This is a specialized surgery done to add a crease to the upper eyelids in Asian patients but not to erase their ethnic features.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis unless combined with an other procedure. The limited incisions are made in the upper lid to remove excess fat and reposition the fold.
The bruising and swelling will last 7 to 10 days and most patients will return to social activities in 10 to 14 days. Eye make-up can be used within 5 days and contact lens can be worn in 3 days.
