5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

Exceeded my Expectations! Sarasota, FL

I reached a point where I had to keep my eyebrows raised all the time to improve my field of vision. I am thrilled with the results! The procedure was explained thoroughly to me beforehand and I received excellent care afterwards and phone calls from Dr. Fezza and staff to check up on me. Very little discomfort too.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

My needs were put first at all times, i never felt rushed, or that i was a burden.
