Does Asian Blepharoplasty and Double eyelid Surgery mean the same thing?

Asian Blepharoplasty and Double Eyelid Surgery is essentially the same thing.  Double eyelid surgery specifically means creating the crease in the upper eyelid.  Now this doesn’t have to be used only on Asians.  Caucasians can have this as well and can lose their double eyelid later on in life due to aging.  So this procedure of creating a double eyelid can be used for this group as well.  Most of the time when Asians want an eyelift they usually come in to discuss creating the double eyelid crease and in this instance when you are talking about an Asian Blepharoplasty, creating the double eyelid crease is usually a part of this procedure.  Sometimes though in older Asian patients who have a double eyelid already, Asian Blepharoplasty could just be a regular blepharoplasty that is applied to all races and could mean that a double eyelid crease creation may not be necessarily a part of the eyelift. Here is video on Asian Blepharoplasty and Medial epicanthoplasty.
