Asian Blepharoplasty-Double Eyelid Surgery

Best Asian Blepharoplasty-Double Eyelid Surgery in India

What Is Asian Blepharoplasty?

Asian blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery procedure is a well-known surgical procedure in India for adding a crease on the fold of the existing eyelid of the eyes of Asian patients. Sometimes also referred to as Asian eyelid surgery or simply double eyelid surgery. Such correction procedure works on the skills and training of expert cosmetic surgeons in India who can create a natural-looking eyelid fold giving the appearance of a more naturally open eye.


According to various studies, many people are born without a crease in their eyelids. In fact, he or she might be the only one without the crease in their family. They might want to overcome this condition and choose surgery so they could look similar. Other such patients might just want to improve their physical appearance by changing the way their eyes look. They might want an easier way to apply eye makeup or widening the appearance of their eyes. The majority of patients in India, who have the procedure are interested in enhancing and retaining their Asian appearance.


How Is Asian Blepharoplasty Surgery Performed?

The type of procedure used at our clinics in India would vary depending on the cosmetic surgeon’s skills and the specific condition of the eyelid of the patient. Because Asian eyes structure is different than those having Western eyes, double eyelid surgery can be challenging. Adding a crease fold on the eyelid can be a complex procedure and a good outcome means finding a top celebrity surgeon in India who is well-versed and does many such surgeries every year.


Asian blepharoplasty commonly is an outpatient surgery in India that will only take a couple of hours. Patients can generally return home after the double eyelid surgery at our clinics in Mumbai.


The most common incisions for the surgery include:

  • One long incision, made across the entire eyelid of the patient.
  • A series of short, incisions across the eye in dotted formation.
  • Using sutures to draw up the eyelid and create a crease without making any cuts to the crease. 
  • Each of such surgical techniques has some unique benefits. 
  • The use of these surgical use will vary based on what our experienced plastic surgeons and patient decide is best for them.


The double eyelid surgery is done using any one of the following two techniques in India:

  1. Suture Ligation 
  2. External Incision


These techniques are effective for double eyelid surgery procedures at our clinics in India. However, the specific needs of a patient would be the deciding factor of which procedure the top cosmetic surgeon chooses. 


  • Suture Ligation Procedure

With suture ligation surgery procedures, the eyelid tissues of a patient will be tied and compressed. This is done after the skin of the eyelid is crimped and altered to create a more appropriately positioned new eyelid crease. 


Furthermore, once the eyelid is positioned in place, the new sutures will be tied to be buried below the skin of the eye. This technique of surgery creates a more static crease. This means that the crease will not soften or move in a motion as the patient would look up and down. But, the results of the static eyelid might go away over time as the eyelid sutures heal.


  • External Incision Procedure

The external incision type of technique makes the crease look more dynamically moving with motion after surgery. A dynamic crease would move and adjust as the patient looks down and up. It is prominently helpful for a patient with heavier eyelids because this type of procedure involves removing the skin around the crease including excess fat and muscle. The plastic surgeon performing the Asian blepharoplasty incision would mark the eyelid with the expected height and proper shape of the crease. As soon as the incision and excision are over the flap muscles of the eye are repositioned to get the desired crease shape and closed with sutures. The healing and recovery process begins after the closure.
