So Far So Good - Tucson, AZ

I have had hooded eye lids that just kept getting worse. Over the last year they got so bad (for me) that I started looking into options. It is only Day 9 but I am happy so far!

I am still recovering but...

Quick Lift Procedure - Arizona, AZ

GREAT! Everyone took time to explain what to expect, how the procedure works and it was exactly as explained. Dr. Lo's office staff is the best I have ever worked with. From start to finish it was a pleasant experience, not painful. I had procedure done on a Thursday and I was back to work on the following Monday.
