Changing the shape of your eyes

You are right in your assessment of your eyes; you have a negative canthal tilt (outer aspects of your eyes tilting downward), scleral show (excess whites of your eyes showing) with some asymmetry.

A lateral canthopexy that takes the outer corner of your eye (lateral canthus) and secures it in a higher position on the bone of your eye socket will help to correct this tilt in your eyes and also lift the position of your lower eyelids to conceal more of the sclera of your eyes. Some of the asymmetry could be corrected with a differential pexy to create greater lift on your left.

You could expect a noticeable difference in the shape of your eyes and I wish you all the best in achieving a really nice result with this.
