Abstract

Asian eyelids have several characteristics that distinguish them from Caucasian eyelids. An understanding of the structural features common to all eyelids, regardless of racial background, allows for a greater comprehension of the underlying anatomic basis of distinctive characteristics and the surgical techniques essential for their maintenance. Failure to recognize and maintain inherent structures can lead to the loss of characteristic ethnic features and a cosmetically unacceptable result.
