Asian Eyelid Surgery Performed by New York Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad
The Asian eyelid is different from the Caucasian eyelid in many ways, which is why Asian eyelid surgery (Asian blepharoplasty) is so unique. One of the most frequent mistakes that plastic surgeons have made is “Americanizing” or “Europeanizing” the eyelids. This results in a very unnatural appearance.
Dr. Prasad uses his expertise in eyelid surgery to provide Asian patients with naturally appearing eyelids. Asian individuals also often seek the “double eyelid fold” procedure, which gives the upper eyelid a visible crease when the eye is open. This change to the upper eyelid makes it easier to apply makeup and is considered to be a desirable aesthetic appearance in many Asian cultures.
Asian eyes require delicate finesse with the typical epicanthal fold that lies in front of the eye so that proper rejuvenation does not mar the natural beauty of this type of eye. Dr. Prasad is well-versed in Asian eyelid surgery and has performed blepharoplasty for many of his Asian patients who have requested it.
