What Chararcterizes An Attractive Eyelid?
While all so-called "standards" of physical beauty are culturally variable and dependent upon the eye of the beholder, most experienced eyelid surgeons agree that the qualities that follow are generally appreciated across many diverse cultures and not solely a matter of Western bias.
An upper eyelid is typically considered more attractive by most people if it lacks excessive skin, possesses a noticeable crease (which makes the eye appear bigger -- a universal signal of youth and attention), and is neither hollowed from fat shortage nor bulging from too much.
A well-contoured lower eyelid free of bulging fat projects an image of youth, energy, and rest.
An attractive brow sits at or very slightly above the upper rim of bone and is gently arched along its lateral third.
