Epicanthal Fold -Is epicanthus (Mongolian folds) abnormal? No

4.Is epicanthus (Mongolian folds) abnormal? No



Caucasians, unlike the eyes of Asians, have no epicanthus. Instead, they have a double eyelid in shape of out-folder(parallel line), and the eyeline is exposed completely from the inner corner of the eyes. That is the reason why their eyes seem refined, more open, and vivid. This is merely a racial and genetic difference. However, the epicanthi are not to be thought as strange or unusual because these are the usual and dominant structures for Koreans or other related races. Although epicanthi are not medical issues, the surgery may be needed in order to enhance the beauty of Asian eyes.




Examples) Very severe types of epicanthi 



5. Effects of the epicanthus on Asian eyes


An eyeline of a Caucasian is exposed almost completely, whereas that of Asians is veiled by the hanging down of the skin (in cases where the person does not have a double eyelid.). Drooping skin on the eyes starts from the epicanthus. For Asians, the epicanthi are the conclusive factor that making eyes look small, narrow, and bluff. There is not much to be said about who the good candidates are (whether the epicanthus is severe or not) for plastic surgery of Asian eyelid.

In cases of non-severe epicanthi the results of the surgery will turn out to be more attractive and refined, while, in cases of severe epicanthi, the double eyelids can hardly be made and even start to slightly fade away after some time, or have some problems due to the tension of the epicanthus. When correction of the epicanthus with proper epicanthoplasty is done along with exposing your eyelines completely, clear and shining eyes can be achieved while maintaining oriental beauty.
