NON-INCISIONAL TECHNIQUE TO CREATE DOUBLE EYELIDS
GAINS FAVOR AMONG ASIAN EYES PATIENTS
Study Published in ASAPS Peer-reviewed Journal
New York, NY (July 10, 2001) - An improved non-incisional technique to create double eyelids in Asian eye patients is reported in the current issue of Aesthetic Surgery Journal (ASJ), the peer-reviewed publication of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
Asian eye surgery surgery is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in Japan. Whereas most surgeons in the United States perform cutting-type double eyelid surgery, Japanese women prefer non-incisional techniques. According to the authors of a study appearing in ASJ, current non-incisional techniques for creating double eyelids are either technically complex or do not produce lasting results.
Doctors describe an improved procedure that uses double sutures and twists (DST) to create double eyelids in Asian eye surgery patients. The doctor says the non-incisional procedure is simple, durable, and virtually scar free. As described in the article, the method uses only two sutures on each upper eyelid, with the durability explained by the areas of ties and the central twists that result in more secure and therefore longer-lasting results.
The authors performed 1108 cases using the DST method during the past ten years, with no loss of double eyelid line after follow-up periods ranging from one month to seven years (with a mean follow-up time of 32 months). The average operative time ranged from 20 minutes (one side) to 60 minutes (bilateral). Most patients did not require sedation, and the surgeries were performed with only local anesthesia. Complications were minor and rare.
The doctor says that the DST technique is unique and differs from previous procedures mainly because of its three distinctive areas of ties and the twisted sutures in the center that give additional strength to the line. According to the doctor, The DST method is a relatively simple and reproducible means of creating double eyelids in Asian patients.
