Will Brow Bone Augmentation Make My Eyes Less Deep?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a question about eye area; what procedures would be necessary to replicate those eyes? My eyes are not as deep set and instead of this angular shape are more almond shaped. Canthal tilt also sits lower. So I guess orbital implants with horizontal and vertical projection would be necessary. But how much vertical augmentation of supraorbital rim can be achieved and will brows come down? 

I attach front and profile of my eyes and the ones I would like to achieve. Thank you very much.

A:I don’t think you can replicate that eye shape exactly. But certainly periorbital augmentation is the key with brow bone augmentation being the most important. The eyebrows will come down with brow bone implants particularly with a design that lowers the bone edge…just not as much as the example you have provided.
