Before surgery, you will come to the hospital to meet your surgeon. You will have lots of time to talk about what you hope to achieve. Your surgeon will give your face, and particularly your eyes, a thorough examination and discuss what can be achieved. They will also take a medical history, and it is particularly important to notify them of conditions such as thyroid disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and glaucoma, as these can affect how treatment is carried out. There is no obligation to go ahead with surgery if you or your doctor decide that it isn’t in your best interests.
