  1. Hey all -
    this is my first post here. i hope this is not inappropriate....but....

    Can anyone recommend a good plastic surgeon for Asian double eyelid surgery in NYC? I am currently trying to decide between Dr. Edward Kwak and Dr. George C Yang. Has anyone had either of those two???? PLEASE SHARE!

    And please no haters....I would prefer not to discuss my decisions, just looking for recommendations!
    Thanks!
     
  2. I also want to know if someone can recommend a surgeon. Please upload picture :smile:
     
  3. Hello, I'm an Asian male with existing tapered double eyelids, albeit with minimal double eyelid show. I want to raise the crease to increase eyelid show and make the crease parallel. However, I'm wary of epicanthoplasty as the change can be dramatic and have heard of people regretting the procedure (too much white/red show, looks too "fierce and aggressive", too western, etc). I've seen Asian eyelids where the parallel crease is on top of the epicanthic fold (read, without epicanthoplasty to remove the epicanthus) like how I've drawn in the attached pic of me. But how would I get this done and reconcile the tapered fold? Do they somehow stitch the inner eyelid with the epicanthic fold to make it "one inner piece"? And then would they join the newly created epicanthal incision with the outer eyelid? I hope I explained this coherently. If you look at my pic, I think you would understand. I've been wrapping my head around this for a while wondering how it would work in my case. Thanks in advance.


    This is how my eyes look like now. I pulled up slightly on my brow to simulate more eyelid show.

    I drew in lines to show how a parallel crease would look like without epicanthoplasty. This is what I meant by questioning how the doctor would reconcile the existing tapered fold (that goes underneath the epicanthal fold) with the new crease that would be formed on the epicanthal fold.

    This is a good example of someone with a parallel crease while still having the epicanthal fold (no epicanthoplasty to remove the epicanthal fold). Would this parallel crease be possible in my case?

    Another example of someone with a parallel crease w/o epicanthoplasty.

    He has a parallel crease now (obviously), but if you look closely, does this look like he originally had a tapered crease that was surgically altered to be parallel (notice the scarring)?

  4. have you considered just increasing the tapered crease? there is no need for a parallel crease other than a personal preference, but if you searched for pics of ppl with a tapered crease, they can look quite nice as well. it is also less conspicuous than a parallel crease and incorporates the epicanthal fold

  5. Hey, thanks for replying. Yes, I've considered the tapered. I've seen both types and personally, I think the parallel is more becoming. Also, I have a big gap between the eyes and the parallel will give a perception of wider eyes, in lieu of the epicanthoplasty.
     
  6. the links aren't working btw
    you gotta delete the ip address in front of them
     
  7. For some weird reason, I no longer have the ability to edit my own posts. Yea I know what you mean, the image tool is not working correctly, which is why I posted the direct links so you can click on them.
     
  8. Let's try this again. Hope it works this time. Reposted part of my original post again...

  10. Ok, this forum is hosing up the links for some reason. For the last 3 pics, just append "http://" to the beginning of the pic link to look at them.
