Laboratory Studies

See the list below:

  • General medical evaluation and clearance for local anesthesia with sedation are required for all patients undergoing elective facial aesthetic procedures.

  • CBC, coagulation, and electrolyte studies are performed at the discretion of the surgeon and anesthesiologist. Generally accepted medical guidelines based on age and clinical conditions should be followed.


Other Tests

See the list below:

  • Some patients have significant visual field obstruction secondary to brow ptosis and upper eyelid skin excess. A referral for visual field studies is indicated in patients desiring possible insurance coverage for brow or forehead lift procedures. Visual field defects are often graded as to severity, and coverage is often based on individual third-party payer criteria. A referral to an ophthalmologist who performs visual field studies on a regular basis is recommended.
