iWELL Plastic Surgery’s
If the eyes are horizontally short, it is difficult to create longer or more prominent eyes with just double eyelid surgery. If your eyes are too short or upturned, you may opt for lateral or lower canthoplasty that is suitable for your own eye characteristics to gain more feminine-looking eyes. Note that patients who have received lateral/lower canthoplasty in combination with double eyelid surgery typically report a higher level of satisfaction.
Duration of Surgery
After 5 ~ 7 days
Union After Lateral Canthoplasty
In the past, there were many cases in which the incised area became re-attached during the recovery process after lateral canthoplasty. However, iWELL’s lateral canthoplasty is an upgraded version in which the tissues that become reattached are completely removed during surgery to prevent union of the skin.
Characteristics of iWELL’s Lateral Canthoplasty
|iWELL’s Lateral Canthoplasty||General Lateral Canthoplasty|
|Incision Site||Incision along the conjunctiva under the eyelid||Incision in the skin on the surface of the eyelid|
|Chance of Recurrence||• The tissues that cause union of the incision site are removed to reduce the chance of union • The skin and mucous membrane are sutured separately to minimize the chance of union||High chance of union|
Lower canthoplasty, otherwise known as “lowering the upturned eye,”
is a surgical procedure that lowers the lower eyelid close to the outer corner (one-third of the area from the outer corner).
This transforms the upturned eye into a more ideal eye shape and elongates the eyes, which in turn helps soften the person’s look.
The outer corner is pulled horizontally to elongate the eye horizontally.
The outer corner is pulled downward to enlarge the eye vertically.
Characteristics of iWELL’s Lower Canthoplasty
The upturned eye is
transformed into a more oval shape.
The outer corner of the
eye is enlarged without any scarring.
The fierce-looking eyes
are made more feminine with a softer look
