Blepharoplasty in Asian patients

It poses a major challenge in eyelid surgery, since Asian patients often have different anatomical characteristics than Western patients. A very frequent reason for consultation is the lack of the superior supratarsal fold, known simply as a fold of the upper eyelid or fold of beauty. In some cases the fold is present on only one side, or it is notoriously asymmetric. In these cases, double eyelid surgery is indicated, which in addition to resolving any excess fat or excess skin, is responsible for recreating the supratarsal fold. In some patients it is necessary to treat a fold that forms in the medial canthus of the eyes to achieve eyes that impress a little larger and more round. In this type of surgery to achieve a good aesthetic result and to look natural, a high-precision millimetric surgery must be performed.
