Asian blepharoplasty - double eyelids surgery before and after photos

Upper blepharoplasty removes excess skin that makes eyes look droopy and aged. Lower blepharoplasty removes excess fat that causes lower eyelid bulges. Both tighten the skin. In this case of Asian Eyelid Surgery, the native upper eyelid crease is often low or absent and needs to be created.

Facial Beauty is defined by the eyes and then the lips, all other features are distractions, and the eyes are the primary determinant of a beautiful face. We don’t recognize beautiful ears, but it is distracting when they stick out. Even the central feature of the face, the nose, is less important than the eyes and lips for beauty. In fact, a beautiful nose goes along with the eyes and lips. If the nose dominates the face, is it usually not in a good way.

Fortunately, Plastic Surgery has something to offer in these areas. Blepharoplasty is the procedure Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons use to rejuvenate the eyelids and restore a rested, more youthful appearance. In the before picture above, the patient looks tired, sad, maybe angry. In the after photo she looks happy, bright eyed and attentive. Otoplasty and Rhinoplasty are also surgical options, for those that wish to make changes to their ears and nose.

Beautiful Eyes

Beautiful Eyes are meant to be seen. When the upper eyelid skin sags, it blocks the vision of the patient and the visibility of the eyes for everyone else. Saggy upper eyelids are impossible to look through and not the ideal aesthetic. Beautiful eyes are even more important now with the mandatory face coverings required during the current COVID-19 pandemic, as they are the only facial feature visible when we interact with others.

Even when vision is not obstructed, saggy upper eyelids project a tired appearance and often leads others to remark that we look tired despite being well rested. Lower eyelid bags also contribute to a sleep deprived appearance. Tired-looking eyes give the impression that we are disinterested and disconnected when we want to look alert and awake.

Upper Eyelid Rejuvenation

Even large amounts of excess skin can be safely removed from the upper eyelid with improvement in appearance and vision for the patient.

When the upper eyelids age they deflate and sag. Upper Blepharoplasty is used to remove sagging and obstructive skin and bulging fat pads. During a relatively short, outpatient surgery, the procedure lifts the eyelids off the eyelashes and opens the eyes, improving appearance and vision in many cases.

Lower Eyelid Rejuvenation

For younger patients with good lid tone and skin elasticity, an incision inside the lower eyelid is used to remove the fat bags. For older patients, the incision is made just below the lashes, so excess skin can also be removed.

When the lower eyelids age they inflate and sags. Lower Blepharoplasty is used to remove bulging fat pads and to tighten the lower eyelid skin. The procedure uptakes the lower eyelids bags, providing a more rested and youthful appearance.
