Asian Eyelid in San Francisco
More and more Asian patients are expressing interest in double eyelid surgery. Not all Asians have have the same appearance of their eyelids. When patients come to me they express a preference for a specific look based on their specific ethnicity, for example Chinese, or Japanese, or Korean, etc. A person who is Filipino will have a different fold than a person of cheese heritage, and so on.
Most, who perform Asian eyelid procedures, do so by giving the same result for everyone. Everyone tends to look western; however, the patient’s ethnic background, and desire, must be taken into consideration. A slight change in technique can be made to create a more “customized” outcome according to the patient’s wishes resulting in a more natural look.
This procedure can be performed in the office and under local anesthesia.
