Drsong4u Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Clinic, 2-3 Floors, Dosandaero 37gil 6, Gangnam-gu, Seoul 06026, Korea.

The goal of Asian blepharoplasty is to create a lid crease configuration that resembles the natural-appearing crease found in other Asians.

Hence, Asian blepharoplasty should be performed specifically following the orbital anatomy of Asians. Read More
