5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Loved the Results! - Fort Lauderdale, FL

Prior to having my upper eyelids done people would ask me if I was tired. It got to the point where I would look in the mirror and feel tired. Thanks to Dr. Felder I feel youthful again. My eyes are open and 10 years have been taken away. There was minimal recovery time, no pain, great staff and treatment. This doctor is amazing. If you want to look refreshed and be happy with your...

Yes, Definitely! - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I am the type of patient that never has had anything done. I was tired of looking and feeling my age. I don't look different, however, everyone I see comments that I look like I've been on vacation! Also people I hadn't seen in 20-25 years told me I looked the same (as I did many years ago)

Amazing and Accurate - Fort Lauderdale, FL

Recommended by my dermatologist. I had upper eyelid surgery and laser on my lower eye area and LOVED the results with Dr. Felder! He listened and thoroughly understood the results I was looking for in the surgery. Dr. Felder met and exceeded my expectations regarding the surgery and results, and was spot on in his accuracy. I look refreshed, not made-over. People cannot tell I had surgery unless I disclose. I would highly recommend Dr. Felder to anyone interested!

59 Year Old Female Extremely Pleased with "New Eyes"!

I was tired of having people tell me I looked tired when I wasn't tired at all. My upper lids were sagging and my eyes looked sad and tired. The skin below my lower lids had some wrinkles and crepiness. After thinking about getting an upper bleph for over 5 years,  I finally decided to do something about it. My fear of a possible bad outcome and going under anesthesia is what kept holding me...

Wonderful Result and Dr. Felder is Great - Fort Lauderdale, FL

My ophthalmologist referred me to him. My ophthalmologist referred me to Dr. Felder for eyelid surgery since he is an eyelid specialist. I had upper and lower lids with laser resurfacing a few months ago. The atmosphere was wonderful in the office and the staff is the best. Dr. Felder did an amazing job with my lids. I couldn't be happier with the look. I would recommend him highly if you are thinking eyelid surgery.

40 Years Old Hooded Eyelids - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I did a lot of research to find the right Doctor and I am so lucky I found Doctor Felder! I thought I was going to need my eyelids and lower eyes done. After meeting Dr Felder he told me I only needed the...

45 Year Old Wanting a Refreshed Look - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I was considering upper eyelid surgery for a couple of years because my eyeliner didn't always stay where I placed it on my upper lids. I put it off because I didn't want to take too much time off from work, I was nervous about having the surgery, and was unsure about the possibility of scars. Dr. Felder was recommended to me by two different people as the best doctor for eyelid surgery.

My Eyes Have Neve Looked Better! - Fort Lauderdale, FL

My Eyelid Surgery with Dr. Felder - Fort Lauderdale, FL

Dr. Felder was recommended to me by several friends that have gone to him and everyone always had something good to say about him and his staff. My first meeting with him I felt comfortable and new I was choosing the right Dr for my procedure. I had eyelid surgery a few years ago and I would definitely recommend Dr. Felder and his staff to all my friends and family. My procedure was a pleasant experience and I was comfortable the whole time. Dr. Felder explained everything to me and answered all my questions. I have gone back to see him several more times and each time spent with him has been a memorable experience.
