Types of Fox Eye Lift : Lateral, Medial & Dual Canthoplasty
What is Lateral Canthoplasty?
During Lateral canthoplasty the aesthetic surgeons anchores the eye corner to the lateral orbital rim after canthotomy. It is usually done with lower blepharoplasty to adjust the slackness and misplacement of the lower eyelid.
What is Medial Canthoplasty?
During Medial or Epicanthoplasty, the plastic surgeon reduces the length and the gap between the eyelids. It consists in removing some tissues from the inner corner of the eyes.
What is Dual Canthoplasty?
Dual Canthoplasty is a combination of Medial and Lateral Canthoplasty. This procedure generally aims to correct the bulging eyes.
The Canthoplasty procedure explained
It is a reconstructive surgery used to correct drooping eyes, by tightening the muscles or ligaments supporting the outer corners of the eyelid.
Eyelid surgery in Turkey essentially corrects the look of the eye. Canthopexy, on the other hand, is a less invasive surgery which is often confused with eyelid surgery, but which does not correct the shape of the eye.
Fox eye lift surgery is used to correct negative or neutral canthus slants and sagging eyelids, which can be a cause of distress for the patient who does not like the appearance of his eyelids.
The procedure varies from patient to patient, but the general goal is to cut the lower tendon, and then reposition or tighten it. To access this tendon, an incision is usually made at the outer corner of the eyelid. The tendon is pulled into its new position to support the eyelid, and then is glued back using stitches.
An experienced eye surgeon will take great care to make an incision in the natural crease of the eyelid, to minimize scarring after surgery.
If a patient has only slight fallout, it may be more appropriate to practice a less invasive canthopexy procedure. Normally, both procedures take between 1 and 2 hours depending on the used method.
Canthoplasty surgery : Recovery time
During recovery, pain, bruising and swelling may occur. However, they should disappear after 7-10 days.
Are there side effects during Recovery?
In some cases, people may notice a temporary vision alteration. However the visual acuity will improve without any medical intervention.
How to reduce side effects?
Try to keep your head elevated and rest as much as you can at first. Patients should avoid exercise, rubbing the eye area, or applying makeup for a week.
What is the price of canthoplasty in Turkey & Istanbul?
The price of lateral, medial or dual canthoplasty varies from one practicioner to another, and sometimes even from one patient to another. The following factors will affect costs:
Costs billed by the surgeon
The surgeon may ask for fees for a canthoplasty or eyelid surgery depending on his qualifications, experience and recognition in the field of eye surgery. Patients should appropriately choose a fully trained eye-plastic surgeon to perform sensitive plastic eye surgeries. The surgeon's fees should only be a secondary element to be taken into account in such procedures.
The location of the clinic and the cost of anesthesia
The fox eye lift surgery in Turkey can be performed under general or local anesthesia with sedation. The fees charged by the anesthesiologist or a registered nurse anesthetist must be taken into account. Their fees may vary depending on their qualifications and experience.
The procedure can be performed in a hospital or an eye surgery clinic in Antalya or Istanbul, an approved surgical center or a private operating room. The costs and benefits of each option will be different.
Patients should consider additional expenses such as medical tests, prescription drugs and postoperative visits to the surgeon's office. These expenses may seem minor, but they can combine to form a considerable amount.

During a canthoplasty, the surgeon begins by cutting the ligament that holds the lower eyelid. This one is then cut in half, and a new ligament is created and joined to the orbital bone.
This procedure aims to rejuvenate the eyes, tighten sagging eyelids, change the shape of the eyes to almond or make them look like cat eyes.
This surgery takes about two hours, and is performed under local anesthesia.
The scar due to the incision would be concealed by the natural fold created by the canthus.
