Abstract

Telecanthus, which is the lateral displacement of the medial canthus, can be a congenital deformity or can occur after facial trauma. Several epicanthoplasty methods have been described, but the orbitonasal angle and appropriate shape cannot be reconstructed in Asians. We solved this problem by using a dog-ear effect. This article describes a new design for epicanthoplasty and its results.
