epicanthoplasty

WHAT IS EPICANTHOPLASTY?

Epicanthoplasty can elongate the eye horizontally to make it look more open and big. It releases and corrects an epicanthal or Mongolian fold, which is located either on the inner or outer corner of the eye. It is often recommended along with double eyelid surgery for a maximized surgery result.

TYPES OF EPICANTHOPLASTY

What is it?

This surgery reshapes the inner corner of the eye to make the eye appear bigger and brighter. It is recommended to people who have the medial epicanthus (Mongolian fold).

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