Before scheduling the surgery, your eye surgeon will discuss –
• Your Concerns: A frank discussion with the surgeon regarding your concerns and expectations from the surgery will help achieve the desired outcome.
• Your Medical History: Your surgeon may ask you a few questions related to your past surgery or present situation, such as diabetes, thyroid problems, circulatory problems, glaucoma, dry eye and allergies. He/she will ask you about your medicines or daily supplements.
Moreover, your doctor may conduct some tests to examine your physical periorbital region (eyebrow-to-cheek-to-nose) and to determine if you can safely undergo this Blepharoplasty surgery and if it is practically possible for him/her to modify or correct the aesthetic and functional aspects as suggested by you. Your eyes will be captured in camera from various angles to help plan the surgery and evaluating its long-term and immediate outcomes.
