Non Incisional Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery

Technique - This particular procedure is tailored to youthful Asian patients who have eyelids that are thin-skinned.  It is important to note that Asian double eyelid surgeries are readily performed without any incisions or cutting.  Instead, sutures are performed on the inside of the eyelid in order to achieve a wholly new crease appearance. LA Asian Eyelid Surgeon Dr. K. Charles Kim uses either two interwoven suture loops (known as DST) or otherwise will perform five independent fixation-sutures.  The difference and choice depends wholly on the patient’s unique anatomy as well as the shape they desire to achieve. Note that there aren't any scars left by the procedure. Swelling will be very minimal, as well.

Incisional Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery

Technique - (includes partial as well as full-incisional) - This is meant for asian patients with a thicker, more heavy eyelid.  In addition, patients with excess fat in their upper eyelids make for more optimal candidates for this particular technique.

Partial Incision Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery

Technique - With the partial incision, a small cut (5 millimeters) is performed on the mid-lateral area of the patient's eyelid.  This is done along the intended eyelid crease, with excess fatty tissue removed through the incision. The remaining portion of the patient's eyelid crease is then created in much the same way as the non-incision procedure. Note that when utilizing this procedure there are only tiny 5 millimeter scars as well as minimal swelling.


Full Asian Eyelid Double Fold Surgery

Technique - Full Incision procedures are usually recommended by Asian Plastic Surgery specialist Dr. K. Charles Kim when there are thick or excessive eyelid skin areas, fatty deposits, ptosis (also known as droopy eyelids), or even when simply a more proncounced look is desired by the patient. When using a full incision technique, excess skin and fatty deposits are removed. Ptosis can be corrected at this time, as well. Our patients will have a bit of swelling as well as a small scar where the cut was performed.

Epicanthoplasty Surgery

Technique  - Asian eyelid have a unique characteristic that is known as the epicanthal fold. This fold is located at the innermost area of the upper eyelid.

Epicanthoplasty is a surgical technique that can be used to pronounce the length of the patient's eye.  This creates an appearance of a wider eye and is most often utilized alongside the Asian double eyelid surgical procedure. Though there are many different ways of performing this procedure, Dr. Kim has utilized a technique that places the scar-line in the lower eyelash line in order to most optimally mask the scar. This technique is designed to brighten as well as more widely open the area of your eye.
