Usually dramatic effects can be seen when canthoplasty and double eyelid surgeries are performed together. The width can be altered with 2~3 mm incisions for epicanthoplasty and 4~5 mm for lateral canthoplasty for a prominently larger appearance of the eyes.




Q: Will epicanthoplasty leave scars?

A: The inner corner of the eyes are sensitive to scars and therefore careful incisions and design is very important. It usually leaves white scar as the outer skin of the Mongolian fold is incised.



To overcome this, Wonjin Beauty Medical Group incises a little bit on the conjunctiva in the eyes and sutured towards the inner skin so that scars become unnoticable from the outer appearance.




Q: Will the eyes look too merged towards the center?

A: Wonjin Beauty Medical Group doesn’t only consider the width but also the balance of exposure of red flesh in the inner corner of eyes and the distance between the glabella when performing epicanthoplasty.

The slightest incision error of 1 mm can overly expose the red flesh or the eyes may look too close to each other. Therefore, epicanthoplasty is recommended only when it is absolutely required.




Q: Can slanted eyes be corrected?

A: The main purpose of canthoplasty is not only making bigger eyes but correcting the shape and angle to make desirable eyes.
