What questions should I ask my oculoplastic surgeon?
Questions you need to post to a perspective surgeon are undertaking your oculoplastic surgery. That would be what training your oculoplastic surgeon had in this area. Are they experts in the area of culoplastic surgery? What are their results? What are their complications? Can they manage these complications themselves? These are very important questions in the field of eyelid, eyebrow lifting surgery. It’s very helpful to ask whether the surgeon has an expertise in oculoplastic surgery, a specialised surgery around the eyes. Why? Because any oculoplastic surgery undertaken around the eyes can have implications for the patient’s vision, for the patient’s eye comfort and such an expertise is widely sought now by patients.
