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.

Dr. Linkov is an exceptional facial plastic surgeon, possessing the skill and artistry needed for intricate procedures like Asian eyelid surgery. His experience and attention to detail has created beautiful, natural results for his patients desiring to change the shape of their eyes. If you have been considering adding a crease or fold to your upper eyelid, you can trust the expertise of Dr. Linkov to create the eye shape you desire.

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:

  • Wider eyes
  • A more alert and energetic appearance
  • More options for wearing eye makeup
  • Some people may appear more youthful
  • If excess skin is removed that inhibited clear sight, vision may be improved

Changing the shape of the eye and upper eyelid is a very personal decision. For some, changing their eyes makes them feel more confident and attractive. If you are interested in learning more about Asian eyelid surgery, contact our clinic in NYC. Schedule an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Linkov to determine whether this is the right procedure for you.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
