Lateral canthal elevation
Yes, the lateral canthus can be released and elevated to a better position. This can be performed alone, or in conjunction with a blepharoplasty. This can be performed in the office setting, and sutures are usually removed in 3-5 days.Andrew Campbell, M.D.Facial Plastic SpecialistQuintessa Aesthetic Centers
Is there a cosmetic procedure where the lateral canthus is raised higher?
Lateral canthoplasty is the termed for raising the lateral canthus but it is often NOT enough by itself and it can make it worse unless additional necessary steps are also made. See link below on almond eye surgery.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
The answer is that without some idea of your concerns, it is impossible to give a meaningful response. There is a great deal of misunderstanding about what lateral canthoplasty can and can't accomplish. Generally there are many issues that make an eye look more round and less almond. For that reason, generally no a lateral canthoplasty is often not the answer.
