Blepharoplasty for Double Eyelids in Milwaukee
Why Asian Patients Seek Upper Eyelid Surgery
Single eyelids (monolids) are very common among people of Asian descent. Upper eyelid surgery to make a single eyelid into a double eyelid is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures amongst Asian patients. Known as “Asian blepharoplasty”, this procedure is available from Dr. Bruce Massaro in Milwaukee.
The appearance of a double eyelid is caused by the supratarsal crease. This feature is absent in those with a single eyelid. The supratarsal crease is covered by this single eyelid, a result of excess skin. The result is patients who usually look tired or upset even when they are not. Eyelid rejuvenation surgery can reveal the supratarsal crease by removing the excess eyelid skin. Get a more alert appearance and receive a consultation for blepharoplasty in Milwaukee.
Eyelid surgery is not just a cosmetic procedure. There are several medical reasons to pursue Asian blepharoplasty. Patients with ptosis may have problems seeing because of how low their eyelids hang. Ptosis is a condition in which the upper eyelid does not open all the way and instead remains over the eye. This can obscure vision.
Monolids can cause eyelashes to turn inward and cause eye irritation. And the extra weight from the eyelid can cause headaches and eyestrain. Blepharoplasty removes the extra weight and makes it easier to open the eyes fully.
Asian Blepharoplasty for Men and Women
This procedure is popular with men and women. For women, having the extra skin can make it difficult to apply makeup around the eyes. Long eyelashes can scratch the surface of the eye if pushed down by the eyelid.
Men tend to have thicker skin on the face and eyes than women. For Asian men, this means the chances of ptosis and other eyelid issues are higher. Dr. Massaro has performed blepharoplasty on many male patients and knows how to address the differences between male and female eyes.
Maintain Your Natural Appearance
Some patients fear the surgery will make them look like they are no longer Asian. The results of blepharoplasty are very natural and subtle. You will still look like yourself after surgery, just better!
Blepharoplasty is a minimally invasive surgery. Upper eyelid surgery can be paired with lower eyelid surgery to reduce the appearance of under eye bags. Set up a consultation to learn what Dr. Massaro and blepharoplasty can do for you.
