A common trend among Instagram filters and our patients is the “fox eye look,” which is the plastic surgery trend that has taken millennials by storm.
The fox eye look can be seen on models such as Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, and Elsa Hosk, and none of these people were actually born with this interesting and sexy feature. Photos of the 3 girls early in their modeling careers show their eyes are much more hooded and less slanted than they are now.
The “pulled back” eye look is a natural feature for some people, particularly those of Asian descent, but many are achieving it with a blepharoplasty procedure.
Blepharoplasty is a surgery done to remove excess skin or fat that may cause drooping eyelids, and it can also be done to correct the shape of the eyes by strategically removing and pulling back skin.
For the fox eye trend, the incision will likely be around your hairline near your temples. This surgery will be focused on your upper eyelid near the eyebrow. Once this area is pulled back, the excess skin is cut away and the scar is obscured by your hairline. Our office prides itself on minimal scarring that can be easily covered by makeup or hair.
This kind of brow surgery is permanent and is done on an outpatient basis. The facial plastic surgery experts of Westside Face can do this procedure quickly and relatively painlessly.
Before you go through with this procedure, the first step in the facial cosmetic surgery process is to go in for a consultation. During your consultation, it’s important to have an honest conversation with our doctors so that they pick the right surgery for your concerns. Our doctors will also make sure that your insecurities are being properly dealt with, as an Instagram trend isn’t always cause for undergoing a permanent cosmetic procedure.
