epicanthoplasty

WHAT IS EPICANTHOPLASTY?

Epicanthoplasty can elongate the eyes horizontally to make them look big and wide. It releases and corrects an epicanthal or Mongolian fold, which is located either on the inner or outer corner of the eyes. This procedure is often recommended in conjunction with double eyelid surgery for optimal results.

TYPES OF EPICANTHOPLASTY

Medial Epicanthoplasty

What is it?

This surgery reshapes the inner corners of the eyes to make the eyes appear bigger and brighter. It is recommended for people who have the medial epicanthus (Mongolian fold). This surgery can 쐒edrape the skin into a desirable shape or slant by cutting or removing it, and sutures are hidden along the new corners of the eyes. It can be performed alone or together with double eyelid surgery.

It can be performed alone or together with double eyelid surgery.

  2. 2. People with upward sloped outer eye corners
