5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

One of the Best Experiences - Woodbury, NY

Dr. Schlessinger takes his time and speaks to you in terms you can understand. The outcome was explained in detail and his follow up with after care is exceptional. Dr. Schlessinger's staff treated me with respect and privacy which I look for in a Doctor and his office staff. Thank you Schlessinger Eye & Face.

Amazing Results of Upper & Lower Blepharplasty - Woodbury, NY

I had heard about this doctor from someone else who had a serious eye surgery procedure with him and had remarkable results. Before the surgery, I researched and met three board certified plastic surgeons with great reputations. I chose Dr. David Schlessinger since he was the only Occuplastic Surgeon (Ophthalmologist who specializes in reconstructive & cosmetic eye and facial surgery). Dr. Schlessinger thoroughly explained how he would perform the procedure; what to expect during the healing process and when I could expect to see the results. His pre-op instructions, and post follow up care make for an amazingly swift recovery. I’d highly recommend the skilled and talented Dr. David Schlessinger for eye surgery.
