How to have an Almond Eye or Fox Eye without surgery
People with a classic almond eye (which is also known as doe eyes) have a natural upward lift to the outer corner of their eye. The lift of the lower eyelid makes it appear longer than the upper eyelid and also allows the eye to look larger, more shaped and more open.
What treatment does this look entail?
To achieve this look botulinum toxin is injected into the orbicularis oculi muscle to create a widening of the eye which gives a more oval or almond shape to the lower eyelid. The tail of the outer eye will also go upwards following this treatment. This allows the frontalis muscle to lift the outer brow giving a subtle upturned look. In addition to the botulinum toxin injection, dermal filler can be injected in the area around the eye to provide support and strength to the skin below the outer eyelid resulting in a fresh, less tired look with greater uplift of the lower eyelid.
