Whether you have damage to your face because of an accident or injury or there are imperfections that you’ve been dealing with for your entire life, an oculofacial plastic surgeon can usually help. The first step is to find a surgeon who can examine your face and determine exactly what should be corrected. You need to find a surgeon who you can trust and one who is certified in this type of surgery so that you have the best results.
Get recommendations from your family and friends who have seen plastic surgeons. You can also get referrals from your primary care doctor and your insurance company. Read the reviews that are on the surgeon’s website before making a final decision. When you have narrowed down your options, visit the office of the oculofacial surgeon so that you can speak with the doctor and the people who work there. This will give you a better idea of how the doctor interacts with patients. While you’re in the office, you should feel comfortable instead of feeling like you have to make a decision about plastic surgery. When you visit the office, make sure it’s clean and well-kept as this is often an indication as to the personality and professionalism of the surgeon.
Explore the options that you have for surgery and how surgeries are performed. You should have a few ideas about how you want to look and the results that you expect from the surgery. If the oculofacial plastic surgeon doesn’t feel that the result can be achieved, then you could consider finding someone else to talk to or looking at other options for your surgery. Find out if the surgeon only goes to one hospital or if there are privileges at multiple hospitals, especially if there is one that you prefer to go to over another.
Before you go to your consultation with the surgeon you are interested in, make a list of questions and concerns that you have. Take a few pictures with you. Go into the appointment with an open mind so that you can have the face that you want to look at in the mirror. You can also look at pictures of the past work that the surgeon has performed. This will give you a good idea as to whether the surgeon can deliver the results that you’re seeking.
