Abstract
Double eyelid operation is the most common cosmetic surgery in Asian. There are two procedures for the double eyelid operation: one is an incision method and the other is a suture(non- incision) method. The latter is classified into two categories: stitch method and buried suture method. The popular indications for the non-incision method are listed below (1) A dislike is shown for a procedure that may possibly leave conspicuous scars. (2) The relaxation of the skin and orbicular oculi muscle is not strong, and they retain some tension. (3) The deposition of subcutaneous fat is not very heavy. (4) A wide double eyelid line is not desired. (5) A weak double eyelid line is already present. So the plastic surgeon generally offer the incision method when the patient is older than the age of 35. But rarely aged woman wants the double eyelid operation by non-incision method because of short recovery time and less scar. From December 1999 to June 2003, we performed the double eyelid operation by non-incision method in 22 patients who are older than the age of 40 with selective indications. 16 patients (72.73%) were satisfied with their aesthetic results.
Key Words: Double eyelid operation, Middle aged women, Buried suture method
