What is Canthoplasty?
Canthoplasty gives you large and gentle eyes!
Canthoplasty is divided into epicanthoplasty and lateral canthoplasty.
Epicanthoplasty closes a wide gap between the eyes by removing the Mongolian folds and lateral canthoplasty corrects closely-set eyes.
JW’s epicanthoplasty gives your eyes a more natural look by reducing the force that pulls the inside skin of epicanthic folds. Epicanthoplasty and Lateral canthoplasty combined with blepharoplasty (double eyelid surgery) allows for your eyes to become bigger by lengthening their width. In addition, it can correct closely-set eyes and make your eyes more proportional.

- 02. Those whose outer corner of their eyes faces a left and right direction but the width of the eyes is short
- 03. Those whose width of the eyes is narrow

Procedure of lateral canthoplasty
STEP 01 Diagnose current eye condition prior to surgery and design a customized ideal eye shape.
STEP 02 Incise the minimum amount of skin and peel the skin after incising the designed area. Then firmly secure the incised areas.
STEP 03 Stitch the incised areas.
STEP 04 A large, refreshed and natural-looking eye shape is completed.
Tip. If the outer corners of your eyes are angled upward, medial canthoplasty (downward method) can make your eyes look more gentle and soft.
By undergoing lateral canthoplasty and lowering the outer corners of the eyes, you can have gentle and feminine eyes with a wider eye width.
The golden ratio for the eyes
JW’s canthoplasty considers the balance and harmony of your face and eyes above all else.
Every patients has different skin thickness, fat volume, and other composition. Therefore, consultation with JW’s specialists is strongly recommended before undergoing eye surgery.
The size of the eye, which is the key of the golden ratio, can be divided into its width and height. The ideal width of the eyes is 30mm. It is ideal that the width of the eyes, the gap between them (roughly 30-36mm), and length of the tip lobule are equal. Beautiful eyes have pupils whose upper part is slightly covered by the eyelid and the rest (approximately 8-10mm) should be visible. In addition, the outer corners of the eyes, the outer eyebrow, and the tip lobule should be in a straight line.
Dual canthoplasty that considers the balance and harmony of your face and eyes above all else!
Not only does JW’s canthoplasty make your eyes bigger, but it also optimizes the harmony of your face and eyes by considering the exposure of Lacrimal lakes, the gap between the eyes, the parts covered by the epicanthal folds, and the distance between the eye brow and the outer corners of the eyes.
