What is Epicanthoplasty?

Epicanthoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance of the eyes by adjusting the inner corner, known as the epicanthal fold. This fold can sometimes give the eyes a narrower appearance, and Epicanthoplasty works to create a more open and balanced look. Dr. Eric Li, serving the communities of San Jose, Los Gatos, and the Bay Area, specializes in this procedure, offering patients a chance to achieve their desired aesthetic goals with precision and expertise.

Who are the best candidates for Epicanthoplasty?

The best candidates for Epicanthoplasty in San Jose, Los Gatos, and the surrounding Bay Area typically include individuals who:

  • Have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure and understand its limitations
  • Are in good overall health and do not have any underlying medical conditions 
  • Have fully developed facial features, as Epicanthoplasty is typically performed on adults rather than children or adolescents

Epicanthoplasty First Step

What’s the first step?

The first step in considering Epicanthoplasty is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Li. During this initial appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals, concerns, and medical history with him and our team. We will evaluate your candidacy for Epicanthoplasty, explain the procedure in detail, and help you understand what to expect before, during, and after surgery.

What to expect on the day of Epicanthoplasty surgery

On the day of Epicanthoplasty surgery, you can expect to arrive at our office with a team of absolute professionals. After completing any necessary paperwork, you will meet with Dr. Li and the surgical team to go over the details of the procedure once more. 

Anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort during the surgery. Dr. Li will then perform the Epicanthoplasty procedure, which involves making careful incisions to modify the inner corners of the eyes. These incisions are meticulous and made so carefully to avoid scarring as they heal. 

Once the surgery is complete, you will be monitored closely as you wake up from anesthesia. After ensuring your stability, you will be provided with post-operative instructions and allowed to go home to begin your recovery process.

Epicanthoplasty recovery

It’s essential to avoid rubbing or touching the treated areas and to follow any guidelines for cleaning and applying medication after this procedure. You may need to use cold compresses to reduce swelling and pain medication as prescribed by Dr. Li. It is crucial to attend follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure that you are healing properly. Most patients can expect to return to their regular activities within a week or two, although strenuous activities should be avoided for a longer period to allow for a full recovery.
