When getting a second or third opinion about a blepharoplasty revision, should I tell my original doctor the information I get?

Getting second opinions and more
are your right and if you're concerned enough to be considering this, you should get one. As for whether to tell your surgeon or not, that is entirely up to you. Your second opinion will provide you just that... an opinion. If you trust your surgeon, let him do his best to help improve your results. If your bulge persists, Thermi can be used to destroy fat as well. If your pre-op photos truly have not changed as you say, your surgeon, if honest, will acknowledge this and try his best to get you the best outcome possible. If there is a big improvement and you're simply looking for perfection, that is a completely different issue and one that is harder to address.
Thank you for your question! It is hard to tell exactly what you will need without a physical examination! I suggest you seek a board certified plastic surgeon and have a consultation, or go back to your original surgeon and discuss your options. Best of luck!
