What is an Asian Blepharoplasty?

The majority of Asian men and women have a distinctive attribute known as a ‘single fold’ upper lid. This simply means that these patients either have a barely-noticeable low-lying lid or do not have a crease above the lid at all. 

The Asian blepharoplasty procedure is performed on patients of Asian ethnicities who want to create a more prominent upper eyelid crease. This procedure is often done to enhance the size, expressiveness, and alertness of the patient’s eyes.

An Asian blepharoplasty should be performed by a highly skilled and knowledgeable board-certified plastic surgeon.

What is a Sub-Brow Blepharoplasty?

A sub-brow blepharoplasty is a special type of eyelid lift that focuses on correcting sagging eyelids. The main difference between a traditional eyelid lift and a sub-brow eyelid lift is that this one is best for candidates who have no eyebrow sagging – they’re only seeing sagging skin on the eyelids.

This type of surgery is especially prominent with patients of Asian ethnicities, who have thicker upper eyelid skin and therefore may see more sagging as time goes on. What’s more, this sagging can appear at an early age, with many Asian patients starting to notice sagging in their mid-30s.

What are the Differences?

The main difference between the two blepharoplasty surgeries is what they aim to treat.

The Asian eyelid lift is focused on creating a lid crease in the upper eyelids, which helps add a more alert and expressive appearance. The sub-brow blepharoplasty, on the other hand, is focused on addressing upper eyelid sagging only.Whatever type of blepharoplasty procedure you choose, make sure you select a board certified plastic surgeon who has demonstrable experience in creating stellar results for their Asian patients.
