One of the Many Suture Techniques for Double Eyelids

There are many different ways of doing suture techniques, the one shown here is one such method using three 6/0 nylon sutures.
Diagrams showing the placements of the sutures.

Steps in suture techniques:
a. 4 incisions are made on the eyelids.
b, c & d. A curved needle with 6/0nylon is passed full
thickness through one incised area and out through another;
e. The needle is then passed partial thickness through the skin
from the exit site to where the needle initially entered;
 f & g. The suture is tightned;
h. 2 more sutures are similar passed through the lids.
