About Asian Eyelid Surgery
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is the most common elected procedure among people of Asian ethnicity in the United States and in Asia. Eyelid surgery performed by our double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Petroff, can thin a full eyelid, alter the shape or height of the upper or lower eyelids, decrease a pronounced epicanthal fold (the flap of tissue on the nasal side of the eyelid), or create a natural-looking crease. At Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa, we understand our patient's desires to naturally enhance their eyes without disregarding their ethnicity or heritage. Dr. Petroff will meet with each patient to discuss their goals and desired outcome for the surgery in order to produce the most subtle, ideal results. We invite everyone to contact our Lake Oswego, OR practice to learn more.
The best candidates for receiving an Asian eyelid surgery:
- Are of Asian descent
- Have a desire to improve and enhance the shape and appearance of their eyes
- Desire natural results that still maintain their heritage
- Desire a long-term solution
"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018

"Humble & Amazing Doctor - I can’t even begin to explain how lucky I feel to have found Dr. Petroff. I was searching years for a doctor that I felt confident in their work. After meeting him for the first time, I knew 100% I was comfortable having the surgery done by him. He has a very humble personality for being such an amazing doctor, and he makes you feel confident and comfortable through out the whole process."- K. / RealSelf / Jul 19, 2018
"I just had my nose done by Dr. Petroff about a month ago and I couldn't be more pleased. His work is flawless. I had a huge embarrassing nose. Everywhere I went I felt like everyone was staring at it. Dr. Petroff made it perfect, petite, upturned, just what I dreamed of. He gave me my confidence back. The procedure itself was a breeze. I had minimal bruising and swelling and was back at work in like 6 days. Everyone is obsessed with my results. My only regret is not doing this sooner. I'm so happy I chose Dr. Petroff!"- A.L. / Yelp / Jun 18, 2018
What to Expect
The procedure itself varies depending on the techniques used, as well as the patient’s goals and eyelid anatomy. An incisional approach is usually taken for double eyelid surgery, in which the skin and sometimes muscle are trimmed and some fat may be removed. In some cases, particularly for lower eyelid surgery, a transconjunctival (minimally invasive) approach is possible. Dr. Petroff will discuss with each patient before their procedure to thoroughly understand their goals and unique eye structure.
Minimal side effects such as itching, drying, bruising, swelling, and a sense of tightness in the eyelids are commonly observed following eyelid surgery. These symptoms are pretty normal and should subside within 1 - 2 weeks. Most patients resume routine activities in a matter of 5 - 7 days when non-absorbable stitches are removed, and they can return to work in about 10 days after a blepharoplasty. Contact lenses should not be worn for 2 weeks. Eyes can be sensitive to light and wind and may be slightly irritated for a short while. Dr. Petroff will prescribe eye drops and cool compresses to ease any discomfort. After 1 - 2 months, patients should see their true results: a more refreshed and cheerful look around the eyes and improved self-confidence, with little to no visible scars.
