Asian Eyelid Plastic Surgery: Creating a Double Fold
Caution: Actual Surgery Photos
Dr. Amiya Prasad performs Asian Eyelid Surgery at his Joint Commission approved facilities in New York City and Garden City, Long Island. Asian eyelid surgery is performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation as needed.
Asian eyelid anatomy is unique. Planning the shape of the crease is critically important.
This is the surgeon’s view of the patient undergoing Asian Blepharoplasty. Local anesthetic has been injected under the skin. The right amount of local anesthesia has to be placed and allowed to be absorbed for some time before starting surgery.
After making an incision with a scalpel or laser, Dr. Prasad performs Asian Blepharoplasty using surgical scissors to remove the skin.
In Asian Blepharoplasty the fat prevents a crease from forming properly. This photo shows Dr. Prasad has removed tissue to reveal the fat.
In Asian Blepharoplasty using the incisional technique, Dr. Prasad opens the septum to allow the fat to come forward.
In Asian eyelid surgery, once the fat has come forward, a specific amount is removed. It’s very important to leave enough fat behind to prevent a crease from becoming too high or create a hollow.
After fat is reduced in Asian eye surgery, the levator aponeurosis is revealed. Proper attachment of the skin to this structure is critical to creating a crease or double fold.
In Asian blepharoplasty, sutures are placed carefully with attachment to the levator aponeurosis thereby creating a double fold.
At the completion of the procedure of Asian eyelid surgery, the sutures are placed. There is a small amount of swelling. Ice compresses are used immediately to minimize swelling.
This is an example of a patient immediately after Asian eyelid surgery. The crease can appear higher than the final result because of swelling. Cold compresses are used for 2 days. This patient had no pain.
