If you do not want to do a procedure by all means do not have it done.

Blepheroplasty  September 11, 2012 11:43 AM

It sounds that you are having blepheroplasty because of restricted field of vision and the insurance will be covering the cost.
The droopy brow does contribute significanly to the crowding of the upper lid, and a brow pexy may help a lot.
However if you are not convinced, you can refuse the brow pexy. You can also get another opinion to put your mind at ease.

No doctor can force you to have a procedure you don't wish to have. Have another discussion with your surgeon and if not happy with what you hear, don't forget there are many other doctors who would like to care for you.
Good luck from NYC.

unneeded procedure?  September 11, 2012 5:56 PM

You cannot be forced to do any procedures you do not want. The surgeon's job is to give the patient the pros and cons of any procedure and it is for you to decide what you want to do. You need to communicate with your surgeon your desires so you and he/she can be on the same page. I'm sure he/she would understand.

No one can FORCE you to do anything. Sounds like a "breakdown" in communication between you and your surgeon.
