Asian blepharoplasty, also known as double-eyelid surgery, is popular among women of Asian descent who are born without a distinctive upper eyelid fold. About 50 percent of women of Asian descent are born with this fold, and some feel that lacking an upper eyelid crease makes their eyes look smaller. To transform monolids, Pasadena, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Husam Elias can create an upper eyelid fold and the appearance of double eyelids through surgery or a stitch-based method.

During your consultation, Dr. Elias will ask the patient about their specific goals for the Asian blepharoplasty and examine the upper eyelid area with the eyes open and closed. Dr. Elias will then give his assessment to the patient on treatment options and discuss the surgical plan.

There are two different methods for performing the Asian blepharoplasty procedure, both of which are usually performed under local anesthesia in about an hour. In the first of these methods, the surgical method, Dr. Elias will make a small incision at the eyelid crease, remove a small degree of fat depending on the degree of heaviness of the upper eyelids, and then use stitches to create the fold by creating a connection between the muscle and the overlying skin. The other method is the suture method (stitch-based method). Using stitches, Dr. Elias creates the attachment from the muscle to the skin by passing stitches through the skin without the need for surgery. This method is less invasive and offers a quicker recovery but has a small chance of the fold fading over time.

After the surgery, patients should use a cold compress for the first 48 hours in 20-minute intervals on the eyes to help minimize swelling. Patients must keep their heads elevated and dry during the recovery period. Around two weeks after surgery, bruising and swelling have subsided in most patients enough for makeup to cover any remaining bruising. Dr. Elias will usually remove stitches during the first follow-up appointment. Patients usually stop taking pain medication after 5 – 7 days and plan their work schedules accordingly. It takes about 4 – 6 weeks to gradually return to full exercise. Follow-up appointments are scheduled for 1 – 2 weeks after the procedure and then several months after at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery.

I was recommend by a friend who got her breast and BBL done by Dr. Elias and I’m so glad I found him! Dr. Elias did such an amazing job with my lip fillers giving me natural results I wanted. I was debating getting them done for over a year because it was hard to find a trusting doctor and a great price. From the moment I walked through the door the staff was very kind and did not feel pressure at all to make any decisions. They took their time explaining to me my different options and made sure all my questions were answered. But not only is he the best cosmetic surgeon, he’s an oral surgeon as well which is perfect because my wisdom teeth need to be removed! We all want the natural results and if your looking for a Doctor who can do that for you, look no further Dr. Elias is the one!

My first procedure was Facetite with Dr. Elias. I was able to do the procedure awake on a Friday & was back to work on Monday! I was still swollen but not in pain at all. It’s a minimum invasive procedure to tighten the skin & gets rid of the fat. The staff was really friendly and was able to answer all my questions. I’ve been back many more times for Botox & fillers. Dr. Elias is such a perfectionist and that is exactly what I’m looking for in a Cosmetic Surgeon!
