It is often said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, and never has that been more true than in today’s world where cameras are everywhere and a perfect “selfie” is a must-have. Today’s Western standards of beauty often focus on a balanced facial profile, with harmonized facial features that blend seamlessly together. Luckily, for those of us who are unhappy with our facial profile, modern surgical techniques can correct many minor cosmetic defects in order to bring features into a more pleasing harmony with each other and accentuate the natural beauty of your face.

Viewing these unretouched “Before and After” photos of patients who have had eye surgery performed by skilled, experienced oculofacial and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir in Beverly Hills, California demonstrates the subtle, natural changes that cutting-edge cosmetic procedures can offer, bringing facial features into a cleaner, more naturally-appealing balance. These photos in particular show the pleasing results of canthoplasty (either performed alone or in conjunction with complementary eye surgery procedures), a procedure designed to correct a negative or neutral canthal tilt, or the lateral positioning of the eye.

Canthoplasty is not a cosmetic surgery, rather it is reconstructive procedures that supports the lateral canthus, or the junction of the upper and lower eyelids on the outside of the face (the medial canthus is the junction of the upper and lower eyelids on the inside of the face, near the nose). Surgeons is a search for “things to do” have mistakenly pushed canthal surgery for cosmetic purposes. This reflects inexperienced on the part of these surgeons. Dr. Steinsapir reserves canthal surgery for specific situations. Specifically, it is very helpful for individuals having cosmetic lower eyelid surgery where time and environmental factors have caused wear and tear on these tissues. Canthal surgery supports the pleasing almond shape of the eyes. Canthal surgery is essential when the outer corner of the eyelids is not correctly positioned and it is an essential component for the correction of post-surgical issues that complicate the satisfaction of many individuals who have had cosmetic eyelid surgery in the past. Individuals with a negative or neutral canthal tilt may also be concerned about the appearance of their lower eyelids, which is also heavily dependent on the lateral canthus. These “Before and After” photos of real patients clearly show the dramatic alterations that canthoplasty can have on improving the overall balance of the facial profile, without making significant changes in the natural appearance of the patient.
