Asian Eyelid Surgery

HomeAsian Eyelid Surgery

About 50% of individuals of Asian descent are born with a single upper eyelid without the fold or crease. This the natural form of the Asian eye, but some with a single upper eyelid would prefer a different shape for their eyes. Asian eyelid surgery can create the crease or fold in the upper eyelid, making a double eyelid. At City Facial Plastics, we offer Asian eyelid surgery at our clinic on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Advantages of a Double Upper Eyelid

The goal of an Asian eyelid surgery is not to create a Caucasian eye. The objective is to produce a beautiful double eyelid Asian eye that matches and blends with the facial features. With single eyelids, the eyes can look narrow. Adding the small crease can make a significant difference in the overall appearance of the eyes and face. Some advantages of a double upper eyelid include:

I cannot say enough about Dr. Linkov and his staff. From the initial consult to day of surgery and post op appointments, I have had nothing but an outstanding experience. During the consult Dr. Linkov went over everything in detail and was honest compassionate throughout. I didn’t feel rushed and he answered all my questions. Leading up to the surgery, Bianca, the receptionist, was amazing. She was very responsive/professional with all my questions, and all the necessary pre-operative preparations that needed to be done. During the surgery Dr. Linkov and his team were wonderful. I felt comfortable and calm during a long surgery. Dr. Linkov followed up afterwards to make sure I was doing well. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Highly recommend!
