REASONS TO UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE
Contrary to popular belief, most Asian patients do not undergo eyelid surgery to appear more “westernized.” Monolids can sometimes result in a permanently sleepy, disinterested, or unhappy facial expression, which is what most patients aim to improve upon.
Asian eyelid surgery creates subtle, natural-looking creases that make the eyes look bigger and wider, while still maintaining its inherent Asian characteristics. This procedure can help improve the following:
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
ASIAN EYELID SURGERY PROCEDURE
With this technique, Dr. Sedgh will begin by creating precise incisions on the eyelid. He will then carefully remove any excess skin, fat, and other soft tissues before attaching the skin and muscle to the tarsus, which is a dense connective tissue found in the eyelid.
The amount of skin to be removed will depend on the desired height of the crease. The incisions, meanwhile, will be hidden in the crease of the lid so that they will be virtually imperceptible once healed. Due to the higher level of customization, this technique is generally preferred by most surgeons. It also yields longer-lasting results.
This technique is a less invasive method for achieving double eyelids. Also known as the Double Suture and Twisting technique or DST, this approach involves the strategic placement of sutures on the eyelids to compress the upper lid structure and create a natural-looking crease.
While DST can yield visible and highly natural results, it can have its limitations. Generally, it is only recommended for a very specific type of candidate.
You may observe some bruising and swelling in the immediate area after the procedure, along with minimal discomfort or pain. To effectively manage these, Dr. Sedgh will prescribe medications and specific postoperative instructions to help alleviate these symptoms and facilitate a speedier and more comfortable recovery.
Usually, most patients find that they are presentable enough to return to their daily activities after about 7 to 10 days. Dr. Sedgh will personally examine you and assess your recovery progress through regularly scheduled follow-up appointments from the first postoperative day up to a year after the eyelid surgery. These meetings are usually conducted at his clinic, over the phone, or via video conferencing.
