If you are looking for a skilled Asian eyelid plastic surgeon near the Bethesda area, turn to Dr. Maia at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD. The upper eyelids have an enormous impact on the appearance of the eyes and face. In about half of the Asian population, the upper eyelid does not have a crease, creating a single eyelid versus a double eyelid. Ptosis and shape issues also impact the appearance of the eyes. At Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD, near Bethesda, MD, we offer Asian eyelid surgery that can transform the upper eyelid into the desired shape.

Single eyelids are a common trait, but some individuals with this feature are unhappy with the appearance of their upper eyelid. Without the crease or double eyelid, the eyes may appear narrower or smaller. A double eyelid surgery, or Asian blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), can create the desired crease to widen and enlarge the eye appearance. With a double upper eyelid, there are more options for makeup application and style choices. This procedure can be completed with no-incision sutures for some patients or an incision for those that are not good candidates for the suture-only procedure.

Asian Eyelid Lift or Blepharoplasty

Another concern with some Asian eyelids is a prevalence of ptosis or droopy upper eyelids. Asian blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) can address a droopy upper eyelid, removing excess skin folds that can create narrow eyes and impact vision. In some cases, the muscle in the upper eyelid may need adjustment to create a more “open” appearance for ptosis, or droopy eyes.

Genetics are the key factor in determining the shape of the eyes for those of Asian descent. However, there are plastic surgery options to reshape the upper eyelid for a double eyelid or a lifted appearance. If you want to explore Asian eyelid surgery options, contact our experienced team at Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD. We can schedule a private eyelid lift or reshaping consultation with Dr. Munique Maia at our clinic near the Bethesda, MD, area.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
