5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Great Outcome and Wonderful Bedside Manner - Chicago, IL

I have suffered from a drooping left eye for years. As it runs in the family, I only have to look at my mom to see what I will look like in the future. I had both eyes done at Central Dupage Hospital where the care was excellent as well. I followed his detailed pre and post proceedure directions and had very little bruzing or pain. I did work at home for a couple of weeks and then was able to...

Great Bedside Manners and Excellent Surgeon! - Naperville, IL

Botox Experience - Naperville, IL

I tried Botox several years ago because I was unhappy with the lines between my brows and on the corners of my eyes. Although I wanted to try it, I was worried about looking fake and unnatural and I expressed this to Dr. P. He listened carefully and injected conservatively, per my request. The results were amazing. The lines were removed completely and my entire face looked brighter, more...

I Am a Believer! - Naperville, IL

I had botox done for two vertical lines between brows. I am in my late thirty and I noticed these lines about two years ago and it started to really bother me. I wanted to see someone who is an expert for treating this region and figured that eye plastic surgeon would be a great choice. my doctor told me that it takes about 2 weeks to see the maximum effect. I didn't bruise or swell at...

Good As New! - Wheaton, IL

After having MOHS surgery to remove basal cell cancer on my lower eyelid, Dr. Pak expertly reconstructed my eyelid in what I would say was a complicated surgery. After just a few months, no one could tell that I had anything done! Because my eye had to be sewn shut for 6 weeks, I was pretty apprehensive about the ordeal, but Dr. Pak's reassurance and awesome bedside manner made the experience...

Botox to Masseter for TMJ and Jaw Slimming - Chicago, IL

I found Dr. Pak through RealSelf. I had been looking for a doctor in my hometown who did the Botox injection into the masseter (jaw muscles) to help stop grinding and clenching in my sleep. This is an off-label but common use of Botox, especially in the Asian community. Unfortunately I was unable to find any dentist or plastic surgeon in my city who does this injection, so I drove to...

11 Mad-tired Look. Wheaton, IL

Just like everyone else I started to worry about my "11 mad-tired"  look when people at work started commenting about how tired I always  look regardless of a very relaxing day or weekend...but I really don't mind them that much. It all started when I woke up 1 beautiful  morning and my 5 yrs old son had this worry/about to cry look in his face as I was preparing his breakfast  I asked him wha...

DCR Surgery |Eleanor 73 - Wheaton, IL

After seeing several doctors regarding (all I knew) a watering eye, I was told I was on the verge of going blind. I was scared, confused, and unsure of what to do. Thankfully I was referred to DR. Pak - who was informative, compassionate, thorough, and professional. Dr. Pak recommended that we follow through with DCR surgery (aka tear duct surgery), to aid in the preservation of my sight. ...
