Before meeting with a surgeon, you may want to discuss your expectations and concerns with one of our specialist nurses. She will give you information about this procedure and discuss what is involved in detail including post operative care and recovery. She will show you photographs of patients who have had this surgery to help you understand what can be achieved.
During your consultation, our NZIPCS surgeon will ask you about your medical history (especially in relation to visual problems and thyroid disease), current medications, allergies, and any known history of scarring.
He will examine your eyelids and assess skin quality and looseness, muscle tone and activity, the distribution of orbital fat, and the shape of surrounding bony structures.
Photographs are taken before and after your surgery to plan the procedure and to record your results.
