What is Canthoplasty surgery?

Canthoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery that focuses on the outer corners of the eyes. By lifting these parts of the skin, the surgeon can offer a smooth, wrinkle-free skin and younger-looking eyes. Cat eye surgery aims to alter the shape of the eyelids to provide attractive and natural-looking results.

Medically known as lateral canthoplasty, cat eye lift is a reconstructive surgery. It involves tightening the skin, muscles, and ligaments in the outer corner of the eyes (lateral).

During the surgery, the surgeon makes a small incision in the outer corner of the eyes so that he or she can have access to the canthal tendon (which is responsible for the eyelids’ position). Then, the tendon is repositioned and tightened to achieve the desired lifted look in the eyes. The new position of the tendon is then fixed using sutures. The entire procedure will take about 1 to 2 hours.

Although the basics are usually the same, each oculoplasty surgeon implements their own surgical techniques to provide optimal outcomes. You can discuss your surgeon’s methods during your pre-op consultation with them.

What is Canthopexy?

Canthopexy is a less invasive procedure that offers the same lifted effects using sutures. The surgery is ideal for those who wish to lift their lateral eyelid without reshaping their eyes.

Celebrities and social media are hands-down the main drivers of the new almond eyes trend. Also called the “foxy eyes”, the look almost dominates Kendal Jenner and Bella Hadid’s Instagram accounts.

The canthoplasty procedure is now more popular than ever before because who doesn’t like to have penetrating eyes similar to Hadid’s?

Frequently Asked Questions About Canthoplasty

What to expect after canthoplasty?

You may have mild to moderate swelling and bruising for about a week post-op. Some extent of soreness and tightness is also normal. Your eyes might get dry and itchy and you might have blurry vision for a few days. Your doctor might prescribe medication to subside these side-effects.

Are the results of cat eye surgery permanent?

It depends on the type of surgery that you choose to undergo. If the surgery is focused on the lower eyelid (which canthoplasty usually is), then you can expect the results to be long-lasting. It also depends on your age and skin elasticity as the process of aging happens regardless of the surgery.

Will there be visible scars after having canthoplasty surgery?

Not when you go with an experienced surgeon who is worth his salt! This type of eyelid surgery requires minor incisions and an expert knows how to make them in the subtlest way possible.

What type of anesthesia is used during the canthoplasty surgery?

Most surgeons prefer local anesthesia while performing canthoplasty.
