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:
- 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.
