Can I Increase The Interpupillary Distance Between My Eyes?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have always been curious to know if it is possible to increase the pupillary distance between the eyes? I feel it gives a more feminine look and I just wanted to know if this surgery is possible? If not, is it possible in the near future with new technological advancements? Thank you for your time.

A: The eyes can be made wider if one is willing to undergo orbital box osteotomies as an adult. That is a major commitment that requires a full bicoronal scalp incision and a frontal craniotomy to perform. I do not see this surgical approach changing any time in the near or far future.
