Tóm tắt

With nearly half of the Asian population having no obvious double eyelid, cosmetic surgery to create double eyelids or create upper eyelid fold is the most common cosmetic procedure requested in Asia, including Vietnam.

We also review the development of upper eyelid surgery throughout history in Asia and analyze the technical and risks of each eyelid surgical technique.
