I couldn't have chosen a better clinic. The fact it was 65% cheaper than the prices I'd been quoted the in UK and the extra help they provide is just incredible. My surgery went perfectly and they removed 10lbs of skin from my stomach and waist. I had everything I needed in my hospital room and the nurses are so attentive, kind and available 24 hours a day.

Before and after surgery I felt like I was very well taken care of! The nurses were very compassionate, and made sure I had what I needed - and that it went well! I don't think I've experienced that it's so good in Norwegian hospitals even..I will definitely recommend the clinic further, if anyone is considering it, but is insecure.

These people went above and beyond, soooo much more polite than UK surgeons, these people actually care about how you are, check up on you and answer all the questions you have. After check up a week later, my surgeon carried my luggage to my taxi. Fussy in ways you'll never know and if ever the need for surgery again, I'll go there. Anyone I know, I'll recommend over any others I've heard of.

I had Dr Tautvydas who did a mommy makeover on me two weeks ago. I can't describe in words how happy I am now! I felt so calm and safe when I met him and he radiated safety and warmth!Then looking at the clinic was just as good. the nurses were absolutely wonderful and kind and made me feel safe. My results so far are fantastic and the scars are healing nicely. I can really say with all my heart that I can recomend this clinic but also Dr. Tautvydas!

Surgery went good and I was so happy with my stay at the clinic with extremely helpful and friendly nurses caring for me 24/7. The clinic was so fresh and I was served delicious meals. Another bonus was their transportation team who picked me up/dropped me off at the airport, back and forth from the hotel to the clinic etc. It was great not having to worry about any logistics, since it was all taken care of.

What is Canthoplasty?

As aging process progresses, eyelids tend to gradually develop laxity, giving ones face a tired and sad look. Minor lower eyelid droopiness becomes an issue when a lateral canthal tendon loses its firmness, resulting in a descent of a lateral canthus (a lateral corner where both eyelids meet), and slowly progresses into an inferior migration of the lower eyelid. It is worth noting that malposition of both upper and lower eyelids may not only affect one’s appearance, but it also has a significant impact on the overall eye health, as the eyelids work like constantly moving curtains that protect a very fragile eyeball. Moreover, both eyelids are responsible for covering the surface of an eye in a salty liquid that is produced in the lower eyelid tear meniscus for optimal vision to be enabled. Any interruption to the normal function and structure of the eyelids may have adverse impact on the symmetry of ones face and potentially result in ophthalmic pathology.

Canthoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure which help restore natural anatomy of either medial or lateral canthus, and improve both vision and function of the eyelids.

Lateral canthoplasty is performed through either a small upper eyelid crease incision or a limited lateral incision for a lateral canthal tendon to be reached. The main aim of this procedure is to restore natural position of the lower eyelid and lateral canthus by tightening the tendon and removing excess tissue of the lower eyelid.

As for medial canthoplasty, it is an analogous procedure which is more often recommended for people with mostly inborn medical conditions that resulted in formation of an abnormal medial canthus which may impede ones vision.

Who is a proper candidate for canthoplasty?

Canthoplasty is a relatively safe and simple procedure which is usually performed under regional anesthesia. For this reason there are no strict regulations regarding a candidate’s anatomic properties, such as BMI etc.

  • However, it is worth keeping in mind that the presence of chronic diseases, history of certain drug usage, such as immunosuppressants, obesity and its multiple comorbidities are associated with higher risk of perioperative complications and post-op infection which may impair the healing process;
  • Moreover, a potential patient must be aware of all possible long-term outcomes of the procedure and understand that positive changes after canthoplasty may not be permanent as the skin continues to lose its laxity over time;
  • On the whole, in order to determine whether a candidate is eligible for canthoplasty, the structure and anatomy of a patient’s eyelids and the overall state of health should be evaluated by a qualified plastic surgeon.

What are the results of this procedure? What to expect?

Lateral canthoplasty makes the eyes appear larger and brighter, as during the procedure the lateral canthus is lengthened and the simultaneously raised outer tail of the eyes is corrected. The results are usually long-lasting and very little or no significant changes (slight droopiness, wrinkles etc.) in the region around the eyelids are observed. It is worth mentioning that the necessary incisions in the upper lid are tiny and do not leave any visible scars.

Preparation for canthoplasty

When preparing for canthoplasty, no major changes in one’s diet or everyday life are required. However, there are some tips that should be taken into account for recovery to be fast and smooth:

Practice healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly, having your diet balanced and staying hydrated will strengthen your body and immune system.

Avoid using tobacco products and consuming alcohol before the procedure for as long as possible. Chemical compound inhaled with smoke contribute to clot forming processes inside the blood stream, which deteriorate tissue perfusion with oxygen.

In order to prevent perioperative complications, taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and other blood thinners should be avoided before the procedure, unless the operating doctor has advised differently.

Consult a plastic surgeon about your allergies, previous surgeries and daily medications. If you have any pre-existing conditions that require daily usage of drugs, your operating doctor should be informed about it. Follow your specific pre-operative instructions as they may vary depending on your personal medical history.

Recovery after canthoplasty

It is absolutely normal to feel pain for up to 4 weeks after the procedure. It should be managed with prescribed medication depending on the pain intensity.

The stitches are removed 5 to 7 days after surgery. While the incision lines may appear red for about 2 to 3 months, with time they blend in with the surrounding skin colour and become no longer noticeable.

Within 1 month after surgery the swelling entirely fades. Canthus swelling and bloodshot eyes, if present, usually disappear within 3 weeks.

After the surgery oral antibiotics and ophthalmic ointment, as well as three kinds of eye drops (antibiotics, steroids, and artificial tears) are often prescribed. Steroid eye drops should only be used for a short period of time when the swelling is present.

It is very important not to open or rub the wound. While the patients may wash their face or take a light shower after removing the stitches, it is worth waiting for 3 weeks before going to a sauna or swimming pool and wearing contact lenses.

Patients are strongly discouraged from consuming alcohol and using tobacco products, especially while taking any kind of prescribed medication after the surgery, for they may provoke some toxic side effects and complications could develop.

What are the possible risks?

Although it is a safe and simple procedure, canthoplasty as all the procedures related to eyes and their surrounding tissues is associated with some possible side effects, though very rarely observed. Complications that result in loss of vision are extremely rare and have not been observed in patients after canthoplasty worldwide. However, there are some possible short-term changes associated with surgical alterations in eyelid and canthus anatomy, such as dry, irritated eyes, eyelid closing problems, injury to the eye muscles, skin discoloration etc., which tend to disappear with time. All in all, it has been widely noted that the benefits of canthoplasty most certainly outweigh the risks.

When canthoplasty is recommended in combination with other surgeries?

Depending on how droopy the skin of the eyelids is, canthoplasty may be performed together with upper eyelid blepharoplasty, lower eyelid blepharoplasty and lower eyelid retractor reinsertion. When combined these procedures significantly rejuvenate the face and may even improve vision.
