There are a lot of cosmetic surgeons out there advertising “expertise” in Asian eye surgery, which can make choosing the “right” surgeon complicated and confusing. Asian eye surgery is a specialized cosmetic surgery procedure requiring in-depth knowledge of both the natural anatomy of Asian facial structures and advanced surgical techniques in order to achieve a successful outcome that enhances the natural contours of the eye while preserving the distinctively “Asian” appearance of the double eyelid fold. When performed by a cosmetic surgeon who lacks experience performing Asian eye surgery or who utilizes “cookie-cutter” techniques, the results can be truly devastating.
So, how do you select the “right” surgeon? The key to finding the right cosmetic surgeon for your Asian eye surgery is to outline important criteria and then make sure your surgeon meets those criteria.
