Dont do the medial epicanthoplasty
I perform Asian eyelid surgery everyday and I may feel differently if I met you in person but I don't think you need a medial epicanthoplasty to get a look very close to what you are showing us here. You likely can have either suture technique or incision technique to create a crease that is a bit higher and parallel rather than tapered which will also open up the inner corner.
You are most likely very young so I also want to caution you to think about this for a while. You can always do it between high school and college or in between quarters while in college right after college or even in your mid 20s, Etc. You most likely are good-looking person with good features. Think for a long time whether or not you really want to change this particular feature of your eye. Many things can be revised after Asian eyelid surgery but it is almost impossible to reverse the effects of changing the appearance of the inner part of your eyelid crease and it is almost completely impossible to revise the medial epicanthoplasty.
When I say I perform Asian eyelid surgery every day I mean Monday through Friday everyday and I'm telling you to think this over before moving forward.
