Tips for Choosing a Double Eyelid Surgery Technique

Tips for Choosing a Double Eyelid Surgery Technique

Video transcript: What allows me to decide which technique is best for a patient really depends on their physical exam.  Patients who have relatively thin skin wont have extra skin or fat are often good candidates for suture technique, whereas people with extra skin or extra fat are not good candidates for the suture technique and would require the incisional technique.

In a patient who might be a candidate for either then I think they have to take into consideration like recovery time and also the fact with suture techniques,  there is a slight risk the sutures may break and they will have to repeat the procedure.
