Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the appearance of the eyelids. , as Like various other cosmetic surgeries, eyelid surgery can be performed differently for patients of different ethnicities, since there are certain aspects of the facial features that vary depending on one’s ethnic background.

The Epicanthic Fold

The epicanthic fold is the skin fold on the upper eyelid that is part of the typical Asian eye. Changing beauty standards motivate people to seek cosmetic improvements, and those with an epicanthic fold now have the option of receiving a procedure to remove it if desired.

Epicanthic-Fold Blepharoplasty

Epicanthic-fold blepharoplasty aims at removing the epicanthic fold and modifying the overall appearance of the upper eyelid by creating a crease, resulting in a double eyelid. It also addresses sagging eyelids and puffiness, which can make a person look constantly tired.

With epicanthic-fold blepharoplasty, the eyes appear more open and alert and the eyelids look more defined. It’s all about adding the contours that enhance the curves of the eyelids, make the crease evident, and make the lashes more prominent. The whole effect is created without modifying the natural shape of the eye or creating an artificial appearance.

Performing the Procedure

At the start of epicanthic-fold blepharoplasty, anesthesia is administered to the patient. The purpose of this is to make sure that the patient is comfortable throughout the procedure and that no pain is felt.

Once this step has been accomplished, a small incision is created in the eyelid. This incision makes it possible for Dr. Ceydeli to trim away excess drooping skin, remove drooping muscle tissue, and remove or repositions bulging fatty tissue as needed. These address sagging in the eyelids and puffy areas.

To address the epicanthic fold, skin is carefully connected to the eyelid cartilage and the muscle that opens the eyelid. In this way, the new crease is made and the contours of the eyelid have been enhanced. After the completion of the procedure, the incisions are closed using stitches.

Preparation and Post-Surgical Healing Period

There might be certain restrictions on the medications taken before and after the surgery, since certain medications can have negative interactions with anesthesia. Once the procedure is over, the patient will need to recover for a time. This can involve the use of cold compresses and recommended ointment to aid in the healing process.

After the healing period is complete, the swelling will have disappeared and the beautiful results of the procedure will be visible.
