Epicanthal Fold -What is the visual effect of epicanthal folds?
6.What is the visual effect of epicanthal folds?
They look as if the width of eyes is small before epicanthoplasty.
The distance between eyes look wide and unclear before the surgery because the corner of the eye is not exposed.
Asymmetries caused by different shapes of the epicanthus in each eye
Pseudoesotropia. Looks as if the eyes are squinting due to the coverage of the corner of the eye.. The caruncle and inner white part of the eye (called sclera) is covered, making the eye look small.
5.Showing sharp images caused by inclined epicanthus.
Reinforcing effect of Magic epicanthoplasty over love-bands(a thickened portion on lower eyelid margin). They become prominent after Magic epicanthoplasty even without any procedure.
Epicanthus accompany fine wrinkles and pigmentations under the eyes. Magic epicanthoplasty improve these manifestations by releasing fibrosis.
When a double eyelid is accompanied with the severe epicanthus, it shows an in-fold crease, showing the outside line only because the medial crease is inhibited by the epicanthus. After Magic epicanthoplasty, the shapes have converted to in-out- or out-fold types of double eyelid.
Unnatural out-fold crease and acutely bended double eyelid crease which were caused by the epicanthus is improved.
The prickling of eyelashes into the eyeballs is improved which was originally caused by the inversion(rolling-in) of the eyelid accompanied by the epicanthus.
Improvement for dark circles may be visible. This ancillary effect can be achieved by releasing fibrosis of lower eyelid.
A softer eye image is expressed by converting the inner corner of the eye horizontally.
