What questions should I ask about eyelid surgery?

You don’t let surgery on your eyelids be done lightly. Surgery on the face and especially on the eyes can bring many concerns. Many of these concerns can be addressed by asking the right questions of your practitioner during a consultation.

Use this checklist as a guide during your consultation

  • How much surgery experience do you have?
  • Have you ever worked in a hospital and performed these procedures?
  • Are you academically educated? If so, where?
  • Has the surgical facility been approved by an independent body?
  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
  • What is expected of me to achieve the best results?
  • Where and how will you perform my surgery?
  • Is there a permanent surgical team in place? If so, who will operate on me?
  • Which surgical technique is recommended for me?
  • How long can I expect a recovery period and what help will I need during my recovery?
  • What are the risks and complications of my procedure?
  • What will my eyes look like over time?
  • Do you have before-and-after pictures I can look at for this procedure and are these results representative of me?
