New York doctor offers plastic surgery for Asian eyes

Manhattan, New York area patients who are Asian may have specific concerns regarding the appearance of their eyes. Visiting a plastic surgery office to discuss ways to treat these issues is the first step in learning more about cosmetic procedures aimed to help patients address the lack of a natural fold.

Asian eye surgery

Asian eye surgery

Approximately half of the Asian population is missing the natural fold that appears on people of other ethnicities. This fold is present above the lashes on the upper lid, and is referred to as a “double eyelid.” Double eyelid surgery is used to create a permanent eyelid crease that draws positive attention to the eyes and can greatly enhance the face. Dr. Edmund Kwan is a Board-certified plastic surgeon who can provide these upper eyelid creases for Asian patients who are self-conscious about their appearance.

What are the benefits of Asian eye surgery?

Asian patients who undergo double eyelid surgery with Dr. Edmund Kwan enjoy the following benefits:

  • Improved overall appearance
  • Natural-looking results
  • Permanency

What can patients expect post-procedure?

The post-operative experience often requires patients to take approximately one week off work for recovery time. Dr. Edmund Kwan will provide aftercare instructions to follow closely. This ensures the healing time is reduced, as well as the chances of infection.

What our patients say


After a year of extensive searching and interviews, I chose Dr. Kwan to perform my abdominoplasty. He very patiently answered all of my many questions before, during and after the procedure. In fact, since I have always had issues with scarring (I am a very dark-skinned African American), he took great care and all of the time we needed to make sure that scarring was minimal. Now that it is three years post surgery there is barely a trace and I love the results. Also, I can't say enough about his wonderful staff. These ladies take care of business and do it all with a smile. Given his education, experience and NY location I added him to my pool to interview but didn't really think I could afford him. Unlike his greedy and very commercial competitors, he is reasonably priced. I knew that I was in good hands when I chose him but had no idea the degree to which he would go to ensure that it was a positive experience for both of us.
