Asian Eyes - The Double Eyelid Surgery
The most popular cosmetic
procedure Dr. Kass performs on Asian patients is the
Asian Double Eyelid Surgery (Asian Blepharoplasty).
Most Asians have a “single eyelid” resulting in a
relatively narrow eye aperture. The Asian Blepharoplasty
creates a “double upper eyelid” with a well defined lid
crease, and opens up the aperture of the eye, creating a
look of alertness and beauty.
Dr. Kass also understands the particular wants and
special needs of his Asian patients, such as the
importance of creating a natural appearing eyelid which
is just the right size, not too wide and not too narrow.
For the lower lids, Dr. Kass achieves a pleasing
reduction in the noticeable bulging of orbital fat and
in the dark under eye circles which may be cosmetically

of eyelid creases. Here is the same young woman after
Dr. Kass performed his innovative and painless Double
Eyelid Surgery as an office procedure. Now she no longer
wears tape on her eyelids. Note the pleasing, natural,
and symmetrical eyelid creases.
When comparing Asian eyelids with Caucasian creases it
is clear that many people of Asian descent (whether they
are Indian, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese or Japanese)
have little or no creases above the eyes. The intention
of this operation is to create such a crease. Whereas
Caucasian eyelid surgery is generally done on people in
their thirties and the forties, Asian Blepharoplasty may
be performed in younger age groups, even in teens who
want to look more Western.
Why choose Dr. Kass?
If you are thinking of having the Double Eyelid Surgery
or Asian Blepharoplasty, it is absolutely essential for
you to do your homework if you want to obtain a
beautiful result. Make sure that you search for a
surgeon who is familiar with the Asian face and has done
this procedure many times before. This is critical as an
Asian Blepharoplasty is not like normal Eyelid surgery.
The normal eyelid surgery is subtractive as only the
excess skin and fat is removed whereas in the case of
the Asian Blepharoplasty the surgical procedure is
additive in order to create a new crease where none
presently exists. Superior results can only be achieved
if the surgeon is intimately familiar with the anatomic
differences between the Caucasian and the Asian eyelids.
For this procedure, there is no higher level of
physician specialization than the American Society of
Oculo-Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS).
As a member of this select group, Dr. Kass has
per-formed thousands of eyelid cases in his illustrious
career. Dr. Kass understands the uniqueness of the
anatomy of the Asian eyelids, as well as the goals of
the Asian patient desiring blepharoplasty. Thus, he is
very aware of the significant anatomic difference
between performing blepharoplasty in Asian patients
versus ble-pharoplasty in Caucasians.
After almost 27 years in clinical practice in the same
office location, Dr. Kass has perfected his innovative
and sophisticated approach to the double eyelid surgery.
In his skilled hands, you can be assured that you will
