Elevated lateral corners of the eyes, or slanted eyes, can display an intense and vicious appearance. By levelling the corners of the eyes and creating double eyelids (refer to double eyelid surgery pages), it can remarkably change the person's impression to give a charming and friendly appearance.
Slanted eyes can often give off a strong and chic impression but also can make someone look arrogant or angry depending on personal viewpoints. Lateral Canthoplasty and Hot’z Surgery can create the most ideal length and shape of the eyes with customized surgeries to each patients' desires.
At Wonjin, we do not make incisions to the lateral conjunctiva when we perform Lateral Canthoplasty surgery. This prevents the exposure of red and raw tissues and also prevents the incision site to reattach. A gentle and charming appearance can be achieved by combining double eyelid surgeries with canthoplasty surgeries. .
