Preoperative Patient Counseling for Cosmetic Blepharoplasty
Cosmetic blepharoplasty is one of the most popular forms of aesthetic surgery of the face. The surgical outcome is intimately related to the interaction of the upper eyelids with the forehead and brows, as well as the lower eyelids, lateral canthi, and the mid-face and cheek’s topography. Therefore, in any discussion and examination of a patient with regard to this form of surgery, an astute clinician should be attentive to the entire face and not confine his or her attention to the superficial upper and lower eyelid skin layers. This awareness of surrounding as well as deeper structures will ultimately yield much better surgical outcome and a happier patient.
