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.

Depending on which technique is chosen for the Asian eye lid 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.
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.

Will My OPinion Count?
Yes. Your opinion matters. During your consultation, you will be giving Dr. LaGrasso information about your health history, but also about your concerns and aesthetic goals for your eyelids. He will want to know how you would like your eyelids to look, and will tell you if that can be achieved with plastic surgery. Together, you will make a treatment plan together.
Asian eyelid surgery will not require an in-patient stay in the hospital. It is actually a very quick procedure that is completed in an out-patient setting in less than an hour.
