Korean Plastic Surgery: Lateral Canthoplasty

Lateral canthoplasty is a special cosmetic surgery for eyes with narrow width. This surgery is typically made after double eyelid surgery for sufficient results.

Lateral canthoplasty is necessary to people who do not see enough improvement after double eyelid surgery. It usually happens in people with short eyes. After double eyelid surgery, their eyes still remain small, and the short length of the eyes stands out even more. To lengthen short eyes, it is possible to do epicanthoplasty. However, it is only applicable for people who have wide set eyes. If distance between eyes is normal or short, they should be elongated with lateral canthoplasty. Lateral canthoplasty extends outer eye corner, thus providing better sclera exposure and making eyes look bigger. To achieve proper cosmetic effect on short eyes, it is necessary to do both double eyelid surgery and lateral canthoplasty.


Lateral canthoplasty that was made in improper way has a high risk of reccurence in process of recovery. Please make sure to find blepharoplasty specialists to receive operation that does not require revision.
