Canthoplexy or Canthoplasty??

Hi. I've asked this question before but I guess in the wrong way. I want my eyes to look more like on the second pic, in order for me to look this way I have to pull my hair or wear a ponytale. Pic one shows you how I look when I don't pull it. Please let me know which procedure is better for me??? Thanks!

Repositioning of a low lateral canthus

Ideally the lateral canthus should be 2 mm higher than the medial canthus.  An examination would be needed to see if you actually have a low lateral canthus.  If the canthal insertion is actually low then it is possible that it could be raised to an improved positioning.  A possible correction would include a cantholysis and canthopexy.

Would advise you against eyelid surgery.

The possibility of noticeable asymmetry after bilateral surgery of the canthus regardless of specific technique compels me to advise you against surgery of any kind.
