What is Epicanthoplasty
Epicanthoplasty is a procedure used to increase the width of the eyes giving the appearance of bigger and more attractive eyes. The inner edge of the eyelids, also known as the Mongolian fold, is a prominent feature for Asians. As the Mongolian fold extends across the eyes, it often covers the medial Canthus and can make the eyes look smaller and awkward looking.
In the case of a prominent fold at the inner edge of the eyelids (Mongoloid fold), Dr Samuel uses a modified Uchida technique to perform corrective surgery.
This technique eliminates the Mongolian folds neatly without the need for prominent scars. The results are larger, more attractive and natural-looking eyes.
The outer aspect of the eye may be “droopy”, rounded or narrow. In order to correct this, a simple Y-V incision on the inner aspect of the eyelid is performed and the corner of the eye attached firmly to underlying periosteum. This allows for a wider, more attractive eye with an improved slant.
