二重まぶたプチ整形の歴史。

In February 1895, an unnamed special correspondent for the Los Angeles Times wrote about this surgery in Japan.

"In their efforts to acquire recognition in the civilized world, the Japanese have found their greatest barrier in the unmistakable mark of their Mongolian origin," writes the unnamed author. "The prejudice against Mongolians is undeniable, and among the Japs, the slanted eye being its only evidence, the curse is being removed."

This illustration appeared in a February 1895 Los Angeles Times story about eyelid surgery in Japan.

An American doctor named Abraham Stone was living in Japan — the city of "Tokio," to be precise — and dragging his scalpel across the eyelids of Japanese people.
