Asian Hooded Eyelids, should I do a browlift / Asian double eyelid surgery / or fillers / injections?

You may need a brow lift, volumizing or an Asian Double Eyelid Blepharoplasty (Dr Young, Bellevue Office). This would all depend on how you looked in person or in a photograph.   Your eyebrows should form an arch that is higher at the arch than either the lateral or medial end of the eyebrow.  Also the lateral eyebrow should be slightly higher than the medial eyebrow.  Also the distance from eyelashes to the bottom of your eyebrow should be one iris width until you reach the arch where the distance from the lashes to the eyebrow should be around 1 1/2 iris widths.  Also the highlight created by the arch should line up with the iris and nasal tip.  If your eyebrow is below this you could benefit from a brow lift or volumizing.  A browlift would be good if you never had this ideal before and you want to change your anatomy.  Volumizing would be good if you had this ideal before and want to restore it.  Volumizing is also good if you want to improve the loss of tissue around your eyes as well.  This loss of tissue often is the biggest culprit that causes aging around the eyes.  Volumizing can be done temporarily with fillers or more permanently with fat injections and the YoungVitalizer.  Asian double eyelid blepharoplasty is usefull if you would like to define the eyelid crease and to remove some extra skin.  One thing to realize is that removing extra skin can lead to thicker eyebrow skin being opposed to the thinner eyelid skin and this can look unnatural in the asian eyelid due to the thickenss of their skin.  Here is video on Asian Blepharoplasty and Medial epicanthoplasty.
