Is it possible to get almond eyes or oriental eyes by surgery with my eyes
Thank you for your question.
If you are complaining about dropping of the eyelids or lower eyelid bagginess then you might be a good candidate for the Laser Blepharoplasty operation. Although the plastic surgery era is highly developed and there are new treatment models for several other procedures; there is still no efficient alternative of blepharoplasty operation. If you are not comfortable with the look of your eyelids blepharoplasty operation may be a solution for you
Epicanthal fold surgery is high risk.
You have a very almond shaped eye. In the photos you are retracting the upper eyelids. I wonder what you look like with a more relaxed expression.

Epicanthaplasty is high-risk surgery
First of all, it is important to recognize that epicanthal surgery is certainly possible, but the surgery is high risk for under correction and visible scarring, even in the best of experienced hands. There are non-surgical options for reducing the epicanthal folds, and I would definitely suggest trying those routes over surgery. You are young and making permanent decisions that could result in scars in this region may be regretted later In life.
As for deepening your sulcus – this can be done to make your eyes look less Asian, or for the personal preference of having a deeper sulcus for eye shadow placement. The procedure is fairly straightforward. However, as other doctors have mentioned, from an aesthetic standpoint I would not suggest you consider this procedure because (A) your anatomy is strikingly beautiful as-is, and (B) deepening the sulcus while retaining your epicanthal folds would potentially make your eyelid anatomy appear unbalanced.
If you want to experiment with modification without the permanency and risks of surgery, your superior sulcus could be opened up using some judiciously placed Botox. This would be complementary to the nonsurgical filler treatment of the epicanthal folds I mentioned above. This would be a far less risky plan then surgery, and would be my primary suggestion for you. Please try to find a specialist that is very experienced with treating the eyelid region. I wish you the very best.
