How is a Fox Eye Lift (Canthoplasty) Operation Performed?

Today, with the development of different surgical techniques in the field of plastic and aesthetic surgery, interventions intended to reshape the eyes have become among the most popular aesthetic procedures.  Fox eye lift can be performed with a surgical or non-surgical intervention, depending on the anatomical structure of the patient’s eye.

The surgical fox eye lift procedure is performed under local anesthesia to anesthetize the surgical site. No pain is felt during the operation. The procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes.
