What is a fox eye lift?
A fox eye lift, also known as a cat eye lift or a thread lift, is a cosmetic procedure that lifts the outer corners of the eyes to create a more youthful and lifted appearance.
The best candidate for a fox eye lift is someone who:
Has sagging or drooping of the outer corners of the eyes
The procedure is designed to lift and tighten the skin and tissues in this area, so individuals with excess skin or drooping of the upper eyelid are good candidates.
Is in good overall health
As with any surgical procedure, good general health is important to ensure a safe and successful outcome.
Has realistic expectations
It’s important to have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. A fox eye lift can create a subtle but noticeable improvement in the appearance of the eyes, but it will not completely transform your appearance.
Has adequate skin elasticity
The success of a fox eye lift depends on the skin’s ability to heal and maintain its new position. Individuals with good skin elasticity are better candidates for the procedure. Excessive skin laxity can cause the actual shape of the eye to be affected.
Has a stable weight
Significant weight fluctuations can change your facial features and affect the results of a fox eye lift, so it’s important to be at a stable weight before undergoing the procedure.
What are the risks of the Fox eye lift medical procedure?
Like any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications associated with a fox eye lift.
These can include infection, minor swelling and bruising, nerve injury, eye injury, hematoma, scarring, and unsatisfactory results. It's important to discuss the potential risks and complications with your plastic surgeon before undergoing the procedure.
Any surgical procedure carries a risk of infection, which can be treated with antibiotics.
2. Swelling and bruising
Swelling and bruising are common after a fox eye lift and can take several weeks to resolve.
A hematoma is a collection of blood under the skin, which can occur as a result of the surgery. Since the fox eye lift is a surgery that is done around the eye, there are always small chances of hematoma.
4. Nerve injury
The nerves around the eye area can be damaged during the procedure, which can cause temporary or permanent numbness or weakness in the facial muscles. This can affect facial mobility, or facial expressions.
5. Eye injury
In rare cases, the procedure can cause damage to the eye itself, which can result in vision problems or other complications.
Scarring can occur as a result of the incisions made during the procedure, although the scars are typically small and well-hidden.
7. Unsatisfactory results
While most patients are happy with the results of a fox eye lift, there is a risk of unsatisfactory results or asymmetry after the eye procedure. While almond eyes are a fashionable trend, it is important to know that results can vary from person to person. While this risk is the most common one, you should also know that by choosing an experienced and good surgeon this risk will significantly decrease.

What is the recovery period for a fox eye lift surgery?
After a fox eye lift, you can expect to experience some minimum swelling and bruising around the eyes, which can take several weeks to fully resolve. You may also experience some discomfort or tightness in the eye area, but this can usually be managed with pain medication. However, the recovery time for fox eye surgery depends upon which procedure you choose. Temporal lifts have no recovery period, and you are free to return to your normal routine and your normal activities. You will, however, have to wait a day or two to resume using eye makeup. Invasive surgery can take a little bit more than a week of recovery.
If you have more questions about recovery time, you can discuss it during your initial consultation, Dr. Saman will answer all your questions.

What is the difference between fox eye lift and upper blepharoplasty?
A fox eye lift and upper blepharoplasty are both cosmetic procedures designed to enhance the appearance of the eyes, but they target different areas of the eye and use different techniques to achieve their results.
- A fox eye lift, also known as a cat eye lift or a thread lift procedure, is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the skin and tissues around the outer corners of the eyes. This creates a more youthful and lifted appearance and can help to correct sagging or drooping around the outer corners of the eyes. The procedure typically involves making small incisions around the outer corners of the eyes and using special threads to lift and tighten the skin and tissues in the area.
- Blepharoplasty, on the other hand, is a more invasive eyelid surgery where the surgical procedure that targets the eyelids themselves. It can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, and involves removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelids to create a more refreshed and youthful appearance. The procedure typically involves making incisions in the natural creases of the eyelids and removing excess tissue before suturing the incisions closed.
How long does a Fox eye lift last?
The lifting effect of the threads used in the procedure typically lasts between 6-9 months, and the longevity of the results can be influenced by factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and alcohol consumption. Some patients may opt for touch-up procedures to maintain the results of their fox eye lift over time, while others may choose to explore other treatment options to address sagging or drooping around the eyes as they age.
Are there non invasive alternatives to surgery for fox eye surgery?
There are several non-invasive options available for individuals who are interested in achieving a foxy eye without undergoing cosmetic surgery. Some of these options include:
Fox eye Thread lift
This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses special threads to lift and tighten the skin around the outer corners of the eyes. It can provide a subtle but noticeable lifting effect that can help to create a more youthful and lifted appearance. There are different kind of thread that can be used like barbed threads, dissolvable threads, PDO threads or more.
Injectable fillers can be used to add volume and lift to the cheeks and temples, which can help to create a more pronounced brow and elongated eye shape. Fillers can also be used to correct under-eye hollows and other signs of aging around the eyes.
Botox injections can be used to temporarily relax the muscles around the outer corners of the eyes, which can help to create a more lifted and elongated eye shape. This treatment is often referred to as a “chemical brow lift.”
Can I lose my hair after a lateral brow lift?
Hair loss after a lateral brow lift is a rare complication, but it can occur in some cases. During a lateral brow lift, the surgeon makes incisions in the scalp and lifts the skin and tissues in the scalp area. This can potentially damage hair follicles, especially if the incisions are made too close to the hairline or if the patient has preexisting hair loss or a family medical history of hair loss.
