Double Eyelids Suture
It is very common for Oriental races (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) to have monolids (‘single eyelids’). This is simply a genetic characteristics of these races. Anatomically, this eyelid has an extra fold of skin called the epicanthus in addition to the low position where the eyelid skin is adherent to the underlying structures, combined, these features give the appearance of a ‘single’ eyelid.
Monolids makes the eyes look smaller, and less bright and alert. The eyelashes tend to be angled downwards and inwards and hence make them more invisible. When they start aging, skin laxity and puffiness tend to be more noticeable .Thus, eyelids without a crease tend to age earlier and faster. Double eyelids tend to make the eyes look bigger, brighter, and more youthful, with more visible eyelashes angled more upwards and outwards. All of this results in more attractive eyes. Therefore, it is a general truth that no matter how pretty your eyes may look without double eyelid creases, they will look nicer with the double eyelid crease.
Double Eyelid Suture is a popular noninvasive, non- incisional way of creating natural double eyelid crease by burying suture into the eyelid tissue. It is a fast, almost painless, minimal downtime, scarless procedure.
