How common is assymetrical creases after Asian eyelid surgery? I'm thinking of having Asian eyelid surgery, but i'm worried about my eyes looking mismatched. It happened to a friend. Her doctor told her it could take 6 months for results to be final, but

In brief: Assymetrical

Assymetrical creases are not at all uncommon with asian eyelid surgery.
You should consult with a few plastic surgeons with experience with the procedure. It can happen to any patient or any surgeon and therefore it is important to have a good discussion before surgery regarding handling that issue should it arise. Sometimes a revision surgery is indicated. Fortunately, a minor degree of asymmetry is well tolerated as eyelids, similar to many of our other facial features are rarely completely symmetric with or without surgery.

In brief: Asian blepharoplasty

Asymmetries are a possibility after Asian blepharoplasty especially if the underlying cause was not diagnosed preoperatively.
Have your eyelids evaluated by a board certified surgeon with expertise in these procedures.

In brief: In

In the hands of an experienced eyelid surgeon, i find this to be a relatively rare complication.
Asymmetry can usually be avoided. Find a local eyelid specialist in your area at www.Asoprs.Org.

In brief: Not commom.

You should be evaluated and treated by an oculofacial plastics surgeon (its a sub-specialty within ophthalmology).
These doctors have a lot more experience dealing with eyelids than the general ophthalmologist. If done correctly there shouldn't be any assymetry.

In brief: Asymmetry

Asymmetry occurs more often in nature than symmetry.
So, the answer to your question is: very common. However, the degree of asymmetry may vary and if signficant could warrant revisionary surgery.
