The most requested plastic surgery procedure by the NYC Plastic Surgeon’s Asian patients is indeed Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery (“Asian Blepharoplasty”). In fact, in the Asian population in Asia (China, Japan, Korea, etc.), the European Union, and the United States, Asian Double Eyelid plastic surgery (“Asian Blepharoplasty”) is also the most requested plastic surgery by Asian patients.

Approximately 50 percent of all Asians are born with what is called a “single eyelid” type while the remaining Asian population is born with an upper eyelid crease. The upper eyelid crease type is traditionally called the “double eyelid” type.

During your Asian Eyelid Double Fold plastic surgery consultation with the NYC Asian Eyelid surgeon the majority of the time you spend with Dr. Adam Schaffner will be on determining the specific shape and height of the eyelid crease you are seeking as a result of the Asian Double Fold plastic surgery. Every single Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery is customized for the patient by the NYC Plastic Surgeon. No two procedures are alike.

There are two eyelid shapes that can be obtained by NYC Asian eyelid Plastic Surgeon Dr. Adam Schaffner with Double Asian Eyelid Surgery: oval (tapered crease) or round (parallel crease). The most common choice of patients from NYC and Manhattan as well as other boroughs of New York City (including Queens, Staten Island, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Long Island, etc.) is the oval shape resulting from the “tapered crease”. The height of the crease refers to the distance from the eyelashes and is divided into small, medium, and large. The height of the Asian eyelid is typically 2-5 mm from the eyelashes while that of the Western eyelid is 7-10 mm. Every effort will be made by NYC Asian Double Eyelid Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Adam Schaffner to achieve your desired shape and height.

Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery is largely classified into two types of surgical procedures: incision and minimally invasive (commonly referred to as “incisionless” or “non-incision” Asian Double Eyelid Surgery even though this is not an accurate description). Minimally invasive Asian Double Eyelid Fold Surgery (“suture method”) is recommended to Asian patients who have thin eyelid skin, little eyelid fat, and tight eyelid skin. Even though non-incisional technique has spot scar and minimal recovery period, the fold can disappear. Incision Double Fold Surgery is recommended to Asian patients who have thick eyelid skin or puffy and fatty eyelid or redundant skin or who are not willing to risk having the fold disappear after having the minimally invasive approach performed.

  • How long does the Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery procedure take? Asian Eyelid Double Fold surgery typically takes one hour and is performed on an outpatient basis at the NYC Asian Eyelid Double Plastic Surgeon’s fully accredited Surgery Center.
  • What should I expect after Asian Blepharoplasty surgery? Stitches are removed by the plastic surgeon 5 to 7 days following the Asian Eyelid Double Fold procedure. The fold is present immediately. Recovery takes approximately 10 to 14 days until the majority of the bruising is gone (bruising varies from patient to patient).
