What is Asian Blepharoplasty? Los Angeles | Beverly Hills

Asian Blepharoplasty | Asian Eyelid Surgery | Beverly Hills | Los Angeles CAAsian blepharoplasty is a specialized, individually-tailored form of eye surgery designed to correct minor cosmetic imbalances or imperfections around the eyes, improve facial harmony and symmetry so important for today’s standards of beauty, and generally offer greater aesthetic appeal and facial rejuvenation.

Although the reasons for undergoing Asian eyelid surgery vary widely, most patients seeking this type of cosmetic surgery are concerned about excessive sagging, bagginess, or excess fat around the eye, displeased with the asymmetrical shape of the eyes, or simply seeking to refresh and rejuvenate their naturally-beautiful appearance. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your eyes, and think that you may be ready for an Asian blepharoplasty, finding accurate information can be both difficult and frustrating, but as you begin your research, we encourage you to keep in mind the following important guidelines:

  • Eyelift lift surgery is not intended to “westernize” the eyelids. Blepharoplasty is intended to correct minor deviations in the structure and appearance of the eyes to enhance and refresh your overall appearance, while at the same time complementing your natural facial contours.
  • Asian eyelid lift surgery requires specialized knowledge of and experience with the anatomical structures unique to Asian eyes. Unfortunately, too many surgeons in the United States utilize standardized, Western surgical techniques that are not appropriate for the Asian face and usually lead to an unnatural and “worked-on” appearance, instead of harmonizing with your naturally-beautiful features.
  • Asian eyelid lift surgery is not a one-size-fits-all procedure and cookie-cutter approaches will simply not work. A successful Asian blepharoplasty requires a detailed, individualized surgical plan that is precisely tailored to the unique needs of each individual patient, based on their specific medical history, anatomical structure, and aesthetic goals.

Most importantly, it is critical to select an experienced, highly-trained oculofacial surgeon!
