In my specific case, how can I horizontally enlarge my eyes in order to achieve an almond shape ? I have read a lot, a lot, a lot on this topic and am more confused than ever. Lateral canthoplasty? Slight Ptosis?? Also, from a side view, I am concerned with the bulge below my eyes. Can this be filled with injection? I have now recieved micro-droplets of Volbella there. My doctor didn't want to inject too much. So then what is the main problem there? Too much muscle?

Horizontal enlargement of the eyes
In light of the fact there is no scleral show and the eyes appear normal shaped, there is no need for a canthopexy. You do not have ptosis and do not need a blepharoplasty. Leave well enough alone.
Fillers for lower eyelids
In regards to the shape of your eyes, you can definitely make a change BUT not for the better! Trying to alter the shape of your eyes can make things appear not natural so I do not recommend it. In regards to your lower eyelid area, you have some hollowness which can be improved with filler injections. See an oculoplastic specialist.
Creating Almond Eyes
The only way to change the shape of the eye is to change the tightness of the support system of the eyelids. This requires a canthoplasty or canthopexy. You could probably get by with a canthopexy as you appear to need very little movement. The only way to determine what you need is a consult with someone with significant experience in eyelid surgery.
