Can Custom Infraorbital-Malar Implants Decrease The Roundness and Scleral Show Of the Lower Eyelid?

Q: Dr. Eppley, To what degree can infraorbital implants affect the shape of the lower eyelid? My lower lid is just a touch of roundness to it with the inferior sclera visible to a small degree.

Can a custom infraorbital implants create a narrower eye with a more angular lower eyelid?

A: There is no question that custom infraorbital-malar implants can help drive up the lower eyelid level. Whether that is enough on its own to create a ‘more angular lower eyelid’ depends on the current shape of your eyelids. Most likely it would require some eye inner adjustment as well.
