What is Stitch Double Eyelid Plasty?

Some Asians have a loose connection between the upper eyelid crease and the underlying tarsal plate.

This loose connection can cause loss of double eyelids (monolid) or indistinct double eyelids.

By connecting the upper eyelid skin crease with the underlying tarsal plate, by using sutures, a distinct double eyelid can be created or reshaped. We call these stitches “Durable Sutures”.

What is a Durable Suture Technique?

Dr Peter Kim has developed a technique called Durable Suture Technique. This technique was published in 2012 in the Journal of Cosmetic Surgery & Medicine. It showcased our experience with over 350 consecutive patients treated with the Durable Suture Technique from 2008 to 2011. The technique was shown to be effective in creating or reshaping the double eyelids in Asians.

What are the complications?

Generally speaking, the complication is rare as it is a nonsurgical procedure. Complication rate is about 2%. One of the more common complications are asymmetry, sutures can open up requiring the insertion of another stitch, and suture granuloma.
