Physical exam needed for Blepharoplasty ?

User Profile
Is a physical exam by my doctor needed before a Blepharoplasty? or will my surgeon give one to me right before the surgery (example examine my stomach and private parts)? Or is nothing needed at all?
Thank you

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

An ophthalmologist will examine your eye and then advise the date of surgery accordingly. General physical exam can be performed. Examination of the private parts would not be required for this surgery/ procedure.

Wishing you best of health
