Asian Eyelid Reshaping
Asian eyelid surgery, or Asian blepharoplasty, is a popular surgical procedure to create a natural looking crease in the upper eyelid region. This gives a patient the appearance of having larger, yet natural-appearing, beautiful eyes. Dr. Jay Keni uses only state-of-the-art techniques, depending on a patient’s preference. The goal is to create eyelids that are more harmonious to a patient’s face, while keeping ethnicity and heritage in mind.
Who is a Candidate for Asian Eyelid Surgery or Asian Blepharoplasty?
The best candidates for eyelid surgery are healthy Asian men and women who do not suffer from any pre-existing eye conditions. Patients with an overactive thyroid gland may not qualify for eyelid surgery due to the increased risk of swelling and other problems around the eyes. Eyelid surgery is perfect for patients of any ethnicity who are seeking to improve the appearance of their eyes.
What is the Recovery Like from Asian Eyelid Surgery?
Asian eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is performed in the office using local anesthesia or under moderate sedation in an operating room. Dr. Keni only uses modern state-of-the-art techniques to enhance a patient’s heritage. The techniques used are personalized to each patient’s age and ethnicity.
The procedure is accomplished in an outpatient setting. Most patients return to home after only a few hours. Recovery is usually under one week, at which time patients may return to work and non-strenuous activities. Mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising are common the first two weeks after surgery. Most patients feel confident returning to their public and social lives in 7-10 days. Dr. Jay Keni reduces bruising and recovery time with the use of homeopathic and herbal options. Detailed postoperative and aftercare instructions will be provided to each patient.
