View Before & Afters

Approximately 50% of the Asian population have a monolid configuration of their upper eyelid that lacks an upper eyelid crease. Also known as a Double Eyelid surgery, Asian blepharoplasty is a group of procedures aimed at creating the upper eyelid crease. Many seeking Asian eyelid surgery near Chicago desire a more dramatic eyelid definition for make-up, a younger appearance, or the removal of sagging skin that is obstructing vision. 

Chicago Double Eyelid Surgery

An Asian blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery, is a group of procedures designed to improve the monolid configuration and establish an upper eyelid crease. To accomplish this goal, three different surgical techniques can be used depending on the characteristics of the eyelids and the presence of excess skin, muscle, and fat.

Using a suture technique, experienced plastic surgeons can create an upper eyelid crease without the need for an incision translating into less recovery time and a lower overall cost. Ideal candidates for this procedure should not have any excess skin or puffiness around the eye.

In patients with excess skin and fat around the eyes, an incisional blepharoplasty is required. This procedure gives the surgeon a greater degree of correction to address multiple aspects of the eyelids. If prominent epicanthal folds (web-like structures at the inner corner of the eye) are present, an epicanthoplasty surgery can be performed.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The ideal candidates for Asian eyelid surgery near Chicago are those in which the upper eyelid drapes too much over the upper part of the iris or those unhappy with the appearance of their upper eyelid. Other candidates include those with excess fat and a puffy appearance of the eyes. Finally, if the upper eyelid folds in towards the eyes, causing the eyelashes to rub against the eye, causing irritation and damage, this is an ideal procedure for you.

Candidates should be in good mental and physical health, non-smokers, and not be on any medication that can increase the complications of surgery. Having realistic expectations of the surgery leads to greater satisfaction with the outcomes.

Recovery From Asian Blepharoplasty Procedures

Depending on whether you choose to undergo a surgical or non-surgical procedure, the recovery timeline can be significantly different.

The non-incisional technique utilizing sutures is associated with minimal to no swelling, and recovery is about ten days. On the other hand, an open or incisional blepharoplasty will typically take two to four weeks before returning to physical activity. Swelling and bruising typically resolve over the two weeks post-surgery, with many returning to work after a week. Recovery time can vary depending on how extensive the surgery is that was performed.

Surgical procedures are associated with risks that are important to understand before proceeding with the procedure. The risks of Asian blepharoplasty include:
