When describing Asian-styled eyelids, double eyelids refer to a fold on the upper lid just above the eyelashes with an eyelid platform that is open. The eyelids differ widely, and not one eyelid has a double folded eyelid. This fold occurs because of the crease running along the edge. This is a fold that was defined by the attachment between eyelid skin and tendon. The double fold gives definition to the upper eyelid and is generally desired by both men and women. Women can apply makeup and use this platform to cover their eyes, continue reading.
Does double Asian eyelid surgery westernize my eyes?
It is not the intention of double-eyelid procedures to Westernize eyes. This is incorrect. Asians either have a single eyelid, or none. Those who lack double eyelids might wish to have them. But they fear that it will “westernize” them. The description of the surgery is inaccurate. This description is sometimes used in articles that are written by individuals who may not understand why the surgery was performed. To give eyelids an appearance that is more natural, the double-fold surgery adds a defined top fold. The lower crease is created. Only a small amount of skin is removed. However, the remaining natural look of the eyes remains. Some surgeons make the crease intolerably deep or remove far too much of the skin. This type of poorly designed surgery may damage your appearance. It is important to only consult an eyelid expert who knows the process well and can master it. The natural shape of the eyelids is preserved while the definition is enhanced according to how you want your eyes to look.
Make a double fold
There are two different ways to make a double fold. Asians make double folds using temporary stitches. As threads always fall apart, they are not the permanent solution. In double eyelid surgery, some tissue is removed from the upper eyelid platform in order to form a defined crease. It is essential to retain the Asian appearance of the upper lip while adding a defined eyelid crease.
Most of these surgeries can be done with local anesthesia. It takes about 10 days to recover. It includes all visible swelling as well as bruising. Most of the stitches should fall out within a week. To make the stitch permanent, it is recommended that three small stitches be left in place at the crease for about 3 weeks. Most people do not know they have had surgery for about ten days.
