A simple, minimally invasive stitch method to construct the superior palpebral fold in Asian upper eyelids is described. With the use of a clear 6-0 monofilament polypropylene suture and a continuous stitch and by securing multiple consecutive transcutaneous intratarsal fixations, we were able to produce a consistent, natural result with high success rates and no noticeable scarring in 1648 cases over a 9-year period at 2 surgical centers in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and Chengdu, China.
