Can I GetA 2nd Lateral Canthoplasty?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I was curious would a being on bone canthoplasty increase pfl? Also do you think raising my cabthal tilt would benefit me? I had a canthoplasty 3ish years ago. I’m not completely happy with it. I think my right eye is definitely better than my left, ( but I think both of them could benefit from another one.
A: While I don’t know the lateral canthoplasty technique that was done and what you looked like before it I can not say with certainty whether more tis o be gained by a secondary lateral canthoplasty. But in just looking at your lower lids it appears that it may be likely with the caveat that combining it with spacer grafts is the more assured approach. (the concept being that if one wants a different outcome than the first time plan B should not be identical to plan A)
