5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Perfect Eyelid Surgery - White Plains, NY

Dr. Gordon explained everything in a easy to understand language what to expect during and after the procedure. He even called me the night of the surgery to ask how I was feeling. It made me feel good to know he really cared ! I'd highly recommended Dr. James Gordon!

I found my doctor for life ☺️

I went in for a free consultation that he offered at his west Chester location. I have always been very insecure about my eye bags since I was 15 but it started to bother me when the fine lines started appearing on the bags. I have been to a lot of consultations and most doctors said I would need a lower eye lid surgery and remove the bags. I am the kind of person who is scared of needles so...

Amazing Results

Dr. Gordon did an amazing job on my blepharoplasty. I am a teacher and was frequently told by my colleagues and students that I looked tired. In addition, one of my eyes was always drooping more than the other. With this procedure, Dr. Gordon made my eyes look symmetrical and more alert, but with the perfect amount of subtlety that now that school has started again, not one person has asked if...

Fillers and Botox

I went to see Dr. Gordon due to serious bags under my eyes and deep wrinkles in my forehead. Dr. Gordon was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and skilled. He did not talk me into any unnecessary procedures and in fact convinced me to wait before doing a procedure on my first visit. He wanted to make sure I only did what I felt was necessary and that I would be comfortable and pleased with...

Droopy Right Eye

Things could not have gone more smoothly. Doctor was professional and answered my questions fully, i felt I was in good hands, the staff was excellent and helpful. Recovery was uneventful and quick. Happy with result.

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Undereye Hollows

Dr. Gordon is a godsend. I had a "light fill" done to treat the hollows under my eyes and saw immediate results. I woke up with ZERO bruising. While these may not be typical results, I can attest to his knowledge and training in this area. He was honest and far from pushy. I did quite a bit of research and I'm so grateful I fell into the right hands. I'll be going back in two weeks to complete...

Life changing experience

Dr. Gordon has literally changed my life. Every single day people ask me why I look so tired and if I'm not feeling well. I'm 31 years old and I've inherited my father's saggy, swollen eyes and as I'm getting older it just keeps getting worse. Two months ago I finally decided to fix my insecurity and I went to Dr. Gordon. All of these reviews are 100 percent true. He literally is the...

The Ultimate Choice - DR. GORDON

My experience with Dr. Gordon has been unbelievable. I had surgery with a pushy doctor who encouraged me to have my upper and lower eyelids operated on. I made visits with other doctors who agreed that I needed all 4 eyelids fixed. Dr. Gordon was the ONLY doctor who felt that only my upper lids were bad enough for surgery. I should have listened to him. Instead, I had both upper and lower...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

I had an amazing experience

I am sooo pleased with my results from Dr. Gordon. I had Botox done on the crows feet, lip filler above and on lips and a liquid nose job on top of nose. I couldn't be happier with my results from all. Dr. Gordon was very professional explained everything fully before doing the treatments and made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Gordon.

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Very Satisfying

I am glad that I went to him after reviewing him on Realself.com. I went to him for Restylane fillers to conceal my heavy under eyebags. He did a fantastic job! I am very happy and satisfied with him. I will definitely go back to him again for more fillers over the time.
