What is asian eyelid surgery?

Supratarsal fold

Cosmetic_surgery
Asian eyelid surgery or Asian blepharoplasty is surgery to either create or enhance the appearance of an upper eyelid crease or fold. An upper eyelid crease is present in roughly half of Asians (depending on ethnicity) and Asian eyelid surgery is directed at creating this look on patients either with low fold or no fold at all.

How is cosmetic eyelid surgery done?

Blepharoplasty

Cosmetics
In general, eyelid surgery entails removal of a small amount of skin and fat in the eyelids. The incision in the upper eyelid is placed in a natural crease and blends well. In the lower lid, the incision is hidden just below the lashes. In cases when no skin needs to be removed from the lower lid, the incision can be made inside the lower eyelid.

Dr. Tito Vasquez answered:

Is eyelid surgery worth the trouble?

Depends on you

Anesthesia
Worth is dependent on the value this particular procedure has to you. The price is dependent upon the complexity and time it takes to complete the procedure, anesthesia, and the facility fee. It involves a certain amount of staff, consumed items, and the maintenance of equipment. It also involves the training and experience of that surgeon. Only you can decide if that is worth it to you.

Dr. Joseph A. Mele answered:

What is it like to have eyelid surgery?

Simple

Dr_mele_eyelid_lift
When performed for the correct reasons by a qualified doctor the procedure is very straight forward. The upper eyelids usually respond well to the removal of excess skin, and sometimes a little fat. The lower eyes - visa versa. I perform the procedure under local with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on my patients preference. Bruising lasts a week or so, and there is usually little pain.

The cost of eyelid surgery will vary depending on what you have done (upper or lower lids, or both), if a general anaesthetic is required, facility where it is performed and where you live. A ball park for doing upper or lower lids is between $3500 and $5000.

The cost of cosmetic eyelid surgery varies by surgeon and demographic location. Also, every surgeon is different and performs the surgery slightly different. Make sure that your surgeon is board certified and trained in this type of surgery. http://www.dassmd.com/eyelid-surgery/index.html
