Perfect Ratio for Beautiful Eyes

We believe that in order to achieve beautiful eyes, the size and proportion must be considered. The delicate skills of our surgeons and immaculate design techniques naturally allows for the eyes to look much bigger and clearer. Our exclusive eye specialists at Wonjin perform all eyelid surgeries pursuing patient's satisfaction.

  • Beautiful Eye ShapeThe most ideal standardized eye has same ratio of the width of eye and interocular distance. The ideal width range is about 30mm~34mm.
  • Perfect symmetry for beautiful eye surgeryThe medial epicantho (inner corner of eye) should be connected with Ala of nose and lateral epicantho (outer corner of eye) should also be lined with Ala of nose straightly as well.
  • Perfect Eye Surgery RatioThe eyes should be slanted upwards slightly over the horizontal line from inner to outer corner of the eyes.

Surgeon's Recommendations

Surgical Planning for Eye Surgery

Surgeon's Recommendations

STEP 1 Double Eyelid Surgery

Double Eyelid Surgeries are performed accordingly to the patients' eye shape and structure, whilst considering the musculature structure and the amount of fat deposits on the eyelid. Depending on the conditions of the patients' eye structure, non-incision, partial incision, and incision methods of surgery can be considered.

STEP 2 Double Eyelid Surgery + Epicanthoplasty

The Mongolian fold, a common feature of the eyes of Asian descent, makes the inner corner of eyes look pinched. The combination of epicanthoplasty and double eyelid surgery can widen the eyes, and create a more distinctively appealing eyes. Magic Epicanthoplasty, in particular, leaves no visible scars on the inner corner of the eyes in comparison to regular epicanthoplasty. Epicanthoplasty alone can widen the narrow eye width.

STEP 3 Double Eyelid Surgery + Epicanthoplasty + Lateral Canthoplasty

Epicanthoplasty and Lateral Canthoplasty can drastically widen the eyes. Epicanthoplasty can make you look sharp and bright, and lateral canthoplasty allows for an aristocratic appearance. Wonjin’s Lateral Canthoplasty has a very low chance of the outer corners of the eyes to re-attach to itself in the future.

STEP 4 Ptosis Correction + Epicanthoplasty + Lateral Canthoplasty (+Hot’z Surgery)

This is the best method to enlarge your eyes. Ptosis Correction exposes the pupil that is covered by the eyelid. Lateral Canthoplasty and Hot’z Surgery can further expose the Sclera (white region of the eye ball) on the lateral section of eye, inevitably allowing the eyes to look much bigger.
