Fox Eyes Surgery (Brow Lift with Lateral Canthopexy) in Beverly Hills, CA

Fox Eyes - A legendary look

Since the days of Cleopatra, women have longed for sultry, almond-shaped eyes with elongated brows. Brow lift with lateral canthopexy, more commonly known as Fox Eye Surgery, is a surgical procedure that adds a sexy, upswept look to the outermost portion of the eyes. The Beverly Hills plastic surgeons at Plastic Surgery Institute are masters at artistically lifting and shaping the outer portion of the eyes and brows to create a beautiful cat eye shape that looks elegant and natural. Our highly experienced surgeons are specialists in eye revitalization, and therefore Fox Eye Surgery. With 40+ years of combined experience, they create lifted, youthful eyes that sparkle.

What is Fox Eye Surgery?

At Plastic Surgery Institute, achieving the Fox Eyes look entails two procedures in one surgery: a lateral canthopexy and a brow lift.

Canthopexy involves lifting the outer portion of the lower eyelid with sutures. This creates a refined “cat eye” look and improves the overall eye shape. Brow lifting is necessary so that the brows match the newly improved eye shape. As a bonus, raising the brows corrects heavy upper eyelids and smoothes forehead lines and crow’s feet around the eyes. After the procedure, the outer eyes and brows are harmoniously lifted and firmed, achieving the flirtatious, foxy eyes that have been made famous by some of Hollywood’s A-List starlets.

Benefits of Fox Eye Surgery

Droopy eye corners create an overall tired appearance. To open and lift the eyes, the surgeons at Plastic Surgery Institute use their experience and knowledge of facial anatomy to elevate the lateral portion of the eyes and brows.

It’s incredible what a small change to the eyes can do to give the entire face a fresh, rejuvenated appearance. This innovative eye-and-brow lifting procedure provides a dramatic lifting effect in less time than having the procedures done separately. Patients who undergo surgery have the added benefit of a single recovery period. For our patients in Beverly Hills Fox Eye Surgery recovery usually takes just one to two weeks.

The Fox Eye Surgery Procedure

During a Fox Eye Surgery Beverly Hills patients will receive a brow lift and lateral canthopexy simultaneously. First, they lift the outer corners of the lower lid by gently tightening the canthal tendon with sutures. Next, they elevate the forehead skin by performing a brow lift, eliminating periorbital and forehead wrinkles while elevating the brows to a higher position. The surgery takes approximately one to two hours.

Ideal Candidates for Fox Eye Surgery

Some individuals wear eyeliner to give their outer eyes an upturned look. The trouble is that makeup comes off at the end of the day, often revealing tired, downturned eyes. Likewise, no amount of makeup can lift sagging brows, drastically improve eye shape, or conceal forehead lines and crow’s feet.

There comes a time when clever makeup tricks can’t effectively hide brow sagging and downturned eyes. For patients who want a more taut, foxy eye shape, it may be time to consider the Fox Eyes surgery at Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills. Fox Eyes surgery has few contraindications. The ideal candidate is not pregnant, breastfeeding, or an active smoker. Certain medical conditions may preclude some individuals from having surgery. The doctors at Plastic Surgery Institute screen each patient during the consultation to ensure maximal safety and effectiveness of the procedure.

Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Chopra, Dr. Ordon, and Dr Villanueva

The Doctors at the Plastic Surgery Institute love what they do. If you want the highest quality of care from industry leaders who are as approachable as they are professional, you will find a perfect partner for your procedure at the Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills.

Fox Eyes Recovery

Recovering after the Fox Eyes surgery at Plastic Surgery Institute is generally swift and uneventful. It takes approximately one to two weeks to make a complete recovery. Mild swelling or bruising may occur. The doctors may advise sleeping with the head in an elevated position to minimize these effects.


After the Fox Eye surgery Beverly Hills patients will notice that their eyes appear beautifully lifted at the outermost corners. The brows take on a more taut and rejuvenated appearance while retaining a natural position on the forehead. Upper facial wrinkles, specifically crow’s feet and forehead lines, are all but eliminated. The results last for years, though your body will still age, so the wrinkles will return eventually.
