There are a number of reasons why you might opt for a Canthoplasty.  The surgery is carried out to correct drooping eyelids and you are unhappy with your eyelids, you may opt for this surgery. It is carried out either for medical or cosmetic use.

There is a condition called Ectropion, which is where the lower eyelid droops and forms a gap that gets very irritated and aggravates the eye. The condition varies from mild to severe and if it is causing a great deal of discomfort, a Canthoplasty can be used to correct it.  Your eyelid may also have drooped for a number of other reasons such as age, paralysis or injury to the eye and a Canthoplasty can help as it will stabilize the lower eyelid and change the appearance.

Canthoplasty is sometimes used in conjunction with Blepharoplasty because it can minimize the risks of having any complications from this type of surgery. Blepharoplasty is surgery on the upper and lower eyelids and a Canthoplasty can provide further support to this cosmetic surgery to ensure that the results are maintained.

Some people do not like the appearance of their eyes and a Canthoplasty can help create the rejuvenated appearance that they desire so a Canthoplasty may improve self-esteem. It is important to be realistic about your expectations and know that Canthoplasty will not remove the dark rings under your eyes unless they are the result of the drooping eyelid.

A Canthoplasty can also help protect the eye because if the eyelid has sagged, it is not providing the correct support for the eye. It is easier to get irritations to the eye because there is not the protection of the eyelid so by tightening the tendon, you can uplift the lower eyelid and provide that support. The surgery can also get rid of unwanted wrinkles, as excess skin will be removed during the operation.
