Relationship between nose bridge and epicanthoplasty
There is not much relationship between the two. The inner corner of the eye will not be pulled sufficiently with a bridge to the nose, because the distance between the two is too great to have any effect.
If you have an epicanthoplasty followed by a nasal bridge, the distance between the two eyes will be altered. The two eyes will look closer together, which is good or bad, depending on your anatomy.
