Epicanthoplasty. . .should you do it?
Thank you for the photograph and question.
An epicanthoplasty would look nice on you, however, always remember that this is the most likely area to have a visible scar. When done correctly it can look fantastic. When done quickly and aggressively it can definitely leave a visible incision that is difficult to deal with. So knowing that have a discussion with your surgeon beforehand to find out not only what your comfort level with this procedure is but also the surgeons.
Hope that was helpful
