Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Asian blepharoplasty, also known as "double eyelid surgery," is a type of cosmetic surgery where the skin around the eye is reshaped (blepharoplasty). The purpose of the procedure is to create an upper eyelid with a crease (i.e. "double eyelid") from an eyelid that is naturally without a crease, known as an Epicanthic fold (a.k.a. "single eyelid"). Anatomically, there are a number of subtle differences in the upper eyelids of most Asians particularly from east, north and central Asia, including many Native Americans, compared with the differences in the eyelids of other races.[2] The procedure to alter the natural Asian "single eyelid" appearance has been a subject of controversy, and described by opponents of the procedure, such as author David Mura, as being "indoctrinated by white standards of beauty."show more
