What is epicanthoplasty(magic epicanthoplasty)?

Previous epicanthoplasty procedures left scars. Wonjin’s epicanthoplasty makes a tiny incision on the inner fold of the eye and sutures inside leaving no scars. The fold that covers the inner corner of the eye is colloquially called a ‘Mongolian fold.’ This can make eyes appear far apart and give a stuffy impression. Through epicanthoplasty we can increase the length of the eyes giving a clear and smooth eye shape and softer facial expression. When performed in conjunction with double eyelid surgery, you can get even more satisfactory results.

Appropriate for those who

  1. Want bigger and clear looking eyes
  2. Have crossed appearing eyes due to Mongolian folds
  3. Have a wide gap between eyes
  4. Wish to have revision surgery

What is Lateral canthoplasty ?

Lateral canthoplasty is a type of blepharoplasty and is well suited for eyes of short length as well as eyes possessing raised outer corners. This surgery can also be called Hotzcanthoplasty when dealing with the outer corners of the eyes. Wonjin can help you attain more beautiful eyes especially while smiling. This surgery in conjunction with double eyelid surgery will provide even better results for Asian eyes.

Appropriate for those who

  1. Have short length of eyes
  2. Do not experience change in eyes after epicanthoplasty
  3. Possess short width between eyes, unable to have epicanthoplasty
  4. Have fierce, cat-like eyes
  5. Have little exposure of the whites of the eyes, making them appear cross-eyed

Lateral canthoplasty features

For normal lateralcanthoplasty procedures, during the recovery process, the desquamated skin would stick back together. WONJIN’s lateralcanthoplasty improves on this technique and decreases any possible chance of recurrence.

Ptosis correction, non-incision

This procedure does not use incisions, but instead uses minute openings to correct the muscles and eyelid. However, extreme cases of ptosis require correction with incision.
