How it Works
At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.
Although eyelid surgery is considered a minor procedure, a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeons is still key to its success. Consultations are an opportunity to explore a procedure in great depth with one of plastic surgeons by your side.
We’ll discuss your surgery goals, medical conditions, drug allergies, previous surgeries, any issues concerning your eyes, and past medical treatments. It’s also crucial to tell your doctor about your alcohol, tobacco, and drug usage, as these may increase the risk of complications.
Upper eyelid aging occurs due to skin that hoods the crease of the upper eyelid. An evaluation of your eyebrow position and upper eyelid function will be done to make recommendations. Lower eyelid “bags” are fat pockets that bulge. They are not related to your overall weight and are addressed by controlled removal of the fat to improve the contour.
After a thorough evaluation, our doctors will create a customized treatment plan for your Blepharoplasty. The topics of the discussion will include the type of anesthesia, potential risks, probable outcomes, and the recovery period typically involved in a Blepharoplasty. Come prepared with questions to ask our surgeons to ensure that both of you are on the same page with regards to your eyelid surgery.
