5 out of 5 stars Ptosis Surgery

"45 Years Old, with 3 Year Old Twins, Divorced, Ptosis Repair."

My review starts off by my past experience with another surgeon. I unfortunately, had the chickenpox's at the age of 18 which left me with ptosis on my left lid. I was devastated as it seemed to just have happen overnight. My grandmother and I researched to find a specialist. We found a surgeon after a few months, had the proper testing done and consultations and questions answered. A few...

A Very Grateful Patient - Beverly Hills, CA

It is difficult for me to fully describe my gratitude to Dr. Steinsapir for restoring my eyes, and my faith in the medical profession. Two years ago, I had a very unfortunate blepharoplasty with another surgeon who removed too much skin - leaving me with large eyelid platforms, drooping lids, and hollow, rounded, sad-looking eyes. Each and every time I looked in the mirror, I was heartbroken...

5 out of 5 stars Hyaluronidase

Amazing experience. Highly recommend.

I came to dr steinsapir after years of struggling with facial asymmetry due to poorly placed filler after bells palsy. I kept trying to wait for it to go away on its own, or filling in other areas to try to make it look even, but was never happy with the results, as my face just kept looking puffy and bloated. Dr Steinsapir took about two hours with me, between the consult, numbing time and...

Thank you

You just responded to my post and were the only Honest Doctor about my reaction to Botox. Thank you it's somewhat comforting although what I'm experiencing is awful but thank you very much. Most doctors who give Botox should understand this side effect the way you do. I just hope I get better from this

Top Doctor and Extremely Positive Experience All the Way Through

I extensively researched eyelid surgery and every time I read Dr. Steinsaper's answers I could tell he speaks the truth and knows all the intricacies and physiology of the eye. Most doctors answer on the surface but Dr. Steinsapir explains thoroughly and with great detail each issue patients have (whether they've had an unfortunate previous lid surgery or if they're looking to have one in...

Best Decision in 2014 - Beverly Hills, CA

One of the best decisions I made in 2014 was a revision eyelid surgery with Dr. Steinsapir (hereinafter Dr. S). I am thrilled with the results! Here is my story...... My initial eyelid surgery (not with Dr. S) left me with an upper eyelid ptosis. In other words, a droppy eyelid. I lived with my left eye looking half closed for over 3 years because I was afraid of another surgery. When I...

Derma-roller: Is it worthwhile or another waste of money?

Based on a comment I made on Realself, I received the following anonymous letter: “Dr Steinsapir: “I must say that I was quite surprised at your comments on the website Realself re: dermaroller treatments.

Juveni: Stay away and stay safe.

The world is full of shady characters. Do you remember your mother telling you that if something seemed too good to be true, it probably was? That is the case with Juveni. This is an filler product that is slyly being marketed online. While the name seems to be chosen to help you confuse the product with Allergan’s hyaluronic acid filler product Juvederm, this is not Juvederm. Juvederm is a wonderfully researched, thoroughly tested, FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler with...
