Depending on the ethnicity, almond eyes are considered more beautiful and attractive and youthful. Almond Eye Surgery creates slightly higher lateral canthus with the lower eyelids sitting just at the lower border of the iris without any scleral showing. In other words, the outer corner of the eye and colored part of the eyeball have white showing under the iris.
Many people are blessed with naturally inherited almond eye shape. Although, that is not to say, non-almond eyes cannot be beautiful. There are a variety of other factors that make eyes beautiful and ethnic variations exist. Surgical improvement may be possible for patients in Beverly Hills who have rounded outer canthus and/or lower eyelids that are rounded and rest too low with sclera show (either inherited or as result of prior surgery “post-blepharoplasty eyelid malposition”).
