Eyelid surgery is a delicate procedure as it involves the eyes. Therefore, patients should choose a highly experienced and skilled surgeon for eyelid lift plastic surgery (blepharoplasty).
Why Select a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?
Upon choosing a board certified plastic surgeon for an intricate procedure such as eyelid lift surgery, the patient is assured that the surgeon would have received a minimum number of years of training in the area of plastic surgery.
Surgeons with certification from the respected American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) will invest in top-notch quality standards and best surgical practices, adopt the most advanced surgical technologies and techniques and pursue on-going education to upgrade their skills.
It is important for the patient to work with a surgeon who has specialized training. However, it is also vital to understand if the surgeon has sufficient practical experience in eyelid lift cosmetic surgery.
In case the patient is interested in a particular type of blepharoplasty or seek additional procedures such as brow lift, they should identify a plastic surgeon with experience in these specific procedures.
Desirable Attributes of an Eyelid Surgeon
- Easy to converse with, compassionate, warm
- Inclined to provide the patient with detailed information on the surgery
- Impassioned about the idea of making a positive difference in the patient’s life through cosmetic surgery
- Provides personalized attention and care to every patient
- Capable of understanding the aesthetic needs, hopes, aspirations, and desires of the patient
- Possesses detailed knowledge of the eye and face anatomy
- Has artistic sensibilities with a sense of balance, form, and proportion
- Utilizes the latest techniques to make sure that the blepharoplasty is minimally invasive and causes as little scarring as possible
Focus on Customization and Innovation
Every individual has unique facial characteristics. This makes it important for the surgeon to customize the procedure depending on the unique anatomical and aesthetic needs of the patient. Patients experience the highest rates of satisfaction when the procedure is individualized to create more comprehensive and natural results.
In general, plastic surgeons who focus on regularly updating their skill set and knowledge by educating themselves on the latest surgical techniques and state-of-the-art technologies provide their patients with beautiful results.
The use of advanced procedures is most beneficial for the patient as these techniques are usually an improvement over previous ones. The use of innovative solutions allows procedures to be less painful and minimally invasive with lower risks and faster recovery times.
The certification and background of the surgeon is a vital factor when considering a surgical procedure. However, the surgical venue is an equally important consideration. Blepharoplasty should be ideally performed at a hospital or a surgical center that is accredited by the American Associations for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Centers.
