ASK DR. YAGODA
Question: Can a blepharoplasty change my eye shape? I’m Asian American, 33, living in New York City, and one of my eyes is rounder than the other, which makes me look asymmetrical.
Answer: Blepharoplasty can change the shape of the eye, if that is the goal, but routine eyelift surgery does not change its shape. In some cases, Asian eyes can look rounder, or more Western, with incisionless double lid surgery as well.
