I would like my eyes lengthened horizontally. Will lateral canthoplasty help me achieve this?

In my opinion if my eyes were longer they would appear better to me with eye liner. My sisters eyes are pretty long and they would be the length i would like mine to be. There is a picture of me and then one of her.

Unhappy with look of eyes

  • Your eyes look very prominent. This is attractive but -
  • Doing a lateral canthoplasty on very prominent eyes can be a disaster - pulling the lid below the eye.
  • First have your thyroid checked - high thyroid can cause prominent eyes.
  • And see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Ophthalmologic Surgeon to assess your eyes and what might be done.
