A survey about Double Eyelid Surgery was dispersed to Brown University students and alumni, as well as students at UC Berkeley. Out of 169 respondents, 120 identified themselves as being Asian/Asian American or partly Asian (this includes responses such as “Chinese American”, “Korean”, and “Mixed Asian-Caucasian”). In addition to demographic information about gender and ethnicity/race, the following questions were asked:
- Have you heard of Double Eyelid Surgery?
- Can you tell the difference between “double” eyelids and “single” eyelids (eyelids with epicanthal folds)?
- How many people do you know who have had double eyelid surgery?
- If you know someone who has gotten the surgery, where did his/her operation take place?
- Why do you think people choose to have this surgery?
- Would you consider having this surgery?
- Have you had double eyelid surgery? (This questions was asked to 69 of the 169 surveyed)
