What is canthoplasty (cat eye surgery)?

Canthoplasty, also known as cat eye surgery, is a procedure that reshapes the shape of the eye by tightening and stretching it horizontally. To do this, the surgeon repositions the outer corner of the eye and changes its lateral tilt.

The lateral tilt of the eye affects the overall expressiveness of the face. If it's slanted, it makes the face look perpetually sad. The Cat's Eye technique is generally used to correct drooping eyes, often due to aging, for a more expressive look.

There are two types of canthoplasty:

  • Lateral canthoplasty, to create an almond-shaped cat eye.
  • Epicanthoplasty, to reshape the inner corner of the eye.

Indications for canthoplasty

The delicate eye contour area is particularly vulnerable to external aggressions: pollution, UV rays, temperature changes... This area is characterized by a thinner epidermis than the rest of the face. As a result, it tends to age prematurely compared to other areas of the face and requires special care and attention.

Today, more and more young people are opting for a Canthoplasty to obtain the "Cat Eye". During the procedure, the outer cantle of the eyelid is lifted, tightened, and repositioned. Depending on the patient's problems, it may be combined with a blepharoplasty or brow lift. 

In addition to aesthetic trends, the Cat eyes technique is also used to correct bulging or round eyes, in cases where the lateral border has fallen due to aging or trauma. 

A canthoplasty is recommended when the eye has a very flat, horizontal profile, without the upturned "wing" that makes feminine eyes so glamorous.

Procedure for cat eye surgery in Turkey

Cat eye surgery in Turkey is usually performed under local anesthesia under the guidance of internationally renowned surgeons. With extreme precision, the surgeon lifts the outer corner of the eye where the eyelids meet, called the canthus. There, the surgeon works on the canthus tendon through a small incision. He or she squeezes and pulls it upward, then closes it with stitches.

The incisions made during this procedure are minimal, and the resulting scars are often unnoticeable. In fact, the surgeons at our partner clinics in Turkey can disguise them well.

Looking for an enchanting, almond-shaped look and enhanced beauty? Canthoplasty in Turkey could be the ideal solution for you. Opt for a free teleconsultation with a qualified plastic surgeon for personalized care and expert advice.

Recovery Time

Although this is a minimally invasive procedure, there is still some recovery time to be expected.

Here's what you can expect during the first two weeks after canthoplasty:

  • Pain and sensitivity around the eyes.
  • Swelling of the eyelids and eye area.
  • Bruising around the eyes.
  • Itching: Lubricating eye drops may help relieve this discomfort.

Most patients feel well enough to return to work after about a week. However, it is important to follow your surgeon's instructions for optimal healing.

Postoperative instructions

To ensure the effectiveness of the surgery, the patient must follow certain recommendations of the doctor, such as

  • Sleep on your back with your head elevated.
  • Apply cold compresses.
  • Avoid wearing contact lenses.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes.

Canthopexy: Less invasive treatment

There is also a less invasive treatment, which does not cut the tendons but is limited to the use of precisely positioned sutures to stretch and stabilize the tendon of the lateral canthus.

In this case, the healing time is faster than with canthopexy. However, it's uncommon for canthopexy to be conducted as a standalone procedure. Nevertheless, the doctor will determine the most suitable approach to ensure the patient's satisfaction, and all decisions will be made during an initial consultation.

Cat eye surgery: Prices in Turkey

On average, a canthoplasty in Turkey costs between 2100 and 2400 Euros. However, it's important to note that this price can vary depending on several factors.
