Asian age correction (eastern blepharoplasty) is a procedure aimed at creating a supratarsal fold, which is present in most people of the European race, but is absent in about 50% of Asians. The essence of surgery is the rearrangement of the orbital septum and the elevation of aponeurosis (lifting muscles of the eyelid). Like any surgery, the procedure has its own risks and limitations, so it is important to prepare well and follow the recommendations of the doctor.
Double-eyelid blepharoplasty is a voluntary procedure that is indicated to any patient in the absence of a supraplural fold. Surgery is performed by those who wish to have a rounded eye view. This is primarily an aesthetic procedure.
The procedure is shown for the following disadvantages:
Earlier Asian-age correction techniques focused on creating a high fold, removing fat, and excising excess skin. Modern Asian surgery is aimed at creating a natural and harmonious double age suitable for the Asian face - the fold is made clear and delineated. This approach allows you to create natural features, without obvious signs of surgery.
There are two methods for treating Asian eye shape:
The choice of method depends on the individual needs of the patient and the preferences of the surgeon.
Correction of upper and lower eyelids is also distinguished. In the first case, epicanthus plastic is carried out. In the second, excess dermis and fatty fiber are excised. If necessary, mixed plastic is carried out, which allows you to significantly change your appearance towards the European type.
A well-performed surgery makes your eyes more open. The distance between the eyes is visually reduced.
Eyelid westernization is performed in following stages:
The next step is to form a fold. The skin is fixed by nodal sutures to muscular aponeurosis, which lifts the upper eyelid. In some patients with ptosis, correction of depression is required, otherwise the upper eyelid would remain overhanging after surgery, which would lead to a non-optimal result.
The recovery period after surgery on the eyelids is usually 7-14 days. After the surgery, a bandage is usually applied to the eyes for several hours. Postoperative care is necessary to reduce swelling, hematomas, and discomfort. Patients are advised to follow the doctor's instructions, avoid smoking and drinking alcohol.
Surgical correction of the Asian eyelid is aimed at creating or strengthening the fold of the upper eyelid in patients with Asian eye shape. As a result, the eyes acquire an amygdala shape, they look more attractive, and the patient looks younger. The results become visible one month after surgery, and the final effect is achieved 6-12 months later.
In the fold of the eyelid, along the incision line, a small, usually barely visible scar will remain, which disappears 1-1.5 years after surgery. The obtained result may weaken over time, since the aging process contributes to the loss of elasticity and skin turgor.
