Double Eyelid Surgery Newport Beach

Double Eyelid SurgeryThe characteristics unique to an Asian eye include its almond shape and an upper eyelid with no crease, often making the eyes appear small and “sleepy”. The levator muscle helps to open the eye, and in the Asian eye, it is usually inserted too low on the upper eyelid to form a crease.

During double eyelid surgery, the levator muscle is reinserted onto the upper eyelid at a higher position, creating an upper eyelid crease. After double eyelid surgery, the eyes usually also appear larger and more awake. For women, the creation of an upper eyelid crease provides an area to apply eye make-up.
