The shape of East Asian eyes is one of the most unique human beauties. It is well documented in master art pieces throughout history. It is important to understand that the patient does not wish to alter their ethnicity but rather enhance it.

It also requires the highest level of cultural sensitivity.
The surgery involves designing the right shape of the eyes, the appropriate height for the fold, and correction of any associated ptosis.
