lower bleph to get more sclera show?
I want to undergo a lower bleph procedure so I will have a bit more sclera showing at the outer corners of my eyes, thus lowering my eyes and making them less almond-shaped. my goal is to have larger, rounder eyes. i have good skin and i am young. does this sound like a good idea?

What you are describing is NOT usually a good idea, especially if done aggressively or incorrectly. Perhaps upper lid lifting (ptosis surgery) may be appropriate to open your eyes more if you are a good candidate. A photo (and exam) would be useful. Consult an oculoplastic surgeon.

Both previous posting experts are correct. Not a very thought out idea and photos help. Better yet in person evaluations from boarded PSs in your area.

Not a good idea.
Almond eye shape is desirable
Post pictures, and have a consult in person with a reputable plastic surgeon
