◆ What is Epicanthoplasty - Medial and Lateral
1. Medial Epicanthoplasty
The procedure removes Mongolian folds that obstruct the inner corner of the eyes.
Epicanthoplasty reveals more eyes and part of lachrymal glands by cutting off Mongolian folds (epicanthic folds) that overly cover the inner corner of the eye, creating larger and clearer-cut eyes.
2. Lateral Epicanthoplasty
If the width of eyes are short compared to the height, the eyes look centered in the middle of the face, and this can't be corrected with only double eyelid surgery. If both eyes are pushed into the inner corner of the eyes, lateral canthoplasty enlarges the outer corner of the eyes to increase the overall size of the eyes.
The overly covered outer angle of the eye is extended through resection on the skin and
mucous membrane to make wider and deep-set eyes.
◆ Candidates for Epicanthoplasty
01. Those who have small eyes with short width
02. Those who have obstructed inner or outer corner of eyes
03. Those who had double eyelid surgery but whose eyes still looks undefined.
