5 out of 5 stars Facelift

66 Years Old, Still Working Full Time - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Ho was attentive, she listened patiently with compassion to my concerns and what I hope to achieve with the procedure . She is an artist with great aesthetic sense. She examined my face in great detail and recommended a brow lift procedure to lift my sagging eye lid which will make me look more alert and awake, I asked if I should also have a lower eye lid surgery she told me that it will not improve my look because my eye was not baggy. Dr. Ho then explained in great detail about the procedure of face and neck lift and answered all my questions. Because I had a round place with a flat chin , Dr. Ho recommended that I have my chin slightly augmented, to balance the contour of my face after the neck and lower face skin are pulled back and tighten. I felt that Dr. Ho was very honest and have my interest and well being in mind. When I told my husband about getting the surgery done by a relatively young surgeon, he insisted that I get a second and third opinion. I went for a second opinion from a plastic surgeon who in addition to the brow, face and neck lift, recommended the lower eye lid surgery. I decided to go with Dr. Ho who I felt comfortable with, had endoscopic brow lift, lower mid face and neck lift with chin augmentation on 4/4/16 I was very happy with the result , I had very little pain, I took only two doses of Advil during the entire postoperative course. I returned to work two and half week after the surgery. Among those who made comments- friends, family and coworkers, the sales person at the Clinique Counter whom I have purchased my skin care product from for 15 years all said that I looked younger and natural, the surgeon did a good job. It has been almost two months after I had the procedures, everyday I noticed progress and improvement with my appearance, even though I still have small amount of swelling around the incision. I am glad that I had the procedures done by Dr. Ho .

Best Doctor Ever, Had a Great Experience (Asian Eyelid Surgery). Irvine, CA

I'm glad i chose Dr. Ho for my Asian eyelid surgery. She was very kind, patient, and most of all, honest with everything from the beginning to the end. She communicated clearly with me on what to expect so that I was not taken by surprised by anything in the process. She's also very straight forward and will not pester you to get additional procedures that you do not need, she really cares about her patients and gives recommendations that are suitable to each individual. Thank you Dr. Ho for my new eyelids!

25 Year Old Needing a Change. Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Ho is such an amazing doctor and I was so fortunate to have her. From the moment you meet her it's clear that Dr. Ho knows exactly what she's doing. She has such a great eye and her aesthetic is spot on. She understood me from our first consultation and from that point on I felt like I could trust her. I wanted a noticeable change in my appearance but was still looking to maintain a natural look and Dr. Ho delivered. We were both on the same page when it came to the size of my fold and the result ended up being beautiful. The surgery itself went so smoothly. I recall being nervous on the day of but Dr. Ho put me at ease and the whole thing was over before I even knew it. I'm so happy with my eyes now. I feel like they show who I've always been. My eyes have opened up the rest of my face and I feel so much more confident. It's exactly what I wanted. After the surgery people were telling me "Hey, I forgot how pretty you were" without knowing I had anything done. I am so grateful to Dr. Ho and would recommend her to anymore looking to have eyelid surgery and would even come to her for any other procedures that I would consider having.

Full-Incisional Parallel Eyelid Surgery. Los Angeles, CA

I initially chose Dr. Ho because of all her positive reviews that I came across while doing my research. Also, because I believe that being a woman herself, Dr. Ho will better understand what it is that I want. I knew I was in good hands upon my first meeting with her. I felt that she really understood what I was looking for and genuinely gave me her honest opinions. I felt safe, so much that I wasn't nervous at all going to the surgery room. The procedure went fast and easy with her skills. It took about 30 minutes, I think. The cuts were very precise and clean, while the stitches were done very neatly. My swelling and bruising were very minimal and I credit these to the skillful hands of Dr. Ho. I can now understand all the raving reviews that she has. I'm very happy with my eyes right now, and I would like to thank Dr. Ho for that. I highly recommend Dr. Ho for anyone looking to have their eyelid surgery done.

A Very Uneven, Thick-eyelids, Older Than Actual Age Looking 37 Year Old to Very Young Looking, Big Beautiful Eyes - Los Angeles

Dr. Ho is so humble and honest, and at the same time very professional. During the surgery, she made me so comfortable and every follow-up appointments, she always asked how my eyes feel and if there is any discomforts or anything bugging me. She spent good amount of time and explained every steps of procedure every time I visited and she even gave me the shots by herself that relieves the swell. It has been 1 month since the surgery and I can open my eyes easier, my eyes look beautiful and I look so much younger. I highly recommend Dr. Ho for the Asian eyelid surgery!
