Canthopexy surgery

The upper and lower eyelids controls the shape of the eye. The surgery that can fix eyelids which sag due to sun damage, prior eyelid surgery, aging, or paralysis is referred as Canthopexy(Tarsorrhaphy). It is also called as Lower eyelid suspension surgery. The surgery will tighten and raise the lower eyelids.  To strengthen the lower eyelid and  the tissues to the outer corner of the eye (canthus parallel) is the main aim of this lower eyelid surgery. The space between framing the upper and lower eyelids is called as the palpebral slit. General anaesthesia is given for Canthopexy treatment. The treatment can remove the under eye bags, refresh, and rejuvenate the face of the patient. Cosmetic canthoplasty is the term used for cosmetic surgery for the upper eyelids which is also called as blepharoplasty. It removes the fatty tissues in the lower lids and excess skin under the eye. The main goal of  canthopexy treatment is to create a younger look and attractive appearance.
