Idaho Eyelid and Facial Plastic Surgery offers both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Consultation, or the initial meeting between patient and surgeon, is a vital part of our medical practice and we take the process seriously. It begins with you…we record your medical history and learn about your primary concerns/conditions. Perhaps you have located a suspicious lump on your eyelid, or you are concerned with always looking tired despite being energetic. During consultation, you access our highly trained specialists to diagnose your medical conditions and learn about potential approaches to address your concerns. This is your time to ask questions and get comfortable with our oculofacial plastic surgeons.

Some questions that might guide your consultation process:

  • What are the indications for surgery?
  • What are the costs? 
  • What are the benefits… will the recommended surgery fix my concern?
  • What are the risks?
  • What is the recovery process like?
  • Are there alternatives to surgery to correct the problem?
  • How many of these surgeries has the medical provider performed? 
  • Are there procedures to address some of my other concerns at the same time?

In short, the consultation process at Idaho Eyelid and Facial Plastic Surgery is a time to establish a personalized treatment plan, offer expert advice, and promote the best patient outcomes. It is also a time to plan coordination with your other health care providers, as needed. While we may recommend surgical procedures to best treat your condition, we also focus on providing comprehensive care to achieve natural results. At Idaho Eyelid and Facial Plastic Surgery, consultation is essential to patient care and our goal is that you have confidence in our practice when you walk out the door.
