Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Consultation
Any complex plastic surgery needs to begin with an in-depth consultation for ensuring safe and predictable outcomes. The same holds true for blepharoplasty as well. The initial consultation lays down the required foundation for attaining successful results.
Your surgeon can better understand your goals and develop a personalized surgical plan according to your anatomical and aesthetical needs. During the consultation process, you should openly express concerns and ask questions about the eyelid procedure. The process is designed to enable the patient and surgeon to develop trust and a good rapport with each other.
It’s vital to remember that eyes are the most delicate organ of the body. Therefore, a thorough consultation is vital to determining your candidate for an eyelid surgery procedure. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides eyelid surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Educating patients is a key concern of the plastic surgeon during the consultation. It provides them with the opportunity to educate patients on several aspects of the blepharoplasty procedure. They are also able to recommend a suitable treatment technique and option.
Patients must attain clarity on all possible benefits and risks associated with the surgery. The surgeon will also discuss the estimated costs, insurance, and financing options along with procedural steps.
Aesthetic Goal Setting
One of the primary things that a surgeon gets done during the initial consultation is to understand the reasons why the patient wants the surgery. The surgeon will try and learn all those exact concerns around the eye area that bothers the patient. They will use their observations and findings to develop a customized eyelid surgery plan.
The primary goal of any surgeon is to undertake the cosmetic surgery in a minimally invasive and precise manner. This is done while meeting the aesthetic goals of the patient.
Setting Realistic Expectations
Your cosmetic surgeon will assist you in developing realistic expectations from the blepharoplasty procedure. They will show you eyelid lift before and after images during the initial consultation. It is vital that you review these images closely for developing reasonable expectations.
Health and Anatomical Assessment
The treatment provider will evaluate your past health records and assess your overall condition. They will also examine the eye anatomy, extent of depressions, dark circles, skin elasticity in upper and lower eyelids, skin type, and whether there are any signs of infection. Patients, on their part, should be as forthcoming as possible regarding lifestyle habits and whether they are on any drugs and medications or not.
Patients should list out all prescription and non-prescription drugs as well, including vitamin and herbal supplements. They should mention if they have had any eye surgery performed in the past, such as LASIK.
The surgeon, during the pre-operative consultation will provide the patient with detailed care instructions. The surgeon will require smokers to discontinue the habit for a few weeks before and after the eyelid surgery.
They may also ask the patient to not have certain prescribed medications after discussing it with their physician. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for eyelid surgery.
