Before and After: Janice Dickinson Fixes Her 30-Year-Old Breast Implants - Episode 102

Mixed in with the entertaining exploits of Janice Dickinson, is a patient who is unhappy with the results of her upper eyelid blepharoplasty, also called a double eyelid surgery…..

We meet Cheryl, an Asian American woman who is unhappy with her previous surgeries that were supposed to make her look more Caucasian.However, she feels that her appearance hasn’t changed enough. She recalls first coming to America and how she “was intrigued by the fact that, uh, everyone seemed so… rich!” She shouts, “I freaking just want my eyes back!”

The goal of Asian blepharoplasty used to be to make the eyelids appear more western or caucasian. That is no longer the case. Now the goal is to create a natural asian eyelid crease or double eyelid. In order to achieve this, the surgeon must understand and have experience with the unique and complex anatomy of the Asian eyelid.
Upper Blepharoplasty for Asian patients, often called Asian Blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery is a procedure that is becoming more and more common.

Dr. Joseph: “I agree 100%. Over treating the forehead causes a frozen and/or heavy look. My patients come in to look rested, refreshed, and brighter. Over treating the forehead does the opposite, but I still see it far too often walking around Newport Beach, or really all of Orange County. This is where having the light hand of a specialized micro-surgeon can really pay off”
Surgeons from different specialties may offer double eyelid surgery to their patients. As an oculofacial plastic surgeon specializing in eyelid surgery, Dr. Joseph focuses his practice on this area and this type of surgery. This enables Dr. Joseph to tailor your Asian eyelid surgery to your specific needs and goals.
