Video explaining eye lift surgery or canthopexy (English subtitled audio)
A technique called cantopexy is usually performed on the outer rim of the eye socket.
Slanting the eye consists in releasing the external ligament of the eyes, and suturing it to the desired position. It can be a few millimeters more horizontal (almond eye) or a few millimeters more upper horizontal (slanted eye).
A small incision is made on the outer edge of both eyes or, occasionally, on the temples, through inside the scalp, depending on the desired shape. In both cases the scar is not visible because the skin of the eye heals very well and the one from the scalp is hidden by the hair.
In many cases it can be accompanied by a blepharoplasty, eyebrows elevation, etc., to finish harmonizing the eyes, according to the patient’s request and the surgeon’s good judgment.
