can you undo canthopexy
Can you undo canthopexy? If so, how long do you need to wait post having surgery. Do the eyes go back to normal?

Canthopexy  January 1, 2013 1:07 PM

Canthopexy can be one of many types of procedures to tighten the lateral ligament of the eye lids mainly the lower lid.
Depending on the technique used where some will remove tissue and others do not remove any tissue. Sutures can be used only.
The technique is used frequently when doing lower lid blepheroplasty to prevent drooping of the power lid (Ectropion).
Some techniques are very difficult to reverse without creating major problems.
It is better to ask your surgeon who knows what technique was done and can give you a sound advise.
Be very carefull and get informed before doing any further surgery even by experts.

It may be possible but need photo and examination. It is best done within 7-10 days after surgery but problem with that is that there is swelling during this time and it is difficult to know how things would turn out if you waited out the healing period. If wait longer, then there is no hurry and can wait much longer as things have already scarred in place. See an oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation.
