Canthoplasty Surgery

Canthoplasty is a reconstructive surgical procedure which is used to correct drooping or sagging eyes, by tightening the muscles or ligaments that give support to the outer corners of the eyelid. Canthoplasty essentially alters the shape of the eyes.

We have a number of different canthoplasty surgeries available at the clinic and will discuss these in depth with you at your initial consultation appointment. Fundamentally, there are several approaches:

Customized Results

We modify the shape and structure of the eyes, unique to every patient.

No Scars

Our experienced and skilled medical team perform the surgery with delicate precision in order to achieve scar-free results.

Younger Looking, Beautiful Eyes

We beautifully shape your eyes, be it horizontal enlargement or making eyes generally bigger & brighter.

Medically Advanced Technique

FacePlus surgeons are trained to the highest standards in order to deliver clinical excellence.

Medial Epicanthoplasty

What is Medial Epicanthoplasty?

The surgery involves tissue rearrangement within the lower eyelid and inner eye to make them appear bigger and brighter. It aims to lengthen the inner parts of the eye to make the eye bigger. Also called the “inner corner fold removal”.

Epicanthal fold surgery is a skilled cosmetic procedure and should only be performed by experienced professionals. The technique also allows reshaping of the canthal area depending on the specified needs of the individual patient, thereby correcting any asymmetry.

Medial Epicanthoplasty can benefit people:

1. With severe Mongolian folds

2. Who want bigger eyes

3. With a wide gap between the eyes

4. With downward sloping inner eye corners​

Duration:
30 minutes

Incision: Inner corner 
of the eyes

Hospitalization: None

Stitch removal:  7 days

Recovery period: 1 week

Anesthesia: Local, assisted with sedation

2. Cut/ remove mongolian
fold & redrape skin

3. Sutures are hidden along
the corner of the eye

Lateral Canthoplasty

What is Lateral Canthoplasty?

Whereas Epicanthoplasty aims to enlarge the eyes horizontally and is performed at the inner corner of the eye, Lateral Canthoplasty enlarges the outer edge of the eye and, in particular, the slant of the palpebral fissure. Both the shape and angle of the eye can be corrected through this surgery, and when combined with other procedures such as double eyelidplasty, epicanthoplasty, fat graft, and facial bone contouring surgery can totally transform the look of the patient.

Lateral Canthoplasty can benefit people:

1. Who want bigger eyes

2. With upward sloping outer eye corners

3. Whose eyes are too close for medial epicanthoplasty

4. Whose eye shape makes them appear fierce/have a severe facial image

Duration:  30 Minutes

Incision: 
Outer corner of the eyes

Hospitalization: None

Stitch removal: 7 days

Recovery period: 7 days

Anesthesia: Local, assisted with sedation

2. Reshape lateral epicanthus

3. Achieve 3 -5 mm elongated

Lateral Canthoplasty + Eye Corner Lowering Surgery

Eyelid surgery is most effective when combined and these two techniques will not only reshape the outer corners of the eyes, but also change their angle at the same time. It is recommended for people who have significantly slanted eyes and, as a result, can portray a stern facial profile. As the outer corners will be extended both horizontally and vertically, the resultant look creates gentle, soft-looking eyes.

Lateral Canthoplasty + Eye Corner Lowering Surgery can benefit those:

  1. Who wish to have bigger eyes
  2. With upward sloping outer eye corners
  3. Whose eyes are too close for medial epicanthoplasty
  4. Whose eye shape makes them appear fierce/have a severe facial image

Duration: 45 minutes

Incision: 
Outer Corner of the eyes

Hospitalization: None

Stitch removal: 7 days

Recovery period: 7 day

Anesthesia: Local, assisted with sedation

2. Lower the eye corner

3. Achieve 3 -5 mm elongated & downward-slanted eye corner
