Asian Mono Eyelid Surgery Las Vegas
While beautiful in their own right, many Asians (about half) are born with a single upper eyelid (aka mono eyelidor monolid). Many Asians opt for Asian Mono Eyelid surgery in order to create a double upper eyelid crease, more common among Caucasians. The double eyelid crease can produce a wider, rounder look to the eye, while making it easier to apply makeup like eyeshadow and eyeliner.
Optimal candidates for Asian eyelid surgery are those who have only a single upper eyelid and desire a double eyelid crease or those who feel that their crease is too subtle or not even with the other eye. By creating or widening an eyelid crease, the resulting eye appears wider and more rounded. This is because a single eyelid often creates an overhanging skin fold that covers part of the eye and makes the eye appear narrower.
The Asian Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Asian eyelid surgery is a relatively simple procedure wherein your surgeon will remove a small amount of excessive skin, tissue and fat, and surgically create a double eyelid crease. The surgery – usually performed on an outpatient basis – can be performed under local or general anesthesia. After surgery, you will experience some swelling and bruising, however, you’ll usually see the results of your surgery within six weeks. During your consultation, we’ll talk to you about your specific case and the timetable within which you can expect results.
Asian eyelid surgery is a great option for patients who wish to retain their beautiful Asian features but desire a rounder, wider eye and a double eyelid crease. The Asian eyelid surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in many Asian nations, including Japan, China and Korea. As with any cosmetic procedure, you should have reasonable and realistic expectations for your surgery and be in good overall health with no existing ophthalmic conditions.
