Asian blepharoplasty is one of the most common operations performed today. With Richmond’s dynamic Asian population, Dr. Brown has over 40 years experience in performing these operations. In addition to the normal training in cosmetic surgery, he has spent several months in Tokyo and later Korea, refining cutting edge techniques.

Patients vary in their sense of aesthetics especially with lid fold height, as well as possible revision of the epicanthic folds. The selection of techniques also vary depending on the sex of the patient, as it is imperative that men do not had a feminized appearance. The techniques employ a lower, flatter fold for men, a natural gently curved fold for women, or a rainbow technique for a more striking appearance.

Upper lid surgery is performed at our office with an option of a little oral sedation. Lower lid surgery is performed at Cambie Surgery clinic either with intravenous sedation or a light general anesthetic if the patient wishes.

The first consultation will take about an hour, and it is necessary to have an English speaking guest if the patient does not speak English.
