Asian eyelid surgery, or Asian blepharoplasty, is a popular surgical procedure to create a crease in the upper eyelid region. This gives a patient the appearance of having big, beautiful eyes. At New York’s Facial, Plastic, Reconstructive and Laser Surgery, we only recommend the most state-of-the-art techniques, depending on a patient’s preference.
Asian eyelids look different from Caucasian eyelids due to several anatomical distinctions. The upper eyelid crease in the Asian eyelid is often absent or positioned lower than that of the Caucasian eyelid. The crease is also often shaped differently, or consists of multiple creases. The fat pads that surround the eye extend closer to the eyelashes, sometimes causing a puffy appearance. Asian eyelids also often have an epicanthal fold, a downward angled fold of skin that covers the inner corner of the eye.
Eyelid surgery is the most common cosmetic surgery performed among people of Asian descent. A common misconception regarding Asian blepharoplasty is that the goal is to “westernize” the Asian eyelid in order to make it look less Asian. Actually, the goal of Asian eyelid surgery is to create a youthful and attractive look, while preserving the natural shape and characteristics of the Asian eyelid.
Who is a Candidate for Asian Eyelid Reshaping or Asian Blepharoplasty?
The best candidates for eyelid surgery are healthy Asian men and women who do not suffer from any pre-existing eye conditions. Patients with an overactive thyroid gland may not qualify for eyelid surgery due to the increased risk of swelling and other problems around the eyes. Eyelid surgery is perfect for patients of any ethnicity who are seeking to improve the appearance of their eyes.
What is the Recovery like from Asian Eyelid Reshaping or Asian Blepharoplasty?
Asian eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is performed in our office using local anesthesia or under moderate sedation in an operating room. We only use modern, state-of-the-art techniques to enhance a patient’s heritage. The techniques used are personalized to each patient’s age and ethnicity.
The procedure is accomplished in an outpatient setting. Most patients return to home after only a few hours. Recovery is usually one to two weeks, at which time patients may return to work and non-strenuous activities. Mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising are common the first two to three weeks after surgery. Most patients feel confident returning to their public and social lives in 7-10 days. Our experienced surgeons reduce bruising and recovery time with the application of state-of-art techniques and the use of homeopathic or herbal options. Detailed postoperative and aftercare instructions will be provided to each patient.
Those patients considering Asian eyelid surgery should carefully evaluate their surgeon’s credentials and training. Our doctors are Board Certified, with extensive knowledge to deliver the best cosmetic results while safeguarding proper hearing function.

Had the BEST facial with Amanda. She was so sweet and gentle during my facial and even gave me recommendations post facial. The spa had such a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Overall a great experience and I will be back!
The very first faces you see are the beautiful ones at the receptionist desk. They are warm, friendly & very greeting. I was brought right back to meet Dr. Abraham. I had been very excited to meet the Dr. who was going to be doing my surgery. I brought in a few photos of the expectation I had for myself, to look like again. Within reason of course. He was SO knowledgeable & answered all my questions & concerns. Before my actual meeting with Dr. Abraham, I researched many doctor's in this area. I kept returning to Dr. Abraham. I was EXTREMELY impressed. What a kind, gentle soul he is. Bedside manner, I give him 1,000 stars if I could. Then as all of our questions & concerns were answered to our liking, we met Judy. She works extremely hard. Dr. Abraham's right hand LADY! She MADE SURE everything went as smoothly as it did. And because of Judy getting everything in order, I had my full neck lift, a lower facelift & an earlobe reduction. I was really swollen after surgery, but almost 2 months post op, I can SEE the younger me ALREADY. I know I have a little ways to go, but I could not be HAPPIER than I am, as every day goes by. I'm looking forward to healing a little more so I can continue with getting my sun spots removed next. TY especially for Dr. Abraham's GIFTED hands from GOD. And TY for all your missions you do. TY to the wonderful nurses & everyone who took good care of me.
