Determining the Natural Placement of an Eyelid Crease in Asian Double Eyelid Surgery


Someone wants to know how much the eyelid falls six months, one year, and two years after Asian double eyelid surgery was done. They want to know if the crease will be significantly lower after all the swelling has subsided.

New York oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon Amiya Prasad, M.D. reviews their concerns in this video, and explains the different approaches to creating an Asian eyelid crease—depending on the amount of extra skin and fat present—as well as how to achieve natural-looking crease placement:

0:43 — Dr. Prasad details his background training in cosmetic surgery and his specialization in Asian eyelid surgery

1:12 — Understanding the anatomy relevant to an eyelid crease, and how Dr. Prasad determines the most natural placement for an eyelid crease

2:13 — Dr. Prasad discusses the two ways to create an eyelid crease in Asians, depending on the presence or absence of extra skin or extra fat in the eyelid

3:25 — How the healing process affects the outcome of the appearance of the eyelid crease; and how long post-operative swelling can last

4:21 — Dr. Prasad further discusses the specifics of achieving natural placement for the Asian eyelid crease

6:04 — Why focusing on the exact height of the eyelid crease is not necessarily helpful

7:10 — Dr. Prasad’s recommendation

Anatomic Factors that Determine a Natural-Looking Eyelid Crease after Double Eyelid Surgery


Someone asks how much time is needed between Asian eyelid surgery and a revision of the surgery. They say that the eyelid crease two weeks after surgery is smaller than they hoped, and there isn’t much swelling after surgery. They also know that size of the eyelid crease will decrease a little more since the surgery was very recent. They ask how soon they can have another surgery to increase the height, and about any potential complications if there is a second surgery over the initial incision.

New York Oculofacial plastic surgeon Amiya Prasad, MD reviews the question in this video, and reviews different scenarios of Asian double eyelid surgery:

1:37- Dr. Prasad’s experience in complex eyelid surgery and revision surgery, with samples of his work
2:00 – Samples of Dr. Prasad’s work with Asian eyelid surgery, which is also a practice-focus
2:16 – The importance of how an Asian eyelid surgery technique was chosen: incisional or non-incisional, the type of crease, and if an epicanthoplasty is desired
3:05 – Dr. Prasad’s general goal of Asian eyelid surgery is to create an eyelid crease that looks like it was naturally there to begin with, as only half of Asians have a natural eyelid crease
3:19 – Differing factors for Asians with a natural eyelid crease, from skin thickness, genetics, and fullness of the eyes and eyelids
3:39 – How Dr. Prasad simulates an eyelid crease before surgery
4:04 – How individual anatomy determines what kind of eyelid crease can be created through surgery
4:35 – The typical height range of Asian eyelid creases, and non-Asian eyelid creases
4:49 – How low an Asian eyelid crease can really be, and the likelihood the low crease is caused by swelling above the crease
5:12 – How the overlap of skin may be an issue over the height of the crease
5:28 – How the backbone of the eyelid called the tarsus is usually the same height as the eyelid crease, so surgeons are likely to put the crease at that height, but may also be conservative in removal of eyelid skin
6:00 – Why a certain amount of eyelid skin needs to be present for skin to overlap and look natural
6:20 – How incisional eyelid surgery can have temporary swelling above the crease that can make the skin overlap look more pronounced
6:33 – How Dr. Prasad does revisions after swelling has resolved, and surgical wound healing is at a more predictable stage, which is as early as 3 months, but more common around 6 months
7:22 – How Dr. Prasad measures Asian eyelid surgery results at about 6 months after surgery
7:47 – The possibility of additional skin being removed for more satisfactory results
7:57 – The possibility of having a non-incisional procedure done to improve results
8:31 – How the original doctor is familiar with differences in eyelid crease height, and can come up with a plan to improve results

3 Ways I Use the Darkness Eyelash Glue | Soleely

Hey Guys! ♡
Here is a quick review and demo of 3 ways to use the Darkness Eyelash Glue!
I never tried double eyelid glue before so when I found out the Darkness glue could be used for that I definitely needed to try it out. I recommend trying it on bare skin because the glue will clump to any makeup products. This is a great product for people who want experiment with double eyelids because if they don’t like it then you can use it as a lash glue. This and the black Darkness glue is my go to eyelash glue at the moment.

Do you think a higher double eyelid suits me more? If you have any requests of products you would like me to try, please leave them down below!
