For many individuals, achieving a wide-eyed and well-rested look is as simple as getting enough sleep every night. However, there are many people who find it a struggle to appear rested and refreshed, as they have drooping, sagging, or single eyelids. This genetic characteristic affects many ethnicities and nationalities, particularly East Asians. Hooded eyelids lack a natural crease, thus creating what’s known as a “single eyelid.” Eyelids that have a natural crease are double eyelids, and typically don’t have the drooping or hooded qualities of a single eyelid.
Whether you have single eyelids or want to transform your drooping eyelids for a more refreshed and revitalized appearance, visit Dr. Corbin at his plastic surgery practices in Beverly Hills and Brea (Orange County). Dr. Corbin is a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience performing Asian blepharoplasty procedures. This unique treatment was created specifically for patients who lack a natural crease, which is a common occurrence within the East Asian communities.
To ensure that patients recover quickly without experiencing bruising and discomfort, Dr. Corbin may utilize a laser during the Asian blepharoplasty procedure. The laser makes for highly effective and precise incisions, which can help Dr. Corbin create the more accurate and natural-looking crease possible. What’s more, a laser blepharoplasty doesn’t necessarily require the use of general anesthesia. The procedure can be done under local, local with sedation, or general anesthesia, based on the patient’s preference and Dr. Corbin’s feedback.
During the procedure, Dr. Corbin will use the laser, or a blade, to make an incision where the crease will be created. Dr. Corbin will then remove any excess fat through the incision, thus removing the hooded or drooping appearance that’s common with single eyelids or older eyes. After trimming away excess skin, Dr. Corbin will seal off the blood vessels and create a fold. The Asian blepharoplasty can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, including lower eyelid lifts, facelifts and more.
While patients in the Asian-American community commonly pursue this blepharoplasty procedure, this cosmetic treatment can also be provided to individuals who have sagging, drooping, or tired eyes. This procedure is ideal for creating a wide-eyed and refreshed look, giving patients a more youthful and energized appearance.
