What is Asian Eye Surgery?
To get rid of the sad, tired expression in their eyes, some people in China, Japan, and South Korea have resorted to Asian eye surgery also known as Asian blepharoplasty. The result is a more open, almond-shaped Western gaze, giving a more radiant, youthful appearance. Subsequently, this aesthetic surgery reshapes the skin surrounding the eye, removing excess fat and creating a double palpebral crease.
Procedure for double eyelid surgery at our clinics
An initial consultation with a surgeon specializing in Asian eye surgery in Istanbul, Turkey is necessary to establish the choice of technique best suited to the patient's needs. Generally, all techniques are based on the same principle: the orbicularis muscle membrane (aponeurosis) is attached to the skin of the monolid upper eyelid.
Asian blepharoplasty types
Depending on the type and anatomy of the eyelid, our plastic surgeon in Istanbul, Turkey will determine the type of incision to be applied in order to create the eyelid crease. It is essential to discuss all the patient expectations to define the crease position to be created. The various options are all performed on an outpatient basis and are classified by incision type.
Full incision technique
The full incision technique is based on an incision along the monolid eyelid, treating fat pockets and excess skin. The result is optimal fixation of the eyelid furrow, and it's the most permanent one compared to other methods.
Partial incision technique
Scars are minimal, even invisible. They are no larger than 3 mm, facilitating suturing and fixation of the eyelid furrow. This technique is indicated for people with little fat or negligible excess skin.
A 1 cm incision is made in the direction of the new palpebral crease. It is then closed using three stitches to introduce a thread between the oculi and the tarsus.
No incision technique
Performed percutaneously, this technique does not require incisions. As it's ideal for persons without excess fat or skin. Afterwards, no scarring is generated, as the threads are introduced through the skin orifices.
Post-operative period for eye fold surgery
The patient is discharged on the same blepharoplasty day, without needing any special care. Around the third day, sutures are removed. Swelling and bruising may be noticeable after surgery, but these fade after a short time. The patient can return to work after a week, although well-planned consultations are required throughout the year. These serve to monitor the patient's convalescence and the condition of any scars.
However, it is important to avoid smoking for the first few days after the operation, to ensure optimal healing.
You can follow some recommendations to avoid future complications, such as :
- Taking ointments already prescribed by your doctor
- Applying cold compresses to the operated eyes
- Taking the antibiotics prescribed by your surgeon after the operation
Contraindications of Asian blepharoplasty

- Diabetic retinopathy
- Coagulation disorders
- Thyroid-related diseases
