Eyes Wide Open — The Transformational Power of Double Eyelid Surgery

Double Eyelid Surgery with Dr. Valenzuela

Asian eyelids possess distinctive anatomical features and, as a result, exhibit a unique appearance. When it comes to Asian blepharoplasty, frequently referred to as "Double Eyelid Surgery," it's crucial to recognize and address these differences. Failing to do so can lead to unsatisfactory outcomes. Dr. Valenzuela is dedicated to providing personalized solutions tailored to your specific needs.

Distinguishing Features

What is Double Eyelid Surgery?

Double eyelid surgery, also known as Asian blepharoplasty or double-fold surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to create a distinct upper eyelid crease in individuals who do not naturally possess one. This procedure is particularly popular among individuals of Asian descent but is also sought after by people from diverse backgrounds looking to enhance the appearance of their eyelids.

The primary goal of double eyelid surgery is to create a more defined and aesthetically pleasing eyelid contour. It involves the creation of an eyelid crease that is typically positioned higher than the original eyelid margin. The presence of this crease can result in a more open and awake appearance, enhancing the overall attractiveness of the eyes.

What is the difference between an Asian Eyelid and a Non-Asian Eyelid?

Asian eyelids often exhibit distinct characteristics that set them apart from non-Asian eyelids. These unique features include variations in the eyelid crease, the distribution and position of fat within the lid, and the presence of an epicanthal fold. Understanding these distinctive characteristics is essential for tailoring Asian blepharoplasty to each patient's specific needs and desires, ensuring that the procedure aligns with their aesthetic goals while preserving the unique features of Asian eyelids.

Eyelid Crease: The eyelid crease is a pivotal aspect when discussing double eyelid surgery. Asian eyelids can manifest in various ways concerning the crease. Some individuals may have a well-defined eyelid crease that extends across the eyelid, albeit often positioned lower compared to non-Asian lids. Others may not have a crease at all, while some might have a partial crease. Additionally, there are cases where one eyelid possesses a crease while the other does not. During your consultation with Dr. Valenzuela, a thorough assessment of your eyelid crease type and your desired post-surgery outcome will be discussed to ensure the best possible results.

Eyelid Fat: Asian eyelids typically contain more fat, situated lower within the eyelid, in contrast to non-Asian eyelids. It's important to preserve a significant amount of this fat to maintain the characteristic "Asian" appearance of the lid. In double eyelid surgery, much less fat is usually removed or sculpted compared to procedures targeting non-Asian eyelids.

A follow-up post-operative visit is scheduled for one week after the surgery to monitor your progress and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Beyond Appearances

Double Eyelid Surgery Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery following double eyelid surgery typically proceeds without significant issues. In the initial one to two days post-surgery, most patients may experience mild discomfort similar to a headache. This discomfort can be effectively managed with over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol or ibuprofen.

Dr. Valenzuela employs dissolvable stitches, which naturally dissolve within approximately ten days. During this period, patients may also experience bruising and swelling, for which we recommend the use of ice packs during the initial days after the procedure. Within a couple of days post-surgery, patients can resume approximately 80 percent of their usual activities, including driving. However, it's advisable to refrain from strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for one week. Your first post-operative appointment is scheduled for one week after the surgery, during which Dr. Valenzuela will assess your progress and may remove any remaining restrictions.

Double Eyelid SurgeryFrequently Asked Questions

Scarring visibility post-surgery is a common concern. Dr. Valenzuela's approach to double eyelid surgery usually involves making an incision along the eyelid crease. This incision is strategically placed within the natural skin fold of the upper eyelid, where it blends seamlessly. Given the thinness of this skin, it tends to heal without forming noticeable scars, even in patients with a history of keloid formation.
