“Almond Eye” Surgery

So-called “almond-eye” surgery is a form of canthoplasty/canthopexy done to the outer part of your eyelid.

Many people perceive young and beautiful eyes as ones where the outer corner of the eye is 2 mm higher than the inner corner – i.e. slanted.

If you suffer from lateral angulation facing down or rounded eyes due to aging or structural collapses, we can treat them with surgery. We accomplish this either by repositioning your lateral canthal tendon upward with sutures (canthopexy), or by cutting and adapting your outer eye corners to make it them appear higher, and thus more attractive. The result: more horizontal, more esthetic eyes.

The surgery can be conducted in two forms: either 1 cm incision on the lateral intersection of your eye, or combined with lower or upper eyelid blepharoplasty. We can also give you almond-shaped eyes (also known as fox, bella, or cat eyes) via endoscopic method – a new and popular treatment method.

    I Always Tell My Patients: “Don’t Follow Trends Or Fads – As They’re All Temporary. Be Beautiful And Unique In A Way That’s Timeless.”


    Anyone over age 18 (male or female) can apply this surgery. Dr. Ozsular will examine you to approve whether or not the surgery is suitable for your eyes.

    During your pre-operative examination, Dr. Ozsular will first listens to your expectations and complaints. Next, he’ll examine you based on your skin structure, age, the structure of eyes and eyebrows, and facial structure, and then plan best surgery for you based on your expectations. Then, he’ll use photos and videos to show you what your eyes might look like.

    If Dr. Ozsular sends you for testing during the examination, you’ll need to follow up on his orders and share the test results. Dr. Ozsular may tell you to use or temporarily stop using certain medications – in which case you should do so. Try to reduce how much salt you consume as well about one week before the surgery. This will reduce your risk of developing edema and swelling after the surgery.

    If you use aspirin or any anticoagulants, you must cease using them one week beforehand by consulting to your doctor.

    It depends on the procedure. It is done under local anesthesia (for which you won’t need to fast before the surgery) or under general anesthesia (in which case you’ll need to follow general anesthesia rules).

    You should come to the hospital about half an hour before the surgery. You’ll be taken to your room to rest, upon which Dr. Ozsular and his assistant will come and visit you. Don’t wear make-up, and be sure to remove all accessories that could hamper the surgery (e.g. fake eyelashes, piercings…). Your face will be washed and sterilized, and then local anesthetics will be injected into you on several points. Once numbness begins, the doctor will begin work on you. You won’t feel any pain.

    The surgery should take no more than an hour. Afterwards, your dressings will be applied and you’ll be sent to your room to rest.

    You’re allowed to eat as well as drink water until 00:00 (12 AM) the night before your surgery. Since the surgery will be conducted with general anesthesia, you will need to fast for at least six hours prior to the procedure. (If you forget to do so, your surgery may be postponed or canceled.)

    You should take a warm shower before going to bed the night before the surgery, and do not put on any make-up before you come.

    Don’t wear nail polish or enamel.

    Don’t wear wigs. Don’t wear any jewelry (including piercings) – your body should be free of metal.

    On the morning of the surgery, you will be taken to your room to rest. Your final preparations for the surgery will be conducted. Dr. Ozsular and his assistant will come and visit you.

    The doctor will begin working on you as soon as you’re placed under general anesthesia.

    At the end of the surgery, your dressings and local anesthesia are applied and you are slowly awakened.

    You do not feel any pain since you’ll still be under the effects of local anesthetic for the first few hours after the surgery. Afterwards, oral analgesics will be sufficient. You’ll be able to eat 1 to 2 hours after the surgery – albeit light. You won’t need to stay overnight. You can return home when you feel well.

    You will develop slight edema, swelling, and ecchymosis around your eyes after the surgery – this is normal and temporary. It will subside 3 to 5 days after the surgery. Your new eye shape will should stabilize 2 weeks after the surgery. Enjoy! They’ll look younger and literally “eye-catching!”

    When you sleep, do so lying flat for the first 5 days.

    We will prescribe you eye-drops and gels to prevent your eyes from drying out.

    After the surgery, you’ll need to wear sunglasses when going out. You’ll also need to put sunscreen on around your eyes after your wounds have healed.

    Don’t rub your eyes too hard for the first 3 weeks.

    You should be able to do pilates again, stretch, and return your normal routine about 3 weeks after the surgery.

    Your eyes may not close completely for the first 2 to 3 weeks. This is normal and depends on some operation techniques; the surgeon may have even done this surgery intentionally. This will go eventually cease, and you’ll be able to close your eyes normally again. During this period, you should use gel to keep your eyes moist.

    After surgery, your suture scars will fade into your skin tone – no one will even notice them whether you wear make-up or not.

    Yes, it is. That said, your appearance may change slightly as you age – you are an organic and ever-changing being after all. Should this be the case, we may be able to repeat the procedure on you later on.

    Approximately 1 hour. If any additional procedure is planned, that duration may prolong.

    Almond eye surgery aims to reposition the outer corner of your eye upwards and make it appear more slanted, and your eyes younger and more attractive.

    Upper eyelid blepharoplasty, on the other hand, removes excess skin on your upper eyelid to refresh, illuminate, and give youth to your eyes.

    If the outer corner of your eyes droop down and your upper eyelids have sagging and excess skin, then yes they can – and with amazing results!
