Also known as Asian Double Fold Surgery or double eyelid surgery in Asia, this type of Asian surgery creates a clear break between the upper and lower eyelids. By improving the contour of the upper eyelid and complementing natural facial features, the purpose of this type of surgery is to enhance definition in the eyes.

The great variety in eyelids means that not every one has the double fold. It can be thought of as the crease above the eyelid. Men and women both prefer this crease because it gives definition to their eyelids. The crease also helps you apply makeup and can be used to alter your daily look or enhance your eye appearance.
Asian eyes are both commonly double-folded and without. An experienced surgeon can use a low crease to produce a clearly defined upper eyelidfold. A skilled surgeon will create the crease by removing some skin on the upper eyelid and then tensioning skin and muscle. Apart from the new upper eyelid flap, most of the appearance of your eyelid is unchanged.
To achieve an appearance that looks natural, it is important to place the fold in the right spot. Placement of folds on the eyelids should be done symmetrically. The natural look must also be retained as much as possible. Non-specialists may have disappointing results if they follow the instructions in some books to make this fold higher. Sometimes, surgeons may not be experienced or may not possess the necessary expertise. A highly-experienced surgeon, who is well versed in the complexities of the double fold surgery and can personalize the treatment for each eye is the best choice to achieve the natural result. Your surgeon will use a conservative technique to compliment your eyelid definition instead of changing the general look of the eyes.
The best way to achieve the double eyelid fold is to consult with an expert oculoplastic surgery. Two methods are used to make this fold: one, the above-described surgery; and another is temporary stitching using sutures. Unfortunately, the threads will not last and they eventually break. If you want a look that is more refined, and has a longer-lasting improvement, double-folding surgery may be the way to go. This procedure should retain the Asian eyelid features that vary among individuals. As unique as your eyes are, a successful procedure must be customized to you.
