Blepharoplasty / eyelift for a person in there 20’s

This is a question that I answered for a person who was thinking of an upper blepharoplasty / eyelift to decrease the puffiness in their upper eyes.  This is how I answered her questions:

This puffiness that you see is really actually what makes you look younger.  I think what you are looking for is a more sculpted look where you have less fat in your eyelids.  This can be done for you but I think you should really think about it before doing so.  You might need to also increase the height of your double eyelid crease so that more of your pretarsal show is present with your eyes open.  I have a blog that discusses pretarsal show with some diagrams if you are interested in reading that.  I don’t really think you have extra skin, I think you have normal puffiness that a young person has.  You can always discuss this in more detail with me during a phone consult if you are interested.  Asians typically have more periorbital eye fullness and fat.  This can give them a more puffy appearance but this is part of their ethnicity.  What you might be interested with what you are asking is more westernization of your eyelid which can be done.

I hope that helps.
