Overcorrection and Slanted Eye from Unecessary Canthopexy on Right Eye - Houston, TX

My girlfriend had upper and lower bleph and...

My girlfriend had upper and lower bleph and canthopexy performed on both eyes 4 weeks ago. She mistakingly, requested to have both eyes performed with canthopexy, when she only needed her left eye fixed. The PS created an incision from her brow to the bottom of her eye (about 2.5 inches long) to take skin up to make room for the unnecessary canthopexy. Now her right eye is slanted.

The cons were that a canthopexy surgery was performed when the PS said only the left eye needed, but since she insisted before surgery, both eyes had canthopexy, and her right eye had excess skin removed to slant the eye up.

Would skin grafting and a canthopexy release restore her right eye to what it would looked like had this not happened?

Altough the healing time took longer than average...

Altough the healing time took longer than average (about 4-6 months to heal vs. 1-2 months) the surgery and results are so much better than we could have hoped for. The end result looks nothing like the post operation and she looks and feels like a supermodel. Most importantly is that she healed, had no side affects, and Dr. Mentz and his staff were comforting and supportive throughout the healing process. The longer healing time was more than likely individual to her case and is not something that would not normally happen. Dr. Mentz removed the canthopexy from the eye he discoraged her from having about 2 months post operation for free. After the canthopexy was removed both eyes healed fine and the result is natural and looks perfect.
