possible to manip. soft tissue for wider set eyes?

possible to manip. soft tissue for wider set eyes?

Postby p0ison1vy » Fri Dec 31, 2010 10:22 am

I'm aware of how unfeasible it is to get craniofacial surgery out of an aesthetic wish to change eye distance...

but Is it possible to manipulate the soft tissue around the eye to make the eyes seem further apart?
for example, could the Medial Canthus be moved?

right,
how specifically would eye function be affected though?...

i cant say i know anything at all about eye anatomy, but what about simply moving the skin the at the inner corners laterally? rather than the whole tendon
im aware that would change eye shape as well,
but is it possible?

Well, for one, you don't have close set eyes. If you can fit 'one eye' between both eyes, then you don't have close set eyes. For two, the inner canthus is FIXED. So, no option of moving that medially or 'manipulating soft tissue'. Even if you could (which you can't), it would shorten the horizontal distance of the palpebral fissure which is the distance between the medial and lateral canthus which would give a deformed looking palpebral fissure shape.

What could work would be to close in on the platform of the upper lid as to make the eyes appear less round. That would be done by adding some fat to lower the high fold over your upper lid. Perhaps, if you had less platform of the upper lid showing and your fold was dropped a tad lower, they would appear more narrow. Basically, you have a lot of 'make up space' to your upper lid. You should put your photo on Dr. Yang's board and ask him if he thinks lowering the upper fold to cover up some of the platform of your upper lid could help.

A possibility that could help give the illusion of eyes being further apart would be to taper in the upper bridge of the nose and for that, you would need to consult with a really good nose doctor.

It is important to select doctors to consult with who actually can answer your questions and demonstrate that to your satisfaction. You could ask around in the 'ask an expert' section too. However, in your case, you can save your consultation money because there is no (practical) actual procedure to set the eyes further apart.
Please Note: NO PMs please.

Digging up

My eyes are little too far apart (intercanthal distance is bigger than one eye width), however, pulling the skin on my nose makes them appear closer together. Pic below, hope you get the idea. Is it possible to achieve the same effect permanently with a few incissions?
