01. What is Epicanthoplasty?

To make bigger eye, the length of eye is important, but at the same time width or eye is also important. To expand the width of eye, the epicanthoplasty and lateral canthoplasty will be done.

Epicanthoplasty, normally called ‘epicanthus removal’, will make your middle of the forehead closer, and your eye will be more clear. If you have severe epicanthus, and if you do only double eyelid surgery, your eyes will be look very round. It seems not natural, and frontal area of double eyelid is not clear, this is a reason of stuffy looking. To prevent it, do epicanthoplasty with double eyelid surgery. It will make your eyes naturally bigger.
