Gathering Information
on Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery





Gathering Information


Once the desire is sparked to enhance the appearance of the eyelids, the information gathering stage begins. The internet is a good place to start since good general information can be found about blepharoplasty or cosmetic eyelid surgery on many websites, hopefully including this one. Websites are particularly useful for learning about the considerations for surgery, the risks and benefits of surgery, the recovery period after surgery, and the credentials of various surgeons.


blepharoplastyOnce the general information is gathered it’s time to find out how one’s unique personal characteristics fit into the picture. In other words, it’s time to set up a consultation so that the eyelid plastic surgeon can evaluate one’s specific medical history, anatomy, and expectations. In collaboration with the surgeon, it can be determined if there is a high chance for satisfying expectations.


A logical choice for considering surgery around the eyes is an ophthalmic plastic surgeon. An ophthalmic plastic surgeon (or cosmetic eyelid surgeon) is a surgeon who specializes in surgery of the eyelids. These are surgeons who first undergo training as an eye surgeon and then train specifically as plastic surgeons of the eyelids.
