How to get the fox eye look

It is an open secret that many celebrities turn to plastic surgery in order to achieve the look they desire on the red carpet as well as on the big, and small, screen. There have been different cosmetic surgery trends and “in style” looks over the years that have gathered many celebrity fans and 2021 is no exception. Take a look below to learn more about the current “Fox Eye” trend and why it is so popular among celebrities.

Fox eye look explained“Fox Eye” Look Explained

In general, “Fox Eye” is a phrase that describes a look where the outer canthus (AKA the outer corner of the eye) is higher than the inner canthus (which is the name for the inner corner of the eye). The outer (lateral) eyebrow of the patient is lifted in order to give the eye a look that can best be described as an “almond shape”.

It should be noted that women have tried to achieve this look for many years. They often tweeze their eyebrows in order to microblade, or pencil in, the outer eyebrow in a narrow and high manner. They also use eyeliner to produce an upward sweep that goes to the corner of the eye.

As a person ages, the outer canthus droops and gains a look and shape that is lower than the inner canthus. Overall, the outer brow of the person will start to droop until the person has a visible amount of skin hanging on the upper eyelid. The “Fox Eye” is able to provide the eye with an appearance that is rejuvenated and lifted.

Celebrities with a “Fox Eye” Appearance – How They Gain the Look

Some of the celebrities that have been spotted with the “Fox Eye” look in public include Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Megan Fox.

The procedure can be performed in a medical office and can involve the use of filler or Botox or PDO (Polydioxanone) threads. In general, having the treatment in an office can take around 30-minutes to perform.

  • Botox is injected into the depressors of the eyebrow such as the orbicularis oculi, and the muscles in the glabellar complex, which allow the muscles to relax as well as raise the brow. This treatment works especially well at the outer brow and can eliminate or reduce the lines around the area known as the “crow’s feet”. The brow will be lifted in a way that provides a natural appearance. Since Botox is not a permanent solution, patients will need to have follow-up treatments to maintain the results after three to six months.
  • PDO threads are created using a special suture that contains small barbs. In general, PDO threads are also known as a “lifting thread”. The surgeon numbs the outer eyelid and outer eyebrow so the PDO threads can be placed in the targeted area. The skin lifts in an upward manner and the results will last anywhere from three to nine months. Follow-up treatments will be necessary to maintain the results.
  • Filler can be injected in the area above the eyebrow, or it can be injected at the lateral hairline in order to pull the lateral brow in an upward direction. Much like Botox, fillers do not provide permanent results so patients will need to have follow-up treatments to maintain the desired results. Overall, the results can last anywhere from six to eighteen months (depending on the filler used in the procedure).

Other surgical methods of altering the appearance of the eyebrows include:

  • A brow lift is when an incision is made inside the hairline. The eyebrows are then lifted with the sutures being located beneath the skin. The results of a brow lift are long lasting and can last five years (or more) after the surgery.
  • Canthopexy is a surgical tightening of the outer corner of the eye. In a lateral canthopexy, the outer corner of the eye (the lateral canthus) is moved in order to sweep the eye upward for a dramatic change in its appearance.
  • An upper eye lift, which is also known as an upper eyelid lift, is a procedure that is performed in order to remove excess skin and fat in the eyelids. The surgery also removes bags under the eyes and reduces the appearance of puffy eyelids. Incisions are made in the creases of the upper eyelids to remove excess fat that is blocking the vision of the patient and also causes the eyelids to have a droopy appearance.

Ideal Candidates for the “Fox Eye” Trend

The ideal candidate for this treatment is anyone that is in general good health. The flexibility of the skin and a “heavy face” might impact the ability of the doctor to achieve the desired results.

Anyone that is interested in gaining a “Fox Eye” look should consult with their doctor of choice so they can undergo a physical examination and also view photos of results from actual patients treated by the doctor. In addition, the patient might want to bring photos of their favorite celebrity so the doctor will have an “inspiration image’ to use when performing the procedure.
