The judicious Dr. Hustak uses common incisions where possible and places incisions in discreet areas to ensure that any future scarring remains minimal. At times, she may recommend minimally invasive or nonsurgical alternatives to the patient to reduce the invasiveness of the eyelid surgery.


Why Select an ABPS Board Certified Surgeon?

Plastic Surgery Training

Today, many plastic or cosmetic surgeons are licensed to practice. However, they may lack adequate experience and training in performing a certain surgery. This makes it vital for the patient to ensure that their plastic surgeon has experience and skills in performing eyelid surgery.

Patients should ideally choose a practice that specializes in various cosmetic surgery procedures. With continual advancement in eyelid surgery techniques and technologies, the patient should ensure that their surgeon is updated on the latest innovations in the field.


Hospital Privileges

A surgeon with hospital privileges can perform the procedure at a state-licensed, accredited, or Medicare-certified hospital or surgical facility. The surgeon can receive such privileges only with approval from a committee which determines the surgeon’s eligibility based on many factors such as their credentials, training, and expertise.

The patient should make sure that their plastic surgeon has privileges to perform the eyelid surgery at an accredited surgical center or hospital, or undertakes procedures at an accredited private surgical suite.
