Our eyes and eyelids play a great role in determining our appearance. Asian’s have a unique facial shape and almost 50% Asian people are born with upper eyelids that have no crease. Besides this, the various signs of aging also affect the eyes adversely. With growing age, the muscles around the eyes weaken and as a result, the skin around the eyelid stretches.
The accumulation of fat around the eyes, which is called eye bags, makes you look tired, fatigued, old and angry. The medical procedure which is designed to eliminate this excess fat around the eyelids and create natural crease in the eyelid is known as Asian Eyelid Surgery or Asian Blepharoplasty.
