Outer Corner Extension FAQ

Q1. How effective is outer corner extension 
in terms of size difference in eyes?

A1. The size will increase approximately 3~4 mm. 

The suitable distance for incision should be decided 
through precise consultation with medical team before surgery 
since the distance varies upon space 
between outer corner and canthus and severity of  exophthalmoses.

but left scar on skin due to lack of the techniques.

enhance the satisfaction of result and prevent recurrence.
