About complications

Complications can always occur in the treatment of plastic surgery, whether surgical or non-surgical.

As for laser equipment used in the field of aesthetic medicine, new models rooted in new technology are appearing every few years, partly due to the influence of rapid technological progress. For example, a tattoo that has been put into the body has been treated with a new model of pico laser in recent years. If the patient’s skin condition matches the characteristics of the device, I think it will bring great results. On the other hand, it may not work, in which case these new models can produce high energy, which can lead to the ugly consequences of large scars on the treated area, such as reddish-brown hypertrophic scars. Some patients who come to our hospital have recently received such treatment at another medical institution and have fallen into such a merger certificate and are sometimes asked to do something about it.

In addition, in the case of double eyelid surgery that does not cut, a very thick synthetic thread is exposed on the conjunctival surface, causing inflammation. I have encountered many cases where the problem was complicated by re-surgery, leaving the thread behind.

In addition, we sometimes see cases where an unlicensed subcutaneous injection is placed on the face, leaving lumps and bumps permanently in the face.

Returning to the description at the beginning, there are always potential complications in medical practice. In English, this is called Pros and Cons, and there is a system that explains to the patient before the procedure and then treats it.

If you are receiving treatment such as aesthetic medicine or plastic surgery at one of the medical institutions and are suffering from some complications, please feel free to contact us as we are also consulting.

About double eyelids (especially non-cutting method)

We have performed many cases of double eyelids that are non-cutting. As a feature, it uses a very fine special thread (same as that used for heart surgery) to fix one or three points to the firm structure called tarsal plate. This method is also generally called the buried suture method, but in our method, it is a “complete buried suture method”, and the thread is not exposed on the inner side of the conjunctiva of the eyelid.

The director of this clinic has a total of more than 1500 cases since he was in practice in the United States, and has used this method for various races other than Japanese. From our experience, this method is especially recommended for the younger generation who seek for double eyelids. This is because the incision method cannot be redone. With our three-point fixed burial method, less than 10% of cases will lose double lines in the future, which is about the same as the incision method.

We also use our method to treat eyelid slack in older patients, which can be corrected very effectively. The same method is used for Caucasian people, and it often results in a ntural finish than Asian people.

We also perform incision-based eyelid surgery, but unless there is a compelling reason to do so (very strong sagging, too much fat, ptosis, etc.), the non-incision method is used. And, we think it’s a good way.

About “slack of upper eyelids” and “double eyelid operation without cutting”

We see that there are more people advanced with sagging of the upper eyelids with age. There are various ways to improve the slack of the upper eyelids. Ultimately it may be necessary to remove extra skin and make it clearer. However, there are problems with the recovery period, so in many cases, people who choose methods that do not rely on cutting surgery are increasing. There is also lifting by laser, but we will write about double eyelids that will not cut today, sagging by our original DST method.

The DST method is a method of fixing three points using two special buried threads used for blood vessel suturing and the like. It has a strong anchoring force and is suitable for lifting up a drooping eyelid. Design for lift-up and treat with local anesthesia. Details of treatment are on the double eyelid’s page of this homepage, but since it is not an incision method, swelling is small and you can feel lift-up effect promptly. This method has no age restriction and can be used by people in their 80s and also for Caucasian patients with advanced sagging.

About double eyelid procedure / upper blepharoplasty

The method of double eyelid is roughly divided into non-cutting(stich-burial) method and incision method. Among them, we are doing a special 3 point fixation method called DST which is durable for a long time. For details, I think that you would like to see this homepage, but the director of our clinic has been using this method for more than 20 years (including the experiences in the US), for well over 1000 people, not only for many Asian people, but also recently for even Caucasian patients to treat as a non-incision method of eyelid’s slack removal.

There are so many attractive people in single eyelids, so it is not recommended to anyone, but the burial method is safe, it is a method to effectively increase the opening of eyes. I think whether you used the tape or glue, but the opening of eyes looks different by slight eyelid change. In our DST burial method, not only in Tokyo, many patients from oversea come to receive the treatment.

On the other hand, if there is a lot of fat on the upper eyelids or if sagging of the eyelid is conspicuous due to aging, it may be clearer to remove extra skin and eyelid fat by the incision method. In that case we recommend incision method from the beginning.

Currently, our office is located only in Tokyo, but many people are coming from afar. Because it is a treatment that can be safely done even for a stay of about 2 days, please consult us.

What kind of operation is the non-cutting double eyelid (burial method)?

Instead of cutting the eyelid skin, make a double line of the upper lids with a small needle and thread underneath the eyelids.

The results of the DST method of double eyelid surgery is durable.

There is also a method to fix with just one thread in a simpler way, but there are times when it can lose the created lines.

The durable three points fixation is obtained by the DST method.

This DST technique is also used to correct the sagging skin of the Caucasian upper eyelids.

How much swelling after non-cutting double eyelids (buried method)?

The non-cutting double eyelid procedure that is a buried stitch method has been used for Asian for many years.

There is no major swelling compared to cutting.
Many people get swollen in 4 or 5 days, but some people take more than 7 days.
(3-4 weeks when cutting off), the shower is allowed from the next day, makeup can be applied from the 2nd day.

This non-cutting upper blepharoplasty can be used for Caucasian people as well for sagging upper eyelid skin.
