Abstract

In contrast with Caucasian blepharoplasty, which is usually done for rejuvenation purposes, eyelid surgery for Asians is mainly done for cosmetic reasons. Here the authors present preoperative evaluation methods of Asian eyelids to overcome anatomical variations and determine the right aesthetic options. Proper selection of the most suitable operative methods guarantees optimal surgical results.
