Does Asian eyelid surgery make the eyes actually bigger, or do they simply appear bigger because there's a fold?

In brief: Not really
This operation does not increase the size of the palpebral aperature but it may give the optical illusion of a more open or alert.

In brief: Asian blepharoplasty
After Asian blepharoplasty, the eyes appear larger because the presence of the crease creates a more open eyed look.

In brief: Depends
Asian eyelid surgery can be performed strictly to create a fold without changing the size of the opening or can be combined with a levator muscle adjustment, therefor increasing the opening of the eye and changing a narrow opening to an almond shape eye.

In brief: Appear bigger
Blepharoplasty does not change the size of the eyes.
The folds can make the eyes seem bigger.

In brief: Appear bigger
When asian eyelid surgery is performed the opening between the upper and lower eyelids is made bigger and the fold on the upper lid is further defined.
The eye itself remains the same size.
