How Can I Get That Model Eye Look?
Q: Dr. Eppley, So as you can see i have a certain eye area that looks nothing like my desired result (below), and i would like to know the best and most efficient surgeries and augmentations that would take me from what i have to something with the same characteristics as the model below. (a Fair amount of Hooding, 0 sclera exposure and positive canthal tilt). Also it might not be visible in the photo, but i also have a negative orbital vector that is especially striking whenever i squint or lift my eye.
A:I would say the major difference between you and the model eye look is that you need a lateral canthoplasty, spacer grafts to the lower eyelids and infraorbital-malar implant augmentation for the lower orbital area. The upper orbital area needs filling of the supratarsal area with some form of a fat graft. (fat injections or an en bloc fat graft) Your brows seem to be sufficiently low.
