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
"If I could give Dr. Petroff 10 stars I would. He is a fantastic and extremely talented plastic surgeon for the face. I received a revision rhinoplasty through Petroff. My driest rhinoplasty was with an entirely different surgeon almost two years ago. My previous surgeon was too conservative and did not provide the results I’d asked for. After consulting with several surgeons and researching, The Petroff center was by far the most impressive. If you are seeking a rhinoplasty or revision, look no further, because he will make your dreams come true. Not only is his technic with the nose fantastic, all of his patients have similar results showing his technique is consistent. Outside of Dr. Petroffs technical skills and attention to detail/your needs, his medical staff was fantastic. From the scheduling, pre op and post op care, I was thoroughly communicated with via email and phone calls. His team also offers a vitamin treatment to prep for your procedure making your body stronger for the healing process. The sedation process for the procedure was great and the nurses were holding my hands/arms for comfort since I was nervous. After coming out of surgery, I had a bouquet of roses with an adorable poem from the staff. I can’t believe I went somewhere else before Petroff, I wish I would have gone to him sooner. Regardless, I have no regrets and admire his talent, as well as his staffs talents."- J.B. / Yelp / May 19, 2022

"I had rhinoplasty with Dr Petroff in the summer of 2005. This many years on I can attest to the quality of his skill. Completely natural looking and absolutely improved my life."- T. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
"I can’t speak highly enough about Dr Petroff and his staff. I started visiting the center years ago for facials, chemical peels and laser treatments. I was always completely amazed and how amazing the staff was, and how much my skin improved. I had always hoped to one day fix my crooked nose. There was no doubt in my mind Dr Petroff would be the surgeon for me, after seeing his amazing work on my family and friends. I had a rhinoplasty done a little over a year and a half ago... and to this day I’m still in complete awe of his work. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect nose for my face. My nose was unique but Dr Petroff was able to transform it. I am forever thankful to Dr Petroff, and his amazing staff who has always made me feel comfortable and welcomed."- K.A. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2021
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.
