Putting trust in your oculoplastic surgeon: What to expect from surgery

Posted: Jun 02 2023

The importance of trusting your oculoplastic surgeon

When it comes to oculoplastic surgery, trust is of utmost importance. Entrusting your eyes, eyelids, and face to an experienced and reliable oculoplastic surgeon is crucial for achieving successful outcomes. An oculoplastic surgeon possesses specialised knowledge and skills in both ophthalmology and plastic surgery, making them uniquely qualified to address a wide range of cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions. From eyelid problems to reconstructive surgery following cancer removal, their expertise covers various intricate procedures. By placing your trust in an oculoplastic surgeon, you can have peace of mind knowing that your vision, appearance, and overall well-being are in capable hands.

Selecting an oculoplastic surgeon whom you can trust is essential for your overall experience and satisfaction with the procedure. By choosing a reputable and trustworthy oculoplastic surgeon, you can benefit from their extensive training and expertise. These professionals undergo rigorous education and specialised training in renowned eye hospitals, equipping them with the necessary skills to handle delicate eye and facial surgeries. When you have trust in your oculoplastic surgeon, you can feel confident in their ability to provide you with personalised and tailored treatment options that suit your specific needs. Their empathetic consultative approach and attention to detail ensure that you receive the highest level of care throughout your oculoplastic journey.

What to expect before, during and after your surgery

Before your surgery, your oculoplastic surgeon will spend time with you during a consultation period to understand any concerns or issues you may be having with your eyes. During this time, your surgeon will try to get to the root cause of the problem, and they will examine your eyes thoroughly. Your oculoplastic surgeon will make suggestions based on your concerns and provide advice and guidance should you choose to go the surgical route. Your expectations will be fully discussed to ensure that they are realistic, so you have a clear idea of what they believe can be safely achieved.

On the day of your surgery, your procedure will be discussed in detail, and you will be made comfortable and confident before your surgeon begins. The type of eye surgery you are having will depend on the specific itinerary and the length of the surgery time. Rest assured; you will be monitored throughout your time with your surgeon to ensure you remain comfortable and happy.

Once your surgery has been completed, you may spend a little time in recovery. Your surgeon will discuss the surgery with you, including successes and any challenges that occurred. You will be given strict advice and guidance to adhere to whilst your eyes recover. Once you have been signed off by your oculoplastic surgeon, you will be allowed to go home and rest.
