crease, remove any fat herniating in the eyelid making it look overly full, and decrease a pronounced epicanthal fold (the flap of tissue on the nasal side of the eyelid). In the case of a double eyelid surgery, some fat and muscle may be trimmed away as well to open up the eyelid and create a more defined look. Dr. Costa will determine which technique is appropriate to help you reach your goals. In more minimally invasive cases, local anesthesia or IV sedation may be all that is needed, though more extensive operations will usually require general anesthesia. 

What to Expect

After surgery, you will be sent to rest at home. Minimal side effects may include itching, dry eyes, bruising, swelling, and a sense of tightness in the eyelids. These symptoms are normal and should subside within 1 – 2 weeks. You will need to refrain from strenuous activity for the first few days, but most patients can resume routine activities in around of 5 – 7 days after any stitches are removed. You can typically return to work in about ten days after your operation. Contact lenses should not be worn for two weeks, as eyes can be sensitive to light and wind and may show slight irritation for a brief period. Dr. Costa can prescribe eye drops and cool compresses to ease any discomfort if necessary. You should begin to see your final results after about 1 – 2 months, with a more refreshed and cheerful look appearing around the eyes and improved self-confidence. If scarring is present, it should be very minimal, though many patients experience no visible scarring after an Asian eyelid surgery.
