Also known as a blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery improves the appearance of upper and lower eyelids. Aesthetic eyelid surgery can correct fine wrinkles, excess skin, and a swollen appearance that makes eyes appear tired.
When you arrive to your eyelid surgery consultation, Dr. Shuster will ask you about the areas that concern you and what changes you would like to see. He will also inquire about your general health, any medical issues, and whether you have had eye or eyelid surgery before.
After discussing your goals and medical history, Dr. Shuster will begin examining the upper third of your face. He will focus on the following areas:
Following the examination, Dr. Shuster will recommend which procedures will achieve the best possible results for you. This may include an upper eyelid blepharoplasty, lower eyelid blepharoplasty, and a brow lift. Dr. Shuster may also recommend a skin care regimen and Botox to improve the texture of the skin and the presence of deep lines.
Dr. Shuster will explain the recommended procedures in detail, including the expected results and recovery process. You will also have the opportunity to view a large portfolio, so you can see the quality of work Dr. Shuster achieves. This helps you attain realistic expectations. It is Dr. Shuster's goal to be very thorough, and you are encouraged to ask questions.
You will also meet with Dr. Shuster's staff to learn about the scheduling process, preoperative requirements, the costs involved, and if appropriate, select a date for your eyelid surgical procedure.
Your consultation is a perfect environment to share your questions and concerns directly. You can request a consultation with Dr. Shuster at his Hollywood, FL office, or if you are unable to travel to the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area, Dr. Shuster can meet with you virtually.
