Double eyelid operation is one of the most common aesthetic surgical procedure performed in Korea. In correlation with the cultural background and social changes, most patients prefer a nonincision method rather than an incision method at the present. Forty-two consecutive patients were operated on for creation of double eyelids, with the subconjunctival buried suture method through conjunctival approach, from June of 1999 to September of 2000. The choice of procedure was based on the age of the patient and the amount of subcutaneous fat and redundant skin. This method was especially advisable if the young patient wants not to leave any visible scar and rapid recovery. The follow-up period ranged from two months to one year. Of forty-two patients undergoing this procedure, three patients(7.1%) required reoperation because of asymmetry, disappearance of fold, and irrtation respectively. This method is similar to various ordinary nonincisional methods previously described except for subconjunctival buried suture. But authors could obtain better cosmetic result with the advantage of shorter operation time, less morbidity, no scarring, and natural look earlier in the appropriate candidates.
