The Growing Cosmetic Trend Taking Over Asia

People receive blepharoplasty for a wide array of reasons; for some it is a necessity, but for others it’s purely cosmetic. In Japan, blepharoplasty also known as double eyelid surgery, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. It is sought after by people who have monolid but would prefer a more western style double lid. With this eyelid surgery the patient’s eyes will appear to look bigger. While many people in Asia have a natural double lid, blepharoplasty has still become a sought after procedure in Asian countries due to their fashion and media world popularizing the Western Asian look. Many monolid Japanese celebrities have undergone this eyelid surgery making it increasingly more popular.

It is important for people to understand eyelid surgery should only be done if there is a need for it, or if the patient believes it will improve their self-image. This type of blepharoplasty should not be taken lightly; if you are doing it for the wrong reasons, you may very well end up regretting your decision. It is also important for you note what this procedure entails; you will usually be awake for eyelid surgery and given medicine to relax, then numbing medicine. Since the eyelid surgery is invasive, you will receive stitches. It is an outpatient procedure and will take a few weeks to heal.

Patients should also note the risks of blepharoplasty. You could suffer from breathing difficulties, infections, and in the worst case scenario, loss of vision. These are extremely rare complications, but be on the safe side and go to the best plastic surgeons in Miami for this procedure. If you are unsure if this is the path for you to take, try less permanent options like eyelid glue or tape, they both give the desired effect of the surgery. When altering your appearance you should always try out non-invasive strategies first.
