Can Wrap Around Orbital Implants Create A More Compact Eye Look?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to add complete wrap around orbital implants to square out my orbitals and to give my orbitals a compact look. I was wondering if the photoshop look on the right image is a achievable with a wrap around orbital implant?
A:Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. I would think that in order to achieve your photoshopped image that periorbital augmentation as you have shown in the implant design would go a long way in that regard. But I don’t think the upper eyelid change you have shown will occur just by periorbital augmentation alone. That change involves dropping down the upper eyelid which will likely require adding volume to the actual upper eyelid as well.
