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

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.
