However, blepharoplasty is mainly designed for those with signs of aging, puffiness, or sagging eye skin, but it does not work for those with Asian facial features.

Understanding Asian Blepharoplasty

Asian blepharoplasty is also called an Asian eyelid lift because it raises and widens the eyes. It creates a well-defined double eyelid crease and helps patients achieve a more relaxed and open eye. Asian eyelids often only have a single eyelid fold, making it challenging to apply makeup and even affecting their vision. The eyelids are also thicker and heavier, sometimes interfering with a symmetrical or bright appearance.

Finding the right provider to perform your Asian blepharoplasty is the most essential step, as it is a delicate surgery that requires extensive training and experience.

The Effect Of Eyelids

Asian blepharoplasty Seattle works with understanding how the eyelid shadow affects our physical appearance. Dr. Young’s groundbreaking New Theory on Beauty is renowned in cosmetic medicine as the leading theory on facial symmetry and standard beauty. This theory starts with the eyes, the first area we look to when meeting someone. 

The height and size of the irises are pleasing to look at, and those with an eyelid crease or shadow that is the same size as the iris have a more symmetrical look that meets the standard of beauty. By creating an eyelid shadow that is the same shape and height as the iris, patients can achieve beautiful eye symmetry and gain confidence in their appearance.

How An Asian Eyelid Lift Is Performed

There are specific techniques that Dr. Young uses to achieve Asian blepharoplasty Seattle, but each technique works for a different cosmetic challenge or goal. Dr. Young uses advanced methods to provide patients with safe and effective eyelid lifts.

Medial Epicanthoplasty

Medial epicanthoplasty is a technique used that creates a prominent double-eyelid crease and shadow. Depending on the patient’s unique facial structure and eyelid crease, this method can use different incision types in the epicanthal fold or eyelid crease  Dr. Young can create multiple creases in the eyelid to give the eyes a softer and more open look.

During a consultation, Dr. Young will find the best location for your cosmetic goals and determine how many eyelid creases are suited to your facial structure and iris size. He can also lift the eye at various points that will blend seamlessly with the rest of your facial features and help create prominent eyelashes.

Orbicularis Levator Fixation

The orbicularis levator fixation method uses advanced methods to create a permanent eyelid crease that promotes the definition of the eyelid shadow.
