Correct epicanthal fold
- You can have surgery to correct the epicanthal fold,
- If so, be prepared for the risk (about 1 in 5 operations), of a visible, even unsightly scar that cannot be removed.
- If you have surgery, it should be done under magnification - at times, the visibility of the scar is because minute details of the fold were overlooked. See a Board Certified Plastic or Oculuoplastic Surgeon. Best wishes.
Epicanthoplasty is the surgery.
