In his series Blepharoplasty 101, Beverly Hills oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Guy Massry, will discuss everything you need to know before undergoing cosmetic eyelid surgery. In the first video of the series, Dr. Massry discusses the importance of having realistic expectations for your surgery.
Many people, both patients and surgeons, overlook the importance of establishing realistic expectations for blepharoplasty results. Every patient has a different idea in mind for how they want to look after cosmetic eyelid surgery, and it is critical that the patient clearly relays this vision to their surgeon in order to determine if the desired outcome is attainable. One of the most common reasons patients are not happy with their blepharoplasty results is because their expectations were not realistic.
At Dr. Massry’s practice, he estimates that he only performs blepharoplasty on 3 out of every 10 patients who want the procedure. The reason is that he feels he cannot meet the expectations of 70% of patients. This happens for many reasons.
The eyes are the window to the soul; they are important for vision. A mistake in this area is not ok!
During a consultation with a surgeon, make sure that your expectations can be met so that you are happy with the results!
