Cosmetic Eye Lift Surgery

Cosmetic eye lift surgery by Oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad is not a “one-shape-suits-all” procedure. His approach to cosmetic eye lift surgery is as diverse as his patients, and many decisions will be influenced by the patient’s age, genetic predispositions, gender, race, health condition and personal preferences.

In addition to the individual variations in people, it is important to note that some people want a certain look that might not be inherent to their particular background, but one that they find desirable. For example, some women find the most desirable eye shape to be an almond-shaped eye, for its exotic appearance — but again, such a feature is not for everyone.

As an Oculofacial plastic surgeon, Dr. Amiya Prasad is a Super Specialist in Oculofacial plastic surgery and places a great deal of important in listening to every patient’s story. The end result of the cosmetic eye lift surgery procedures he performs is the consensus between him and the patient in terms of what will look best for an individual’s face.

Cosmetic Eye Lift Surgery — Special Considerations for Individual Designs

Asian Cosmetic Eye Lift Surgery

The Asian eyelid is different from the Caucasian eyelid in many ways. One of the most frequent mistakes plastic surgeons have made is “Americanizing” or “Europeanizing” the Asian eyelid, which results in a very unnatural appearance. Dr. Prasad uses his expertise in Eyelid Surgery to provide Asian patients with a natural eyelid fold. The “double eyelid” surgical approach preserves their ethnic appearance while allowing them to have a beautiful upper eyelid crease that enhances their features.

Men’s Cosmetic Eye Lift Surgery

As the world of business continues to become more youth-oriented and competitive, men are realizing that they need to project a powerful and energetic image in order to keep up with things. With the media’s focus on appearance, many men recognize that an optimal physical appearance translates into a better chance for professional and social success.

Since the eyes are a focal point of the face, their shape and appearance weigh heavily when someone is determining whether someone looks reliable, hard-working, creative and dynamic.

For this reason, many men turn to eye lift surgery to give them a more youthful appearance. However, many surgeons make the mistake of “feminizing” the eyes. An experienced specialist such as Dr. Prasad knows how to alter his surgical approach so that a man’s blepharoplasty (eye lift surgery) makes him retain a masculine appearance.

Cosmetic Eye Lift Surgery for People of Color

Dr. Prasad’s specialized approach for people of color minimizes their two main problems requiring special consideration — avoiding the formation of keloids (raised unattractive scars) when their skin heals and also reducing the tendency to have long-lasting skin color changes when they heal.

Another feature given consideration for persons of color is that they may have more prominent eyes with deeper creases. In this situation, the upper eye lift surgery has to be adjusted for the height of the eyelid and the amount of skin that is taken off has to be reduced.
