Canthopexy change of upper eyelids
- Yes, a canthopexy can temporarily change the outer upper eyelid - the lifting of the lower lid bunches tissue in the out upper lid.
- Give this 2-3 months to subside.
- The retraction despite the canthopexy depends on your eye anatomy and the surgery - this should be discussed with your surgeon, it cannot be answered long distance. Best wishes.

I would recommend that you discuss this with your blepharoplasty surgeon. He will be able to predict best what the future for you holds. If you have lasting objectionable changes, surgical repair should be straight forward.
