Asian double eyelid surgery is a popular procedure that gives a more open appearance to the eyelids while maintaining the natural attractiveness and ethnicity of the eyes.
To do so, Dr. Kotlus creates, defines, and, in some cases, consolidates the upper lid crease so that the patient’s single eyelid (known as a monolid) becomes a double eyelid.
For some patients, the eyes will appear rounder after double eyelid surgery instead of having an almond shape because of the way the new lid influences the overall eye shape. Rounder eyes may give a brighter and more youthful appearance to some patients.
People looking for Asian double eyelid surgery in NYC come to Dr. Kotlus because of his extensive experience with the procedure and his detailed understanding of Asian eyelid anatomy. This knowledge allows him to carefully control the shape and position of the crease, the upper eyelid fat, and the medial eyelid fold (also known as the epicanthal eyelid fold).
The eyelid crease dictates the shape of the eyelid shelf (or eyelid platform), so it is extremely important to have a surgeon who can position and enhance it with great care.
Some patients want to have a natural-looking eyelid crease created during their surgery, while others choose Asian blepharoplasty because they hope to improve their facial symmetry or to have multiple eyelid creases merged into a single crease. In some cases, Dr. Kotlus may also sculpt the patient’s upper eyelid fat pads or remove excess skin during the procedure in order to enhance the shape of the patient’s eyelid.
