During the consultation, Dr. Kurkjian will explain the various options in great detail. He will discuss the type of anesthesia used, the results you can expect and possible risks involved. A complete cosmetic evaluation of your face and eyes will be completed. Dr. Kurkjian will make it a point to understand your aesthetic concerns and specific desires. Taking into consideration your cosmetic goals and hopes for recovery time, Dr. Kurkjian will be able to provide multiple options to fit your specific case.
