Before & After

Eyes with wide gap in between

Patients who have a wide gap between their eyes generally receive Epicanthoplasty to sharpen their appearance. A combination of surgeries may be required to restore the balance of the face.


The wide space between the eyes, commonly observed on people with Asian heritage, is generally due to the Mongolian fold in the inner corner of the eyes. Epicanthoplasty may help shorten the gap by opening up the Mongolian folds.
As there are many variable factors that makes up for the wide gap between the eyes, careful diagnosis of the causative problem is required, and determine whether other surgeries such as blepharoplasty or Hot’z surgery is required in combination with epicanthoplasty..
