Can You Get Plastic Surgery to Fix Close-set Eyes?

Fixing close set eyes is not realistic


To undergo major craniofacial surgery for hypotelorism (close set eyes) is an enormous surgery, with huge costs and risks.  Not likely to be a reasonable option unless you have a severe deformity.  Photos would help.
