Can Uneven Eyes Caused by Canthopexy Be Corrected?
Can reconstructive surgery fix uneveness and upward slanted eyes?
My girlfriend had blepharoplasty and canthopexy performed 4 weeks ago. Unfortunately, she should have had canthopexy on only one eye. The PS recommended canthopexy for one eye, but my girlfriend requested both eyes the day of the surgery.
The incision on her eyes extends from her eyelid to 1/4 inch past the closing of her eyes where skin was pulled up to slant her eyes. Her eyes are now small, uneven and slanted.
Is it possible to reverse this procedure through reconstructive surgery such as a canthopexy release and skin grafting?
