Eyelids - Canthopexy and Canthoplasty
PRINT

Canthus is the name given to the lid corners. Lateral Canthopexy is the name of the procedure which is performed to elevate the outer corners of the lids. The lateral Canthoplasty is a similar procedure with similar purpose. The difference between them is that Canthopexy is the connection of the corner in a higher position, while Canthoplasty is the connection of the corner at a higher position after this has been detached from its previous attachment point.

These procedures can create tremendous youthfulness to the eyes, which have the outer corners low or the lower lid margin loose and low. These problems make the lids look unattractive due to the white colour shown between the coloured pupils and the lower lid. These outpatient procedures can be done under simple local anaesthesia or by using a combination which would result in complete mental and physical calmness.

Mild swelling and bruising may resolve within one week.
