Ptosis Repair - Left Eye - Bellevue, WA

- 27 Jan 2013
My left eyelid had begun drooping over the past year or so, due to aging. The upper lid had also begun to appear oddly folded and sunken in. This caused me to be VERY self conscious and was affecting my quality of life. Although I only had a mild case of ptosis I decided to have an oculoplastic surgeon perform corrective surgery. I was awake for the procedure, it didn't last more than 30 minutes, and the recovery was relatively painless - just minor irritation from the sucher underneath my eyelid for a few weeks. I am very pleased with the result and am so happy I opted for surgery. At this time, a decision on insurance coverage is still pending, but the cost was well worth it, regardless.
I wanted a highly skilled ophthalmic surgeon to perform my eyelid ptosis surgery. Dr. Amadi has an extensive resume in oculoplastics, and the Nacify clinic itself has an excellent reputation in the Seattle area. Dr. Amadi was very understanding & knowledgable during my initial evaluation and immediately put me at ease. The surgery itself was flawless. I opted to stay awake and actually enjoyed witnessing all aspects of the procedure. Also, the staff at the Naficy Rejuvenation Center were most helpful and kind during each phase of my care. I am so grateful to Dr. Amadi for making me feel normal again!
