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

"I had a procedure done here two weeks ago and am extremely satisfied with my results. From the beginning starting with the consultation, during the recovery, and now, Dr. Petroff and his staff could not provide a more professional service. I am extremely happy about the results, they are even better than what I expected. Dr. Petroff was extremely gentle, understanding, and kind throughout the process. Him and his staff were with me the entire process and I did not feel uncomfortable at any time. The office is extremely professional, I will be highly encouraging and referring any of my friends here for the operations that he offers. 100/10 recommend. Thank you, Dr. Petroff!! ❤️❤️❤️"- D.S. / Google / Sep 03, 2020

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.
