Is a Canthopexy Sufficient For My Case? (photo)
20 yrs., and looking sick and tired without an expensive amount of makeup around/on my eyes. My eyes are small in relation to my face, and have what I have been told is an anti-mongoloid slant, and thick lids. I am wondering: what procedure(s) are best for this? I have been told a Canthopexy, but I fear that a canthopexy alone, with my thick lids, would result in manly, narrow, tinier-looking eyes. Thanks!
