Asian eye surgery is a procedure in which people with small eyes, droopy eyelids, and no eyelid crease can gain bigger, more attractive eyes. It’s also common for people of Asian decent to sometimes want a more Western look to their eyes, or to eliminate tissue that’s interfering with their eyesight.
This treatment is a very intricate and delicate process that should only be put in the hands of the most skillful surgeons like Dr. Kami Parsa in Beverly Hills. This isn’t a cookie-cutter procedure; each individual is different and having an expert perform the treatment will give you the best-customized results.
What To Expect During Asian Eye Surgery
Asian eye surgery is an outpatient procedure that can be performed with sedation. Typically, conscious sedation works well at allowing you to relax and put you in a twilight stage of consciousness. A local anesthetic will also be used in the area.
The procedure will take approximately 30 minutes to one hour during which time Dr. Para will make an incision on the eyelid, position the skin properly, possibly remove some fat, and then reattach the skin with sutures, in a way that the resultant scar is hidden in the inner corner of the eye and eyelashes of the lower eyelid.
What To Expect After Surgery
The recovery for this procedure will depend on the specific techniques that were used during the surgery. Most patients will experience initial swelling and bruising for up to two weeks. During the healing process, the height of the eyelid fold will decrease over time and about two months post-op is when the skin will settle, and you’ll see the final results.
