I would like my eyes lengthened horizontally. Will lateral canthoplasty help me achieve this?

Unhappy with look of eyes
- Your eyes look very prominent. This is attractive but -
- Doing a lateral canthoplasty on very prominent eyes can be a disaster - pulling the lid below the eye.
- First have your thyroid checked - high thyroid can cause prominent eyes.
- And see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Ophthalmologic Surgeon to assess your eyes and what might be done.
