An Epicanthoplasty procedure aims to lengthen the inner parts of the eye to make the eyes bigger, brighter and more alert. It is Also called the “inner corner fold removal” or “Mongolian fold correction”, this is a cosmetic procedure done by Malaysia’s only Craniofacial Surgeon, Dr.Mohd Ali. He is a qualified Plastic Surgeon of 15 years and sub-specialised in Craniofacial Surgery, meaning an expert in the reconstruction of head, ears, eyes, nose, mouth, face and neck region.
An Epicanthoplasty is sought by women and men who would like to adopt eyes that not only “appear bigger, brighter, and more alert” but actually bigger physiologically. This procedure does not only focus on the inner eye fold, but also addresses the outer corner of the eyes. With lateral Epicanthoplasty, eyes can be significantly lengthened and slanted eyes can be corrected.
Epicanthoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can be taken advantage by anyone who wishes to literally open their eyes wider than is physiologically possible. Specifically, Epicanthoplasty is an ideal procedure for patients, whether male or female, who:
- Are in relatively good health
- Wish to improve their overall look without sacrificing descent or ethnicity
- Have undergone or wishes to undergo double eyelid surgery to enhance their look further
Once a patient has fully decided on Epicanthoplasty, a pre-surgical evaluation is performed to assess the severity of the Epicanthal fold. Once assessed, the incisions are planned and marked. There are two different types of Epicanthoplasty, which are:
- Medial Epicanthoplasty – This focuses mainly on the inner corner of the eye, making the eye look bigger and more open; it can also straighten slanted eyes.
- Lateral Epicanthoplasty – This procedure does not only focus on the inner eye fold, but also addresses the outer corner of the eyes. With lateral Epicanthoplasty, eyes can be significantly lengthened and slanted eyes can be corrected.
Following a thorough assessment, the doctor will advise as to which procedure is best for the patient’s specific needs. The actual Epicanthoplasty usually starts with the application of local anaesthesia (LA).
Epicanthal surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis and lasts about 30 minutes to an hour. After surgery, the eyelids would appear swollen and bruised. A recovery period of two weeks is often recommended. During recovery, the eyelids are allowed to heal and return to normal, so patients are advised to rest and refrain from strenuous activities and sports. Pain medication is prescribed to manage pain. Wearing eye makeup is discouraged until after the stitches have been removed which is usually after a week.
