Surgery to change eye shape to cat/almond ?
Many ways to get the look you want
I would suggest you try to think of the "look" you want rather than the "eye shape" you want. You want expressive, intriguing, seductive eyes, right? If there was a better way to get there than by changing your eye shape you would be interested, right? And there are certainly easier ways, like with modern cosmetic techniques using color and shading, to add depth and intrigue to your eyes. Products like latisse can add some drama with increased lash length. Your brow position is lower than in the two models, and brow shaping or even brow lift can add expressiveness to your eyes. Changing you actual eye shape is more difficult. Adding volume to your cheek will frame your eyes, and may raise the lower lid a small amount. A procedure called a lateral canthoplasty could change your eye shape, but is typically only performed to correct a loose eyelid and you also run the risk of prolonged eye irritation, dryness, and looking unnatural. A face to face discussion with a cosmetic surgeon who is interested in surgery of the eyes and face will help you develop a plan. Bryan Rolfes, MD
