How to Find an Eyelid Surgery Surgeon


Picking the surgeon to perform your cosmetic eyelid surgery is a very important business. The procedure produces a long-term result and is very difficult to reverse, for once you have removed the skin it cannot be replaced easily. Therefore, you want to make sure that you have the best person to carry out your surgery.

Many surgeons are highly skilled in the cosmetic industry but you should always check that they are board certified. Don't be embarrassed to ask for credentials for a good surgeon will always show them to you. It's also a good idea to ask to see before and after photos so that you can see how their procedures have turned out and what kind of results to expect. Most surgeons are highly talented and knowledgeable in the field so ask them any questions that you want as they will be the person to give you the best answer.

A good idea is to get some advice. Your local GP should be able to help you if you visit them as they may have information on local surgeons who perform cosmetic eyelid surgery and who have the best success rate. Also, it is best to research a surgeon, not just their own personal website but by forums as you get personal accounts of their patients. If you know someone who has undergone the surgery then talk to them. Ask them if they are happy with their choice and look at the results. You want to be 100% positive about your choice of surgeon as they are going to be performing surgery on one of the most looked at areas of your body- your face.

Sometimes you might be recommended a surgeon whose title does not cover cosmetic surgery but rather their specialized field is ophthalmics. This is because they are very knowledgeable in the eye area and will know and be able to perform a number of surgeries in that area so they might be more skilled in cosmetic eyelid surgery. However, skill varies from surgeon to surgeon and experience is important.
