EPICANTHOPLASTY

Along with the single upper eyelid, the epicanthal fold is a defining characteristic of East Asians. It is a fold of skin which covers the inner corner of the eye, leading to a sharp narrow angle which gives the eye a “slit like” appearance.  Although it is almost universally present in Asian people, the degree of severity will vary significantly between individuals.
