Can Orbital Box Osteotomies Male My Eyes Look Deeper?

Q: Dr. Eppley, 1. I am an Asian, but can you make my eyes go deep like Westerners with orbital box osteotomy? 

2. Is this surgery as dangerous as the Lefort3 surgery? 

3. If it is possible to operate deeper, I wonder if the size of the eyes will decrease or increase .

A: The only effective and safe way to make the eyes deeper is periorbital augmentation. Orbital box osteotomies can move the eye horizontally or vertically but can not make the eye look deeper.
