I read posts from others posting their experiences, with several being negative about Dr. Thao. I should have listened. I ended up going in to have upper blepharoplasty done. The doctor took the liberty to try to make my eyelids look more ethnic - and he changed the shape of my eyes. Both eyes are asymmetrical, and he took too much fat out of the upper eyelids. Plus, he had told me during our consultation that he was going to take out X millimeters of skin, but instead, he took a few more millimeters out! On top of that, when he is slicing the eyelid, he didn't follow the curve of the eye, but cut around my eye as if doing a connect the dots game, where there is a line to a dot, line to the next dot, line to the next dot, where my upper eyes doesn't look natural! Plus, he rushed on my second eye, as my spouse had arrived to pick me up. Take note that the pictures he's had on his site have been on there forever! He operates in mass production - and most of his clients choose not to have their photos posted. Why???? His office makes people think they are getting an awesome discount - provides pricing with discounts listed..., they are super friendly; they have a nice office... . But in the end, none of those things add up to the cost it will take to repair your eyelids!! Now, I am looking online to find someone to do orbital fat eye grafting, to put more fat where he took too much off! Don't cheap out - go with someone who knows what they're doing - otherwise, you will end up spending a lot more like me, to do orbital fat grafting!
