Asian Eyelid Surgery: Westernization of the Asian Eyelid?

Beauty has been shaped to a Eurocentric point of view when it comes to the Asian eyelid. To create that Asian eyelid crease, tape or glue has been used by many Asian women who desire that upper eyelid crease. There is indeed an obvious influence of the Western culture over several Asian countries, and the overtones of cultural rejection still exist when it comes to discussing Asian blepharoplasty. But do these women really desire to have a more Occidental look? In fact, in Asian women who were born without a crease who later desired to have double eyelid surgery, very few sought to look Western. Interestingly, the double eyelid surgery was first described in the Japanese medical literature in the 1800s long before the Westernization of Japan.
