Whenever you get plastic surgery — or any surgery — one of the most important decisions you will make is selecting your surgeon. And unless you’ve had quite a few procedures in the past, you might be at a loss as to how to do this. How do you pick an eyelid plastic surgeon

You want a qualified plastic surgeon for your surgery. If they have these three qualities, chances are you’ll love your results.

Don’t stress! If you make sure your surgeon has these three must-have qualifications, you should be happy with your experience. 

  1. They Are ASPS Certified

    The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is a professional organization that only admits surgeons who meet pretty high standards. These include:

    • Having a medical degree from an accredited medical school.
    • Being board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
    • Having completed six years of surgical training and three years of plastic surgery residency.
    • Passing the ASPS comprehensive oral and written exams.
    • Keeping up with continuing education on a yearly basis. 
    • Strictly performing surgery in accredited surgical facilities.
  2. They Are Experienced with Your Procedure

    Plastic surgeons can be generalists, and should be trained to perform a wide variety of procedures. However, some lean towards specific types of surgeries. Since eyelid surgery is a facial rejuvenation surgery, you want to specifically look for facial plastic surgeons.

  3. You Have a Good Rapport with Them

    You don’t need to be buddy-buddy with the surgeon you choose. However, you do want to feel open and comfortable with them. This is key to communicating your desires for your surgery and getting the results you want.
