Eyelid Surgery Unsatisfactory Results Los Angeles

What Are the Most Common Reasons for Patient Dissatisfaction?

The number one reason for patient dissatisfaction after Blepharoplasty, Brow-Lift, and Mid-Face lift are small asymmetries. Unfortunately, no one ever takes a close and careful look at their face before surgery as compared to after surgery. It is at this time after surgery that they discover the minute differences between their eyes, brows, and cheeks. Most likely, these differences and asymmetries were pre-existing and are normal. No one, however expert, can give you eyes, brows, and cheeks that are absolutely symmetrical and extremely similar. If you feel that you must achieve absolute perfection with your eyelid of facial cosmetic surgery, then don’t do it!

The second most common reason for dissatisfaction is an expectation to achieve immediate results without having to go through a period of swelling, bruising and looking less than your best. Obviously eyelid and facial cosmetic surgery take time to heal, but most people feel rushed to see final results because your face is always visible. Anticipate this and undergo your surgery when the healing process will not disrupt your life.

Seven steps to having a great result with your Blepharoplasty?

  1. Do your research.
  2. Ask questions.
  3. Check your doctor and surgery facility credentials.
  4. Know your goal. What is it that you really want to achieve?
  5. Have realistic expectations. No human can attain perfection!
  6. Follow your doctor’s instructions thoroughly.
  7. Be patient with getting there. You just had real surgery; and you didn’t buy breasts off the rack!

Having said all this, thousands of people undergo eyelid surgery every year and are very happy with their decision. Please remember to take your plastic surgery endeavor seriously. After all, it is no different than any other surgery that you might undergo.
