Your eyes are one of the most prominent features of your face. Asians tend to have unique facial characteristics, making the shape of their eyes different in terms of length, shape, and height. Nearly half of all Asians have what is called a “single eyelid,” without an upper eyelid crease. The lack of a crease in the eyelid can make it harder to apply makeup successfully, leaving many women unhappy with their appearance. Eyelid surgery to create this crease is one of the most frequently performed plastic surgeries in the Asian community.

Asian Eyelid Surgery

The procedure

Asians desire this eyelid surgery to make the eye appear brighter, more open, and more awake. It is critical that the cosmetic surgeon performing the procedure creates a look that respects your Asian heritage, and appears completely natural, in harmony with your facial features.

At FACE Cosmetic Surgery, we understand how important it is to create an attractive crease that respects your Asian culture, while enhancing what nature gave you; the saying, “less is more” could not be more important in the performance of a Toronto Asian eyelid surgery procedure.

The surgery is performed by making a discreet incision along the upper eyelid. The skin and underlying tissues are altered to create the desired crease, resulting in a brighter, more “open” eye appearance.

Before & After

The best way to determine whether a surgeon is capable of giving you the results you desire is to view his past work and results.

Am i a candidate for asian eyelid surgery?

Asian eyelid surgery in Toronto is one of the most popular facial plastic surgeries we perform on patients of Asian descent. If you are living with any of the following conditions, you may be a candidate for this minor surgical enhancement:

  • Your vision is impaired due to heavy, droopy eyelids
  • You cannot produce the look you want with the application of makeup
  • You don’t like the appearance of a “single eyelid”

In your first consultation with one of our surgeons, they will evaluate various factors to determine the most effective way to reshape your upper eyelids to include a crease, including:

  • Age and gender
  • The thickness and quality of the skin in the eyelid area
  • The look you envision for your eyes

Asian Eyelid Surgery: FAQ

We know you likely have many questions concerning Asian eyelid surgery in Toronto. We are always available to answer your individual questions, but have provided answers to basic questions below:

How long will the procedure take?

The procedure itself takes about one hour to perform on its own, however a surgery can take longer if paired with other procedures, which many patients choose to do -- whether a rhinoplasty or other procedure.

Does asian eyelid surgery require anesthetic?

Yes. The procedure is performed with IV sedation and local anesthesia to provide pain-free comfort and relaxation during your surgery. You will be conscious but not stressed or feeling pain while the eyelid surgery is performed.

How should i prepare for surgery?

As with all surgical procedures, it is important that you are in good general health. Prior to your surgery, we will review any current medications you take, as well as evaluate your health history for your own safety. We offer our patients full instructions to guide you in preparing for the surgery.

How long will my results last?

The results from a Toronto Asian eyelid surgery are long lasting. As the years pass, the result can be affected by various factors including aging skin, or medical and environmental factors. We encourage our patients to stay in touch with us regarding their results.
