What is Asian Blepharoplasty?
Dr. Ho’s Approach to Asian Blepharoplasty
As an Asian female facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Ho specializes exclusively in aesthetic facial procedures including the double eyelid procedure and is experienced in treating patients of various ethnicities including those of Asian descent. She attracts patients who desire double eyelid surgery from all across Philadelphia and Newtown as well as greater Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. She devotes extensive time and effort with every patient to gauge their ideal eyelid preferences and determine an individualized surgical approach that best meets their expectations. Dr. Ho pursues a natural, conservative approach to Asian blepharoplasty and avoids removing excess skin or fat that may put a patient at risk of an overdramatic or hollowed-out eyelid appearance.
Dr. Ho typically performs this procedure in the surgery center setting with the patient under awake sedation. During surgery, Dr. Ho makes an incision in each upper eyelid and excises small strips of skin and deeper tissues to gain access to the appropriate plane for suturing. She asks the patient to open his or her eyes to confirm crease formation with her suture placement. Her surgical technique is tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy to produce smooth, natural upper eyelid creases. Dr. Ho performs meticulous closure of the eyelid incisions for minimal scarring. She strives for a rejuvenated, unoperated look for every Asian blepharoplasty patient.
What Should Patients Expect After Asian Blepharoplasty?
Each double eyelid surgery is unique and catered to the individual patient. Therefore, the types of incisions utilized as well as the extent of swelling, bruising, and tenderness that occur after surgery will vary by patient. The downtime following double eyelid surgery is usually minimal; most patients can return to normal daily activities apart from heavy lifting, straining, and strenuous activity the day after surgery.
Every Asian blepharoplasty patient will follow-up with Dr. Ho one week after surgery for suture removal. Each patient will then follow-up again at weeks to months out at regular intervals for re-evaluation.
“Words Cannot Describe the Amazing Dr. Tina Ho”
Initially, I had blepharoplasty (eyelid) surgery with Dr. Ho. She was great, talked me through the procedure, excellent post follow up. A week into my recovery, a dog bite to the eye – terrible! Because it was at night, I went to the ER and waited for hours. I was so upset! I called Dr. Ho and she came – 8 months pregnant – in the
middle of the night. She worked on my eye for hours to repair the torn eyelid. The bite was terrible, but Dr. Ho went above and beyond. Her post op follow up was weekly. My eyes look amazing. The eye that was injured is healed and thanks to Dr. Ho, you can’t even tell. Dr. Ho is a highly skilled surgeon, first and foremost. She is meticulous, provides honest feedback, and cares tremendously about her patients. I’m lucky to have her as my surgeon. I’m a raving fan for life!
