Canthopexy Surgery

Best Canthopexy Surgery in India

People worldwide are more concerned about how they look and appear, especially when it comes to their facial features. The eyes are, referred to as the most important features of a person. However, sagging and droopy eyes can become a point of concern for people. Canthopexy is one such treatment that specifically allows the patient to have a much better physical appearance than before by targeting such problems. Visit our clinic to consult with our best cosmetic surgeons in India to discuss such conditions.

What Is Canthopexy?

Canthopexy surgery requires minimal surgical invasion for eyelid enhancement that can lift and tighten the sagging skin of the lower eyelids of a patient. The ridge form of the lower eyelid cradles the whole lower part of the eye giving a pleasing shape and frame of the eye. However, in some cases, the lower eyelids can become droopy, causing prominent discomfort and aesthetic distress to an individual. Sagging skin of the lower eyelid can make a person feel low on confidence with their aging skin.


Canthopexy surgery procedure is also known as lateral canthopexy surgery or cat-eye surgery in India. It is a type of corrective eyelid surgery that can alter the entire eye shape permanently with lateral canthus correction. In this particular surgery, an outer corner where the lower lid meets the upper one is surgically tightened by our top cosmetic surgeons for elongating the eye. The procedure is an oculoplastic procedure available at The Esthetic Clinics in India that creates an almond-shaped or the famous cat-eye.


The procedure is typically used to correct a patient’s eyelid laxity with age giving the upper eyelid a more droopy appearance. However, many younger aged patients in their 20s and 30s are seeking out this cosmetic surgery as an option of the shape-altering procedure after seeing popular results on social media. In addition to lateral canthopexy, Epicanthoplasty surgery is also a popular surgery. While the former one is for tightening the outer eye corner, Epicanthoplasty in our clinics is performed for enlarging the inner corner of the patient’s eye to open up eye appearance.


Who Is An Eligible Candidate For Canthopexy?

If the patient desires more lifted lower lids and is in good general health, then a canthopexy procedure might be the perfect choice for them. The patient should visit a clinic nearby to get started with a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon in India. Ideal candidates for canthopexy surgery are non-smokers having realistic expectations for their facial rejuvenation. The patient should ensure that they discuss their history related to eye-related problems like lesions or eye tumors if any.


Why Get Canthopexy?

Given the importance of physical appearance in today's times, eye surgery has become a popular treatment choice among people. Canthopexy can help people suffering and longing to improve their sagging aging skin beneath the eyes for a more uplifting younger appearance. Visit our clinics in India to discuss more the surgery can help everyone with what to expect and how the surgery is helpful for them. Following is a quick pros & cons of the canthopexy surgical procedure:



  • Canthopexy surgery can make the eyes of a patient appear bigger and brighter. Often, creating a cat-eye kind of shape is widely considered to be more attractive.
  • Canthopexy surgery can correct the various signs and effects of aging, including sagging and excess skin of the eyes. Also, it can improve conditions, such as outwardly turning eyelids or chronic dry eyes.
  • More youthful eye contours of the eyes complement the whole appearance. More confidence and clarity enhance the eye's functions.
  • Eyelids can sit comfortably while cradling the eye giving more comfort to the eyes. Thus resulting in less eye redness as well as dryness in the eyes.



  • The patient would need to take a rest for a while after the surgery.
  • Recovery time can vary between two to four weeks. Therefore, patients are asked to take some time off work to stay home and rest.
  • Reversing a canthopexy procedure can be difficult because the surgery permanently alters the shape of the eye.
  • Unwanted or asymmetrical results of the surgery may be hard to reverse back to earlier conditions.
  • Some surgeons do not recommend canthopexy for cosmetic reasons alone.


What Happens During The Canthopexy Surgery Procedure?

Canthopexy surgery is done under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia by our expert cosmetic surgeons with some form of sedation at our clinics in Mumbai. Once the patient is fully asleep or sedated, our top surgeon will make incisions near the corners of his/her eyes. Then the cosmetic surgeon would lift, tighten, and reposition the lower eyelid. The doctor adjusts the lateral canthal angle to secure it to the orbital rim with clean sutures.


Our celebrity cosmetic surgeons are experienced in canthopexy surgery in India to give the eye a larger and attractive appearance. A canthopexy can be done along with another eye-related cosmetic surgery like blepharoplasty since the incisions for both procedures are of the same location.


How To Prepare For The Surgery?

During patient’s comprehensive consultation at our clinics in Mumbai, they would get an extensively detailed information letter to prepare for the scheduled canthopexy surgery procedure. These detailed directions would be customized based on individual situations of the patient as per the consultation at The Esthetic Clinics. In general, patients are instructed to stop certain prescription medications that might be thinning the blood. Adequate blood circulation is crucial for any surgical procedure, especially for eye surgeries.


Here are some common things to keep in mind before the surgery:

  • The patient should avoid putting makeup products on, on the day of their canthopexy procedure.
  • The patient should have a dedicated caregiver appointed before the eyelid surgery.
  • The patient would have to take care of their eyes for any sensitive situation for the first week of the surgery.
  • The patient would have to make sure to not put any strain on driving or do any other activity that might affect the eyes.


Eyelid surgery like canthopexy surgery in India can refresh the most prominent facial features by eliminating sag and amplifying sharper youthfulness of the eyes. To give the eyes of the patient the perfect frame, a patient can consider the benefits of other treatments like fillers, etc. Fillers like Botox are neuromodulator, that disrupts the repetitive flexing of the fine muscles along the skin. Using fillers can ease tension in the brow, specifically, neuromodulators can release glabellar lines around the eyes to smooth out the upper facial features. The patient can choose to get two or more related treatments together to get more benefit in a shorter recovery time.


What To Expect During Canthopexy Recovery?

Canthopexy recovery time is very minimal, but the patient would need to take some time before getting back to their daily chores and routine. Patients are asked to take at least two to four weeks off from their work, depending on how the surgery is done and how the body recovers and heals. The patient’s vision might become compromised for the first week after the surgery before the sutures are removed. The patient might need to wear a protective dressing as per the cosmetic surgeon’s advice covering a portion of the eye area that’s swollen or bruised.


Expect some swelling and bruising to last for up to two weeks. Patients won’t be able to wear contact lenses until fully recovered. The patient should avoid straining eyes or doing anything which might cause the eyes to become dry. The patient should refrain from including watching screens or reading smaller fonts and print. Our team at The Esthetic Clinics would make sure the patient is aware of what they should do or not do after the surgery.


Recovery & Aftercare

Since canthopexy surgery is a precise and focused surgery, the process is known for having shorter downtimes. Canthopexy has a shorter recovery time than other similar eye treatments. Patients are further encouraged to speed up the process by icing the treatment area and ease any discomfort. Our surgeon at The Esthetic Clinics may also write some pain management medication to help with the pain. Our surgeon would explain suitable cleansers for the patient’s face for the aftercare of the canthopexy surgery treatment.


The patient should not overexert for a few weeks after their eye surgery. Rubbing the site or even light scratching the treatment site should be avoided. The skin around the eyes is extremely sensitive and needs ample time to get better and heal completely.


The patient might have to hold their canthopexy treatment if they have an active eye infection in the same area. The Esthetic Clinics in India can determine your eligibility for canthopexy during your comprehensive consultation. If canthopexy is the best approach to elevating a patient’s droopy sagging eyelids, then Dr. Debraj Shome of The Esthetic Clinics would explain the procedure, step by step.
