What is an asian eyelid lift?

At his practice in Miami, FL, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, offers his patients of Asian descent an eyelid surgery with the double sutures and twisting (DST) method, as well as the traditional eyelid surgical techniques. For a virtually scar free surgery, the Asian eyelid surgery adds a natural look to the creases, and has a quick turn around on recovery time.

As it is called the "scar less blepharoplasty," this Asian eyelid surgery, provides patients with a natural looking eyelid that takes less than an hour to perform. If you would like to learn more about this procedure, how it works, and if you qualify for it, please call one of our friendly patient advisors, and schedule a consultation.

  • Improving the contour and aesthetic of the eyes
  • Decreasing discomfort by eliminating rubbing of skin folds

Who Is A Good Candidate for Asian Eyelid Surgery?

Good candidates for Asian eyelid surgery, or double eyelid surgery, at Jeffrey LaGrasso M.D. typically include individuals of Asian descent who want to enhance the appearance of their eyelids. This procedure aims to create a crease in the upper eyelid, which is a distinguishing feature of Western eyelid anatomy. Suitable candidates may have eyelids without a natural crease or asymmetrical or low creases. They should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results. It is important for candidates to have fully developed eyelid structures and stable eye health. Before surgery, you must consult with Dr. LaGrasso to assess your individual candidacy for this procedure and to determine a treatment plan based on your specific concerns and goals.

How is an ASIAN EYELID LIFT performed?

Depending on which technique is chosen for the Asian eyelid surgery, your plastic surgeon would be creating a fold to give your eyelid a double appearance. The double sutures and twisting method allows Dr. Lagrasso to reshape the skin on the eye in an out-patient setting. With a stitch underneath the skin of the eyelid, there will be no visible scar on the outside of the eye. This procedure can be performed rather quickly, in some less complex cases, and will provide the patient a short recovery period.

Asian Eyelid Surgery FAQ

How much does Asian eyelid surgery cost?

The exact price of Asian eyelid surgery can vary widely from one person to another. During your initial consultation, we'll be able to determine exactly what we need to do during the procedure. At that point, our staff can offer you a detailed cost estimate of the procedure.

Does eyelid surgery require an INPATIENT STAY?

Asian eyelid surgery will not require an inpatient stay in the hospital. It is actually a very quick procedure that is completed in an outpatient setting in less than an hour. 

Does Asian eyelid surgery leave scars?

Like virtually all surgeries, Asian eyelid surgery will leave behind some scarring. However, these scars are expertly hidden within the natural folds of the eyelids, making them almost completely unnoticeable. The exact location of these scars will be discussed prior to your operation.

Will my eyelid lift results look natural?

When considering the blepharoplasty techniques that will be used to place a crease to make the double lid, it is important for both the patient and the surgeon to understand that the goal of Asian double eyelid surgery is not to westernize an Asian face, but to create a crease that looks natural.

Is Asian Eyelid Surgery Painful?

No. Patients will be under the effects of anesthesia during their treatment and will not feel a thing. After the procedure, there may be some light discomfort, though this is usually very mild and can be managed with medication.

How Much Downtime is Required for Asian Eyelid Surgery?

Patients will be able to return to most of their normal daily schedule after about a week. However, we do ask during that week that patients do not apply makeup, wear contact lenses, play sports, or take part in strenuous exercise.
