I had DST eyelid surgery however, my lid no longer has a double fold. Can Dr. Steinsapir help me?

Published onJune 12, 2012

It is imperative that your surgery be individually designed and performed with the highest standards. DST eyelid surgery is a compromise surgery that is appealing because it promises a minimally invasive approach to creating a double fold. Unfortunately the results of this type of Asian eyelid surgery often do not hold up. If you are disappointed in a past procedure, consider how you might benefit from a new or reparative surgery. Like all specialized eyelid surgeries, you should pursue only the most skilled, expert, and personalized treatment in order to have surgery that uniquely addresses your issues and concerns. One size does not fix all.

A popular aesthetic goal today is to achieve a double eyelid fold, or crease on the upper eyelid. One approach is the DST eyelid surgery, which involves a “double sutures and twists” method which involves excising small strips of skin and threading a suture through the full thickness of the eyelid at the level needed to form a crease. While the simplicity of the surgery is appealing, when you’re investing in your personal appearance and health it rarely pays to take shortcuts. If your former DST surgery results are not lasting or do not seem to be a natural improvement to your own eyelid contour, help is available.
