Asian Eyelid Surgery in Tacoma
Patients elect to have cosmetic surgery for many different reasons. One of the most common is the desire to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Many patients have heard of a procedure known as a facelift, but very few have heard of blepharoplasty. Also known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is a procedure performed on the eyes that significantly reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Most patients are great candidates for the procedure. Some patients require some extra care and attention while having the surgery. Because of this, the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery specializes in all types of eyelid surgery, including Asian eyelid surgery in Tacoma. Because of the difference in eye shape, an Asian patient requires a special level of care during surgery.
The surgery is typically performed by making small incisions around the eye area. After the incisions are made, excess fatty deposits and skin are removed from the site, considerably tightening the skin. Asian patients require one extra step, known as a double break, or an added eyelid crease. Patients with issues such as droopy upper or lower eyelids can also feel safe visiting our clinic, as we are well-versed in all types of blepharoplasty procedures.
