Epicanthoplasty Scars?

Hi, i am 18 years old is going for double eyelid surgery in 2 months time. I am planning to also undergo epicanthoplasty. However, i am rather concerned about the scars. Will the scars be less noticeable on a younger person than an older person? Usually in what kind of situations will a person who is undergoing epicanthoplasty able to avoid having scars? And also, is it true that epicanthoplasty can enhance the nose bridge?

One of the drawbacks of medial epicanthoplasty is that the scars may be noticeable for a few weeks and occasionally few months but they usually heal very well.

If you are a non-smoker and generally heal without problems, the medial epicanthoplasty incisions generally heal well. The procedure is technique-dependent as well as patient dependent.
