Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is one of the plastic surgery procedures sought by many people. But nothing seems to be more popular than double eyelid surgery in South Korea. The wondrous effect of this blepharoplasty method has spread throughout Koreans and everyone of Asian descent in foreign countries, especially in the United States.

Dr. Wallach often performs double eyelid surgery in Manhattan to create an upper eyelid crease that does not naturally exist. Here’s why people opt to have this cosmetic procedure.


The Quest for Bigger, Rounder, Brighter Eyes

Double eyelid surgery is specifically done by cutting portions of the eyelids, particularly the outer end, to make the eye appear wider and rounder. A lot of Asians who naturally do not have a “Caucasian crease” seek the help of Dr. Wallach. Apparently, creating an additional eyelid crease can create more attractive, brighter-looking eyes. Patients who have double eyelid surgery come out of Dr. Wallach’s office more confident and ready to see the world from a new perspective…literally.

Recovery from Asian blepharoplasty 

A double eyelid surgery involves a wider scope than traditional eyelid surgery. Hence, it is understandable that this type of blepharoplasty requires a longer recovery. Since Dr. Wallach will have to cut deeper to redo the crease during a double blepharoplasty, there is increased risk for bruising and swelling. Healing time after the procedure could take as long as six weeks. One thing that every patient must expect is the possibility of complications, such as eyebrow sagging, asymmetry, droopy eyelids, prolonged swelling, and scarring. Your surgeon will provide you with all the necessary instructions to get you by during this time.
