What is a Cat Eye Surgery?
A Cat Eye surgery, also known as Fox Eye Lift popularized by celebrities like Bella Hadid, is a procedure performed to achieve a desirable and sexy eye look.
You must pronounce in detail the exact shape and structure you want during your consultation with your surgeon.
To achieve that look, a small incision is made near the outer corner of the eyes, formally known as the canthus, and the tissue around the eyes is pulled upwards and/or outwards. Once the desired shape is created, the suspended tissue is fixed to the bone membrane. After the surgeon checks the final shape and the position of the eyes, the tissue is secured with sutures and the incision is closed.
Cat Eye surgery is elective and can be performed at a young age as long the patient has a suitable face and eye structure. Surgery is performed according to your preferences and under local anesthesia. The surgical technique lasts for 4 years on average, while the result you will attain with a thread lift typically lasts between 3 to 12 months.

Recovery After a Cat Eye Surgery
Canthoplasty is known to be a relatively less invasive procedure that does not require a lengthy recovery period. Most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work and daily life after about a week. Swelling, bruises, and some level of discomfort are expected and normal after every procedure, but things will go back to normal after 1-2 weeks. Be sure to follow the specific instruction your surgeon gives you to ensure a smooth and proper recovery, which help make the surgery outcome more satisfying.
As the Voila health care team, we will ensure that you have gone through all the necessary health checkups before your surgery, and always be there for you during recovery to ensure you feel your best the whole time.
Aftercare is as important as the surgery itself when it comes to boosting the effects of the procedure.
Quitting smoking and drinking during the healing process are recommended, as smoking and alcohol intake might slow down the healing and potentially affect the surgery results.
Make sure you keep yourself propped up with multiple pillows while lying down or sleeping.
Swelling is expected but it will start to go down after day 2 and 3, which are the most challenging. Just trust the process.
If necessary, your doctor may prescribe you painkillers.
Patience is key. A better you is on the way!
