In brief: Asian blepharoplasty

A good start would be: where did you receive your education? What board certification(s) do you hold? How many asian blepharoplasties did you perform this past year? May i see before/after pictures.
May i speak to patients of yours? Which technique do you recommend? (suture, partial, incisional) what kind of fold do you recommend? (infold, on, outfold). What can i expect from surgery?

In brief: Explain what u want.

Make sure you explain to the surgeon what you are looking for. "asian eyelid surgery" entails many things.
Removing the fold of skin (epicanthal fold) above the corner of your eye is sometimes done, sometimes not. Creating a "double eyelid" entails creating a nonexistent crease on the eyelid to resemble a "western" eyelid. Make sure the surgeon understands want you want to look like!
