LATERAL CANTHOPLASTY

This procedure lengthens and sharpens the outer corner of the eye, and corrects a blunt and/or short outer corner. It therefore increases the horizontal dimension of the eye by elongating the outer corner.

RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

This procedure is performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation or intravenous sedation and takes about one and a half hours. Incisions are made along the upper and lower eyelids around the outer corner of the eye. The outer corner of the eye is opened, and a flap of upper eyelid skin is relocated to maintain the opening of the outer corner. The wounds are carefully closed with fine sutures. The strategic placement of the incisions results in fine scars that are hardly visible once they have faded.
