Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Epicanthal or Asian Eyelid Fold Options

Q. Are there any non surgical procedures (like Botox) to contour my excess skin on inner eyelid?

A. Thanks for sharing your photos. The excess skin along the inner eye you speak of is called a epicanthal fold. It is seen in people of Asian descent. 

Botox will probably worsen its effect as the brows will ascent and lateralize, pulling the skin fold upward and to the outside. 

Epicathal fold surgery will “westernize” its appearance. Seek consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Oculoplastic Surgeon show performs many of these. Look at his / her before / after photos to see what the change looks like and if it fits your desires. 

Good luck with your journey!
