What is Asian Eyelid Surgery?

Asian eyelid surgery is an exclusive plastic surgery technique in Honolulu customized for Asians. Asians have a unique shape and appearance of the eye, which is quite prominent in their facial features. It is estimated that about 50% of Asians are born with a single eyelid, which means that they do not have an upper eyelid crease. The rest of the population, born with the upper eyelid crease, is also significantly different from Caucasians.

Reasons of the popularity of Asian Eyelid Surgery

Due to the difference in the anatomy of the eyelid, Asians living in America sometimes seek to undergo the Asian eyelid surgery. This may be due to the following reasons:

  - Mixing with the American population

  - Perceiving double eyelid as more attractive

  - Girls think that applying makeup on the eye is easier after undergoing this procedure

  - The success of Asian eyelid surgery

Due to these reasons, the popularity of Asian eyelid surgeries performed by plastic surgeons in Honolulu has increased tremendously in the past few years.

Latest Trends in Asian Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty

The most popular procedure for Asian eyelid surgery used by plastic surgeons in Honolulu is Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as Asian double eyelid surgery. This method of plastic surgery in Honolulu can surgically create creases in the eyelids and has now become the most reliable technique for this purpose. This owes to the disadvantages of the old method, which included indistinct folds, and high breakage rate. Blepharoplasty now eliminates these drawbacks and provides much better results including:

  - Much faster recovery

  - A natural looking crease

  - No scaring on the folds

Procedure

The procedure used by plastic surgeons in Honolulu for Asian eyelid surgery is quite modest and easy to handle. The procedure involves removing:

  - Extra skin depending on the age of the patient

  - A small quantity of tissue under the skin

  - Fat pads

The challenge for the plastic surgeon in Honolulu performing Asian eyelid surgery is in the details and design of the eyelid crease. Furthermore, technical skills are required in permanently hiding and healing the incision wound in the newly created eyelid.

Techniques Involved

Double Sutures and twisting method (DST)

This is the most sophisticated technique used in Asian eyelid surgery, which is employed in the Blepharoplasty procedure. This method uses non-reactive sutures such as prolene that are also used in heart valve surgeries. These sutures are permanently buried on the eyelid to create a crease. To achieve this, the undersurface of the eyelid’s skin is pinched to the deep soft tissue.

Incision Technique

Alternatively, an incision technique can be performed for Asian eyelid surgery that creates a crease with an incision. This technique is useful for the following types of patients:

  - Older than 30

  - Patients with excess skin or fat tissue in their eyelids

  - Patients who require more dramatic results
