    This patient has noted long-standing asymmetry in his upper eyelids. He wish to undergo a procedure which will allow for him to look more symmetric, but his main concern was to maintain a natural looking appearance. He underwent an Asian eyelid surgery. This procedure is quite complex and challenging given the asymmetry, but we are able to provide a great result.  His right eyelid had a new crease created to better match his left, and his left was also slightly modified at the same time. This patient was able to go back to work within a week and is healing well. This picture was only taken one month after surgery. He still has some swelling but you can certainly see how the results are thus far. The patient is extremely thrilled with his results.

    This female of Asian descent wished to undergo a double eyelid surgery (Asian eyelid surgery) to help improve her appearance. Her low set fold was causing her eyelid skin to touch and drape over her eyelashes, making it very uncomfortable, difficult to see at times and also in putting on eyeliner and makeup.  A double eyelid (Asian eyelid) surgery was performed in the office under local anesthesia. Notice the naturally looking and symmetric results just 3 months after surgery.

    She had excess skin in both upper lids and no visible lid crease. She also had asymmetry in eyelids as seen in her before photos where more skin was draped over her lashes in her right upper lid than her lift. A carefully designed, nasally tapered upper lid Asian eyelid surgery was performed to create a higher lid crease and more show of her eyelid skin above her lashes.

    After Photo-Asian Eyelid Surgery Patient 5

    The patient had significant upper lid skin and wished to have it removed to help improve her vision and also to look more younger and awake. She had no visible upper lid creases (had a “single upper” lid) and wished to undergo “double eyelid” surgery.

    This photo is taken one month after surgery. She desired a lid crease position around 6mm in both upper lids and you can notice that she is healing well. There is still some swelling in the upper lid which is common in Asian eyelid surgery for up to 2 months. Although the results are subtle, she now has a double eyelid and also sees better and appears more awake.

    Procedure performed: Asian eyelid (double eyelid) surgery.

  • Before Photo-Asian Eyelid Surgery Patient 4
    After Photo-Asian Eyelid Surgery Patient 4

    This patient has always had “full” upper lids such that he has always had a mild amount of skin nearly draping above his eyelashes. He wished to undergo a conservative procedure that would allow for him to see better while also allowing for him to look closer to what he looked like years prior. He had low set eyelid creases with a double lid and wished to keep them at that position after surgery. The photo on the right was taken 3 weeks after surgery and you can already see the improvement in his upper lids. You can also see the very little swelling that he has. Some patients swell more than others after surgery, but Dr. Zoumalan uses rapid-recovery techniques to allow for optimal healing after surgery.

    Preoperative diagnosis: Upper lid dermatochalasia (extra skin) resulting in lid hooding and ptosis.

    Procedure performed: Bilateral upper lid blepharoplasty.

    Not all patients with Asian lids wish for a double eyelid during surgery. For instance, this particular patient was having difficulty seeing with the extra skin hanging over his eyelashes. He had no visible creases present on evaluation. The goal of this surgery was to carefully remove his excess skin but also to preserve his appearance of having no visible creases. By carefully removing his skin while respecting the natural appearance he wished to maintain, he was able to see and look better.

    Preoperative diagnosis: Upper eyelid blepharoptosis (dermatochalasia), no visible upper lid creases.

    Procedure performed: Upper eyelid blepharoptosis repair/blepharoplasty while preserving no visible creases and avoiding a double lid formation after surgery.

    This child was born with a very ptotic eyelid which was blocking her from using the left eye. She would rub her left eye in an effort to try to help lift it up. She underwent a frontalis fixation ptosis surgery which requires the use of silicone suspension rods to keep her left eyelid elevated. She did well and regained vision in her left eye.

    Preoperative diagnosis: Upper lid and brow ptosis resulting in difficulty seeing well and a tired appearance.

    Procedure performed: Bilateral upper lid blepharoplasty, upper lid ptosis repair, and upper lid internal browpexy (upper lid brow ptosis repair done through an internal suture technique).
