Eyelid surgery removes fat, excess skin, and muscle from around the eye. This can provide a younger-looking and “more awake” appearance. “Blepharoplasty” (eyelid surgery) will also reduce the puffiness that occurs as people get older. Bags that form underneath the eyes can be reduced with a related procedure in which only fat is removed, known as “transconjuctival blepharoplasty.”
Eyelid surgery has become popular among many people of Asian descent. For those who wish to add a crease to their eyes, “double eyelid surgery” may be the right solution. This surgery is designed to make the eyes appear somewhat rounder and larger, exposing more of the eyelashes, and making it easier for women to apply eyeliner. Contrary to popular belief, the surgical addition of a crease and removal of puffiness is not intended to erase the ethnicity of your face.
