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?
