I have a consultation scheduled for an upper and lower blepharoplasty. How can I prepare for the consultation so that I know what questions to ask?
If your physician does a good job during the consultation and you have reviewed their website, shouldn’t have many questions left to ask. The important questions to ask however are: 1) Are you board certified and by what board? In my opinion, the appropriate board certification for blepharoplasty is the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Board of Plastic Surgery, or the American Board of Ophthalmology. 2) How often to your perform blepharoplasty? How long have you been doing it? How many have you done? 3) What type of anesthesia? 4) What are the procedure details and why? 4) How long is the recovery? 5) What are the risks? 6) If something doesn’t go right how is that handled? I am sure there are other questions, but if you answer the above you will be a long way towards a good decision.
