BK Plastic Surgery Hospital
Inner Corner Reconstruction


In the past, eyelid surgery means that double eyelid crease is created only,
but nowadays, in order to make the most attractive and defined eyes,
inner or outer corner fold removal also can be applied along with double eyelid surgery.

Inner corner fold removal(epicanthoplasty) can cut away 
mongolian folds covering inner corner of eyes 
to create smooth and refined impression.   

But if redness of inner corner fold shows too much by cutting overly,
unpleasant impression can be brought to others.

Why would it be happened?

Because same surgical technique was applied to every patients

without consideration of individual condition.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome from inner corner fold removal,
consider to have inner corner reconstruction.

  1. i recently got non-incision type upper eyelid surgery which consists of 3 stitches. about how long til the swelling is gone and wht should i do to help it? thanks!

    1. It largely depends on personal condition, but in case of non-incisional double eyelid surgery, it usually takes about 1~2 weeks to subside major swelling.
      You should apply packs -ice & warm following the clinic's instruction which you got surgery- on surgical area frequently. Thank you!

  2. Hi,

    I did double eyelid and medial epicanthoplasty and the result of the eyes are uneven on the area near the corner.

    is it possible to fix them and make them more even?

    Thank you
