Short Eye Width
In case of short eye width, just the double eyelid surgery will not solve the problem. In some cases, it can even make the eye look unnatural. Therefore, Canthoplasty to elongate eye width is necessary with a consideration of eye’s length and width ratio and overall face shape.

Usually, Epicanthoplasty and Lateral Canthoplasty can make your eye width elongated. If the patient’s eye is short in length or has sleepy looking eyes, additional Ptosis Correction or Hot’z Surgery may be needed to achieve the ideal eye lines.
