Many people who desire Asian eyelid surgery or double eyelid surgery wish to have eyelash eversion. Eversion means that the eyelashes are flipped upward so that the lashes will not insert into the eyes. Many Asian eyelids have eyelashes that invert. If this situation is severe, then the eyelashes will insert into the eyes and irritate the eyes. What that means is that the eyelashes can actually go into the eyes and cause much discomfort or shooting pain.
By having Asian eyelid surgery or double eyelid surgery, the eyelashes can be everted.
This eversion occurs because, during Asian eyelid surgery or double eyelid surgery, the skin of the eyelid becomes tighter. This tightness occurs because the eyelid skin is bound to the deeper layer of the eyelid. If this tightness is too great, then the eyelashes can evert too much and one can see the under eyelid margin of the upper eyelid.
This is why it is very important to receive Asian eyelid surgery and double eyelid surgery from a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands the unique needs of your case.
Dr. Kenneth Kim, a board-certified plastic surgeon, part of the Dream Medical Group from Korea in Los Angeles, California will evaluate your eyelashes at the consultation.
By determining how your eyelashes are before the Asian eyelid surgery and before the double eyelid surgery, Dr. Kenneth Kim can design your Asian eyelid and your double eyelid fold or crease to the optimal shape and eyelash eversion.
