                                                                          About Eyelid Surgery

We, of course, hope you will choose Tri Valley Plastic Surgery for your plastic surgery needs, but we
encourage patients to speak with other physicians as well. We have compiled a list of questions that
should be helpful if you decide to talk to other doctors.

  1. Am I a good candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

  2. Are my described expectations realistic?

  3. Where is the surgery performed?

  4. How long will the procedure take?

  5. What kind of anesthesia is used?

  6. What is your experience in performing Eyelid Surgery?

  7. Are you a board certified plastic surgeon? Can I see your qualifications?

  8. Ask to see any Eyelid Surgery before and after photos of recent surgeries?

  9. What percentages of your Eyelid Surgery patients have had significant post-surgical complications?
     (Surgeons should disclose this information to you.)

 10. Who will be assisting my surgery? Can I see their qualifications?

 11. How much will my Eyelid Surgery cost?

 12. Do you offer patient financing?

 13. Will you repeat/correct procedures if the agreed goals are not met? If this is the case, will I be
     charged again?

 14. What is the recovery and healing period for Eyelid Surgery? When can I resume full normal activity?

 15. Have you ever had your malpractice insurance coverage denied, revoked, suspended?

 16. Ask for and follow up on patient references (these can be invaluable to finding out what your surgeon
     is really like and the level of customer satisfaction he/she has received in the past).
