At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon – you will see them in clinic, they will do your procedure and see you for follow up. For upper eyelid surgery alone you only need one appointment. This lasts around half an hour and includes specialist assessment and discussion of how we can help you achieve the result you want. We will go through your options for treatment and discuss what is involved and answer any questions you may have. We will show you lots of photographs of our patients who have had eyelid surgery to show you the type of outcome we can achieve for you.
After your appointment we will send you lots of information about your treatment options and provide you with a fixed cost for your package of care. We will then give you time and space to decide what you would like to do. When you are ready our office team will help you book a date for your procedure.
We like to see you for a second appointment if you are having lower eyelid treatment or combined treatment to your upper and lower eyelid, brow lift or mid face lift. This gives you the chance to meet your surgeon again and discuss your procedure in more detail. We will go through all the important information about your treatment, including how we do the procedure and the site and nature of the scars. We will discuss your hospital care, anaesthetic and recovery and your aftercare plan. We will also discuss the potential risks and complications of surgery, so you are fully informed.
A few weeks before your procedure you will have an appointment with our nurses for a pre-operative medical. Our nurses will tell you everything you need to know for the day of your procedure, such as what time to stop eating and drinking, what time to come in to the hospital, and what to bring with you. If you have any questions about these details or anything else then please ask your nurse or feel free to email or call us.
Hints and tips
Do your research
Read up on your treatment options before your appointment. Good sources of information are our website and the BAPRAS website (www.bapras.co.uk) and BAAPS website (www.baaps.co.uk). It can be helpful to read blogs written by people who have had your procedure. But bear in mind they only have experience of their own journey. Your expert Consultant Plastic Surgeon and our experienced nurses have looked after hundreds of patients and have an unrivalled level of knowledge and understanding to help you. Ask us anything you want to know.
Write down a list of questions
In the week before your appointment make a note of any questions you want to ask. We will give you lots of useful information during your appointment. Afterwards we will email you with written information to help you make the right decision and make sure you are fully informed. Don’t worry if you forget what you wanted to ask. We will be seeing you for a second appointment or you can email us at any time.
Can I see photos of your work?
Yes of course. We will show you lots of photographs of our patients who have had blepharoplasty to show the type of improvement we can achieve.
Take some ‘before’ selfies
You might like to take some photos before your procedure to remind you how you used to look! We will also do this on the day of your procedure for your medical records.
Can I get finance?
The private hospitals we work with offer finance for your procedure. Please ask for further details at your consultation or click here for more information.
