This : This will be a decision you will make with your plastic surgeon. Some of this will depend on your own anatomy of your eyelid and brow position. You need to consult with a plastic surgeon in your area. Best of luck to you. www.natureredefined.com.

Some : Some asians want to keep their low (1-3 mm) lid crease and some want to raise the crease to a more "westernized" height of 10-12mm. Discuss at length with your surgeon. Once raised, it is not easy to lower it back. www.asoprs.org.

Asian blepharoplasty: You can discuss your surgical goals with your surgeon. It is possible for patients to voice their opinions on the height of their crease. Have your eyelids evaluated by a board certified surgeon with expertise in these procedures.
