Foxy Eyes: lifting in the temporal zone and the zone around the eyes

Nowadays, when it is possible to change almost every aspect from our appearance, one new procedure has gained popularity – “foxy eyes” or “cat eyes”. The individual who can be “blamed” for this procedure is said to be the 24-year-old Bella Hadid (, who was chosen to be the “model of the year” last year by specialists from the industry by the prestigious magazine The almond eyes, to which she successfully draws attention with makeup, have become her trademark and gained popularity under the name foxy eyes. Very few women are born which this eye shape, and many say that even Bella Hadid isn’t one of them. Luckily, there are many successfully developed techniques for achieving this look. All of them aim to physically or visually lift the outer edge of the upper eyelid and slightly pull them towards the temporal zone.

Here is everything you should know about the Foxy Eyes procedure

Before you start, you must determine whether this fashion trend is suitable for you. Every face has its own unique characteristics and variances. It is possible that the lifted foxy eyes look won’t suit every face, and it may even worsen somebody’s appearance.
The corrections in the zones around the eyes – “brow lifting” and blepharoplasty (correction of the eyelids) can be achieved using invasive (surgical) and non-invasive (voltaic plasma, lifting threads, or injecting botox or fillers) methods.

Surgical blepharoplasty

Surgical blepharoplasty is done by a plastic surgeon, in a sterile surgical suite, under general or local anesthesia. During the surgery the excess skin or fat tissue is removed from the eyelids, aiming to correct the shape of the eyes and achieve an anti-aging effect. The recovery period is relatively long – from 7 to 14 days. The procedure is suitable for patients of more mature age or patients who have fatty tissue in the zone of the eyelids. The achieved result is permanent, which is why it is very important to be wary of such interventions when trying to achieve a trendy effect. The risks of complications from surgical blepharoplasty are the same as the risks of any surgical intervention, including the risk of achieving an unexpected and permanent result.

Foxy Eyes with lifting threads

Foxy Eyes using lifting threads. The procedure is non-surgical and is done by a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, with a local injectable anesthesia. The eyebrows and the outer edge of the eyes are repositioned using lifting threads. The result is visible immediately and can be corrected during the procedure. The effects last for up to 2 years, or until the threads are fully reabsorbed by the body. The recovery period is 2-3 days, but the patient must sleep only on their back for a minimum of 7 nights after the procedure, so that the threads don’t shift and move around, which is what makes the risks of asymmetry and unwanted results exceptionally high. Other possible side effects are allergic reactions, swelling, pain and erythema in the treated zone.

Lifting in the temporal zone and the zone around the eyes using fillers and botox

Lifting in the temporal zone and the zone around the eyes Foxy Eyes using fillers and botox. The procedure is short, non-invasive, done by a dermatologist, and not requiring anesthesia. Botulinum toxin is injected first, in cases when it is needed, which decreases the contraction of the muscles, lifts the eyebrows and minimizes the appearance of the wrinkles in the zone of the forehead and around the eyes. Suitable hyaluronic fillers are then injected in the temporal zone and the lateral edge of the eyebrows, thus creating an almond shape of the eyes. The recovery period is only up to a few hours. The result after injecting the fillers is immediate, lasts for up to 2 years, and can be corrected if necessary.
