Key Point in
Lateral Canthoplasty Reconstruction

Lateral canthoplasty reconstruction is more difficult than the initial surgery!
The solution is double reconstruction!

Double lateral canthoplasty reconstruction is dividing the two layers of the mucous membrane and the
skin separately for reconstruction, which helps to reduce the possibility of recurrence and to improve
other side effects such as asymmetry.

Advantages of Lateral Canthoplasty Reconstruction

01

Can return to everyday life after the procedure.

02

Beautiful edges of the eyes are presented to the patient.

03

The recurrence rate is reduced from double reconstruction.

04

Scar & swelling are minimized.

Surgical Method of Lateral Canthoplasty Reconstruction

STEP 01

The shape is deformed and the mucous membrane is exposed from excessive lateral canthoplasty.

STEP 02

Incision is made on the skin and the mucous membrane in V-shape.

STEP 03

Drooping and attached mucous membranes are stitched up to be restored to the original state.

STEP 04

The skin is also stitched in the original position through the same method.
