The Fox Eye

by | Apr 3, 2022 | Blog, Facelift

Culturally inappropriate and racially insensitive … yes, these are some of the terms ascribed to “Fox Eyes” – one of the latest Facial Plastic Surgery trends.

What is a Fox eye?

The newest trend on the block within the aesthetics world – a look described as the ‘fox eye’, ‘cat eye’ or ‘designer eye’ involves a cosmetic treatment which simultaneously lifts and elongates the upper eyelid, pulling the eye into a more almond shape, creating overall emphasis on the eyes. (Fox eyes aim for almond eyes by using a straighter wing, while cat eyes curve up to create a rounded effect. Additionally, fox eyes are characterised by the outer corner wing and the inner corner wing, while cat eyes are just the outer portion).

Some surgeons utilise threads to help attain this look.

I can’t get on board …

  • Just because it’s ‘on trend’ doesn’t mean it’s for you.
  • As well as cultural appropriation issues, risks need to be fully assessed.
  • Tailored results are best, always.
  • Consider the long-term ramifications. How will this look in five years, as the rest of your face ages?

Eyes are so important.

Where do we begin?

Understanding their aesthetic and connective relevance, let’s explore how to best see your eyes!

Taking an approach like Fox Eyes, just because it’s ‘on trend’, doesn’t make sense to me. My patients are individuals. Revealing their unique beauty is about tailoring the best treatments available to enhance their features.

Your Eyes

Facial features, including your eyes and the areas around them, change with time.

Your eyebrows may become heavier and there may be looser skin around the eyes. These changes are often why people consult with me or others who are experienced in Facial Plastic Surgery procedures.

When your eyelids and eyebrows droop due to excessive skin, people may ask if you’re tired when you’re not.

In a consultation, get down to the details… when you consult with me, we look at your concerns, and assess with reference to your overall facial harmony. I listen to what matters to you and advise on what can be done.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks that you should discuss in detail with your surgeon. (It is a something we always run through in our consultations).

  1. Brow Lift; ten days before and after
  2. Brow Lift: five weeks before and after
  3. Brow Lift and Blepharoplasty: eight months before and after

Each of these procedures has involved individual assessment – no “cookie cut” approaches here.
