Love & Hip Hop star Erica Mena stepped out this weekend, and she was almost unrecognizable, Media Take Out has learned. And folks all across social media are speculating that the reality show beauty recently got the popular “fox eye” surgery – to change her looks.
Erica Mena stepped out on stage at the 2022 Ultimate Women’s Expo Atlanta at Cobb Galleria Centre, for the first time in a while, and her face looked noticeably different, especially her eyes.
So what is this “fox eye” surgery that so many women are getting these days – well Media Take Out did a bit of research
A canthoplasty, also known as cat-eye, fox-eye, or almond-eye procedure, is plastic surgery that lifts and repositions the corner of the eye (lateral canthus). It can correct drooping lower eyelids or reshape eyes that are more round than almond-shaped. This surgery falls under the category of blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift.
