“The eyes are the window to your soul”
Cosmetic surgery is a popular elective procedure that aims to enhance one's appearance. Patients often seek cosmetic surgery to look rejuvenated, refreshed, or more youthful. Oculofacial plastic surgeons are experts in this field, having undergone fellowship training and being members of the prestigious Oculofacial Society. These surgeons have thorough medical and surgical knowledge of the eyes and surrounding tissues and have performed numerous successful operations on periocular and facial tissues. Dr. Paul Phelps, MD FACS, is a master in oculofacial plastic surgery and can guide you through your cosmetic surgery journey, providing trusted opinions on your specific case.
The eyes are often the first feature that people notice when they look at themselves or others. That is why when evaluating patients, oculofacial plastic surgeons thoroughly assess the eyes and the rest of the face. By measuring the specifics of your face and assessing the health of your eyes, surgeons can objectively determine the possible treatments that can safely achieve your goals.
At Chicago Oculofacial Plastic Surgery, we understand that each patient's goals for eyelid and facial rejuvenation are unique. During your initial consultation, we will take the time to understand your specific concerns and goals. Some patients come in without any particular concern and simply want an honest opinion on how to look refreshed and natural. Others have specific issues that have been bothering them, often for a long time. Once we have a good understanding of your goals, we will conduct a thorough examination of your eyes and facial tissues to assess your overall health and eye health. We will take clinical photos and review with you the issues that are concerning and discuss in detail the options available in your case. In most cases, we can offer long-lasting improvements with an operation. Sometimes, we find that less invasive options are more appropriate. Our consultation fee is $250, which covers the time of our staff and use of our equipment. If you and the doctor decide to proceed with a surgical treatment, this fee will be applied to the cost of the procedure.
