Facial surgeons in Turkey have ventured in a new type of cosmetic care catering to the unique needs of Asian patients. Asian eyelid surgery—also know as double eyelid surgery—is the most commonly requested facial cosmetic surgery by Asian patients.
For many Asian societies, the presence of a crease in the eyelid is seen as aesthetically desirable and is undoubtedly a reflection of modern day culture. Many patients of Chinese/ Japanese descent undergo Asian blepharoplasty or use eyelid glue/taping to attain a skin crease.
Plastic surgery Turkey is well developed and becoming more and more popular and affordable.
Asian eyelid surgery in Turkey emerged as a specialized eyelid treatment designed to enhance Asian beauty by creating an eyelid fold while embracing the integrity of the Asian facial appearance.
The term blepharoplasty pertains to the eyelid refashioning; and this type of facial cosmetic surgery is carried out on many patients of both Asian and mixed oriental descent and is now the most commonly requested cosmetic procedure on individuals of Oriental decent.
Many patients of Asian origin have an anatomically unique upper lid appearance, commonly know as a ‘single fold.’ Most Asians view a ‘single fold’ to be less attractive, when compared to more westernized (Caucasian) look of a ‘double fold’ lid.
The Asian double fold procedure is a customized form of upper eyelid surgery Turkey referred to by many terms including Asian Double Fold Procedure, Double Eyelid Procedure and Asian Blepharoplasty. Cosmetic surgeons of Turkey are very experienced in treating this unique procedure.
Other patients also seek to eliminate the puffy and tired appearance associated with a fatty upper lid.
Owing to the fact that this is a desirable aesthetic facial feature among many Asian culture, this procedure for the upper eyelid makes the eyes appear more open, alert, less tired—and easier to apply eye shadow.
What does Asian eye surgery accomplish?
Asian Blespharoplasty in Turkey is a specialized form of Blepharoplasty with the same goals of standard upper lid Blepharoplasty often achieved—removal of excess skin and fat—but with a distinctive difference. The Asian double fold blepharoplasty creates a crease in the upper lid.
This crease—known as supratarsal fold—is one element that distinguishes an Asian eyelid from a Caucasian eyelid, as it’s considered more physically appealing and desirable for both women and men.
Creating a supratasral fold can make the eye appear larger, more expressive—and can enhance overall facial allure.
What does Asian eyelid surgery Turkey involve?
Each procedure has its own unique circumstances and particular techniques, but most often than not, an Asian eyelid surgery involves the following:
- Designing: this is where the skin is marked to accurately outline the surgical plan.
- Sedation- most cosmetic surgeons in Turkey use twilight sedation. The patient is injected intravenously with sleeping medications to help alleviate the anxiety and allow for more comfortable experience.
- Local anesthetic injection: numbing medication is then injected into the surgical area so that the patient doesn’t feel any pain during the surgery.
Asian eyelid surgery in Turkey usually takes about an hour. However, patients may be required to stay two more hours for observation. The procedure may take even longer if it is done along with other surgeries.
Types of Asian eyelid surgery in Turkey
Asian eyes vary in terms of the epicanthal fold, amount of skin, fat and other important structural elements. One procedure does not suit all diverse physical attributes of all Asian patients. Facial surgeons in Turkey offer extensive experience with Asian eyelid surgery and have performed double eyelid blepharoplasty for many of Asian patients from all over the world.
The upper eyelid crease in what determines if the patient will receive a single eyelid (monolid) or double eyelid. Asian blepharoplasty, or double eyelid surgery pertains to several kinds of upper lid procedures—however the primary focus is predominately the upper eyelid crease.
An Asian individual many have one of several types of eyelid creases—or can have 2 different types, one for each eyelid. When faced with a patient having 2 different types of eyelid, eyelid surgery experts in Turkey aim to achieve similarity between the two eyes—and to define and sometimes accentuate the eyelid creases.
The 6 main types of Asian eyelid creases:
Absent eyelid crease
This is known as the monolid because there’s no distinct eyelid crease separating the lid into two parts. Double eyelid surgery is designed to produce a crease in the upper eyelid, which offers a profound optical illusion of making the eyes look larger and brighter—hence this results in appearing more approachable and friendly.
Partial eyelid crease
There is a crease but it isn’t well outlined and it may not extend across the eyelid. With age, the partial crease can become more noticeable as the skin above the crease becomes looser.
Multiple eyelid creases
Double eyelid surgery in Turkey can be employed to merge multiple creases to form a single one.
Tapering eyelid crease
A tapering eyelid crease describes the shape of the fold that may occur either naturally or be surgically created in the upper eyelid.
Tapering eyelid crease with lateral flare
This type of crease becomes narrower towards the inner corner of the eyes. A tapering eyelid crease with a lateral flare is when the outer area of the eyelid platform is wider than the one at the central position.
Parallel eyelid crease
This occurs when the inner corner of the eyelid crease does not narrow as much as the tapering creases.
Asian eyelid procedure techniques
Double fold eyelid surgery is largely performed via two surgical techniques: incision and non-incision.
During Asian blepharoplasty procedure, a local anesthesia is administered with IV sedation. Some patients may be required to open their eyelids mid surgery. This enables the doctor to observe how the crease is forming and allows him to make adjustments accordingly.
The surgeon may decide to for the incisional method to create the fold in there is extra fat and skin on the upper eyelid of a patient. During this approach, the incision in question is placed on the upper eyelid and a small amount of fat is usually removed. This incisional approach will help define the crease and prevent the area from hallowing out.
Non-incision double fold surgery (suture method) is advised to whom has thin eyelid skin, little eyelid fat and tight eyelid skin. Despite the obvious benefit of non-surgical technique of not developing a scar and achieving minimal recovery period, the fold can disappear.
During this particular method, the surgeon makes small openings in the skin instead of placing an incision to remove the skin from the upper eyelid. A stitch is applied to attach the skin of the upper eyelid to the underlying lavator muscle. This muscle lifts the eyelid. The skin of the eyelid will fold in when the eyes are opened after the surgery.
Who is a good candidate for Asian eyelid surgery?
Creating a natural-looking eyelid must take into consideration factors such as the age and gender of the patient. An important decision before embarking on Asian blepharoplasty in Turkey is determining whether you are a candidate for an incisional or a non-incisional procedure. Good candidates for Asian eyelid surgery are adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles. Moreover, they are healthy individuals with realistic goals as to what the surgery can achieve. There are a number of aspects of Asian eyelid surgery for younger patients to consider when determining your candidacy for this procedure.
Below are some of the determining factors:
– The size of the supratarsal show- should not be greater than 3mm, anything greater than this size can cause the upper eyelid to appear heavy or puffy.
– The supratarsal fold should be crisp, but not too deep.
– The outer edge of the fold should taper off gradually and not turn downward abrupty.
– Patients with hooded upper lids or “mongolian folds”
– The supratarsal fold should be crisp, but not too deep
