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.
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.
Asian patients who undergo double eyelid surgery with Dr. Edmund Kwan enjoy the following benefits:
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.
The cost of treatment varies and is dependent on the specific needs of the patient and the surgical approach needed to provide desired results. Dr. Edmund Kwan encourages patients to schedule an evaluation to get a quote for services.
