Does Asian Eyelid Surgery Leave Scars?

Your eyes are often the first thing someone sees when they look at you. The signs of aging can impact your eyes and make you look older. Fine lines, wrinkles, and skin sagging can all occur due to the natural aging process and poor lifestyle habits. Your eyelids are often a clear indicator of your age. Cosmetic intervention can be highly beneficial as it can take years off your face and improve your aesthetic. Before moving forward, you may wonder, does Asian eyelid surgery leave scars?

Does Asian Eyelid Surgery Leave Scars?

Asian eyelid surgery is a procedure that alters and enhances the shape of your eyelids without leaving scars. People with monolids often opt for Asian eyelid surgery due to its benefits. Monolids are characterized by the lack of a crease over one’s eyelid. The lid is flat from the lash line to your eyebrows. Asian eyelid surgery can safely and effectively create a double eyelid. The procedure targets a small area so the incisions are small and strategically placed. Because of this, there is no visible scarring. Taking care of your skin and focusing on your recovery post-procedure also helps minimize the appearance of scars.

Asian Eyelid Surgery

Asian eyelid surgery enhances the look of your eyes without scars. The eyelid surgeon in Los Angeles identifies the natural fold in your eyelid before the procedure. The incision is made over your natural eyelid fold which helps minimize scarring. For those without a fold entirely, the incision placement will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation.

The incision placement is important as it can determine the appearance of your eyes post-surgery. There are a number of different factors that you can choose from in order to achieve your desired look. Your eyelid surgeon will discuss your desired lid crease height, whether it’s nasally tapered or parallel, and whether you want a slight or parallel lateral crease. Once the modifications have been made during surgery, the incisions are closed with fine, non-absorbable sutures that are removed within one week of surgery.

Benefits of Asian Eyelid Surgery

There are a number of benefits of Asian eyelid surgery. Consider the following if you are unhappy with the look of your eyes.

  • Enhanced Shape: The shape of your eyelids can enhance the look of your eyes. The procedure is effective in making the eyelids look more defined which can make your eyes look rounder and more open.
  • Rested Appearance: Some eyelids may result in a more tired-looking appearance. The shape itself, excess skin, fat, and even loosened eyelid muscles can impact the look of your eyes. Eyelid surgery can help you look more awake and rested.
  • Improved Symmetry: For those who have uneven eyelids, eyelid surgery can provide symmetry to your eyes. Symmetry is seen as a sign of beauty and can improve your facial aesthetic.
  • Longer-Looking Lashes: A low set monolid can be heavy on your lashes. Eyelid surgery can make your eyelashes look longer as it opens up your lid more.
  • Makeup Options: Having double eyelids can make it much easier to experiment with eye makeup. There are a number of different makeup looks you can achieve post-surgery.
