Medial Epicanthoplasty

Double Eyelid Surgery

Double Eyelid SurgeryA vertical fold of skin is sometimes present in the inner corner of the eye (the medial canthus). The presence of this fold, known as the epicanthic fold, blunts and shortens the inner corner of the eye and causes the eye to look shorter in the horizontal dimension. The epicanthic fold also creates a downward tension on the skin near the inner corner of the eye, causing the double eyelid crease to collapse in that area and join the medial canthus.

Medial epicanthoplasty is a surgical procedure that addresses this condition by removing the excess skin fold. As a result, the inner corner of the eye becomes sharper and longer, and the eye becomes longer in the horizontal dimension. The double eyelid crease will not collapse near the inner corner. The whole eye looks more attractive as a result.

Although medial epicanthoplasty is not a new procedure, older surgical techniques produced unsightly scars. More recently, new techniques have been developed that result in inconspicuous scars while correcting the epicanthic fold effectively. Dr Huang uses an innovative Korean technique that is effective and yet produces inconspicuous scars: the rounded inner corner of the eyes is opened, lengthened and sharpened, thus enlarging the eyes in the horizontal dimension and enhancing the eyes in the process. The scars are strategically placed so as to be hardly visible.
