Epicanthoplasty is eye surgery to remove the mongolian folds. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with Blepharoplasty to achieve a more defined and opened crease from the inner eye.
Effects of epicanthoplasty :
- It decreases intercanthal distance (eyes become closer) and the ratio between length of eyes and intercanthal distance becomes closer to ideal ratio of 1:1.
- It reveals medial half of eyes more by reversing drooping of the Mongolian fold to make eyes look bigger and brighter.
- It reveals medial half of double fold more also and make the line more natural and softer.
- It moves medial canthus not only medially but also upward and eyes look less slanted and impression becomes softer.
