How to Choose Your Blepharoplasty Surgeon?
How do I choose my blepharoplasty surgeon is a common question that patients ask me and with this page. I’m going to give you a few suggestions points to help us, to help you make the right decision for you and blepharoplasty. It’s a common facial cosmetic procedure, and in good hands, it can result in a natural rejuvenation with a relatively fast recovery and patients are very happy after the surgery. Having said that we’ve all seen celebrities who look very different after plastic surgery, and often it’s their eyelids that have been changed throughout the surgery and more than 20% of all the eyelid surgery. I do is revision surgery from patients who had surgery elsewhere.
It does require you taking some time and doing some research to find the best surgeon for you. In terms of tips that, I would take into account when finding the right blepharoplasty surgeon for you, firstly I’d look for a surgeon who specializes only in the face and body plastic surgeries such as breast surgery. Body surgery is surgeries of centimeters; eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is real surgery of millimeters.
Us as human beings can see the difference of less than 1 millimeter between the right and left sides of the eyes. It’s important to find a surgeon who specializes in this area and does a lot of this surgery. Secondly, the artistic ability or techniques of different surgeons vary and a good way to identify. The artistic merits of your potential surgeon is to look at their before and after photographs and see how that relates to you. Another way is also to request to speak to past patients.
This is a more contemporary view but asking your surgeon to speak to a patient of his who’s already undergone surgery, is a way of reassuring you and making sure that the, your surgeon is going to take good care of you during the procedure and the aftercare. Another aspect is choosing a surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery as opposed to reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery really is a surgery of millimeters and the techniques and skills required to perform excellent cosmetic surgery can be quite different to reconstructive surgery, such as tumor repair, trauma repair, which the cosmetic result is only secondary to the functional outcome; the sort of, when we look at the detail of cosmetic surgery around eyelid surgery, there’s a very large number of potential procedures.
Just to give you an example, there’s upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, hidden incision, Transconjunctival blepharoplasty, male blepharoplasty, Asian blepharoplasty, associate techniques such as fat transfer, fat transposition, CO2 laser, and many other types of eyelid surgery as well And so you really want to find a surgeon who specializes in all of these eyelid techniques to ensure that they can give you the best possible result and a natural-looking rejuvenation.
Another aspect is revision surgery and all surgeons who perform surgery will have a degree of patients who require revision surgery, but you don’t want to have, to have revision surgery unless it’s necessary. You want to have a surgeon who has a relatively low chance of revision surgery, over 20% of all the surgery that I do in terms of blepharoplasty is revision blepharoplasty for patients who’ve had surgery elsewhere, and that can be in the UK or even abroad. Another aspect is reading online reviews and literature about your potential surgeon.
In this day and age, we live in a world of transparency and there’s so much information out there about potential surgeons, and you can do a significant amount of research before even going to consultation. The final aspect I would say is communication and it’s important that you feel rapport with your potential surgeon and you have a feeling. That surgeon is listening to you through the consultation process, can achieve what you’re looking to achieve and also will be there for you after the surgery and something. I take a great deal care of is seeing every one of my patients throughout the post-operative period, and that is important to the patients who I treat.
I think overall, take your time when considering Blepharoplasty, do a sufficient amount of research to find the best surgeon for you, because it’s worth it. Your face is, is important and it’s better to do this surgery once and do it well, and so I would take your time and research your potential surgeon before undergoing blepharoplasty. I hope this information has been useful for you, and if it has, I would be grateful if you were to give me a thumbs-up, and I look forward to doing future videos in the future.
