Asian Eyelid Reshaping

Asian blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to create a natural looking crease in the upper eyelid region. This can give the appearance of having “bigger eyes”. There are different types of creases and techniques that may be required depending on patient and surgeon preference. The goal is to create eyelids that are more harmonious to the face and retain the patients’ ethnicity and heritage.

Candidates are healthy people who want to change the appearance of their eyes. Patients may have eyelashes that may be pointing inward toward the eye that may chronically irritate the eye. Patients could also have asymmetric eyelid crease position.

Asian blepharoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia in the doctor’s office. The procedure itself takes about 60-90 minutes.

Recovery after surgery takes about 1-3 weeks. All stitches are removed 5-7 days after the surgery. All normal physical activity may be resumed in 1 week. To improve recovery and speed up downtime, Dr. Sunny Park may prescribe her patients oral vitamins and topical minerals before and after surgery.

Upper and Lower Eyelid Lift / Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is a procedure to surgically remove excess skin and fat above and below the eyes, causing a tired, old, “hooded” look around the eyes. Having limited peripheral vision is also a side effect of the aging process, as the loose skin around the eyes may begin to obstruct one’s vision.

Good candidates for eyelid surgery are generally healthy men and women, who wish to rejuvenate the look of their eyes. Upper blepharoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia in the office and takes about 90 minutes. Lower blepharoplasty is usually done under “twilight” sedation but can also be done under local anesthesia in certain cases; and it takes about 2 hours.

Recovery after surgery takes about 1-3 weeks. All stitches are removed 5-7 days following surgery. All normal physical activity may be resumed in 1 week. To improve recovery and speed up downtime, Dr. Sunny Park may prescribe her patients oral vitamins and topical minerals before and after surgery.
