Patients often visit our expert surgery team to find out about the different types of eyelid surgeries we have available. One of the most common options, Asian eyelid surgery, is designed for folks who were born without a natural crease in their upper eyelids and want to make their faces look fuller. While this type of eyelid surgery is most commonly performed on patients with an East Asian background, anyone with a monolid can be a good candidate for this procedure. But can Asian eyelid surgery make my eyes look bigger?
Can Asian Eyelid Surgery Make My Eyes Look Bigger?
Naturally, a lot of questions arise about double eyelid surgery. Can it be combined with other procedures? Can Asian eyelid surgery make my eyes look bigger? Will the procedure get rid of my natural features? Keep reading to learn the answers to these questions and more.
Expand Your Features with a Crease
Double eyelid surgery transforms the appearance of your eyes, giving you a crease in the folds of your upper lids so you have more volume around the most important features of the face. Two types of this procedure exist: a full incision, which creates a deep crease and offers minimal scarring, and a suture procedure, which can help patients retain their natural look without getting any scars.
Only certain patients can qualify for the suture procedure, as it is important that you do not already have excess skin in the folds of your lid. If you would like to add a natural-looking crease to your eyes without making a dramatic change to your face, then you might want to consider this less invasive route. However, most patients qualify for the full incisional procedure instead.
Create Bigger Eyes Through a Precise Procedure
Double eyelid surgery is one of the most meticulous cosmetic surgeries in the world, as the surgeon has to be incredibly precise to create the perfect crease in your eyelid. A natural-looking crease will be symmetrical and uniform, with equal amounts of skin above and below it to maintain perfect facial harmony. This process usually includes lifting or removing some of the excess skin on your eyelids, which can clear up some of the space around your eyes.
The added crease gives your eyes more depth, and the lifted lids will be pulled back to widen the shape of your eyes altogether. Anyone looking to rejuvenate and brighten their facade can enjoy the lifelong results that come from a double lid surgery at In Focus.
Retain Your Natural Features
A major concern posed by patients of Asian background is that the procedure will widen their eyes too much, making them appear more Caucasian. It is our specific mission at In Focus to help patients retain all of the natural elements of their background that make them so beautiful. Asian eyelid surgery will not Westernize your face, but rather it will enhance the features you were born with by rejuvenating your overall appearance.
You do not have to worry about losing your essence with this lid lift. That said, we encourage you to ask questions during your initial consultation. This will give you a better idea of what the procedure entails and whether or not the surgeon proves qualified enough to do the job right.
