The question “Am I a good candidate for Eyelid Surgery?” Is a question many patients who undergo cosmetic surgery need to ask themselves.
When we see people with eyebrows that are drooping, we tend to make some mental connection with that. But we need to be careful when making such a connection. The condition is not the same as an unhealthy look of the eyelids. A drooping eye brow is not indicative of a person’s overall health or ability to cope up with life.
The first thing to consider is the patient’s lifestyle and how the condition will affect it. While you may suffer from a severe case of drooping eyelids, this does not necessarily mean that you cannot take care of other aspects of your life well. But this condition will definitely impact your ability to carry out normal day to day activities. So it is important that you look at the condition objectively and then think of ways in which you can handle the condition.
As far as health issues are concerned, you should make sure that you are taking good care of yourself. You should be following a healthy diet, exercising regularly and staying fit. If your eyes have drooping because of of these reasons, you should immediately consult your doctor and seek medical assistance. Once you have consulted your doctor, you must find out if the condition is curable.
If your eyes are drooping because of some kind of an underlying condition, it would be more likely that you are not a good candidate for Eyelid surgery. Most cosmetic surgeons will not recommend surgery to those who do not have an underlying condition. You may not be aware of this but you may be doing something that will only lead to more damage to your eyes. So if you do not have any eye problems and you can carry on with your day to day activities, you may be able to treat your eyes without surgery.
If you feel that you are not a good candidate for Eyelid Surgery, you should keep all these things in mind and think of alternatives before opting for surgery. In this situation you should consult your doctor to discuss the options with him and if he decides that you should go ahead with the surgery. Then he can explain to you the procedure and the risks involved. So always be prepared for any surgery.
