The eyelid lift procedure is becoming increasingly popular amongst patients, both to remove unwanted “bags” and excess skin as well as to improve the overall shape of the eye.
When the lower eyelid is loose, primarily due to aging or the outside corner of the eye is at a lower level than the inside corner, the eyes take on a “sad” or droopy appearance.
These conditions are readily correctable with a procedure called Canthopexy which re-suspends or tightens the outside corner of the eye, resulting in a “happier” and “brighter” appearance to the eyes.
Although it does create a slight change in the overall appearance of the eyes, giving a slightly “exotic” look, it cannot cause an Asian appearance if it does not exist pre-operatively. If that is the desired outcome, an entirely different procedure must be performed.
The results of a Canthopexy procedure are quite attractive and immediate. Dr. Wells will be pleased to share with you actual before and after pictures of patients who have successfully undergone the Canthopexy procedure with outstanding results.
Call Dr. Scott Wells’ office to schedule your Canthopexy consultation either at our Manhattan office in New York City or at our Long Island or Westchester offices.
