Preoperative evaluation for periorbital surgery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An effective preoperative evaluation is critical to the success of aesthetic surgery for the periorbital region. This review emphasizes important history questions and examination techniques, including advice for the nonophthalmologist surgeon, to help avoid ocular complications. Aesthetic surgery of the periocular area is a rewarding endeavor for both the patient and surgeon. Proper preoperative evaluation helps to avoid some of the pitfalls of operating in this delicate area and increases the likelihood of a positive outcome.
