5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery


Just this week, I took the plunge and got the blepharoplasty that I've been waiting for. Dr. Heher is top notch and I'm so happy that I went to her for my procedure. She's very professional and highly skilled. Dr. Heher is very friendly and approachable. I highly recommend Dr. Heher. I'm only 4 days post-op and my results are amazing!

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Great Experience - Nashua, NH

I've been going to Dr. Heher for years for botox and will definitely use her for blepharoplasty. She will not push procedures that you don't need yet..that speaks volumes about her professionalism. Always explains what she's doing and makes you feel comfortable. You have to schedule early because she's so sought after as she is also a great 'regular' eye surgeon too.

Inherited Bags from my Dad's Side Removed! - Boston, MA

I had both upper and lower bleph in 2006 and Dr Heher did and excellent job!! I expected the swelling and bruising after, but even then I could see how beautiful my eyes were now that my bags were gone! The only regret, is that I didn't do it sooner! It took like 10 or 15 yrs off just by removing the bags and trimming the excess upper lids skin. She really is tops. I had been searching for...

5 out of 5 stars Hyaluronidase

Hyaluronidase Dissolved Overfilled Eye Area 2 Years Later - So Happy! - Boston, MA

I had hyaluronidase put into the eye area under the eye brow almost 2 years ago, and I was happy with one eye, but not really with the other since the doctor put too much toward the inner corner of my eye. He kept saying that I should massage it at the time and then eventually wait for it to get absorbed. It never did. I went abroad for a year and just sort of learned to live with it, but I...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Experienced and Hooked Botox User - Boston, MA

Have been using for years on my forehead and now only need to go 2X per year. I am 60 years old and the combination of Botox and fillers make me look 20 years younger. The longer you use Botox the less often you have to go. I have a friend who did it religiously for years and now she only has to go once a year or even less.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

53 Y.o. Professional - Boston, MA

Dr Katrinka Heher is the best! I had her lift my eyelids a few years ago (4+ yrs now) and I started getting Botox injections shortly thereafter - between the two procedures, it took 10 years off my face! Dr H never recommends doing more than is necessary - she does not upsell her patients - which is easy to do in her position. Her offices are beautiful & her staff is great. I couldn't...

Botox Treatment - Boston, MA

Dr. Heher is wonderful! I had had botox treatments in the past by another doctor, that resulted in a very unnatural look. I was quite anxious to try again, but Dr. Heher put all of my concerns at ease. Her approach is to give you a refreshed, well rested look, as opposed to someone who is unable to make facial expressions. She answered all of my questions, and was very patient with me. I...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

No More Under Eye Bags. Boston, MA

I tried Botox a number of times with different people and felt it never made much of a difference. I then had restylane injected in my under eyes and my bags got bigger! I've never looked worse. A friend told me to go see Dr. Heher and she could help. She changed my life! She melted the bad filler and then with her technique the restylane was perfect and my bags dissappeared. I look great...
